Shabbat is more than a day of refraining from worldly activity.

When experienced to its spiritual fullest, its holiness enlightens all other days of the week.

We invite you to enhance your Shabbat with these words of Torah.

The Self Made Man

The Self Made Man

Sinclair, Rabbi Yaakov Asher
July 8, 2021

“For every thousand soldiers who went out for the Jewish people, another thousand stayed behind in Eretz Yisrael and prayed for… each soldier at the front…


You might think that this was to give those soldiers… added protection. The real reason was that those at the front should not be under any illusion as to where their success was coming from.


It wasn’t by the strength or the might of their right hand that they were victorious in battle. Rather, their success, like all success, comes from Hashem, the maker of the self-made man.”
