Provision

Maybe He saw the vision He had for us and all it takes from us is an ear - as in, a parent saying to one of his children, "Would you run and get this for me," and of course the child goes. Why? Not because he knows what he is doing but because he was asked; and because he trusts. And he knows that upon returning to his father what his father had asked for he would enter his father's joy. G-d is kind of like that, listen to me and I will show you the plan I have for you and it is far greater than anything you might have hoped for.

Moëd tob umborach!

This video message was really inspiring and powerful. Thanks for this and other efforts, Mr. Harary and Aish. I'm gonna try this in my life perhaps :) 'Hag Samea'h

Addressing The Wider Jewish Community

I have noted that most of the chissuk videos/discussions target picture book classic young Jewish families. The problem here is that there are a vast number of Jewish broken homes. Many families face numerous issues with seperated spouses, children/teenagers with various issues, etc...
In this day & age you would do well to address these types of disparate families/singles and children with some answers & giving chizuk where it is truly needed.
The issues we face during wars & anti-semitism are at least an obvious enemy which draws us together in unity. Unfortunately the problems & disunity we face within the community are far more difficult & damaging.

Unfortunately our ancestors didn't get that message and wandered in the Sinai for 40 years. We can learn from their exodus and all the other events in our long history and make a better present and future for ourselves and our children and grandchildren. Thank you very much for this Passover message. I hope everyone enjoys a happy Passover.
