Where’s Moshiach?

The twelfth of our Thirteen Principles of Emuna requires us all to eagerly anticipate Moshiach. I don't think that there's anyone, religious or not, who doesn't want Moshiach, so where is he? Why doesn't he come already? A lot of people are talking about Coronavirus as a catalyst for Moshiach, but is there any truth in that? Let's find out...

Coronavirus: Effort or Emuna?

People are confused, especially when some rabbis leaders have padlocked their synagogues while for others, it's business as usual. Many are asking me if listening to one's local medical authorities and refraining from praying in a synagogue or immersing in a men's mikva constitutes a lack of emuna. Today's podcast provides a detailed answer...

The Reward of Life

These days, during the challenge of the Coronavirus pandemic, any person with the slightest bit of emuna thanks Hashem profusely for every new day of life, even every moment of life.

By sharing the burden of life's difficulties, we create national unity. By creating national unity, we bring Moshiach and the full redemption of our people. Many people are asking how they can fulfill the mitzva of saying Kaddish for a deceased parent or loved one, when synagogues have been closed down because of the Coronavirus. Here's good news - Rabbi Lazer Brody, who is saying Kaddish anyway for his mother ob"m, will say Kaddish for you and it will count just as if you said it yourself. What's more, it won't cost you a cent. See today's podcast...

Fruit of the Soul

In this special lesson for the month of Shvat, we learn about the four types of fruit that our sages speak about. They are:

1) Fruit of the field and tree - vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds

2) Fruit of the womb - our children

3) Fruit of our labors - the result of our career, trade, professional and job efforts

4) Fruit of the soul - one's emuna, prayer and Torah.

All the above four types have one very significant common denominator...

Bullseye

A person can score a bullseye in one of two ways. Either he or she can invest years of effort and training to become a champion archer, or he or she can be a slouch, grab a bow, shoot an arrow in the general direction of the target, and then draw the bullseye around wherever his or her arrow lands...
