Blessing Children Before Yom Kippur

Some people bless their children every night, some have the custom to bless on Fri. night, and some don’t have the custom to bless their children at all. However, everyone blesses their children before Yom Kippur. There is a custom to bless our children before Yom Kippur since the children will also be more receptive due to the awe of the day.

Thank you to Afikim Foundation for this beautiful print of the blessing with English translation and transliteration.

New Years Resolution? Stop being a bystander in Jewish life!

Don't be a bystander“If you’re happy with your level of Jewish practice, then you’re not an ‘Orthodox’ Jew!” proclaimed one of my revered teachers more than a decade ago. Torah demands that we constantly strive to perfect ourselves. How do you transform yourself from being a bystander to being a vibrant participant in Torah? The answer is simple. Stop reading about Torah in the blogosphere and start learning the Torah itslef. Everyone is clicking and blogging and posting about the most recent strain of the most recent movement. Some try to feed you delicious fish because you don’t take the time to learn how to fish for yourselves. Too many times, we lecture about Torah and about Torah learning but fail to engage directly with the Torah itself. The time is now. Learn Torah directly.

Is our Night Yeshiva is too much for your schedule? No problem. Contact your learning partner and set up a time. If you don’t have someone to contact, I’ll find you one.

To drive this point home, check out a video from a former Gemara rabbi of mine….he’s amazing and he is like this all the time by the way:)

What does Sukkot have to do with Messianic times and War?

The Prophet Zecharia explains that the survivors of the “War of Gog and Magog” will come to the King, Hashem…and celebrate Sukkot.” But what is the connection between this great war and Sukkot? The answer can be found in the name of Gog himself.

According to the prophecy, Gog who is from a land called Magog is to wage war against Israel during a time that Israel is in the Land and prospering. Gog’s name says it all. Gog is spelled the same as Gag which means roof. The roof shields those underneath it from the influences of the heavens (e.g. rain, snow, etc.). Gog attempts to prevent people from recognizing the source of all Blessing, the Almighty. The roof of the Sukah does not block the heavenly influences and thus become the subject of Gog’s war. Interestingly enough, the numerical equivalent of Gog UMagog is 70 correlating to the seventy nations.

VID: Mother of a murdered Israeli teen

An important message from the Mother of a murdered Israeli teen, Rachelle Fraenkel. In a powerful message of unity she points out that, “We went out searching for the boys and we discovered ourselves.” May we continue to stay strong together in 5775 and may it be a year filled with growth and betterment for the individual and the Jewish people as a whole.
