My dear reader, as we journey through life we are given opportunities that, with the help of Hashem, can be transformed into magnificent achievements. Yet, inevitably, Hashem tests us to determine how sincere our desire is in the achievement of our goal – the greater the accomplishment, the greater the obstacles that are strewn in our path. Our attitude should be one of strength and resolve as we focus on the ultimate benefit of the project, while anticipating that we will encounter difficulties along the way. This will help galvanize us to persevere. Let us pray to Hashem that if our goal is meant to be, that we may merit to be His messengers, and that our efforts will be crowned with success.

“Rebbi.” One of the most beautiful words in the Hebrew language is “rebbi” – “my Torah teacher.” It is a title earned through Torah knowledge the teacher must possess and then transmit, through love, to his students. The word is said with respect and affection of the highest nature. It bonds rebbi and student together like no other word.
