Short Thought


 The rich shall not give more, and the poor shall not give less (30:15)

People differ in their intellect, character and talents, in the quantity of their material resources and the timbre of their spiritual sensitivities. But all are equal in the very basis of their bond with G-d: the intrinsic commitment to Him that resides at the core of their souls. So while every man contributed to the making of the various components of the Sanctuary in accordance with their individual capacity, all gave equally of the silver of which its foundation was made. As regards the foundation of the relationship between man and G-d, the “rich man” cannot give more, and the “pauper” cannot give less.

(The Lubavitcher Rebbe)





David and Cheryl Rabinowitz were at their first pre-natal class. So that the David could get an idea of what it felt like to be pregnant, the instructor strapped a bag of sand to his stomach.

As he walked around with his new bulge, David said: “This doesn’t feel too bad.”

Then the instructor deliberately dropped a pen and said to David: “Now I want you to pick up that pen as if you were pregnant.”

“You want me to do it the way my wife would?” confirmed the David.

“Exactly the same,” said the instructor.

David turned to his wife Cheryl and said: “Honey, pick up that pen for me.”


Moshiach and the future Redemption

Yearning for the Redemption is of such importance that according to the Talmud (Shabbat 31a), one of the very first questions a soul is asked when facing the Heavenly Court is: “Did you yearn for the Salvation?”
