!Short Clips! Bechukosai – Together | Rabbi Dovid Orlofsky

Rabbi Dovid Orlofsky – Shares about the blessing in this recent weekly Torah portion (Bechukosai) of the ability of the Jews to increase the ratio of our effectiveness against our enemies. From 5 to 100 to 100 to 10,000. The Rabbi explains that this means going from 20% effective to 100% effective. How can we achieve this? By helping and bringing along our fellow Jews to join us in our journey we add to our individual and collective effectiveness against our enemies and towards our wholeness.

Connecting to the Shabbat Prayers – Rabbi Dovid Orlofsky

Rabbi Dovid Orlofsky – Shares about the difference between the “sameness” of the everyday prayers and even the Jewish Holiday prayers and the uniqueness of the Shabbat prayers. How we travel from the historical Shabbat of the entire Jewish people during the evening prayer to the very present Shabbat of the morning prayer to the Shabbat of the future (redemption) in the afternoon prayer. The journey makes Shabbat prayers uplifting and transformative every week we experience them.

!Short Clips! Shemini – The Job of a Jew | Rabbi Dovid Orlofsky

Rabbi Dovid Orlofsky – Shares about the dichotomy of being a Jew – joy and sorrow. This happened in this weeks parasha (Shemini) with the celebration of the opening of the Beis Hamikdash in the desert and the elevation of Aaron to be the Kohen Gadol along with his children to Kohanim. And, the opposite mourning of two of Aaron’s sons died. In modern times, the joy of Shabbat and Simchat Torah and the opposite terror of October 7th.

Pesach – Celebrating Slavery (Ep. 227) and 49 Days of Pesach (Ep. 228)

Rabbi Dovid Orlofsky – Starts a new series on how the days of Pesach parallel the other Jewish Holidays on the calendar using the ATBASH gematria (Jewish numerology). For example, the first day of Pesach is the first Hebrew letter Aleph which corresponds to the last Hebrew letter Taf. Aleph = Pesach, Taf = Tisha B’Av, which both happen to occur on the same day (this year Monday night). There are several other interesting stories and anecdotes strewn throughout as well, including Q&A at the end for current relevant topics (ie. how to exercise self-control).

!Short Clips! Pekudei – More to Learn | Rabbi Dovid Orlofsky

Rabbi Dovid Orlofsky – Why is the Mishkan here is the story of the book in the Torah of Shemot (Exodus)? We already left Egypt and received the Torah. The holiness of the getting the Torah travels with us throughout our journey until finally resulting the building on the permanent Beis Hamikdash in Jerusalem accompanying us on each stop along the way. Hashem’s presence from the liberation from Egypt and each step along the way are part of the same Exodus and that’s why the Mishkan is in this book of the Torah.

Getting Inspired With Rabbi Dovid Orlofsky (Ep. 224)

Rabbi Dovid Orlofsky – Shares about how not only how to get inspired but also why we need to get inspired. It is the engine that connects us to Hashem regardless of level of religious observance. Without inspiration we began to act like it discusses in the Talmud about cows that chew and chew and chew because that’s what they do. Escape the rote and start to devote!

At the end of the video, Rabbi Orlofsky also had some very interesting and informative answers to the following questions in the Rabbi’s Q&A:

How can I balance my Ruchnius and Gashmuis (my material needs versus my spiritual needs)?

Does Hashem punish?

What happens when I do an Aveira (sin)?

!Shabbat Shalom – Short Clips! Mishpatim – Living Intentionally | Rabbi Dovid Orlofsky
