What Does The Mezuzah Tell You?

The Jew is unlike all the nations of the world; he has something to do at all times. The mezuzah is like the yeshiva mashgiach asking the boys going out the door, "Where are you going?"

The mezuzah is asking us, "Where are you going?" You have to be mindful of your function as a student of Torah because you are one of the members of the mamleches kohanim, the nations of priests.

Why did they (the Jews) deserve at the time of Purim, such a threat to their lives?

The Gemara says, mipnei sh'nehenu m'seudoso shel Achashveirosh, because they 'enjoyed' his banquet. Now, it doesn't say because they 'went' to the banquet, the banquet they had to attend because they had to demonstrate that they were patriots, but it should have been as kofoh sheid; they were forced to go. But some of them went with a certain amount of exhilaration. We are also citizens, we are also given recognition, we are also somebody. As they sat at the table some of them were happy that they were able to mingle with the gentiles.

So Hakadosh Baruch Hu said, "You, the Chosen people, are forgetting your aristocracy, and you sink so low to be honored in the presence of other nations? I'll have to remind you who the other nations are." And so, when the proclamation of Haman went out to the one hundred twenty seven medinos, and the Jews walking down the street saw the nations gathering around the bulletin boards, and they were reading with relish, on a certain day there will permission given for the great prank to begin, for the great fun to begin! And the goyim were licking their chops in anticipation, and the Jew was walking by and the goy was measuring him, this is a fat one, we'll get him when the day comes. So the Jew began to understand who his nice neighbors were, like in Lithuania, or in Latvia, or anywhere else.

The neighbors with whom you lived with for generations, and seemed so nice, they were the ones who turned you over to the Nazis; they were the ones. Priests turned over Jews to the Nazis. The Rov of Grosvardien relates that his brother-in-law was trying to escape from the ghetto, so a Hungarian priest seized him by the arm and handed him over to the Nazis for execution. How was it that bishop Brizgys in Lithuania, he praised the Nazis for what they were doing? Certainly, it was for the purpose of letting us know who our nice neighbors are.

Therefore when they were proud and happy to associate with the umos haolam, Hakadosh Baruch Hu gave them a taste of what the umos haolam really are.

What's the difference between a Nazi who kills a Jew, and a Jew who kills an Amaleki?

I want you to hear the lomdus of this question. Listen to me: When a Nazi kills a Jew, chalilah, does he have a Torah that's telling him he should kill Jews?! First of all, the Nazis were not loyal Christians. And even the loyal Christians, they have no place where it says that they should kill Jews. Even the worst Pope, never said you should kill Jews. They insult Jews, they speak all kinds of calumnies and lies against Jews, but there was a principle in the church, never to kill Jews. Therefore, if a Christian kills a Jew, he is going against the principles of his church. So why did he do it? He did it because he's a shofech damim, a murderer. It has nothing to do with his god, his scriptures. He's just a plain murderer.

There's no reason why a Nazi had to kill a Jew. Not the slightest reason at all. The fact that they allowed Hitler to inflame them against the Jews - any criminal who allows himself to be inflamed against a person who is innocent, deserves his punishment. Therefore, all the Nazis are in Gehenim right now. They're burning and they're getting what they deserve to get.

If a Jew kills an Amaleki - today we don't know, but in the olden days when a Navi said, "This is Amalek. Lech v’hakisu es Amalek - "Go and destroy him," - the Jew didn't want to do it. You see how reluctant Shaul was. When Shaul, according to the command of Shmuel, went to destroy Amalek it says Vayorev baNachal. It means that he fought them in the valley. But Chazal tell us another meaning as well. Vayorev baNachal means that he quarreled with Hashem about the nachal, about the stream. Vayorev al iskei Nachal. He quarreled with Hakodosh Boruch Hu and said: uma nefesh achas omru Torah huvo eglah arufah, kol nafeshos halolu al achas kamoh v’kamoh. The Torah says that you have to take the eglah arufah down to the down to the nachal, the stream, to kill the calf, all because they found one man who was murdered. You don't know who killed him, and so for that one nefesh we make this whole procedure in the nachal. "And now," said Shaul, "You want me to go and kill all the Amalekim?!" So Vayorev baNachal, here he quarreled with Hashem al iskei Nachal.

Now, it doesn't mean that he actually quarreled with Hashem. He didn't quarrel with Hashem. It means that in the pnimiyus, the inside of his heart, he had sfeikos, he had doubts - why should he kill people?! He went and he did it, because he was obeying the Navi, but it wasn't easy for him.

Our forefathers, when they came into Eretz Canaan, and they were told they had to destroy people, it was very difficult for them to do it. And many didn't. They are kindhearted people. But those Jews who did it, were obeying the word of Hashem. You can't help it, it's the word of Hashem. And you're going to have to follow His command. So how can you compare somebody who is a shofech damim, a Nazi who is a bloodthirsty man, to to somebody who reluctantly does a mitzvah. He can't help himself, because Hakodosh Boruch Hu has commanded him.

In this world, you can't be happy because the urge doesn't let you rest. "Mi sheyesh loi moneh, roitzeh mosayim," if you make your million dollars, you want two million.

Everything in this world is a moshol for Olam Haba. Even when the chosson is under the chuppa and takes a peek at his kallah's beautiful face, he should know that the emotion that is stirred within is a feeling of Olam Haba. Our instinct is to hope for the infinite, which you won't find in this world, and therefore no happiness in this world will ever truly quiet the longing in a man's heart.

We say "zichrono li'vracha" or "zeicher tzadik li'vrocho" for a tzadik. Why don't we say on a rasha "shem risha'im yirkav" - the name of the resha'im should rot?

Certainly, you should say it. And if you don't say it you're a liberal. If it's a real rasha, certainly you say it. You can say "yemach shemo". And if he's still alive you can give him a bracha and say "afrah li'pumei" - "May dirt enter his mouth." We're wishing upon him that dirt should come into his mouth, in the grave, as soon as possible. Why not? It's a mitzvah! Shem Risha'im Yirkav! The name of the rasha should rot away! We are not ashamed to stand up for our principles.

The word "hate" is despised by the New York Times, by the liberals. But certainly it's a mitzvah to hate resha'im. Don't they hate the good Jews?! They hate religious Jews. Certainly they do. And therefore we have a right, and it's our duty, to show that we are opposed to resha'im, and to show that we know that Hashem hates the resha'im. No question about it. In the Tanach it teaches us again and again the foundation principle that v’ohav es Yaakov v’es Eisav soneisi. Hashem said that! He said, "I love Yaakov and I hate Eisav." So what's the question? And therefore, if you're speaking about a rasha and you want to add a postscript such as "afrah li'pumei", I'll say tuvoi aleichem bracha - you should be blessed for saying that. Don't be ashamed.

Don't we have a responsibility to daven for resha'im that they should do teshuva? So why do we say "V'lamalshinim" three times a day, and pray for the demise of the wicked?

Listen. Here is a Jewish apikoros running after you with a club. He wants to hit you with a club. So you're asking me if you should daven to Hashem that he should do teshuva?! Maybe. You have no time, however. In the meantime, he should drop dead. That's what you want.

That's why we say m'heirah three times in the bracha of "V'lamalshinim" - m'heirah, m'heirah, miheirah! In no tefillah do we find that it says mi'heirah as much as in that brachah. Because the apikorsim are a danger. They are a threat to us. So although we want them to do teshuva, they'd better do teshuva fast. Otherwise they should get killed before they do anything bad to us. And the effect they have on our minds is very bad. Mikol mishmar netzor libecho - "More than anything you guard, you should guard your mind". (Mishlei 4:23) The apikorsim are wreaking havoc on our minds so they'd better do teshuva fast.

I passed a missionary on Kings Highway - a Jewish missionary sitting on Kings Highway giving out his literature. So I passed by him, and I said: "Ribono Shel Olam, he should do teshuva. Let him drop dead in the meantime."

Yaakov Avinu dealt with Eisav by sending him gift in order to appease him. Why in the time of Purim didn't we try to do our hishtadlus by trying to bribe Achashveirosh?

Achashveirosh was so wealthy that you couldn't bribe him. Haman offered him aseres alafim kikar kesef - Ten thousand silver talents. Now a kikar is a talent, and a talent is a big amount of silver. Ten thousand heavy talents! And Achashveirosh said: hakesef nosun loch - You take it. They couldn't bribe Achashveirosh - he was too wealthy.

So why didn't they follow the lesson of Yaakov and try to escape to another country?

In the ancient times you couldn't just escape. Nobody was able to move around freely the way you imagine today. Every country had its ruler.

Today in America, it's somewhat easier. You just get into a car and you travel. But in those days you couldn't just make a fast escape from the country. And therefore, they were caught in a trap with no way out.

How are we really supposed to see the neis of Purim if it was a neis nistar that was hidden in the natural events?

The answer is that sometimes a thing can be so startling that you just can't hide it. The American government is carrying out nuclear tests - nuclear explosions - and they're trying to hide it, but the scientists who have the proper instruments know what's going on, and they can tell you the details where it's going on and when. And your mind is your instrument. With a little bit of thought, you see the hand of Hashem.

You can't hide certain things. And when Haman, who was the king's favorite, is now not only not a favorite, but he's wiped out - and not only that, but the one who took his place was the least likely person, so even the biggest dumbbell could guess Who is to blame for all this. Yoshav baShamayim yischak - "The One who dwells in heaven is laughing." Hakodosh Boruch Hu was playing the joke and everybody could see it.

And therefore y’rou kol afsei oretz eis yeshuas Elokeinu - "All the ends of the world saw that it was a salvation from Hashem." It was very clear to everyone. Only that if you don't put your mind to it, you don't see anything and you'll remain the same person you were last Purim, and the year before that, and the year before that. But the wise man will use his Purim to see how Hashem is doing everything for the Am Yisroel, and he'll fall in love with Hashem. Because the person who is the same person on the day after Purim as he was before Purim, has wasted a tremendous opportunity.

Why do Lubavitcher chassidim consider themselves superior to Litvishe Jews?

First of all, Lubavitcher chassidim are mostly Litvishe Jews, you have to know. They are Litvishe Jews. And if they consider themselves superior, so we can ask the question, why do most non-Lubavitcher chassidim consider themselves superior to Lubavitcher chassidim? Or why do Breslover chassidim consider themselves superior to Lubavitcher chassidim? And why do Satmar chassidim consider themselves superior to Breslover chassidim?

The answer is, all idealists who follow certain systems, do it because they think it's the best system, otherwise they would follow a different system. It's common sense. Why should a man be a Lubavitcher if he thinks something is better? Why shouldn't a man be a non-Lubavitcher, if he thinks it's better than Lubavitch?

All idealists follow the system that they think is the best. Now who is going to be the arbitrator on who is the best? Moshiach will come, and in order to keep peace with everybody he will say you are all the best! And the truth is, they are all the best, but right now it's not the question if the Lubavitcher feels superior. Ask a Litvishe Yeshiva bachur, he feels superior! Ask a Satmar, he feels superior! And go into a Sephardic Yeshiva in Eretz Yisroel, in Porat Yosef, he's superior! So everybody is superior!

And the answer is that's how idealists have to be. No idealist will do something that he thinks is inferior.

Ad d'lo yada bein Arur Haman leBoruch Mordechai. I'll tell you one peirush. It means ad, v'lo ad bichlal. You drink up to the point of losing your da'as. You drink just enough. But not enough to lose your da'as. On Purim you have to have da'as. You have to have more da'as on Purim, not less.

Now, a little bit of da'as can be gained by drinking. A little bit. Oh yes. It's like an airplane that needs high octane gas to get up in the air. A little bit of alcohol helps your spirit go higher. Yes, a little bit of mashkeh. But too much alcohol will sink you. And therefore, there's no use in falling asleep in the middle of Purim like a drunken goy and then they have to call Hatzalah. On Purim you should be gaining da'as. If you utilize the day properly, it'll be a day of da'as. And you won't be gaining any da'as lying on the floor waiting for Hatzalah to come.

"All Your Deeds, Hashem"
SimchaMinute by Rabbi Avigdor Miller

"Yoducha Hashem kol maasecha — Hashem, all of your deeds praise you." (Ashrei)

Everything in nature has that purpose. There's nothing in nature that’s not infinitely full of design...

However, when it says kol maasecha, he includes something else. All your deeds; it means whatever happens in the world; in history of nations, or in the career of individuals. Everything that took place in your life is for the purpose of letting you know there's a creator.

How did Haman appear?

“And it was in the days of Achashverosh...” (Megilas Esther)

The “And” informs us that this was a result of events that preceded it. It just did not happen that suddenly there was a Haman; it was connected to past events. Without understanding that, we don’t begin to be a Jew. A Jew, first and foremost, believes that Hashem is in control of the world.

If there are nuclear weapons, it’s because of us. As Rashi explains, “Kdei l'yoram” to make us afraid of Hashem.

If a nation like India is able to utilize nuclear weapons, or if an evil man like the ruler of Iraq, and like the people in Iran have nuclear weapons, it causes us to be afraid of Hashem. It’s a very important achievement, and it’s only for us: so that we should be afraid of Hashem.

The wicked are with us for our benefit. This is the intention of the dictum: "G-d made one thing opposite another. He created the righteous and he created the wicked."

In every generation He saw which righteous men would live at that time, and He put into that generation certain evil-doers who were suited to the function of imparting perfection to the righteous ones.

What do we learn from Haman's downfall?

On the night when Mordechai rose, Haman had his fall. Now it could have been that Mordechai could have been honored by the king, and Haman would have remained also in the king’s good favor.

No: Hashem wanted to demonstrate that never the twain can meet. We cannot be together with them, because that is impossible for the plan of our history.

What should the matzah remind us of?

At the Seder, as you take a piece of matzah and you eat it as a memorial to the korban Pesach (sacrifice), what should you have in mind? That we are the eternal people and nobody else.

Monarchs and tyrants like Achashveirosh and Haman can do their best to destroy us, but am Yisrael eventually is going to survive and to step upon their graves.

אֶשְׂבְּעָה בְהָקִיץ תְּמוּנָתֶךָ

אֲנִי בְּצֶדֶק אֶחֱזֶה פָנֶיךָ אֶשְׂבְּעָה בְהָקִיץ תְּמוּנָתֶךָ (תהלים י"ז ט"ו)
What Is A Powerful Way To Start Our Day?

We hope when we wake up (in the World to Come), we'll be gazing in happiness at the face of Hashem. "Esbahoh b'hokitz temunosecho" - we pray, "I should be sated when I wake up Your splendor of Your Image."

We can practice that. Every morning when you wake up, open your eyes, say, "Modeh ani l'fanecha - I thank You Hashem!" You opened the eyes in the morning, and you do.

עַל כֵּן יֹאמְרוּ הַמֹּשְׁלִים בֹּאוּ חֶשְׁבּוֹן (במדבר כ"א כ"ז)
What Makes You Great?

"Al kein yomru hamoshlim bo'u cheshbon."

Moshlim means those who control themselves, those who rule over themselves. These are men of virtue. A great man is one who has learned to be in control, he doesn't do anything unless he consults his wisdom, his reason. They are the moshlim and they say "bo'u cheshbon" come to cheshbon. Come to reckoning, come to a career where you're going to consider what you're doing all the days of your life.

כִּי הֶהָרִים יָמוּשׁוּ וְהַגְּבָעוֹת תְּמוּטֶינָה וְחַסְדִּי מֵאִתֵּךְ לֹא יָמוּש וּבְרִית שְׁלוֹמִי לֹא תָמוּט אָמַר מְרַחֲמֵךְ ה' (ישעי' נ"ד י')
Why Did Hashem Give You So Many Mitzvos?

Other nations have disappeared, others will disappear but the am Hashem will remain forever. like it says openly again and again in the words of the prophets; "Just as the mountains are eternal," or even more, "the mountains will depart, by My love of you will never come to an end," says Hashem.

Our gratitude to Hashem is much greater than that of non-Jews, and that's why we do mitzvos.
