Letters from the Rosh Yeshiva Shlit"a


בעזרת ה' יתברך-יום ב' פ' בשלח, ח' שבט, שנת תשע"ט


Stay strong dear brother; don’t despair; this too will eventually pass.

I know you are going through a hard phase; Hashem is testing you with a difficult Nisoyan; remember though, what the holy Rebbe told R’ Nosson (Sichas Haran 300): “Everything that happens is – למען הבחירה והנסיון”; meaning, every challenge is a trial, to see to whom the person will turn in times of despair.

Listen to what I advise you; take a Tehillim and say a Kapitel; you’ll see, everything will change. The holy Rebbe said (Chai Maharan 485): “A Kapitel Tehillim is comparable to a refreshing drink”; when a person is parched on a hot day, he will grab a glass of cold water to quench his thirst; likewise, when one is floundering in despair, a Kapitel Tehillim is his comfort, and will bring him salvation.

Remember to read Krias Shema before going to sleep; R’ Nosson would say (Likutei Halachos, Krias Shema Shel Hamitah, Halacha 2): “When one reads Krias Shema before going to sleep at night, and is מתוודה his Aveiros; Hashem forgives him for all his sins.”

Good night.
