Letters from the Rosh Yeshiva Shlit"a



בעזרת ה' יתברך-יום א' פ' בא, כ"ט טבת, שנת תשע"ט


I’m sure you have heard the following vort on this weeks parsha: why Hashem commanded Moshe "בא על פרעה"; come to pharaoh, instead of "לך על פרעה"; go to pharaoh? The pshat is, Hashem was conveying to Moshe, “come, come with me to pharaoh;” meaning in whichever situation you find yourself, I am there with you. This comes to teach us, always remember, in every circumstance, Hashem is there and you have nothing to fear.

It’s time for you to emerge from your naivete, and worry which consumes you all day. Stop agonizing over the future, remember Hashem is in control, and his power is infinite; he is the one who provides parnassah, and one must surrender to him and realize ‘everything that transpires is for my benefit only.’

Strengthen your faith, and review constantly: “Hashem is in control;” by doing so, you will remove all your fears.

Chazal say (Sanhedrin 67:) A witch once wanted to cast magic on the holy Amora Reb Chanina; to which he replied "אי מסתייעת זילי עבידי, אין עוד מלבדו כתיב", you can try to work your witchcraft as much as you want, but I don’t fear you, because I believe in the holy Torah which states (Devarim 4, 35); "אין עוד מלבדו"; when one completely believes in Hashem, nothing in the world has the power to harm him; no דינים  or sorcery can manipulate control over him.

May Hashem help you succeed in all your endeavors.
