Staying Optimistic - Ki Sisa



Approximately six years ago, I started writing a Dvar Torah. With the help of my friends, family, and most importantly Hashem, I was able to write 274 articles. I want to take this opportunity and thank all of you who enable me to write by reading my weekly messages. The rebbe says that if you know Aleph, you should teach Aleph. If you get inspired, continue the chain by inspiring someone else. Let's keep making a difference in the world and bring Moshiach right now.


In this week's parsha, many Yidden miscalculated when Moshe would return from Har Sinai. They were led to believe that Moshe wouldn't return, so they lost faith. Over the years, I always questioned why the Yidden didn't just wait a little longer. Moshe could have returned and the golden calf would have been avoided. Sometimes, when a situation doesn't look very optimistic, the easiest solution is to give up. However, if we stay optimistic and continue working hard, we will be able to break through the negative barriers and see that the situation was positive all along.


Over the past few years, I have had my fair share of difficult weeks. Many times, I sit for hours thinking about what I could write that might help someone better serve Hashem. At times, the easiest solution is to throw in the towel and give up. However, if I would give up, we would not be in the same position that we are today. I want to invite you to say lchaim with me this coming Monday as we celebrate the marriage of Shmuel Grossman and the sixth year anniversary of this Dvar Torah. Thank you Shmuel for all the work that you have put in over the years. Let's all join together by taking on an additional mitzvah to ensure that we will all be dancing and saying lchaim in Yerushaliam with the coming of Moshiach!


Good Shabbos

All the Best

The road trip through life!

Over the past two years, I have grown to appreciate taking long road trips. Last weekend, I had a dream that someone paid me to drive them from Florida to Toronto. Along the way, we were able to stop
