Wishing everyone a wonderful Rosh Hashana!
לְהַנְחִיל אֹהֲבַי יֵשׁ וְאֹצְרֹתֵיהֶם אֲמַלֵּא (משלי פרק ח:כא)
Those who love me will inherit being and I will fill their treasuries (Proverbs 8:21)
Through loving G-d one actually builds one's true self. Sustained labor in Torah learning , prayer and Mitvoth will build a powerful inner strength which can both produce results and withstand hardships. Sin, on the other hand, will cause one to loose one's self and… Continue

Some Advice For the Last Shabbos
By Rabbi Yaacov Haber
I’d like to dedicate this Dvar Torah to my friends Reb Chananya and Zahava Goldenberg who help so many people in need. May Hashem bless them for a wonderful New Year.
This is the last Shabbos of the year. It is, according to many, the most important Shabbos of the year.
It is not by accident that the Parsha speaks about Teshuvah. In about 445 BCE the great leader Ezra brought the Jews back to… Continue

Shabbos: Ta’am HaChaim Nitzavim 5768 Rosh Hashanah 5769
Shabbos in the Parashah
This week is Parashas Nitzavim, which will be followed this coming week by Rosh HaShanah. The general approach to Rosh HaShanah is that it is a day of judgment, when HaShem judges the whole world and decides what will be the outcome for the coming year. It is difficult, however, for a person to feel like he is being judged when he cannot see the judge and is uncertain of what actions he… Continue

The thought of what positive potential a New Year may bring as well as the longing to consign the present year to the archives has rarely been more pronounced than this year. Without touching any political or cultural issue that is part of the current scene, it is clear that when even fundamental values which have defined human society from its inception are up for debate if not disdain, humanity has reached a fork in the road. The choice appears to be between a path that draws out humanity’s… Continue

Fighting In Shul
By Rabbi Yaacov Haber
Rav Moshe Feinstien ZT”l once commented that early on we used to see fierce arguments in Shul over who should get an Aliya and who shouldn’t. He observed that as the years went on things seemed to have become much more civilized and gentlemanly. “Please, you take the Aliya, I’m fine.”
Said Rav Moshe, “I’m really not sure which is worse!”
“Today,” said Moshe, “you have become a people.” (Devarim 27; 10).
