Tomer Devorah – Where Teshuvah (Repentance) starts | Chapter 4 by Rabbi Alon Anava

Rabbi Alon Anava – Good timing for this video as we are approaching Rosh Hashana and the ten day of repentance. Rabbi Anava talks about the important of doing teshuvah everyday not just on specific days of the year and how this process affects us and our soul here and in the World to come. Repentance can empower us to be better as long as we are constantly keeping it at the forefront of our mind and have good intentions towards improvement.

When is jealousy good for you? – Parashat Korach – Rabbi Alon Anava

Rabbi Alon Anava – Shares how jealousy can be a good thing if its for the right reason and the right motivation. The Rabbi also explains when it is bad (like in the case of Korach) and actually deprives us of our special uniqueness given to us by Hashem. This uniqueness is our gift and our life mission – we need it to complete why we are here on this Earth and being jealous of others’ tools for their missions is certainly counter-productive to our life goals.

Special prayer for the 23rd of Sivan – Rabbi Alon Anava

On the 23rd of the month of Sivan (כג׳ סיון) the decree of Haman (At the time of Mordechai and Esther) to annihilate the Jewish nation was nullified. The holy books teach us that this day is a very powerful day for prayers to nullify decrees and anything bad, evil and horrible against us. The same way that from that day and on the situation of the Jewish nation changed and became good, and “Mordecai left the king’s presence with royal raiment” (Esther 8/15) … “and the city of Shushan shouted and rejoiced” … and as a result the Megila says… “The Jews had light and joy, and gladness and honor” – The holy books teach us that this day (Sivan 23) is a powerful day to revoke and nullify any decree against you (Sickness, death, poverty, infertile, etc.)

Therefore on this powerful day there are a few things you want to do:

  1. Light two (2) candles for Esther and Mordechai
  2. Give three (3) coins to charity. The coins should be held with both hands at the same time when placing in the charity box
  3. Read chapters 22, 83, 130, 142 of Tehillim
  4. Read chapter 8 from the Megila of Esther
  5. Read Avinu Malkeinu (Without a blessing, just the text)
  6. Pray from your heart with your words anything you want and need – Ask from Hashem
  7. Recite the short prayer:

אנא ממך אלי צורי וגואלי,
כשם שעשית ניסים ונפלאות לאבותינו בימים ההם בזמן הזה, כן תתמלא רחמים גם עלי, בתוך שאר כל עמך בית ישראל הפזורים בארבע כנפות תבל, ותתמלא רחמים על כולנו, להפוך מהרה מרע לטוב, גם את כל סוגי גזרי הדין, ברוחניות ובגשמיות, בכלליות ובפרטיות, ויהיה מעתה אך טוב וחסד – בגוף ונפש וממון…”
אמן
O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer. From you I am asking mercy!
The same way you performed miracles and wonders to our forefathers and all previous generations, please bestow your mercy on me the same way, to me and all of your nations that are scattered all over the world and in all 4 corners of the earth, and bestow your mercy on all of us, to transform all evil to good, annul all harsh decrees concerning us, tear up the evil [parts] of our sentence both spiritual and physical, both to myself and others and from now on it should be only goodness and kindness to our body, soul and belongings
Amen!

  1. Take on yourself a good decision to add a Mitzvah to your daily schedule

IMPORTANT NOTE: Make sure all the above is done and read on the 23rd of Sivan (June 22nd 2022) during the day from dawn till sundown

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.
