A rabbi told me his daughter recently got married and, baruch Hashem, he was able to pay every last dollar that he needed for all the expenses. Hashem helped him in an amazing way and he doesn't owe even one person money. This past Motzaei Shabbat, his wife told him she was going to need around $500 in cash the next day. The rabbi was literally dow…

In this week's Parasha , Tetzaveh , there are multiple commands that begin with the word V'ata and the Zohar HaKadosh writes the reason for this is to teach us that the Shechina who is called " Ata " was involved in every action which took place. This is a lesson that we need to take in our own lives all the time. When we realize how deeply Hashem …

The pasuk says in Yeshayah, וידעת כי אני ה' לא יבושו קווי - You will know that I am Hashem, those who have hope in Me will not be ashamed. Which means there's a certain way that Hashem deals with people who have real hope in Him. They may not deserve to get what they're hoping for, but because of their hope alone, Hashem ensures they will not be as…

The Chovot HaLevovot writes, when it comes to doing mitzvot, especially those that involve other people, like giving tzedaka , teaching Torah, or honoring parents, a person's sole motivation when doing them should be to connect to Hashem. He should not do these things so that he can make a name for himself, or so that people should honor him, or fo…

The Maharal writes that through tefila a person clings to Hashem yitbarach . The pasuk says, קרוב ה' לכל קוראיו , Hashem is close to all those who call out to Him. Tefila elevates a person and connects him to Hashem. Yet, people say they don't feel any connection. Others say they feel like tefila is a burden and they just try to quickly unload them…

In this week's parasha Terumah , we read about the construction of the Mishkan and its Kelim . One of the Kelim was the Shulhan , which had twelve loaves of bread constantly upon it. Mefarshim tell us, the Shulhan represented parnasa . The sefer L’Binyamin Amar quoted a Ramban saying, since the time of the world's creation, Hashem made it that His …

The Shulchan Aruch writes in Yoreh De'ah , siman 335, if someone, lo alenu , has a sick person in his house, he should go to a Chacham in the city and ask him to pray on behalf of the sick person. When someone gets a beracha from a tzaddik , it's a form of tefila . The tzaddik is asking Hashem to give the person a Refuah Shelema or whatever else is…

Our deeds are very precious to Hashem. The sefer Seder HaYom writes, sometimes the deeds of simple people can bring salvation to the entire Klal Yisrael, especially when the deeds are done with purity, and especially when it's difficult to do them. The Gemara says, גדולה תפילה יותר ממעשים טובים - Tefila is even greater than good deeds. It is clear …

A man once asked the Saba Kadisha if he knew of a segula for parnasa . The Rabbi answered with a pasuk in this week's parasha Mishpatim . ועבדתם את ה' אלוקיכם - You are to serve Ha-Shem your God. וברך את לחמך ואת מימך - and then He will bless your bread and your water. The word avodah , the Rabbi said, refers to tefila . And it's in plural, ועבדתם …
