The second you give up that’s when you lose – Parashat Beha’alotecha

Rabbi Alon Anava – Brings back the topic of Pesach Sheni which we actually had on the Jewish calendar over a month ago but is brought up again in this week’s Torah Portion. Why is there a second chance for the holiday of Pesach (Passover) specifically? Why are there no second chances for other Jewish holidays? What is so special about Pesach that it “requires” a second chance? Why are we talking about this now (isn’t it too late)? Why is this related to Brit Milah (circumcision)? Listen to the calls by Rabbi Anava to learn the answers to these questions.

Rabbi Yitzchak Breitowitz – Double Feature 1

The Period of the Omer and Love Your Neighbor as Yourself – Rabbi Breitowitz shares how the current Omer counting period has both a positive and negative perspective. The positive is the joyous period between leaving slavery (Pesach) and receiving the Torah (Shavuot). The negative is 24,000 students of the great sage, Rabbi Akiva, dies during this period of time – which makes the Omer a time of mourning. The ultimate goal of this mourning is to rectify the character trait of not giving kavod to others (“love your neighbor as yourself”). Watch the video to get filled in on all the details in between.

Counting the Omer and Seeking Purpose

Rabbi Yitzchak Breitowitz – Shares about the Omer period of time that we are in between Pesach and Shavuot and explains some very interesting disagreements between Jews of the past and present on when actually to start counting the Omer. The Rabbi made some very clear distinctions about the difference between Shabbat and the Jewish Holidays and our relationship as Jews to each one (a fascinating discussion).

Double Feature Tuesday – Rabbi Tatz and Rabbi Kessin

The first video focuses on a commonly discussed topic, Tzedaka (Charity). It’s always good to get several different viewpoints to learn the various aspects of this important mitzvah.

The second video focuses on the Sfira (the current daily counting period we are currently in between Pesach and Shavuot) and what the Jews are trying to rectify during this time period.

KLM: Dayenu the Heart and Soul of the Seder

Rabbi Asher Baruch Wegbreit – Shares how we can elevate the Pesach song Dayenu on this coming up Seder! We are “paid” by Hashem for our mitzvot – not only for actions, not only for speech, but also for thoughts. Dayenu!

Monday Marathon – Pesach and More

After several days without video posts – here are plenty of good videos about various topics including of course the upcoming Pesach holiday. Rabbi Yitzchak Breitowitz mentioned in one of the videos below that Jews tend to (overly/obsessively) focus on cleaning for Pesach to find every last crumb of chametz in a physical sense. However, that’s only half the battle – it’s also important for Jews to uncover and clean the “spiritual” chametz inside of us to help us come to Pesach spiritually clean from our yetzer harah (our inclincation towards evil thoughts and actions).

How to Receive Clarity In a Time of Utter Darkness

Rabbi David Kalmus – Shares how the light of the Sun is really the light of Hashem. We can choose to be the moon and be a vessel for that light.

Personal Thoughts – I liked how the Rabbi describes the benefits of faith vs. nature and appreciated the understanding of how difficult this is to actualize in real life. Chag Sameach!

KLM A Pesach Epiphany of Freedom, Amaze the Angels and The 4 Cups

Rabbi Asher Baruch Wegbreit – Shares with us some ways on how to have kavanah (intent) when we celebrate Pesach (Passover) this year. Also, he has some free giveaways available to help us enjoy the Seder.

Personal Thoughts – I enjoy learning about the many aspects of every mitzvah I do. My goal is to get closer to my Creator and my challenge is how to not always just to stay focused on the action (mitzvah) but the intent of why I’m doing it in the first place.
