Korach: The Danger Of Quarreling

2 Tammuz 5772 – June 21, 2012
Aharon HaKohen is distinguished for his love of peace. Korach earned distinction for failing in this area; his name has become synonymous with dispute and divisiveness. Rabbi Avigdor Miller, zt”l, found in this story a striking lesson about the danger of argumentativeness and its application to every Jew.

How To Make Good Memories: Remembering The Critical Parts Of Our...

15 Sivan 5772 – June 4, 2012
Have you noticed that we seem to have preferential memory for the unpleasant things that happen to us? Try as we might to provide our children with good experiences and positive memories, it is the memories that evoke fear, pain, sadness, etc. seem to be the ones that stand out.

The Revelation On Mount Sinai – A Strengthening In Faith Forever

4 Sivan 5772 – May 24, 2012
There is a tradition from the Vilna Gaon that Milchemes Gog and Magog at the time of Moshiach will last only 12 minutes. In that short amount of time 1/3 of the world will be destroyed, 1/3 severely wounded and 1/3 will survive. Until recently this was incomprehensible - how could such destruction happen so quickly?

Bamidbar: A Unique Awareness Of Hashem

3 Sivan 5772 – May 23, 2012
The Generation of the Wilderness was unique in the history of Israel, as Rabbi Avigdor Miller, zt”l, explains concerning the first verse of Bamidbar. Israel was slated for a special mission in the world, and this mission was begun with a special forty-year inauguration in which Israel gained an intense and unmatched closeness to Hashem.

Spared Possible Punishment ‘Those Who Are New To The Ketores’ (Tamid 32b-33a)

Understand The Ways Of Hashem

The truth is sometimes unpopular or uncomfortable. Thus, people who wish to dismiss the Hand of Hashem from history and human affairs may be taken aback by the assertion of Rabbi Avigdor Miller, zt”l, based on the beginning of this parshah, that the suffering that befalls Israel comes for a Divine purpose. Rabbi Miller finds this purpose explicit in the opening words of Bechukosai, and observes that this “wish” (to dismiss the Hand of Hashem from history) is not a Jewish way of thinking.

Holy Mission Carried Out in Hermon Closed Military Zone

The Art of Ignoring – So Safe, So Repulsive, So Dangerous

5 Nisan 5772 – March 28, 2012
As one that has trained and followed rabbis throughout their careers, I can generally say that rabbis gain detractors not so much because of their sermons, vision, lectures or the like, but rather when they fail to return phone calls, when they avoid bikur cholim, and when they fail to respond to emails. One can deal with refusal, disagreements, debates and the answer 'no', but how should one deal with being totally and utterly ignored?!

Yisro: Of Magistrates And Kings

18 Shevat 5772 – February 10, 2012
We should not be so naive to think Moshe himself could not have thought of the plan of appointing officers. The Elders of the sons of Israel in Egypt were an official and recognized body, not mere old men as are found today in homes for the aged.

Think Amalek

11 Adar II 5771 – March 16, 2011

Tu B’Shevat, Human Beings, And Trees

7 Shevat 5771 – January 12, 2011
The source for Tu B'Shevat is the opening Mishnah of the Talmudic tractate Rosh Hashanah: "The Academy of Hillel taught that the 15th of Shevat is the New Year for the trees." What does that mean, "New Year for the trees"?

Gridiron Greatness

23 Elul 5770 – September 1, 2010
Summer's warmth gives way to autumn's chill. A new year beckons, not just for Klal Yisrael but also for the game that has become our country's favorite sport - no, our national obsession: football.

Eliezer Reiner – The Mitzvah Of Memory

9 Nisan 5764 – March 31, 2004
Remember. The commandment to remember reverberates throughout the Torah, starting with the Exodus from Egypt, continuing to Receiving the Torah and finally climaxing in the weekly remembrance of the Sabbath itself. Embedded in the six remembrances is the commandment to, "remember what Amalek did to you on the way" (Devarim 25:17).
