Hashem Hears Our Tefillos


Lessons-logo

The following inspiring story was told to Rochelle Rothman by her close family member. It truly shows how Hashem runs the world, and helps us in all of our endeavors.

It was another great trip to Eretz Yisrael for Sukkos, as it was wonderful and spiritually satisfying to be able to daven by the Kotel for Yom Tov. What was especially meaningful for me was to daven for the people on my long Tehillim list that I carry with me. I really felt as if I had a closer connection to Hashem. I prayed that all of their painful issues would be resolved by the Almighty.

My husband and I visited many of our relatives and friends who reside there.

We met some interesting people on the flight home that, Baruch Hashem, was uneventful. It felt good to get home, even though I had to go straight to my job from the airport.

It was quite crowded going through customs, being that the push to get through was strong. Since it was a very early flight, it seemed that I was not the only one who was arriving from Israel and going straight to work.

As soon as we got out of that initial area, I realized that I was missing my extra bag – the one I carry with me, filled with all of my siddurim and my special Tehillim list (of which I don’t have a copy). Even the sefer I use is special to me. I quickly asked the guard if I could go back to get it. He said that I would have to wait until the hundreds of people got through first. But that could take at least another hour, and I needed to get to work! What should I do?

I called my daughter. She said she would call the airport’s Lost and Found Department later that day. I told her to put money in the Rabbi Meir Baal Haness pushka and say the pasuk to find lost articles.

I proceeded to my job in Manhattan. About half an hour passed when I received a phone call from my husband. He excitedly explained that a woman had called him with the great news that she had my missing bag!

He said that she was on line behind me at the airport and noticed an unclaimed bag just sitting there. She looked inside, noticed the sefarim, took them with her, and planned to try to locate the owner. She looked in the siddur and, lo and behold, she saw my husband’s cell phone number.

My husband picked up the bag in Boro Park where the woman lived.

It’s amazing to witness how Hashem answers our tefillos while showing us the attributes of the beautiful mitzvah of hashavas aveidah at the same time.

Mi K’amcha Yisrael!

First, how could a beis din of 23 judges present a guilty verdict in a capital punishment case? After all, only a majority of the 23 judges ruled in favor of his verdict.

Of paramount importance is that both the king and his people realize that while he is the leader, he is still a subject of God.

Question: The Gemara in Berachot states that the sages authored our prayers. Does that mean we didn’t pray beforehand?

When a person feels he can control the destiny of other people, he runs the risk of feeling self-important, significant, and mighty.

Needless to say, it was done and they formed a great relationship as his friend and mentor. He started attending services and volunteered his time all along putting on tefillin.

He took me to a room filled with computer equipment and said, “You pray here for as long as you want.” I couldn’t believe my ears.

On Friday afternoon, Dov called Kalman. “Please make sure to return the keys for the car on Motzaei Shabbos,” he said. “We have a bris on Sunday morning and we’re all going. We also need the roof luggage bag.”

On Chol HaMoed some work is prohibited and some is permitted. According to some opinions, the work prohibition is biblical; according to others, it’s rabbinical.

If there is a mitzvas minuy dayanim in the Diaspora, then why is there a difference between Israel and the Diaspora in the number of judges and their distribution?

Judaism is a religion of love but also a religion of justice, for without justice, love corrupts.

The time immediately preceding Mashiach’s arrival is likened to the birth pangs of a woman in labor.

I hear a beat,
I know the sound
I feel a skip,
One that I’m used to
I see a picture,
But this one is new
I cry of pain,
Because I know this is real.

Taking the words from my mouth,
Twisting them, stretching them, turning them round and round,
Negating their true meaning, as it was meant to be heard,
You hear what you want without really listening.

A poem about living with Asperger’s Syndrome.

Greetings to all, my name is Nachalah, I am a 24-year-old student. I am studying communications and graphic designing at Sapir College… Sapir College in Southern Israel is under fire, situated near Sderot and the surrounding Kibbutzim, where the bravest children in the world live.

It was the mid ‘60s and I was living with my mother and brother in public housing on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. We moved there from Brooklyn a decade earlier to be near my mother’s family when my father died suddenly of a stroke.

You’ve gotta settle, stop being so choosy, it’s a boy’s world after all
And you’re just one of the millions who think their worth something, have the gall.
You’ve got to start looking better, so that you’ll be noticed when you walk through town
And perhaps you can lose a few pounds too, so we can pull your resume dress size down.

Turbulence.
There is
Turbulence
Up here.
In the air.

Dear Cheryl,

Your thoughts in last week’s column were an absolutely perfect reflection of everything going through my mind and the minds of many of my friends for the last few years. Thank you so much. I always enjoy reading your articles, and when I read this one I felt I had to write to you because the topic touches such a nerve with me.
