Letters from the Rosh Yeshiva Shlit"a

Limud HaTorah


בעזרת ה' יתברך-יום א' פ' בשלח, ז' שבט, שנת תשע"ט


Don’t wait until Friday to start being מעביר סדרה, instead begin on Sunday, continue on Monday, and so on, and by the end of the week you will be done with the entire Parsha.

Your week will feel different when you learn some Chumash and Rashi every day; the Baal Hatanya z”l said: “A Yid must live in the present”, meaning one must live with the weekly Parsha. He must learn some Chumash and Rashi daily, and find encouragement therein for his challenges.

Set aside a time every day to learn some Mishnayos; Mishnayos cleanses a person from his Aveiros, and propels him to higher levels in Avodas Hashem. The holy Beis Yosef would learn forty, or even fifty Perakim Mishnayos at once; in this Zechus he merited a heavenly Malach who came and learned Torah with him.

Dear….! Run away from Machlokes! There is nothing that is so despised by Hashem as Machlokes; especially between us; Talmidei Hichel Hakodesh; we came to the Rebbe for one reason; he should help us with our problems, and struggles; therefore, we must be vigilant, and not let the Yetzer Hora interfere, because all he wants is to make us lose this world and the next.

We must fulfill what the holy Rebbe requested (Chai Maharan 292): “The world will marvel at the intense love you have for one another.” This is what Maharosh would constantly review and repeat; this is what I guaranteed Maharosh, and I will sacrifice everything to keep that promise; between us there will only be שלום ושלוה.

If you want to bring me pleasure, come and share your Siyumim with me; yesterday evening by Melave Malka, all the Bochurim and Yingeleit related what they gained through the holy Rebbe. There was a Yid here from England who came specially to spend a Shabbos in Hichel Hakodesh; he made a Siyum on Mishnayos and Mesechtas Sukkah; his face shone with the Simcha of a Bar Mitzva Bachur, when he starts his adult life. Another Bochur finished Mishnayos for the seventh time; he disclosed that before he knew about the Rebbe, he always found excuses why not to learn; now, while penning this letter, I received a txt from a Yid who finished Mesechtas Taanis for the forty-eighth time, and Mishnayos for the eighty-ninth. This invigorates me to continue achieving.

See what one can merit when they listen to the holy Rebbe.

May hashem help you succeed in all your endeavors.
