Hashem Is the Ultimate Shadchan (cont.)

Money cannot create a bond of love or faithfulness between husband and wife.
Rebbetzin Esther Jungreis

Perhaps the couple does not even recognize at first that their problem is money -rooted; they just know that nastiness has come to define their home life. The sad truth is that because the money well dried up, everything else dried up as well.

Certainly money is important – but it cannot be allowed to be the defining factor in a relationship. The bond that connects husband and wife must transcend the changing fortunes inherent in almost every life.

So you need to summon forth the courage to tell shadchanim, and potential spouses, the truth: “I am not wealthy. I will of course help my children as much as I possibly can but I cannot promise anything. So if you are marrying my child for money, you’ve come to the wrong address.”

Please G-d, your daughter’s bashert – the “right one” – will come. He will love your daughter for herself and only for herself. Pray to – and place your trust in – Hashem. It is He who holds the key to all shidduchim – that very special soul mate He Himself designated for each individual. Be patient. It will happen. And when it does, please don’t forget to invite me to the wedding so that I may have the privilege of personally saying Mazel Tov.

Over and over, the text tells us about “keeping” Shabbat, about holiness, and a covenant – but why?

Aharon’s guilt with the golden calf is not clear-cut. What if Moshe were in his brother’s place?

When Hashem told Moshe of the option to destroy the people and make him and his descendants into a great nation, Hashem was telling Moshe that it is up to him.

Just like Moses and Aaron, Mordechai decides to ruin the party…

‘All Agree That They Are Exempt’
(Kesubbos 35a)

Question: If Abraham was commanded to circumcise his descendants on the eighth day, why do Arabs – who claim to descend from Abraham through Yishmael – wait until their children are 13 to circumcise them? I am aware that this is a matter of little consequence to our people. Nevertheless, this inconsistency is one that piques my curiosity.

Why would the exemption of women from donating the half shekel exempt them from davening Musaf?

This concept should be very relevant to us as we, too, should be happy beyond description.

The Holocaust was the latest attempt of Amalek to destroy the special bond that we enjoy with God.

One can drink up to the Talmud’s criterion to confuse Mordechai and Haman-but not beyond.

“The voice is the voice of Yaakov, but the hands are the hands of Esav” gives great insight to Purim

Purim is the battleground of extremes, Amalek and Yisrael, with Zoroastrian Persia in between.

One should not give the money before Purim morning or after sunset.

The mishloach manos of times gone by were sometimes simple and sometimes elaborate, but the main focus was on the preparation of the delicious food they contained.
