Shabbos: A Day With Hashem: Three Zones

Posted on: February 7th, 2014

JudaismParsha

Friday night corresponds to Shabbos Bereishis – therefore we discuss the creation. Shabbos morning corresponds to the Shabbos when we received the Torah, so in Shachris we mention that. And finally, Shabbos afternoon corresponds to the Shabbos of the World to Come, so in Mincha we talk about the Oneness of Hashem, which will be clearly revealed at that time.

Present, Yet Anonymous

Posted on: February 7th, 2014

JudaismParsha

One of the most striking features of this week’s parsha is the absence of Moshe Rabbeinu's name, an omission which occurs only once from the beginning of Sefer Shemos until Moshe’s death at the end of Sefer Devraim.

Q & A: Sabbath Shuttle? (Part VI)

Posted on: February 6th, 2014

JudaismAsk the Rabbi

Question: Is it permitted on the Sabbath or holidays to take a shuttle to synagogue? The neighborhood shuttle runs from 9-5 daily, is driven by a gentile, has a designated stop schedule, and is free of charge.

A Diamond With A Flaw

Posted on: February 6th, 2014

JudaismParsha

One of the signs a diamond is real is that it has a flaw. While it may be a very minor imperfection and almost unnoticeable, all genuine diamonds have flaws.

Handing It Over

"I've got to run," Yossi said to his friends. He turned to Nachman, who lived a few doors away from him. "Someone asked me to watch his backpack, with a laptop inside," he said. "Can you please take it home? I'll pick it up in the evening."

Can A Non-Kohen Light The Menorah?

Posted on: February 6th, 2014

JudaismParsha

When the Rambam wished to give an example of how a non-kohen could light the menorah, why did he have to say that a kohen took the menorah outside of the Kodesh?

The Whole Is Greater Than The Sum Of The Parts

Posted on: February 6th, 2014

JudaismParsha

The Gemara mentions that the grape clusters refer to Moshe and Aharon, the paradigm of what a Jew can be. However, while it is important to treat the scholars like Moshe and Aharon with proper respect, one must not diminish the dignity of other jews who are not at that level. Without these Jews, the scholar could not reach his level.

G-d Expects More From Us

Posted on: February 6th, 2014

JudaismHalacha & Hashkafa

Question: The Talmud (Berachot 33b) notes that it is improper to implore G-d: “Just as You have shown mercy upon a bird’s nest [with the mitzvah of shiluach ha’kan], so, too, may you have mercy and compassion on us.” Why is this prayer improper?

Divine Protection (Daf Yomi Sukkah)

Posted on: February 6th, 2014

JudaismHalacha & Hashkafa

When we are on the move in life, exiled from place to place, we turn to God, our Partner, for the protection of His cloud. When we are given the luxury of settling down, God turns to us, His partner, for the protection of our walls.

Parshas Terumah: The Value Of Effort

Posted on: January 31st, 2014

JudaismParsha

Winston Churchill repeated a grade during elementary school. He twice failed the exam to the Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst. He later wrote, “Never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never – in nothing, great or small, large or petty – never give in except to the convictions of honor and good sense. Never, Never, Never, Never give up!”

Hashem’s House As An Address For Prayer

Posted on: January 30th, 2014

JudaismParsha

The notion of a Temple, as either a temporary dwelling or as a permanent building at a specific site, is inherently difficult to understand. How can Hashem, the paradigm of perfect sanctity, coexist with our mundane, flawed universe? Infinity with the finite?

Nachum was doing a research project on the Rambam for one of his courses. He borrowed a number of sefarim from his yeshiva's library for a month while writing the paper. When he completed the assignment, he gathered the sefarim together to return them to the library, but noticed that one sefer was missing.
