Avi Mori – My Father, My Teacher

“V’Nafsho keshurah b’nafsho – His [Jacob’s] soul was bound to his [Benjamin’s] soul.” The father’s soul was bound to his son’s. Never forget that, my precious light,” my father said to me. “My soul is forever connected to yours.”

Q & A: A Kohen’s Prayer (Part IV)

Question: Sefer Chareidim (ch. 67) cites a Midrash that Eliyahu once testified that a certain kohen who begged G-d for righteous sons merited to see all of them serve as high priests, and none of them died during his lifetime. Where exactly is this Midrash? Nathan

Perceptions

The challenge of coming home to a house full of little kids and being barely able to function threatened to overwhelm me.

Halfway Houses (Arei Miklat) (Makkot 11a)

Once inside the ir miklat, the law prohibited the goel hadam from avenging the deceased’s blood.

Improbable Endings And The Defeat Of Despair

Parshat Vayeshev has the form of a Greek tragedy. Judaism is the opposite of tragedy. It tells us that every bad fate can be averted and that despair is never justified; today’s curse may be the beginning of tomorrow’s blessing.

Without Intimidation

On Parshat Vayeishev with a nod to Chanukah.

Celebrating The Non-Celebrated

There are many who celebrate the wise, the heroes, and the mystics, and they forget that we must also celebrate the typically non-celebrated, the people who keep the spirit alive, the very spirit that nurtures the more celebrated.

Redeeming Relevance: Vayeshev: Yosef’s Field of Dreams

Yosef’s struggle with his brothers was ideological, whether we are to influence the world by example from the private and safe existence of our tent (the brothers), or whether take more risks by going outside and being heavily involved with the rest of civilization (Yosef)

On Guard

Yaakov was the epitome of a shomer.

Remembering Irene

Rebbetzin Jungreis (a”h) column, initially posted upon the death of her beloved friend Irene Klass, is reprinted here as a memoriam to Irene Klass, longtime publisher of The Jewish Press, whose yahrzeit is this week. May both their memories be a blessing.

The Merit Of Eretz Yisrael

While his only motivation may have been to earn a living for himself, he is providing a substantial gain to those he does business with. In this scenario, $850,000 of his efforts are going to vendors, suppliers, and employees. An

Shabbos Protection

In the very beginning of his introduction, the author writes that it is crucial for a person to trust in Hashem because if he doesn’t, then Hashem will remove His direct and special providential care.

Daf Yomi

Leprosy? ‘Any Kohen Who Is Not An Expert…’ (Shavuos 6a)

Increased Rates

You are only required to pay what she charged in the past, answered Rabbi Dayan. However, I would recommend reaching a compromise with her.

My Father’s Chin (Nazir 40b)

In addressing the question of which devices may be used to remove one’s beard without violating the Torah prohibition, halachic literature focuses on the extent to which these devices function like a razor blade.

Locked Out

I felt good to be able to help out like this and was grateful for the opportunity. If we could not be together for yuntif this year at least I could contribute in this way.

String Theory

Have you ever noticed that you have some mitzvah that not only finds you but seems to follow you around?

Is A Wife Responsible For Her Husband’s Debts? (Siman 77:10)

The husband or his heirs will then have the right to sue the wife as co-borrower for reimbursement of the money they repaid on her behalf.

Maintaining Our Identity In The Face Of Illicit Behavior

Rav Shmuel explained that if we would understand that we are an elevated nation our task in this world would be so much easier.

The Struggle Of Faith
