OPENING ILLUSTRATION: Prepare yourself to want to say, “Awe…” at the end of this story. One of my earliest memories was hiding under a table in our living room. It had been pushed up against a wall so we could clean. I don't know if every family is like this, but when our family came to visit my parents went crazy thinking we had to clean our house to the nth degree. And my family growing up were slobs - that's a nice way of saying it. I was under that table crying my eyes out because my dad had told me to clean a particular room, my mom had told me to clean the bathroom, and my older brother had yelled at me and told me to put a bunch of junk away. I was under that table crying because I couldn't do all of them at once and I was afraid they were all going to be angry with me so I hid… Can I tell you a secret about me and you? When we were growing up, we all learned ways of dealing with the brokenness in this world - patterns of living, paths to walk on that seemed to “save” us… For me, hiding and escaping became my mechanism - when things get painful - I escape by making things fun and funny… and guess what… Hiding or escaping became a type of salvation for me… b And it worked - for a while until it didn't… I'm not alone in this Some of you are the opposite of me you don't try to escape, you try to control - you found that when you stood up and took the wheel - that you felt better, so you became a controller Some of you need to bring things into order - and you have to have everything perfect all the time and perfection was your salvation… For some of you, it was relationships and people - needing people in your world who could make you feel good and keep you from being alone There are a million ways that we all set up idols to run to for salvation b But any salvation that is not found in Jesus leads to death I want to read you a passage Jesus read about Himself… Listen to it: Isaiah 61:1-2 The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, 2 to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor Good news to the poor Bind up the brokenhearted Proclaim freedom for the captives Release from darkness for prisoners b Let me be clear - Jesus' salvation is found in the forgiveness of sins - but that's only the starting point - He came not just to forgive but to restore and set you free It is Jesus saying in John 8:36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. He wants to bind up your broken heart, he wants to bring freedom to you, he wants to give you good news if you're poor and bring light into your darkness… Maybe you're asking… So, if Jesus wants to restore and set me free, then why do I still seem to struggle so much? I'll tell you what I think it is… Many of us recognized our need for a Deliverer in Jesus but never died to our old strategy of salvation… ILLUSTRATION: For me, it looks like this… I have a painful week of failing at every turn. I forget to do something major for my wife and start to feel like a failure. I miss an important meeting accidentally. And it's all capped off by someone coming into my office to complain about something I said in my sermon. I go home and while Jenni and the kids are upstairs, I open the cupboard and pull out a package of Oreos and I start to escape… I don't even realize how much I try to escape and just how quick my muscle memory goes back to those patterns of salvation. B I, at that moment, am completely atheist. Because I am treating my broken incomplete heart with a completely godless solution. So, what do you do? I want you to listen to Paul in Romans - he's been building up the gospel and how Jesus is like Adam - how just as through one man sin entered the world, so does the solution come through one man and that His death becomes salvation for all… Romans 6:2bff We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer? 3 Or don't you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? 4 We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. 5 For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will certainly also be united with him in a resurrection like his. 6 For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with,[a] that we should no longer be slaves to sin— 7 because anyone who has died has been set free from sin. Did you notice what Paul said? He said that when we were baptized, we were baptized into Jesus' Death b This is a mystery - when Jesus died - He died once, for all - Paul is connecting the dots “we know our old self was crucified with him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with.” This is why baptism is SO vital Because you are choosing in that moment to identify that your life has died… -you are going into a medium that literally could kill you -you are losing complete control as someone else buries you -you are giving up the fight of sin and control in your life and taking hold of the gift of death… See, I think the problem for most of us is when we were baptized we didn't unite with Jesus' death in our body and die to ourselves - we just wanted a get out jail free card - not a complete restoration of our being. Jesus came to restore your whole self But that means that when you go under the water - you actually have to stop the fight… CLOSING ILLUSTRATION: That day when I was crying under the table. My mom and dad found me and asked me, Kent, what's wrong - I told them what was going on. And my dad and mom comforted me and told me I didn't have to hide or run, that I didn't have to carry all that burden myself. Listen - Jesus died so you could die to your sin, so He could pull you out from the tables you've set up in your life that are your protective muscle memory. Isn't it time that you came out and died to those things and started letting His light in? What does that mean? b It means when you find yourself in the proverbial cupboard eating the proverbial oreo - that you start to untangle your heart before God and ask Him to help reveal to you why you so quickly became an atheist and turned to something other than Him for restoration of your heart. Remember, you died in that water - you now live the life Jesus came to offer - HERE and NOW, not in the future. There is a God who longs to pull you out from the table and wipe your tears! Let Him today! ------------------ DON'T FORGET - WRITE A SHORT SERMON - YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO DO A FINANCIAL UPDATE AND PREPARE EVERYONE FOR "STORIES OF IMPACT" SERIES. Romans 6:1-14 What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? 2 By no means! We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer? 3 Or don't you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? 4 We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. 5 For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will certainly also be united with him in a resurrection like his. 6 For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with,[a] that we should no longer be slaves to sin— 7 because anyone who has died has been set free from sin. 8 Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. 9 For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him. 10 The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God. 11 In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus. 12 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires. 13 Do not offer any part of yourself to sin as an instrument of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer every part of yourself to him as an instrument of righteousness. 14 For sin shall no longer be your master, because you are not under the law, but under grace. One of my favorite things to get to be a part of is someones baptism. It's one of the greatest pleasures of my life! God takes someone dying to themself and gives them new life. Peter says it's the point where God forgives someone their sin and gives them the gift of the Holy Spirit. Baptism is literally the point where water, for you and me, ends with us giving up the fight. It is “no more fight”… STUDY: -Paul's argument is that baptism was the union of our own death with Christ - it is where we are crucified -Vs 6 - "done away with" could also be "rendered powerless" -It's an important question to ask yourself where you have become a slave to something other than Christ. What does it look like to die to sin and have sin in your body be rendered powerless -sin lives in your body - it can very much be from a thought patter or a muscle memory you have. Most people try to fight those inclinations without changing the root - dying to the bodily control of that habit or desire. -vs 10 - the death he died he died to sin - Paul's whole argument is that we have been united and brought into the death of Christ through baptism. Jesus' death was to sin - it was once for all - it's WHY we all need to be united to His death - it's how we die to sin - we become participants in the cross with Christ. Because His death was my death. So, how do we live? The same way He lived. the life he lives, He lives to God. -vs 11-14 then become the masthead of the Christian life - of entering into the kingdom through Jesus. -it's about... -counting yourself dead to sin - but alive to God in Christ Jesus -not letting sin reign in your body - by becoming aware of the evil desires you have -stop offering your body as an instrument of wickedness, instead offer yourself to God -offer every part of yourself to Him as instrument of righteousness -Sin is no longer your master because you are under grace, not the law... -there needs to be some discussion of spiritual formation - helping people to realize that there can be a change in your spiritual state that does not affect your body - the habits you've cultivated to survive in a fallen world. All of your struggle in the Christian life will come from leaving this muscle memory untouched. You grew up in a world where you had to learn to fight and struggle for yourself, in a world that was inexorably tied to self-preservation and self-orientation. -you have now entered into a world where you must trust God to have your well being as His primary concern and your primary concern becomes His will in the world.. (think of Deut 8:3 - He humbled you by letting you go hungry. Then he provided you with mana to eat so that you might learn that man does not live on bread alone but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.) -Baptizo - baptize, dip in or under water; immerse. -Baptism - is it because of the drowning that it symbolizes Death? -About Judaism & baptism (Mikvah) (https://www.chabad.org/theJewishWoman/article_cdo/aid/1541/jewish/The-Mikvah.htm) The Midrash relates that after being banished from Eden, Adam sat in a river that flowed from the garden. This was an integral part of his teshuvah (repentance) process, of his attempt at return to his original perfection.Before the revelation at Sinai, all Jews were commanded to immerse themselves in preparation for coming face to face with G‑d.In the desert, the famed “well of Miriam” served as a mikvah. And Aaron and his sons' induction into the priesthood was marked by immersion in the mikvah.In Temple times, the priests as well as each Jew who wished entry into the House of G‑d had first to immerse in a mikvah.On Yom Kippur, the holiest of all days, the High Priest was allowed entrance into the Holy of Holies, the innermost chamber of the Temple, into which no other mortal could enter. This was the zenith of a day that involved an ascending order of services, each of which was preceded by immersion in the mikvah.The primary uses of mikvah today are delineated in Jewish law and date back to the dawn of Jewish history. They cover many elements of Jewish life. Mikvah is an integral part of conversion to Judaism. It is used, though less widely known, for the immersion of new pots, dishes and utensils before they are utilized by a Jew. The mikvah concept is also the focal point of the taharah, the purification rite of a Jew before the person is laid to rest and the soul ascends on high. The manual pouring of water in a highly specific manner over the entire body of the deceased serves this purpose.Mikvah is also used by men on various occasions; with the exception of conversion, they are all customary. The most widely practiced are immersion by a groom on his wedding day and by every man before Yom Kippur. Many Chassidic men use the mikvah before each Shabbat and holiday, some even making use of mikvah each day before morning prayer (in cities with large populations of observant Jews, special mikvahs for men facilitate these customs). But the most important and general usage of mikvah is for purification by the menstruant woman.For the menstruant woman, immersion in a mikvah is part of a larger framework best known as Taharat Hamishpachah (Family Purity). As with every area of Jewish practice, Family Purity involves a set of detailed laws; namely, the “when” “what” and “how” of observance.Men or women in Temple times, who were precluded from services because of ritual defilement, could, after immersion, alight the Temple Mount, enter the House of G‑d and involve themselves in sacrificial offerings and the like. The case of the convert is most dramatic. The individual who descends into the mikvah as a gentile emerges from beneath its waters as a Jew. -The Jewish people prescribe that a Mikvah must be from living water - water that is of natural origin. Interesting to think that Jesus IS the living water - he offers it and says it will come out of you... Living water comes from God - He is the origin of living water itself. So, for Jesus to say living water will come out of you, He is saying that He is the origin of living water

Today we have another beautiful story to share, with a message, from the new book about Rabbi Shlomo Zalman Auerbach, Gaon Yisrael ( page 377): A boy who was a Baal Teshuva ( came from an ir religious background and returned to his roots ) had a close connection to Rabbi Shlomo Zalman. One day , he was walking Rabbi Shlomo Zalman back to his home from synagogue, and while on the way , the boy shared all of his concerns and issues: he was in a new yeshiva, he was not yet acclimated to the new system, his parents were pressuring him to leave yeshiva … he was going through a lot of different challenges. Ra v Shlomo Zalman listened and empathized as they walked. When they got to Rabbi Shlomo Zalman's house , they began to climb the many steps together. And as they walked up, the Rabbi would periodically grimace or groan, and say, “ Oy it's so hard..” By the time they got to the 30 th step, he was expressing pain and difficulty from the climb. The boy was in shock. Rabbi Shlomo Zalman was rarely seen with anything less than a smile on his face. This behavior was out of character. But when they finally got to the top step and were in front of his doo r, the Rabbi put on a big smile and said, “ It was hard going up the stairs, but I went one step at a time , and I was successful. I made it.“ He was sending a message to the boy. In life , quite often there are difficulties and challenges, but if you walk up one step at a time, you will eventually get to your final destination or goal. And he didn't just tell this to the boy, he acted it out. With his great wisdom , he was able to immediately apply an analogy in a real life way . This is an example of his brilliance , and at the same time , his ability to soothe and calm somebody that was suffering. In another lesson from his life, when the Yom Kippur war broke out , Rabbi Shlomo Zalman was in the hospital recovering from a small procedure. Fearing that the re woul d be many incoming casualties ( which Baruch Hashem there weren't) the hospital discharged most of the people that weren't seriously ill. Right after he was released from the hospital, one of his students came to visit him and saw that the Rabbi was dressed in his regular fashion, walking around as if nothing had happened . His student questioned this. He re he was, was walking around fine although he should've been in the hospital. Rabbi Shlomo Zalman explained a rule, “ God gave snow based on the w ool,” which means if there are a lot of wo ol blankets, God will send snow , but if there are no wool blankets, God will not bring the snow because no one has protection. He said that along as long as the hospital was available, he was able to suffer because the hospital was there to take care of him. But now that the hospital was closed . Hashem could not keep him in a situation where he would need a hospital if there was none available to him . These are very comforting words. Sometimes people get frantic when situations come up w here seemingly , people can't survive. R abbi Shlomo Zalman appl ied this rule to the people that survived in Russia under the communist regime. Many almost - miraculous things happened to them. Of course , we always have to do our hishtadlut .We need hospitals and medicine and everything else. But it would be interesting to see a study on how many people in the Ukraine were able to survive without their medicine. How could it be? The answer is that Hashem can only demand from you what you are able to do. God protects the foolish . If you don't know, then you aren't responsible. God cannot hold you responsible for not taking care of yourself when you a ren't able. There's a connection between the story about walking up the steps and the fact that God only asks us to do what we are able. The N efesh Chaim says that when a king asks his servant to go up a flight of steps, he does not expect him to jump six steps at a time. He expects him to go one step at a time , according to his ability. And it is like that in life as well. One step at a time, and only as much as we can do. More than that is not asked of us. Have a wonderful day.

Hashem's Reward and Punishment

There's a story told in Rav Chaim Kanievsky's Sefer Orchot Yosher, ( Artscroll, page 98) which is a lesson in both Hashem's hashgacha and the concept of Middah K'Neged Middah/ measure for measure, how a person is exactly rewarded for what they do based , on their deeds. Hashem, in His infinite wisdom is able to reward someone for what they did, even while at the same time punishing them for what they did wrong . God does not mix the two accounts. The T omer Devorah says that human beings can't do this. If two people aren't on speaking terms for whatever reason, they can't remember the one good thing the other person did . Rav Chaim tells the story of an ir religious woman who once died suddenly in Bnei Brak . Normall y in Israel , like in other countries, when somebody suddenly dies, they do an autopsy. But when someone passes away in Bnei Brak or Yerushalayim, or from some other religious community, there's an understanding that they don't do autopsies. This woman was not religious, and technically she could've been sent to the regular morgue. But since she had died in Bnei Brak, the people (Rav Chaim and his friends) decided to consider her as a religious woman from Bnei Brak and wanted to avoid the autopsy. In order to avoid the autopsy, they arranged for all the respectable people of the city to come to her funeral, just as they w ould do for one of the rabbis.. S o she got an extra respectable funera l, as if this woman was one of theirs, from a distinguished family, in order to avoid the autopsy. When Rav Chaim return ed home and told his mother what happen ed, his mother said that she had known this woman in Moscow. She had desecrated Shabbat in public and ate on Yom Kippur. The woman was obviously not religious , and R av Chaim's mother was surprised that she merited such a distinguished funeral. To avoid an autopsy is one thing, but to have all the distinguished rabbis of Bnei Brak come to the funeral, as if she was distinguished Rebitzen , was another matter . Rav Chaim explained that it was ultimately discovered that this woman had been in the concentration camps during the war. She was in charge of burying the dead, and she attended to her job with devotion. Therefore, he said , she was given the honor and pleasure that was acc orded to her , at her death . Rav Chaim explained that a dead person does sense the honor that they get at their funeral ; and in th is way, she received reward for what she did . He said that we see from this, Middah kneged Middah. The lady had de voted herself to tending to the bodies of the dead, and this merited her body being sa feguarded from an autopsy . So although , on one hand , this woman was an extremely ir religious person, even before the concentration camps, nonetheless she received reward that she deserved for the deed that she did. In another story, Rav Chaim wrote about a Jewish widower who had hired a non-Jewish woman to help raise his children , and the woman took devoted care of the children. Many years later, one of the boys whom she had cared for happen ed upon the funeral of an elderly non-Jewish woman. He overheard them saying that the woman had always boast ed about how she took care of Jewish children. After investigating, the son realized that this had been the very woman that cared for him in his childhood. Hashem worked it out that he should be present at her funeral, in order to give her the honor she deserved. This is fascinating. One of the fundamentals of our Emuna system is Schar VOnesh/ reward and punishment . These stories illustrate that not a deed goes by unnoticed. R av Shach , when he was in the town of Vilna, saw a book with a record of all the events that happened in Viln a (it was later destroyed) . In the book, he read of how the Gaon of Vilna's relative ( wife, or mother possibly) used to go collecting Sedaka with her friend. They made a deal with each other that whoever passed away first would come back in a dream and describe the next world to her friend. Then, one of them passed away and came back and explained that she could not reveal what was going on, that she was sworn to secrecy , but that she could tell her one thing . She reminded her friend of the time, way back, when they were collecting money on a Friday afternoon, and they had exhausted all of their usual sources . They then decided to go collect in the market place. The friend noticed someone across the street and picked up her finger and pointed, and said, “ Hey there is so-and- so , let's go ask him.“ The friend explained, “ You followed me , and we went there . And in the next world , it says that when I picked up my finger in pointed, and you followed, I got a little more reward for that .” From this we see how exact Hashem's appreciation is , for all of our deeds, regardless of our misdeeds. Every deed is vibrant, and God rewards i t, as we see from th ese stories. Have a wonderful day.

This week's learning is sponsored by Judy and Zev Berman for the refuah shleima of our sister-in-law, Phyllis Hecht. Please say tehilim for גיטל פעשא בת מאשה רחל. May she have a complete recovery and may we all share b'sorot tovot. The statement made to Shmuel's father that a woman who spits at her yabam only, forbids all the brothers from performing yibum, can be understood also according to Rabbi Akiva’s opinion. How? If Rabbi Akiva doesn’t think spitting is an essential part of the ceremony, why does he distinguish then between reading and spitting regarding disqualifying the brothers from yibum? A different version is brought regarding the halacha that was sent to Shmuel’s father - that if a yevama spit but didn't do chalitza, she should do chalitza and does not need to spit again. A situation like that happened and she did not spit a second time. What is the harm done in spitting a second time? Levi was asked three questions by people in the villages but he did not know the answers and went to the beit midrash to find out the answers. Two were about chalitza and one was about "writings of truth" mentioned in a verse in Daniel 10:21. From the writings of truth, the Gemara gets into a discussion regarding teshuva and what kind of decrees can be undone and which ones cannot. Even though Eli's family (in Samuel 1) were punished and God swore that they will not be atoned for with sacrifices, they can atone by learning Torah or doing acts of chessed. What is the difference between the power of the individual and the power of the community regarding prayers that can overturn a decree? What is the unique nature of the ten days of teshuva between Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur? Another halacha sent to Shmuel's father was also relating to the question they asked Levi, if a yevama spat blood, it is effective as blood is mixed with saliva. A source is brought to contradict but it is resolved as there are different ways in which someone bleeds in one's mouth. There is a debate regarding the validity of a chalitza with a woman who is a minor. From where does each derive his opinion? In order to show that the tana kama's opinion is that of Rabbi Yosi, a story is brought which includes some tension between Rabbi Yishmael, son of Rabbi Yosi, and Avdan. The story ends with a number of punishments to Avdan for insulting Rabbi Yishmael. Why was it necessary to state both that the halacha is not like the pair of rabbis who said that chalitza can be performed in front of two people and that chalitza needs to be performed in front of three people? Some questions are asked regarding the case the Mishna had quoted of the chalitza in the jail. Is it possible no one witnessed it - don't we need testimony to confirm that it in fact took place? Was Rabbi Akiva in the prison or the couple themselves?

The story ends with a number of punishments to Avdan for insulting Rabbi Yishmael. Why was it necessary to state both that the halacha is not like the pair of rabbis who said that chalitza can be performed in front of two people and that chalitza needs to be performed in front of three people? Some questions are asked regarding the case the Mishna had quoted of the chalitza in the jail. Is it possible no one witnessed it - don't we need testimony to confirm that it in fact took place? Was Rabbi Akiva in the prison or the couple themselves?

Daf Yomi for Women – דף יומי לנשים – English

Today's daf is sponsored in honor of the inimitable Phyllis Hecht, whose spirit of determination, through challenges, inspires us all. Stay well, dear friend. With love from the Hadran Zoom Family. In what situations can a convert serve as a judge? Can one use a shoe for chalitza ideally or is it less than ideal as ideally, a sandal should be used? It is a subject of debate among tannaim and amoraim. The reason for those who hold that a shoe is less ideal is because of concern that it may be torn (as shoes were made of soft leather and sandals made of hard leather) or because some shoes do not cover the majority of the foot, as is required in chalitza. A strap is used to fasten the sandal more firmly so that it won't fall off, but will be removed by the yevama. It is required for the yevama to untie the laces, remove the shoe it must be taken off most of the heel. Several unanswered questions are raised about the exact requirement of removing the shoe. There needs to be intent for chalitza by both the yevama and the yabam to perform the mitzva. The shoe must be made of leather - from where is this derived? The strap can be made of goat's hair, as it is also from an animal. Rav Kahane proves from a verse that the root ch.l.tz refers to removal; therefore, we learn that chalitza means removing the shoe. However other verses are quoted which indicate that the root ch.l.tz means to strengthen and perhaps the yevama needs to put the shoe on the yabam. This suggestion is rejected by extrapolating the verse that explains how chalitza is to be performed. A heretic brought a verse that indicates the God performed chalitza on the Jewish people and therefore they are no longer God's nation. Rabban Gamliel responds by proving him wrong. Can a soft shoe made a cloth (anpalia) be used? Is it considered a shoe? A contradiction is brought between a source regarding shoes in the Temple and shoes on Yom Kippur regarding the anpalia and whether or not it is considered a shoe. Rava and Abaye resolve the contradiction differently.

Tomará parte de la sangre del novillo y de la sangre del macho cabrío, y la pondrá sobre los cuernos del altar en su derredor. Rociará sobre él la sangre siete veces con su dedo, y lo purificará y santificará de las impurezas de los hijos de Israel. “Cuando haya acabado de hacer expiación por el santuario, por el tabernáculo de reunión y por el altar, hará acercar el macho cabrío vivo. Aarón pondrá sus dos manos sobre la cabeza del macho cabrío vivo y confesará sobre él todas las iniquidades, las rebeliones y los pecados de los hijos de Israel, poniéndolos así sobre la cabeza del macho cabrío. Luego lo enviará al desierto por medio de un hombre designado para ello. Aquel macho cabrío llevará sobre sí, a una tierra inhabitada, todas las iniquidades de ellos. El hombre encargado dejará ir el macho cabrío por el desierto.-----------------------------------------Este capítulo explica la fiesta solemne llamada el "día de expiación'' o en hebreo Yom kippur.Está debía celebrarse cada año y de una forma especial. Se debía presentar, entre varios sacrificios, dos carneros. Uno sería sacrificado por el pueblo y el otro sería dejado vivo, después de que el sacerdote pusiera las manos sobre él y traspasara todos los pecados del pueblo sobre el animal. Después se soltaba para que quedara libre y deambular en el desierto, en señal de que todos los pecados del pueblo eran dejados en el olvido. De esta forma, las culpas de Israel ya no estaban sobre ellos, evitando la maldición sobre el pueblo, y más bien esas maldades quedaban en un lugar seco y desierto. Pero quiero que detallemos el mandato al sacerdote principal. Él debía primero presentarse delante de Dios para interceder primero por él antes de interceder por los demás. Esto es un detalle muy especial para cada uno de los que somos cabeza de hogar, pues somos los líderes espirituales de nuestras familias. Seas padre o madre soltera, o llevas la responsabilidad del hogar con tu pareja, también eres un líder, el encargado de la supervivencia y seguridad de cada miembro del hogar. No podemos bendecirlos en el nombre de Jesucristo o clamar por la protección de Dios para cubrirlos del mal, si primero nosotros no estamos a cuenta con el Señor. Es imprescindible que primero vengamos ante la presencia del Señor en humillación y entrega. Debemos confesar nuestros errores y pecados al Señor y encomendarnos a Él. Después sentiremos nuestros corazones llenos de la gracia de Dios, y confiados de que nuestras almas estarán cubiertas bajo la justicia de Dios.Miremos unos ejemplos de líderes que se presentaron delante de Dios y pudieron interceder después por sus familias. Moisés intercedió por los hijos de Israel cuando Dios quería destruirlos; Josué dijo: “Mi casa y yo serviremos al Señor”; la abuela Loida y madre Eunice de Timoteo hicieron un gran trabajo espiritual guiando a Timoteo, gran predicador joven bajo el ministerio de Pablo.Cuando entregamos nuestras vidas siendo transparentes y sinceros delante del Señor, Dios bendice de forma especial a nuestra familia cuando pedimos su bendición sobre ellos. Serás el contacto directo con Dios para ayudarlos en los momentos cuando ellos se encuentren distanciados del Señor, cuando se equivoquen o cuando el enemigo quiera atacarlos. Tú podrás guiarlos por el camino recto, dándoles palabras de sabiduría que el Señor pondrá en tu boca; podrás orar por ellos y ellos sentirán el perdón de Dios.Toda esta autoridad y privilegios divinos los tendrás, siempre y cuando primero te santifiques delante del Señor. Soy tu amigo y hermano Eduardo Rodríguez. Que el Señor te unja con su santo Espíritu y escuche tu oración intercesora.

He describes how Christ has already fulfilled His part of the Day of Atonement in His sacrificial death and resurrection, but that the complete fulfilment of this Feast awaits Israel's national repentance in the Tribulation, when all Israel will be saved, which will then provide the basis for the 2nd Coming of Christ, when He will fulfil the Feast of Tabernacles.

In the latest edition of Search for Meaning, Stephen Wise Temple Senior Rabbi Yoshi Zweiback hosts Ken Lindner, a super-agent and author.In this wide-ranging discussion, Lindner—author of the recently-released book "Aspire Higher"—delves into his childhood struggle with weight and self esteem. He and Rabbi Yoshi examine how that struggle shaped not only Lindner's amateur athletic career, but his ascendance as an agent to some of the top news personalities in the United States.Lindner details how his father's long work weeks led him to develop feelings of insecurity and un-love-ability, which in turn led to toxic emotions, binge eating and bad decisions. At the age of 4, Lindner was so frustrated with his father for his perceived lack of attention and approval that he threw a brick at him. "My aim was as bad as my judgement," says Lindner, who thankfully missed.The two reconciled and bonded over paddle tennis, which led to Lindner's emergence as a tennis phenom in Brooklyn, where he beat the famed Bobby Riggs. As his confidence grew, he developed discipline and cultivated an even-keeled disposition. He also fell in love with learning. He mastered his emotions, and as he read more broadly, began to examine how control of one's emotions or desires relates to what Judaism says about strength and power."I believe every day is a Rosh Hashanah or a Yom Kippur," he tells Rabbi Yoshi. "We should assimilate information every day—what we're doing right, what we're doing wrong, and how to be better."As Lindner's emotional intelligence and curiosity grew, he began to understand his father more: A Polish immigrant with only the barest of educations, he had lost his father at an early age and worked as he did so that his son could have the education he never did. Lindner discusses his father's role in the establishment of department store T.J. Maxx, and how that led him to a serendipitous encounter with Sam "Cookie" Weisbord, who persuaded him to work at the William Morris Agency, instead of at a law firm that had the agency as a client.From Bjorn Borg and Vitas Gerulaitis, Air Supply, and Kate Kapshaw, to Lester Holt, Mario Lopez, Colin Cowherd, and Megyn Kelly, to local talents Christine Devine, Dallas Raines, and Pat Harvey, Lindner and his team have worked with a laundry list of stars. He has espoused his positive life choice psychology both in "Aspire Higher" and "Career Choreography," which has its roots in his own experience.While not officially a client, he's even counseled Rabbi Yoshi. Over a lunch early in their relationship, he suggested to the then Head of School at Wise School that he should apply to be the Senior Rabbi at Stephen Wise Temple. Rabbi Yoshi will be celebrating seven years in that position this year, and he will be honored for his 10 years of service to the Wise community at the Wise Gala on May 7.

This the time to stop our slavery to habits, belief systems and objects, the time to prepare ourselves to the freedom awaiting us in the 5780's.

Study Guide Yevamot 34 This week's learning is sponsored by Sharon Hirsch in honor of her daughter, daughters-in-law and granddaughters. Today's learning is sponsored by Rikki and Alan Zibitt in loving memory of Rikki's mother, Frieda Carlin, Fraidl bat Meir v'Rivka on the occasion of her 7th Yahrzeit. May her neshama have an Aliyah. After discussing the different opinions of Rabbi Shimon and Rabbi Yosi regarding actions that could possibly incur multiple prohibitions, the Gemara associates our Mishna with the opinion of Rabbi Meir who holds that in cases of prohibitions that are inclusive (issur kollel) and ones that are expanded (issur mosif) and ones that happen at the same time, one is obligated for each one (issur chal al issur). This is proven by a Mishna in Keritot regarding an impure person who ate on Yom Kippur forbidden fats from a sacrifice that were leftover beyond their time (notar) – they are obligated to bring four sin offerings and one guilt offering. Rabbi Meir there adds that if it was Shabbat and the person was eating it as they walked out on one domain and into another, they would be obligated as well for carrying on Shabbat. This case includes all three types. How does the ruling regarding the mistake in the kiddushin relate to a debate regarding one who makes a mistake while performing a mitzva? The Gemara suggests that the Mishna could also be explained according to Rabbi Shimon if it can be explained that all the prohibitions came simultaneously. Rav Amram brings a possible scenario in which this could be. There is an assumption that women can’t (or likely do not) get pregnant the first time they have sexual relations. If so, why does the Mishna rule that the woman needs to wait three months before going back to her actual husband? An answer is brought to resolve the question. Didn’t Tamar get pregnant during her first time having relations? Firstly, the Gemara establishes how they know she was still a virgin. Then they resolve the question. Another issue regarding impurity that relates to the assumption that women don’t get pregnant from their first time having relations is discussed. Rabbi Yochanan said that a woman who was married and the marriage ended and she waited more than ten years before getting remarried, could no longer bear children. However, Rav Nachman limits this to one who did not have a desire to get remarried during that time. A few cases of this are brought including Rav Chisda's daughter’s marriage to Rava which was after ten years of her being married to Rami bar Hama, and yet she bore children from that marriage. What women do not have to wait three months before remarrying?
