Letters from the Rosh Yeshiva Shlit"a

#1 - THOSE WHO STRENGTHEN OTHERS, ALSO NEED CHIZUK.
Hafutza

בעזרת ה' יתברך- יום ד' פ' יתרו, י"ז שבט, יומא דהילולא של מוהרא"ש זצוק"ל, שנת תשע"ט


To my dear….


Havreich….., wrote a letter to me, relating how much you enjoy the letters I send every day; it heartened me greatly.


People have this misconception that those who strengthen others, don’t need Chizuk in return; however, the truth is that it’s just the opposite. Chazal state (Sifrei Parshas Nosoi, Piske 1): "אין מחזיקים אלא המחוזקים"; Maharosh explains that those who encourage others need the most encouragement, as it says in Succah (52.); "כל הגדול מחברו – יצרו גדול הימנו"; the Yetzer Hora puts much more emphasis on individuals who engage in drawing Yidden closer to Hashem. Therefore, it brought me great pleasure to hear that you draw strength from the letters.


If only you could take the קונטרסים 'עצתו אמונה', and distribute them to others; you will have a share in bringing Yidden closer to Hashem.


Thank you for your donation to help the Yeshiva; in the merit of Tzedakah may you see success in all your endeavors.
