Rabbi Asher Baruch Wegbreit – Shares with us a way we can thank Hashem for all the good He bestows upon us and the subsequent connection that results from that thanks. Rabbi Wegbreit details a hypothetical situation of when you ask your Father for financial help to help one of your family members going through a health crisis and once the crisis passes you send your Father a telegram of thanks for his help. This can parallel our gratitude and thanks to Hashem when he gets us or those close to us through a crisis we can also send Him a thank you telegram by saying Tehillim Kuf (Psalm #100) with a sense of gratitude and thanks. By developing this two-way relationship with Hashem we can grow a deeper connection to Hashem (aka Devekut) which is an essential purpose of our life. Feel free to watch the Rabbi’s short video to get the whole story (~16 minutes).
Please note – Rabbi Wegbreit gave me permission to let our viewship know that in the video he mentioned both Tehillim Kuf (Psalm #100) and Tehillim Kuf Yud (Psalm #110) however Rabbi Wegbreit meant Tehillim Kuf (Psalm #100) in all cases for this video.
Rabbi Asher Baruch Wegbreit – The Rabbi shares another interesting perspective on how to approach Elul and the benefits in store for those who can follow this approach.
Personal Thoughts – When I was growing up I always looked at Rosh Hashanah as a one-time event that comes and goes. The Rabbi’s class helps me realize that there is actually preparation for the New Year that leads up to the “main event”. As our Sages say, this World is the hallway to the main ball room (the more I prepare in this World the better the main event).

Rabbi Asher Baruch Wegbreit – Shows us concrete steps on how we can actually increase your joy in the month of Adar and fulfill four separate mitvot in the process.
Personal Thoughts – To be honest, sometimes its just not that easy to be happy. Living my way into better thinking through actions (a.k.a. fake it until you make it) is on way to do it. Just do it – be happy!
