Q:

What's the reason for the minhag to eat matzoh balls on Pesach?

A:

This man here is asking why we eat matzoh kneidelech on Pesach. Well, first of all, not everybody eats it, so I'm not speaking for everybody. But as far as those who do, what's the reason for eating it? Because it tastes good.

What's the benefit of lighting a candle for a person's yartzeit?

When someone is nifter and candles are lit for that person, it is a kavod for the meis. And that's because a candle is a beautiful symbol. A flame is a beautiful thing, and even today it's hard to explain exactly how it works. The physical materials - the wick, the wax, the oil - turn into light. That symbolizes the neshama that was enclosed in a guf and is now only neshama. It's now ohr. Like the ohr of the candle that has been transformed from physical materials into light, the guf has been transformed into neshama. And the neshama is now ohr, shining in Olam Habah. And when we light the candle and show that we recognize this truth, it gives nachas to the neshama.

When someone passes away, that person doesn't stop existing. The neshama is real and it is existing in Olam Habah. And the neshama can still feel and recognize these things. So when the nifter is honored by the family when they light a yartzeit candle, it is a nachas ru'ach for the neshama. The symbol of the light that comes from the wax and the wick is an important thing. And ohr is a tremendous thing. Not only the sunlight. But even artificial light is such a gift! Every Motzei Shabbos we make a special bracha on artificial ohr. Borei me'orei ha'aish. A bracha on fire, on electric light, on other lights. It's a great blessing to have artificial light. And therefore, the light of the candle is a beautiful symbol. It's a symbol for the neshama that has turned from gashmi'us into ruchni'us. And the neshama in the next world is happy that people are lighting the candle and recognizing the truth of the Next World. It's a nachas ru'ach for the neshama.

ON HARAV MILLER’S YAHRZEIT:
Today is the eighteenth Yahrzeit of the legendary and incomparable HaRav Avigdor Miller, Z’tl, so much of whose life was dedicated to helping the lives of others become accomplished and complete. We provide below three separate examples of his teachings on personal brachos and tefillos, as originally brought by Rabbi Simcha Bunim Cohen, Shlita in Rabbi Avigdor Miller Speaks (Volume 1, pp. 227, 234--Artscroll), and as highlighted in the masterful work Praying With Fire 2 by Rabbi Heshy Kleinman, Shlita (p.172-3, p.186--Artscroll).



1.When a customer walks in, say a quick Tefillah that the customer should buy your merchandise and pay the right price and not complain…HaKadosh Baruch Hu will say: “I see you trusting in Me, as the Pasuk states “Blessed is the man who puts his trust in Hashem, and, therefore, Hashem will reward him by becoming his trust.”



If you are going to see a customer [at his place of business], before you walk in say “Yehi Ratzon Milefanecha She’tatzlicheni—Hashem, please make me successful!



Hakhel Note: Of course, one should analogize to his everyday situations relating to projects, meeting with superiors at work, shopping, eating Kosher, dating,…everything in life!



2. Even where Tefillas HaDerech is not required, if you are starting up your car, ask Hashem without making a bracha for safety and everything else you need on the way… “Believe me—in town you need a lot of help from Hashem!”



3. “Good Morning” is not merely a trite phrase or pleasantry. Good morning means that they should have a good breakfast, that they should earn a good living, no colds today, no trouble in business. Good Morning means everything!



Hakhel Note: Imagine the meaning and power of a sincere “Have a Good Day!”

Endless Chasdei Hashem


Rabbi Miller took nothing for granted — not the smallest detail, nor the most common phenomena. Once as he ascended the stairs of his apartment, unaware that someone was behind him, he was heard saying, “Thank You, Hashem, for the banister.” He thanked Hashem for the carpet on the steps, for the lining in his jacket, for his pockets. He recalled how his rebbi pointed out the chessed that buttonholes were reinforced. He appreciated the tip of his shoelace, enabling him to push it through the hole.


A grandchild was once in the hospital with him. In the middle of the night, thinking his grandson was sleeping on the chair next to him, he got up for some water. He made a careful berachah, took a sip and then said to his Best Friend, “Ich dank eich — I thank You.”


With enthusiasm and pleasure he would talk about the gratitude he had for a glass of water — what he called an “elixir of life!” Years before, Macy’s sold bottled New York City tap water for two dollars for tourists. Someone purchased one for him and he kept it at his feet by his seat in the shul, to remind him that every glass of water — even New York City tap water — had monetary value.

Every time Rabbi Miller saw a full cupboard or refrigerator, he was filled with gratitude and reflected on “Uv’sava kilkaltanu — In times of satiation it is You Who is providing.”

Rabbi Miller once picked up an apple from his table, which often had some fruit on it, and took a deep breath. His grandson, who was watching him unobserved, overheard him saying in Yiddish: “Ay, Father in Heaven, You bothered Yourself to make this magnificent fruit. Its color is so beautiful, a deep tantalizing red.” He paused a moment to take in the color, then continued: “And You even added a smell so avory, a temptingly delicious aroma with which it is perfumed.” He paused to relish the smell. “And You did all this for me. Then You put in so much preparation in order to get it to me. You also gave me eyes, hands, teeth and a tongue, and they all benefit from this fruit. You did this all with Your kindness because You love me. And I love You so much for this …. How can I begin to thank You for all this?”

He then proceeded to make a slow berachah. After chewing slowly, he exclaimed, “Ay, Father in Heaven, exactly how we have spoken, so it is, indeed a delicious gift ….”

Rabbi Miller often related the story of the Lomzer mashgiach who saw an unhappy bachur, went over to him, took him by the lapels and began shouting, wishing him a hearty mazel tov and telling him how lucky he was and how many people would envy him. The bachur had no idea what was going on. The mashgiach said to the downtrodden bachur, “Mazel tov! You are alive!”

On both nights of Rosh Hashanah before Maariv, he would give a shiur in Rambam, Hilchos Teshuvah. The second night he would start the shiur by saying, “First of all, we have to thank Hashem for the gift of a day in the new year.” Once, he heard someone chuckle. He looked up and said, “I am very serious. Everybody say now: ‘Thank You, Hashem, for the gift of a day in the new year.’”

He was always excited about the gift of life; he never took it for granted. When he would come to the words in Shemoneh Esrei, “V’al nishmoseinu hap’kudos lach — And for our souls that are deposited with You,” people nearby could hear him stop and take a full breath. He often said, “It is a picture perfect day — and the best part is that we are still part of the picture.”

He described taking a walk during the day as “bathing in the golden rays of sunlight.” Taking in a deep breath was drinking the “cocktail” of delicious fresh air, and it would get him “intoxicated with love of Hashem.”

Once, while walking with a talmid, he kept talking about something extraordinary they were soon going to have. “Soon we will have a very special treat.” Shortly after, he again said, “It will be really special.” The bachur could not imagine what Rabbi Miller was talking about … until they turned a corner and he finally stopped at a quiet spot and said excitedly, “Now!” He proceeded to take in a very deep breath, and then instructed the bachur to inhale a full cup of another thing he referred to as an “elixir of life” — fresh air!

Complaining was simply not in his dictionary. “When it is hot,” he would say, “think that Hashem is cooking apples for you and providing free heat, and in the winter He is providing free air-conditioning. But never make a complaint.”

Someone once gave him a ride in a car that had been baking in the sun of a heat wave for hours. The driver apologized that the air conditioner was broken. Rabbi Miller said, “Mahn dichar shmeih? (Who even mentioned it?)” The issue had never even occurred to him. His joy at everyday life was so overwhelming that there was no room for complaining. Walking in the scorching sun during a heat wave a grandson overheard him saying numerous times, “Thank you, Hashem, for the sweet sun. I love You for this wonderful gift.”

When he was asked for the purpose of humidity and heat, he replied:
I’ll answer that by giving you an analogy. Here is a man who comes home and he has to go through the kitchen in order to go to the bathroom. And he tells his wife, “What? In this hot weather you’re cooking? It’s so hot in here!” So she says, “Yes, dear, I’ll turn off the stove,” and she does. When he comes out he says, “Is supper ready?” And she says, “Sorry, not tonight.”

So, too, in September all the ripe red apples are out on the stands. How does an apple become red, juicy and sweet? It’s only because Hakadosh Baruch Hu turns on the heat. The summer is the kitchen that ripens these delicious fruits that we are going to eat all winter. Therefore, are we going to complain because of the good times that are waiting for us? During a prolonged heat wave he announced, “Anyone who does not complain, ‘Oy vey, how hot it is,’ will merit Olam Haba.”

How can a person stimulate love of Hashem?

There is a man walking in the street, and there is a big noise of traffic so nobody can hear what he's saying. He opens up his mouth and says, "I love you Hashem!"

That the wisest thing you can do. It's a mitzvas asei min haTorah, and don't think it's not true. Once you open your mouth and say it, your thoughts follow your words. A certain amount of ahava is generated by saying it.

What comes between a Jew and Hashem?

We must turn our backs to the philosophies of the nations, as our people have always done. The darkness created by them, and by the misguided of Israel who imitate them, prevents the seeker from beginning his ascent. They are a wall between us and Hashem; they and the Jewish secularists prevent the Jewish masses from approaching the Truth.

How should we think about Hashem?

Although most people think about Hashem and are willing to say that He is all-knowing and all-wise, they do not put a lot of thought into it. But when we study Shaar Habechinah (The Gate of Examination) and we begin to realize how everything in the world is made with wisdom and with benevolence, the mind gains a picture of Hashem as a great Father and a great Benefactor.

Where do we find true wisdom?

Gedola deah, how great it is to have deah (wisdom)! "Dah kanisa mah chaser (If you have that, what don't you have)? Dah chasarta mah kanisa (If you don't have this, what do you have)?" That's everything! Everything in the world is teaching deah. And deah means first and foremost "L'daas es Hashem (to know about Hashem).
