Photograph: Shturem Archives
One evening after our weekly class in Torah I was walking on the promenade with my friend, Rabbi Butman. I was telling him that my regular barber had sold his business to another barber. However what was peculiar to me was that there now a photograph hanging on the shop wall of the fellow who had been my barber. Rabbi Butman looked at me and said, “Mick, when you see a picture on the wall it usually means that the person has passed away ■ more

We arrived in Sibiu late at night. We had included it in our itinerary because it has a tiny Jewish population, who could undoubtedly use some encouragement. Also, it is one of the tourism capitals of Romania, and we were pretty confident that we would find some Jewish tourists. We checked into a hotel, and headed for bed with a sense of excitement and anticipation ■ more

 Chinuch Hora'ah of the Day: 

Chinuch Hora'ah of the Day: In reference to what you are writing, that you aren't happy that the students are davening b’arichus since it doesn't coincide with their conduct in other areas, and you are worried that they are being “showoffs.” It is possible that you are correct with your claim, however, it's obvious to anyone who looks into the nature of today's youth, that, specifically for them, it is a period of crisis ■ more

The Chassidishe Parsha
 Acharei Havaya Elokeichem Teileichu" 
“Acharei Havaya Elokeichem Teileichu" This Maamar speaks of the verse in this week’s Parsha that discusses the command to walk in the path of G-d who is testing man and putting him to challenge. It delves into the purpose of these challenges and how this relates to the purpose of the descent of the soul below. One of the most profound questions faced by the philosophers and the thinking man is with regards to the purpose of a Nisayon-challenge or test ■ more

 Inspiring Others Enhances Our Own Emunah 

WHEN WE INSPIRE OTHERS – IT ENHANCES OUR OWN EMUNAH  The relationship of our time to Geula is based not only on the fact that "I await his coming every day" and especially after "all the deadlines have passed" and all the efforts have been completed (as was discussed numerous times), but also on the fact that we are now in a special year whose initials represent: "It will be a year of wonders I shall show him," - "as in the days of your departure from Egypt, I will show him wonders ■ more

Rabbi Raphael Tennenhaus
 A Small Bite of Shabbos Delight 
The month of Elul is a month of preparation for the New Year. The Alter Rebbe describes this month as the month in which " the King is in the field", a reference to how Hashem, the King of kings, comes to us, on our terms, in our domain, in this merciful month, smiling at us, and putting us at ease as we return to Him with joy. Ordinarily, the King is in the palace. There's much bureaucracy to get in to see the King, let alone to speak to the King ■ more
