Jobless האט געשריבן:רבותי איך דארף ערנסטע חיזוק.
איך האב היינו אריינגעגעבן מיינע תפילון צ'י בודק זיין.
אין יא דעי פאון קאלל פין וואס קיינער ויל נישט הערן איז געקימען. אינגערמאן טייערע דיין תפילון איז פסול.
חברה סאיז נישט קיין געלעכטער. איך גיי ארום אן א קאפ.
ווי אזוי בין איך זיך מחזק. ? וויסענדיג אז איך נישט געלייגט כשרע תפילון פאר יארען.
let me tell you a story that Reb Meilech Biederman told me 2 years ago.
During World war 2, there was someone that, as everyone else, was going through hard and deadly situations. He wasn't keeping Yiddishkeit before, so he made a Kabalah/Promise that if hashem sees him out of there alive, he will begin putting tefilin. Everyone around him was shot are died from hunger etc, but somehow he always survived.
He went on that way for several years.he was facing death a fee times, but at the end he always made it.
Upon completion of the war, he had am interesting episode.
He survived ince again, but this time without his left hand. The one he was supposed to put region on.
He was confused and devastated. he couldn't understand what hesham did to him. he was saved from death so many times, but hesham couldn't save his hand in the last day?
He went in to his Rav (Think chazen ish. he told me a name..) And shared his concern. listen to his answer, it's worth a million dollars.
He said as following,
"If hesham would save your hand, you would mistakenly think that hesham really needs your tefillin. that's why he made sure that your hand disappears.... he wanted to show you that what he needs is your 'Heart", and not the teffilin"
The message is terrifying.
It gave me a huge does of chizuk.
It's not whay you do, it's how you do it.
