    The nais of purim was eclipsed by natural occurences

    And only the Megilla itself connects the dots. 

    Given that Iran was developing nuclear weapons, and had a goal to wipe out Israel, who can say that it wasn't another seemingly series of  natural occurrences, the unlikely real estate mogul becoming president, and then backing out of the Iran deal, etc that saved Israel when some writer will write the whole story and connect the dots.  Ditto for Pearl Harbor and so many other series of natural events that cover the nisim?

    Hashem loves the yidden in golus like the groom loves

    His kalla even if she's in a tannery and smells bad.

    But...the groom loves the Kalla despite the smell. He didn't send her to the tannery. 

    Hashem sent, or allowed, us to go into golus.

    Tannery- stench and Avoida

    How can we connect the mashal in the zohar with the description of Avoidas hasehm with "eebud oirois" , vavadtem es havaya eloikeichem to make havaya eloikeichem

    The outcome of Purim was positive, a success. If the outcome is not positive, how is HaShem's presence to be interpreted?

    Diffrence between a person who suffers and a person who sins...how to interpret HaShem's involvement?

    Hi Rabbi Jacobson. 

    Thank you for such life changing classes. 

    Our daughter suffers from social anxiety and bullying goes around her. 

    Is very painful to see her suffering and we feel frustrated and many times disappointed to people who make insensitive comments. 

    Can the Rabbi please give us chizuk?

    Would be very much appreciated!

    Thank you!

    Teshuvos Harashba


    Teshuva 93 

    A Havtacha that chet will never cause the day of purim to be batel. According to the Mammar it is understandable as this is to show the tremendous love, even if we will be in the matzav of chet.

    Yom kipppur as well to show the love that hashem is mechaper our averos.

    רב נחמן אמר קרייתה זו היא הלילא


    pshat is based on the maamar above

    Now we don't have to say

    Psalms 113

    מִ֭י כַּיהוָ֣ה אֱלֹהֵ֑ינוּ הַֽמַּגְבִּיהִ֥י לָשָֽׁבֶת׃ הַֽמַּשְׁפִּילִ֥י לִרְא֑וֹת בַּשָּׁמַ֥יִם וּבָאָֽרֶץ׃ מְקִֽימִ֣י מֵעָפָ֣ר דָּ֑ל מֵֽ֝אַשְׁפֹּ֗ת יָרִ֥ים אֶבְיֽוֹן׃ לְהוֹשִׁיבִ֥י עִם־נְדִיבִ֑ים עִ֝֗ם נְדִיבֵ֥י עַמּֽוֹ׃ מֽוֹשִׁיבִ֨י ׀ עֲקֶ֬רֶת הַבַּ֗יִת אֵֽם־הַבָּנִ֥ים שְׂמֵחָ֗ה הַֽלְלוּ־יָֽהּ׃
