Activating Will in Our Avodat Hashem - Mrs. Devorah Yaffa Singer

This tele-shiur was given as part of a six part series just before Rosh Hashana to share thoughts and practical tools to prepare for the birthday of Free Will.  Mrs. Singer teaches her students an extemely powerful tool to learn how to plug into their atomic power plant they carry inside of themselves called Ratzon – Will.  This exercise can and should be done every day to help us get in touch with our deepest desires and with Hashem’s help, see them fulfilled.

The Power of Speech in Tefillah - Rabbi Tzadok Cable

This shiur is guaranteed to change the way you relate to Tefillah.  As the Nefesh HaChaim explains, we are Hashem’s soldiers in prayer.  If we really grasped the full impact our prayers have to effect the upper and lower worlds, we would pray entirely differently.

Rabbi Zecharia Wallerstein -

Rabbi Zecharia Wallerstein states very poignantly in a shiur he gave during Parshat Yisro in 2009 that only those Jews who hold on tight to their Emunah and trust in Hashem during these times of turbulence and uncertainty will merit to witness the unfolding of history and be a part of the climactic finale of the final redemption.

Question of the Ages: How Much Hishtadlus vs. How Much Bitachon? - Rabbi Avrohom M. Alter, Yeshivat Migdal Torah, Chicago, IL

When is 'enough' enough? When is enough ... really 'too much'? Haven't we all been perplexed by this question? Hishtadlus vs. Bitachon - how much is proper?  In matters of Shiduchim, Parnasah, Yeshuos, etc. Is it true that G-d only helps those who "help themselves"?  What does Hashem mean when He promises: "I will bless all that you do"?  Must we actually "do"?  And if we must, how much must we "do"?  Is there a minimum Hishtadlus?  Is there a maximum that we may we do?  When is 'enough' Hishtadlus really 'too much' Hishtadlus?  To answer these and other questions on how to understand the delicate balance between Bitachon and Histadlut, click here to download.

 

 


Dedicated Heart: The Key to Success - Rabbi Avrohom M. Alter, Yeshiva Migdal Torah, Chicago, IL.

I’d like to share with you my favorite Torah shiur of all time. LISTEN  to Rabbi Alter as he exquisitely explains the depth of what was required by the Jewish people to draw down the Shechina to dwell amongst them, and the lessons we can learn as to how to make our homes and our hearts a Mishkan for HaKadosh Baruch Hu.  When we put forth our hearts and our full will into doing Hashem’s will, then we are able to merit tremendous siyata d’shmaya.

Jeanne Diamond Sings Avinu Malkeinu - Jeanne Diamond

An accomplished soloist for the Chicago Lyric Opera for 10 seasons, Mrs. Diamond was “discovered” by her one-day-to-be husband while singing the solo for their High School Confirmation class. Proof positive that “Kol Isha” really does make an impact, but in this case it’s a good thing – otherwise, I may never have been born! 

Listen to this inspiring version of Avinu Malkeinu just recorded in my living room a couple weeks by my 85 year old mother. Way to go Mom!!! (I recommend turning down the volume on your computer for this one.)

To order Mrs. Diamond’s angelic collection of operatic and cantorial music, email me at: devorahyaffa@g-ddirecttorah.com .
