  1. Well, Hashem could help us find compatible mates, that way he wouldn’t have to cry on our behalf. Divorces aren’t gotten for fun, but because there is either a grave and insurmountable mismatch, or life circumstances which part people who’d like to stay together, but can’t.

    Great post Tzvi and as I read your last sentence “May Hashem have mercy on His People, and return His Divine Presence to Zion with the rebuilding of the Beit HaMikdash, may it be soon” my Shabbat studies/review today came into mind. Exodus 25:8 “Let them make Me a sanctuary, and I will dwell among them.” From MeAm Lo’Ez Vol 9 pg 26, “G-d literally said that if the Israelites make the Tabernacle, ‘I will dwell inside them.’ Since he was speaking of the Tabernacle, He should have said, ‘I will dwell inside it.’ But this teaches that the main element of the Tabernacle was not the boards and other materials out of which it was built. The main element was the purity of heart on the part of the Israelites who built the Tabernacle. They had to be good, G-d fearing Jews, and spiritual people. Then they would be able to cause the Divine Presence to dwell inside them – literally – since they would be closely attached to G-d.”.

    So, getting back to your article, Tzvi, looking at porn and/or sinning in other ways will drive away the Divine Presence from the individual and thus keep the Tabernacle destroyed. The commandments were given to us so as to be kept in Israel; so, by you coming to Israel, which is a big mitzvah, helps rebuild the Beit HaMikdash. May you all come to Israel soon.

    Dear Yehuda, I am Tzvi’s wife. I don’t have a facebook account so I am using his. Let me assure you that my husband is a real sweetheart, as loving and considerate as could be, always trying to help others, always filling our house with guests and doing everything he can to bring people closer to Israel and Torah. I am aware that sometimes he says controversial things that can upset people, and I tell him to soften his tone, but he believes that some people are so far away they have to be shaken up in order to break through their walls. He’s a wonderful guy! You just have to learn to appreciate his sense of humor, that’s all.

    Tzvi Fishman: “I have been married nearly thirty years now to the same wonderful, emotional, sensitive, and sometimes stubborn, irrational, and tempestuous woman. My wife has studied the subject enough to have become a practicing marriage counselor and coach herself. A woman has radar and senses when she has been slighted or betrayed.”.

    Warning! Radar Overload! CRASH! BANG! Mrs. Fishman, get your husband to retract these words from the blog. In all of the years that Tzvi has been posting, we have not heard one word from you; so, you must be a woman with a tolerance and patience of steel. You should be awarded the prize that Tzvi got for his book for without you it would not have happened. Kol HaKavod!

    Thank you Tzvi Fishman's wife. Is your name Sara? Shavuah Tov!
