 Chinuch Hora'ah of the Day 

Chinuch Hora'ah of the Day: The woman is the akeres habayis. She is the one responsible for the home to be illuminated with an internal Jewish light and warmth, so that the Jewish home is protected from winds foreign to Yiddishkeit that blow in the outside world and endanger the Yiddishkeit. This is why the Jewish woman has been endowed with a greater measure of emotion and warmth ■ more

Got Bitachon?
 Why Wait in Galus for Great Wealth? 
The 'rechush gadol' - the substantial wealth that was promised to the Yidden when they would be redeemed from Mitzrayim, requires explanation. Taking into account the bitter exile they were enduring, one might recommend that it would be better let the Yidden leave earlier with no wealth, than to wait out the entire exile and then leave with great wealth ■ more

Shliach Rabbi Zushe Silberstein writes: Two days before Pessach Mr. S E living on the African continent, contacted me via whatsApp asking if on Pessach one puts on Tefilin?

Moshe was the first Redeemer of the Jewish people. Moshiach is the final Redeemer of the Jewish people. Every day, we must balance our lives, with both Moshe and Moshiach ■ more
 Pharaoh Opposes Bitachon 

We derive powerful bitachon lessons from some of the decrees that King Pharaoh decreed on the Yidden in Mitzrayim. One of the worst of these was the decree on the children, that the boys be drowned in the Nile River. The Torah's narration of this decree seems peculiar. First the Torah relates that Pharaoh wanted all the boys thrown into the river, and then the Torah continues and tells us that Pharaoh said that all the girls should live ■ more
