As Tishrei Departs


What new practice or mitzva did you take upon yourself during Tishrei? How do you plan to make 5771 any different than the year before?

Reader: I resolved to shlep myself out to minyan for Maariv one more time a week than I normally do.

I resolved to get married.

A Suede Hosid: That is Hashem's hands. What are YOU doing new in order to make yourself worthy of this?

I decided to get to minyan in the mornings 5 minutes earlier, so I don't rush putting on my tefillin.

Also, we started reading from R Zelig Pliskin's book THE POWER OF WORDS at each Shabbos meal, since my kids have the impression that words are good weapons.

I am working on not taking things so personally, which I suppose is really about many things.

I'm trying to do the Kitzur Likutey Moharan day by day, according to the schedule printed inside, and to try and life more faithfully to the teachings of Rebbenu Nachman.

ASJ what's the background to your commitment, do you live very far from the shul?

No. I live very close and hence I don't ever have a good excuse to be lazy.

I've been trying to keep away from Jewish blogs and web sites that consistently put out religiously objectionable ideas because of an agenda. Sending comments to them does no good.
