  1. The following was in the daily halacha email from

    A European Gadol taken from us.

    We didn’t get the message.

    An American Gadol taken from us.

    We didn’t get the message.

    A Gadol from Eretz Yisroel taken from us.

    We didn’t get the message.

    A little boy from Brooklyn, NY brutally sacrificed for us.

    We didn’t get the message.

    A Sephardic Mekubal from Be’er Sheva savagely sacrificed for us.

    Will we once again not get the message?

    We shuddered.

    We cried.

    We gave Tzedakah.

    We sighed.

    We prayed.

    We learned Torah.

    But did we get the message?

    Did we change?

    Are we changing?

    We heard speeches.

    We heard tributes.

    We heard songs.

    But did we get the message?

    Did we change?

    Hashem is talking to us.

    Are we listening?

    Are we so brazenly insensitive?

    Are we so deeply incapable of change?

    Are we that numb?

    The world is full of Achzariyus

    The world is stooping to unprecedented lows.

    The world is in a fast paced transition.

    We dare not be insensitive.

    We dare not chalk it up to coincidence.

    We dare not block ourselves from feeling.

    We must open our eyes and listen.

    We must become bigger than our minute selves.

    We must be ready to change…

    ready to get the message…

    ready to part of the transition…

    Every Jew must be a part of this movement.

    If not for him/herself, for the sake of their brothers and sisters, Am Yisroel.

    It’s time to really focus on Ahavas Yisroel

    For the sake of Klal Yisroel

    So we can merit Mashiach shel Yisroel

    And the return of the Shechinah to Eretz Yisroel

    Hazorim B’Dima, B’Rena Yiktzoru.

    We wept oceans of tears

    The time has come to reap with joy


    Only together.

    Ahavas Yisroel; SPREAD THE LOVE!

    (Btw, it’s niftara not nifteres. A woman is called a nifteres after she’s niftara. Let’s not start having a dikduk argument now, please.)

  3. Why dont you want a dikduk correction?? You tried to make a correction and you also are wrong so why should you be corrected as well.

    Niftera means dies in PAST tense. So when saying a sentence in hebrew that a women died you would say so and so niftera. However when you are saying a STATEMENT that someone died you dont say she was niftera or nifteres , rather she was nifter

  4. Unbelievable. First comment is all about coming together and changing and “getting the message”. Next two comments are critical and pointing out fault. I guess “the message” still has not be heard. What a shame.
