T’shuva Starts at Home!

computer 2

And now, my Lord, I didn’t listen to Your voice, and I followed after the counsel of the evil inclination… and not only did I not sanctify my organs and limbs, but I made them impure.

You created in me a brain and a heart, and fashioned in them the faculty of thought to think good thoughts and pure contemplations, and a heart to understand your holy words, and to pray and pronounce every blessing with pure intentions. And I made them impure with evil thoughts and foreign contemplations.

And worse than this, through my evil fantasies and foreign thoughts, I came to spill my seed in vain, both by accident and knowingly, through impure seminal emissions that make the whole body impure. And through emitting this seed, I created spiritual agents of destruction (michablim) which are called the plagues of the sons of man.”

Now, before Rosh HaShanah, is the time to clean up our camps. At the www.jewishsexuality.com website, we have gathered a library of lifesaving information on this topic, with many important translations, practical guidance, and illuminating questions and answers. The renowned Kabbalist, the holy Rabbi Yaacov Abuchatzera, of blessed memory, grandfather of the Baba Sali, writes that t’shuva starts here.

May this word to the wise be sufficient.

  1. This is a wonderful piece! I borrowed the Devarim quote for the post on importance of Shmirat Habrit. All that is Tahor may it in increase in our midst and all that is Tame, may it disappear.

  2. Liad Bar-el says:

    Though we should guard against evil at all times, it is particularly important to take such precautions in war. The accusations of Satan may prevail in a situation of danger (Jerusalem Talmud, Shabbat 2:6, Rashi).
