Daily Emunah Podcast - Daily Emunah By Rabbi David Ashear

It is in the best interest of a person to utilize the gift of tefila as much as possible. There are many yeshuot and berachot that Hashem wants to give us, and the way for us to access them is through tefila . The Ramban writes, the reason that Hashem did not heal the speech impediment of Moshe Rabbenu is because Moshe never asked for it. We don't want to deprive ourselves of potential blessings that were potentially within our reach. Prayer can even give us what is conceivably beyond our reach as well. The Gemara says in Masechet Nida daf 70b, if a person wants to become wise, he needs to spend time learning Torah and also ask Hashem for wisdom, and both are equally necessary. The Maharsha there explains the Gemara to be speaking about a person who is naturally unintelligent as Hashem decreed how much brain power that person would be given. Which means, even a person who is physically unable to comprehend certain concepts, with prayer and a lot of effort in learning, Hashem will change the person's capacities and enable him to understand things that he previously was unable to understand. As well, Rashi in Masechet Avodah Zara daf 8 writes, if a person forgets his learning, he should elongate his prayers during the beracha of chonen hadaat in the Amida . That is a medication that can heal deficiencies that no doctor has the ability to heal. Of course, along with prayer a person needs to make hishtadlut and review his learning, but for us to know that prayer is a wondrous segula for wisdom and memory is a very valuable piece of information. The better our kavana is, the better the prayer will be. The Taz writes, the main kavana in tefila is to remove all thoughts of distraction and to imagine oneself standing right in front of the Shechina. Before we start the Amida , it's so important to keep that in mind and, as we know, tefila is not bound by the three prayers a day, we can make use of it any time we want. Rabbi Zilberstein told a story of a taxi driver in Israel who earned enough money just to put food on the table for his family and pay his basic expenses. He had to pay rent for the taxi he used and if he didn't get enough jobs on any given day, he would come home that night with less money than he started with. One day, he had so few jobs he was embarrassed to come home and face his wife. He pulled over to the side of the road in the late afternoon and began talking to Hashem. He lifted up his hands in prayer and begged Hashem to provide sustenance for his large family. He poured out his heart and before he even had a chance to finish his tefila , there was already a knock on his window. Initially, he thought he was being told to move his vehicle from an illegal parking spot, but then he saw it was a potential customer. The man asked how much it would be to go from where they were in Teveria to Ashdod and then back. The driver said he hadn't had a job like that in a very long time. He told the man it would cost 1500 shekel. The man then asked how much it would be for the waiting time there. The driver said, “Well, it goes by half hour increments.” The man said, “What if I give you a total of 2000 shekel, no matter how long I make you wait. Would that be okay?” The driver thought in his mind he'd wait all night for that price and he said, “sure, no problem.” In the end, the man only made him wait for an hour. It was an hour and 45 minutes each way and 4 and a half hours later, this man came home with 2000 shekel, thanking Hashem for immediately answering his tefila . Tefila is always beneficial. The benefits are not always immediate and they are not always readily obvious, but for sure every prayer will benefit us.

Abraham bequeathed the knowledge of Hashem to the world, brought faith to humanity, and rekindled hope for mankind. What fueled this great man's desire for truth, and what gave him the courage to stand alone against the whole world?

Seldom does Rabbi Steve Berkson do a “timing teaching”, but it seems the Ruach put this one in front of him (at the behest of Rabbi Tom) to bring to you today. This teaching series is based on a tradition called “Shabbat Shuva” or the “Shabbat of Return” which by tradition falls between Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur (Day of Trumpets and Day of Atonement). The text for this tradition is Hoshea (Hosea) chapter 14 and begins with, “O Yisra'el, return to Yahweh your Elohim…”So, after having gone through the Spring Feasts – Passover, Unleavened Bread, and Shavuot, which are types and shadows of the Hebrew's exodus from Egypt and journey to Mt. Sinai, have you maintained a faithful, straight walk in Torah? Or, have you gotten “off the path” a little or a lot? Do you sense a call to return to the path, to Yahweh?• What is meant by “crookedness”? What does crookedness cause you to do?• Regarding the call to return – return to what?From there, Rabbi Berkson takes us into Leviticus chapter 26 to look at the reasons to return to the Covenant. In Leviticus chapter 26 the blessings and the curses associated with Yahweh's Covenant with His people are listed.• How is it that you will be able to walk in Covenant with the Creator?From Leviticus, we go to Deuteronomy 4:25 where we can see that Yahweh has an issue with His people and their idol worship. How can we today relate to them in that time regarding ‘idol worship'?Rabbi Berkson then takes us to Deuteronomy chapter 30 to show us one of the final exhortations of Moses to the people as they are about to cross over into the Promised Land. Interestingly, Yahweh through Moses told the people that in their future they would stray from the path they were supposed to walk and be taken from the Land by their enemies, but as they were living in a foreign land, their hearts would turn back to Yahweh and they would return once again to possess and live in their Promised Land.• In this chapter we see the phrase, “circumcise your heart” – what does that mean? Isn't that just a "New Testament" concept? What is it doing left of Matthew?And then we are taken to Romans chapter 10 where Rabbi Berkson points out that the apostle Paul is clearly writing about Torah observance, and indeed substitutes the word ‘Messiah' for the word ‘Torah' as he quotes Moses in the section from Deuteronomy chapter 30.• What does Romans 10:4 really mean?• What is “the righteousness of belief”?• What is “the good news of the good”? • Was there “Good News” before the New Testament?Verse-by-verse and step-by-step Rabbi Steve Berkson takes us on the journey of discovery and learning how to covenant with our Creator and Father which from time to time requires us to turn around and return to His Word so that we can have a sure entrance into His Kingdom.Don't miss out on new teachings every week.

Study Guide Rosh Hashanah 4 Today's daf is sponsored by Sami Groff "in memory of my father, Rabbi Abner Groff. It is fitting that we are starting to learn Masechet Rosh Hashana at the time of your yahrzeit – the High Holiday tefillot were the highlight of your year as a Chazan- after weeks of preparation, your incredibly beautiful tefillot inspired all who had the privilege to hear them. We miss you always." And by Rachel Alexander Levy in honor of the birthday of Miriam Sophie Levy. "Happy 8th Birthday to my daughter! You inspire me to learn the daf every day." The Gemara resolved the contradiction Rav Yosef raised in the two sets of verses about Darius (one seemed to have the count start from Nissan and the other from Tishrei) by saying that one took place when Darius was good to the Jews and the other once he became bad. Rav Kahana asks if it is true if Darius became a bad king. Four answers are brought to show that he did become bad. Questions are raised on these answers and some are resolved. Referring back to the Mishna where it said that the first of Nissan is the first for the holiday, what is the relevance of this? One who takes a vow cannot delay in bringing it. What is considered a delay? Rabbi Shimon held that after three holidays pass in their order - and the order begins with Nissan, Pesach. His opinion is one of five opinions regarding this halakha and all are brought in a braita. From where in the Torah is each opinion derived and what does each one do with the verses that the others use for their proof?

"Renowned scholar Alan F. Segal offers startlingly new insights into the origins of rabbinic Judaism and Christianity. These twin descendants of Hebrew heritage shared the same social, cultural, and ideological context, as well as the same minority status, in the first century of the common era. Through skillful application of social science theories to ancient Western thought, including Judaism, Hellenism, early Christianity, and a host of other sectarian beliefs, Segal reinterprets some of the most important events of Jewish and Christian life in the Roman world. For example, he finds: That the concept of myth, as it related to covenant, was a central force of Jewish life. The Torah was the embodiment of covenant both for Jews living in exile and for the Jewish community in Israel. That the Torah legitimated all native institutions at the time of Jesus, even though the Temple, Sanhedrin, and Synagogue, as well as the concepts of messiah and resurrection, were profoundly affected by Hellenism. Both rabbinic Judaism and Christianity necessarily relied on the Torah to authenticate their claim on Jewish life. That the unique cohesion of early Christianity, assuring its phenomenal success in the Hellenistic world, was assisted by the Jewish practices of apocalypticism, conversion, and rejection of civic ritual. That the concept of acculturation clarifies the Maccabean revolt, the rise of Christianity, and the emergence of rabbinic Judaism. That contemporary models of revolution point to the place of Jesus as a radical. That early rabbinism grew out of the attempts of middle-class Pharisees to reach a higher sacred status in Judea while at the same time maintaining their cohesion through ritual purity. That the dispute between Judaism and Christianity reflects a class conflict over the meaning of covenant. The rising turmoil between Jews and Christians affected the development of both rabbinic Judaism and Christianity, as each tried to preserve the partly destroyed culture of Judea by becoming a religion. Both attempted to take the best of Judean and Hellenistic society without giving up the essential aspects of Israelite life. Both spiritualized old national symbols of the covenant and practices that consolidated power after the disastrous wars with Rome. The separation between Judaism and Christianity, sealed in magic, monotheism, law, and universalism, fractured what remained of the shared symbolic life of Judea, leaving Judaism and Christianity to fulfill the biblical demands of their god in entirely different ways."

Daily Emunah Podcast - Daily Emunah By Rabbi David Ashear

Chazal tell us, expounding upon the words in the Torah "ורפא ירפא", that from there we learn a doctor was given permission by Hashem to heal. Baruch Hashem, we have many doctors who do their jobs faithfully and save numerous lives, but we must always remember, refuah comes from Hashem and the doctor is just His messenger. Therefore, part of a person's basic hishtadlut in going to doctors is praying to Hashem that the healing will come about. We say in the Ana Bekoach” יודע תעלומותA שועתנו קבל ושמע צעקתינו “– which means, accept our pleas, hear our cries, the One who knows the hidden. The Arizal wrote on those words that the rosheh tevot are the same numerical value as the word רשות – permission. Which means, we must know even though the doctor was given permission to heal, we need to beseech Hashem who knows things that the doctors don't - the יודע תעלומות . Doctors do the best with the information that they are given, but they don't know everything and, therefore, when Rabbi Eliezer Sheik once received a letter from a distraught woman telling him that the doctors have given up hope on her ever having a child, he replied, “The doctors were only given permission to heal, they were not given permission to give up hope. Keep praying and keep improving yourself.” I recently received a letter from a woman whose daughter went through a similar experience. She wrote that her daughter, who we'll call Sarah, got married 7 years ago and in her first year of marriage, baruch Hashem, she gave birth to a healthy baby boy. With everything going so smoothly, she anticipated, with Hashem's help, to have another baby soon thereafter, but that's not what happened. After a year, she went to the doctor to see if something was wrong. They tried different fertility pills but nothing was helping. She went through various procedures and tests, but nothing was coming out conclusive. At this point, four difficult years had gone by with more questions than answers. The doctors wanted to perform an invasive exploratory test which Sarah agreed to do but opted to wait until after she came back from a trip to Israel. There, she received berachot from Gedolim and visited kivrei tzaddikim , praying for yeshua at all of them. One Rebbetzin there told her, “Your emunah in Hashem is going to determine if you have a child, not any doctor's prediction. Pray to Him and trust in Him and, b'ezrat Hashem, you'll be blessed with a baby.” That message really uplifted Sarah and she came home on a high with a new spirit of emunah. She took the test and when the results came back, the doctors told her, “What we thought was the problem was actually not but we did find a much bigger problem we did not anticipate.” Sarah said, “It can't be that I am so infertile. I have a child.” The doctor replied, “Lightning can strike, but what are the odds that it will strike twice?” She was told that day that the chances of her ever becoming pregnant again were less than 1%. A couple of weeks later, this woman who was writing the letter got a phone call from her daughter Sarah one morning saying she had a horrible sinus headache and just wasn't functioning properly. She told her to take an Advil Cold & Sinus. Sarah replied, “But Mom, I can't. What if I find out I'm pregnant? Advil wouldn't be safe.” Her mother interrupted her saying, “The odds are against it, so just take the Advil.” Sarah said, “Don't you remember what the Rebbetzin told us? Hashem is the only One in charge and He could do anything.” The woman hung up from her daughter and called her husband saying, “We have a problem, our daughter is in denial.” Her husband told her, “No, she's not in denial. She has pure emunah, and Hashem's going to reward her emunah.” Well, two weeks later, on a Motzei Shabbat, Sarah called her mother saying she just found out she's pregnant. And nine months later, she had a beautiful baby boy. But the miracle didn't end there. When this little boy was just 5 months old, Sarah found out she was expecting again. Baruch Hashem, she has just given birth to her third boy. Her mother concluded the letter by writing, “How did this happen? What about what the doctors saw? We have no idea and, frankly, it doesn't matter. My daughter believed that Hashem could do anything and, as my husband said, Hashem rewarded her trust.”

Study Guide Rosh Hashanah 3 Today's daf is sponsored by Glenda Sacks Jaffe in honor of Rhona, Sharna & Diana "and my amazing San Diego Chavruta" and by Shmulik and Ronit Shavit in honor of the birth of their grandson, son of Lior and Yosi Weiss. How do we know that Aharon died before Moshe began his speech, thereby proving that the counting from the Exodus began from the first of Nissan and not from the first of Tishrei? Because Moshe spoke after the killing of Sichon and the verse tells us that the Canaanite King of Arad came to attack upon hearing of Aharon’s death which had brought about the removal of the cloud of glory that had protected the Jews in the desert. What is the connection between the Caananite and Sichon? How do we know that it wasn’t from Iyar, Sivan, Tamuz, Av or Adar, all of which could have been the month the counting began and still the verses with Aharon and Moshe would have worked. Different verses, some from the Torah and one from Chronicles are brought to prove it. Rav Chisda says that the Rosh Hashana for kings that is on the first of Nissan is only for Jewish kings, but kings of other nations are counted from the first of Tishrei. He derives it from Nechemia 1:1 and Nechemia 2:1. Rav Yosef questions Rav Chisda based on verses from Chagai 1:15 and Chagai 2:1 regarding Darius’s (Daryavesh) reign. Rabbi Abahu answers by saying that Cyrus (Coresh) was a good king to the Jews as he allowed them to rebuild the Temple and therefore his years were counted like Jewish kings. Rav Yosef asks two questions – one, other verses about Darius in Ezra 6:15 and Ezra 7:8 seem to follow the calendar for kings of other nations and secondly, Rav Yosef was talking about Darius and Rabbi Abahu talked about Cyrus! The Gemara answers the second question by bringing a braita in which it states that they were the same person. The answer to the first question is that Darius was good to the Jews but then turned against them. Once things changed, his reign was counted like the kings of the nations of the world.

Rabbi Jacobson will discuss the following topics: Chassidus applied to Cheshvan What can I do when I feel down and unmotivated? At what point is it customary to stop wishing people a happy new year? Why is it called Marcheshvan? What is the significance and lesson of Zayin Cheshvan? Thinking about the First Temple being completed this month, I am wondering what is more important – the physical Temple or the temple of our homes? Noach follow-up Why did G-d have to command Noach to leave the ark? Were there kangaroos on Noach's ark? Was the entire earth flooded? Lessons from Lech Lecha Was Abraham truly a great man by historical standards? How is Abraham considered to be the first Jew if his mother was not Jewish? What is the significance of Hashem telling Abraham that in order to be successful and become a great nation he first must leave his father's home and place of birth? If we feel uninspired, should we learn from Abraham and leave the place we are living? Shouldn't we discover Hashem on our own as Abraham did, instead of learning it from our parents and educators? Why was so Sarah so special? Didn't she behave cruelly by insisting that Hagar and Yishmael be sent away? Why did Abraham hide Sarah in a box and what possible message does this have for us? What can we learn from their descent to Egypt? If Abraham kept the entire Torah why did he not circumcise himself until G-d commanded him to do so at age 99? Shemitah: Why does a sabbatical year cancel debts? Chassidus question: What is the divine chariot and what is its significance in our daily lives?

Daily Emunah Podcast - Daily Emunah By Rabbi David Ashear

The Gemara tells us in Masechet Betza that Shamai HaZaken used to think about his Shabbat food already from Sunday. If he found a nice animal, he would designate it for Shabbat. Then on Monday, if he found a better animal, he would designate that one for Shabbat and use the first one for Monday. This way, all week long, it was considered that he was preparing for Shabbat. Hillel, on the other hand, would take what he found on Sunday and use it for Sunday, what he found on Monday, and use it for Monday and, he knew, when Friday came around Hashem would send him the choicest animal for Shabbat. The mefarshim explain, Hillel was not being lenient in the mitzvah of preparing for Shabbat. Rather, he was practicing his mida of bitachon . He was so confident in his relationship with Hashem that he knew Hashem would give him what he needed when he needed it. The Mishna Berura in siman 250 writes, we are encouraged to follow the practice of Shamai and prepare in advance because, most probably, we do not have the same bitachon as Hillel did. Yes, there is a mitzvah to have bitachon and there are numerous applications of it that we are encouraged to practice on a daily basis, but this type of bitachon requires a high level. As well, it goes without saying, if there are times when preparing in advance is not a possibility then, of course, a person should work on strengthening his bitachon and feel that Hashem can help him exactly at his time of need. Sometimes Hashem shows us how He was planning and preparing for what we were going to need, way before we even thought about it ourselves. Rabbi David Amon, the Rosh Yeshiva of Noam HaTorah in Israel told me that he needed to find a Sefer Torah to borrow for his yeshiva for the month of September to use for all the holidays. It was always difficult for him to find one and he was hoping that one day someone would just donate a Torah to his yeshiva that they could have permanently. About a week before Rosh Hashanah, the Rabbi was mentioning to an older man who frequents the yeshiva that he really needed a Torah and wished that someone would donate one. This man he was speaking to was not a man of means and the Rabbi knew he was not capable of donating one, but for some reason he felt compelled to ask him about it. The man replied he might be able to help. He then made a phone call and five minutes later said he has a wealthy brother who just completed a Sefer Torah in memory of their father, and he would be happy to donate it to this yeshiva. The Rabbi couldn't believe his ears. Just a few days later, a massive Sefer Torah Dedication took place in a large hall, it was like a wedding. The donor got up to speak there. He said he started this project a couple of years ago, but then when Corona hit and all the shuls shut down, he told the sofer to stop. Then when the shuls began opening again, he told the sofer to continue. The sofer recently contacted him saying that the Torah was completed. The man planned on donating it to the shul on the moshav in which he lived. However, the shul just informed them that due to the resurgence of Corona, they were stopping all minyanim indefinitely. The man was so distraught over the news. He was finally ready to dedicate this Torah after two long years and now, no shul again. Just two days later, he received a phone call from his brother about a yeshiva in need of a Torah. He said he had never been to a yeshiva before, but hearing of their need and wanting to dedicate his Torah, he happily agreed to give it to them. As he watched the yeshiva boys dancing with the Torah that night with such exuberance and jubilation, he had tears in his eyes. He was so thankful that he was led to giving his Torah to this institution. And just like that, a few days before Rosh Hashanah this year, the Rabbi had a brand new Sefer Torah in his yeshiva ready for use. The Rabbi asked the man who frequents his yeshiva what gift he could give his brother at the Torah dedication as a sign of appreciation. He told him his brother had mentioned he wanted a Yerushalayim Shel Zahav plaque that had glass on the outside and gold on the inside. The Rabbi once again couldn't believe his ears. He said he had bought that exact plaque months before to give to someone else as a gift, but that person left Israel before he had a chance to give it to him. It had been sitting in his home, wrapped up collecting dust. The Rabbi joyfully presented it to the donor at the dedication and told me the hashgacha here was amazing. The one man who was able to make this connection was sitting right in front of the Rabbi as he was basically thinking out loud how he would get a Torah. Hashem had it all worked out down to the last detail, including the gift he was going to give to the donor. In general, we are supposed to make a normal hishtadlut and recognize it's Hashem who is blessing our efforts, but when a normal hishtadlut is not possible, we work hard on our bitachon and realize Hashem's abilities to help us without a normal hishtadlut .
