Short thought


You shall take of the first of all the fruit of the land…
(Deuteronomy 26:2)

Everything that is for the sake of G-d should be of the best and most beautiful. When one builds a house of prayer, it should be more beautiful than his own dwelling. When one feeds the hungry, he should feed him of the best and sweetest of his table. When one clothes the naked, he should clothe him with the finest of his clothes. Whenever one designates something for a holy purpose, he should sanctify the finest of his possessions; as it is written (Leviticus 3:16),
“The choicest to G-d.”


The rule, “the choicest to G-d,” applies in all areas of life. If the school day must include both sacred and secular studies, the former should be scheduled for the morning hours when the mind is at its freshest and most receptive. If one’s talents are to be divided between two occupations, one whose primary function is to pay the bills and a second which benefits his fellow man, he should devote his keenest abilities to the latter.

In devoting the “first-ripened fruits” of his life to G-d, a person, in effect, is saying: “Here lies the focus of my existence. Quantitatively, this may represent but a small part of what I am and have; but the purpose of everything else I do and possess is to enable this percentile of spirit to rise above my matter-clogged life.”

(The Lubavitcher Rebbe)







“Hi. This is Sarah Palin. Is Senator Lieberman in?”
“No, governor. This is Yom Kippur.”
“Well, hello, Yom. Can I leave a message?”



Moshiach and the Future Redemption    


The Messianic Era is the consummation of our relationship with G-d, and to earn this privilege we have to prove that the relationship is real to us, part and parcel of who we are, so much so that we steadfastly maintain this relationship even in the absence of any revealed reciprocation from G-d. Even when remaining loyal to him costs us dearly.

The Rhinebeck Jewish Center is a project of Chabad Dutchess.
