KLM The Mitzvot of Chanukah – Mastering Appreciation and Gratitude

Rabbi Asher Baruch Wegbreit – In this video, the Rabbi shows us how we can actually do something for Hashem (which seems kind of weird). We can “help” him by publicizing the miracle(s) of Chanukah by lighting our Chanukias (Menorahs). This lighting shows others that we are testifying that Hashem did this miracles for us. The next key the Rabbi reveals is we also need to understand ourselves that we are publicizing the miracle(s) instead of just lighting for lighting sake. So if we understand and we show others than we more fulfill our role in the Chanukah miracle(s) and our places in the story as well.

Triple Feature Tuesday

Three videos from:

Rabbi Moshe Pinto Shlita – Miracles and Kindness and Strength. Three ways of the mechanics of how miracles can occur according to Jewish traditions and the approach to kindness and sacrifice that our Forefathers Avraham Avinu and Yitzchak Avinue and Foremother Sarah Imenu showed us.

Here is an written exerpt from one of the videos (paraphrased from the words of Rabbi Pinto):

What is a miracle? In the Zohar Hakadosh Hashem created the World He created malachim (angels) that represent laws of nature (angel of the sun, angel of the water, etc). The angel also protects the laws of nature that Hashem installed with that specific creation. The Zohar Hakadosh says a miracle is in and of its essence something above nature. In order for Hashem to create a miracle He needs to create a shift of nature for that miracle to happen. Many kabbalists say there are two ways to create a miracle.

Feel free to watch the first video (“The cost of a miracle!”) at timestamp 3:40 to find out how Rabbi Pinto explains those two ways. Very interesting stuff!
