Letters from the Rosh Yeshiva Shlit"a



בעזרת ה' יתברך-יום ב' פ' בא, ראש חודש שבט, שנת תשע"ט

 To my dear…

Thank you for your donation for the rent; in the merit of tzedakah may Hashem bless you with success.

You related that you feel distanced from Yeshiva lately. Chazal say (Yerushalmi peah 1, 1) on the pasuk (Devarim 32, 47): "כי לא דבר רק הוא מכם – ואם הוא ריק – מכם", that a feeling is contingent on a person only. This all depends on yourself. Many talmidim express such sentiments after leaving Yeshiva; they have different responsibilities, they must start working to sustain their families, and as a result they feel distanced.

Therefore, take my advice; start engaging yourself in הפצה; start spreading the Rebbe’s עצות, and encouragement, and although you will still be far, you will remain close at heart.

When you look around, you will realize that all the Talmidei Hichel Hakodesh who took הפצה as their calling, are full of energy, life, and vigor.

I noticed after the passing of Maharosh z”l; the talmidim who were strong with הפצה, didn’t seem at all confused; even during the levayah they had the clarity to continue with הפצה.

Those who fell into the category of mekablim – they were only here to receive; became so depressed, that even today; a few years since Maharosh’s passing, they still cannot find comfort.

Through being a משפיע you will feel close, and attached to the holy Rebbe.
