What did I do to deserve some of the things that occur in my life?

Father’s Day

28 Sivan 5772 – June 17, 2012
Though my parents were not happy when I told them that I was moving to Israel, I made aliyah anyway.

Kindliness: A Reflection Of Hashem

14 Nisan 5772 – April 5, 2012
After months and months of rebellion, Pharaoh finally admitted he was wrong. The Dos Zakainim explains that the plague of barad moved Pharaoh more than any other. And it was because of one factor: Moshe had warned him that the hail would kill anything living. Again and again, Moshe cautioned Pharaoh to take his livestock and his slaves inside. Because Pharaoh was repeatedly warned to save the living creatures, he was moved and recognized his error.

He explains that the difference lies not in the crime but in the mental state of the thief.
