Join me as I review and provide overviews of Sefarim & Books I find of interest.
Nesivos Shalom – Michtavei Kodesh
The Nesivos Shalom is a sefer which enjoys enormous popularity in every nook and cranny of the Orthodox world. The Slonimer Rebbe zt”l seems to have found the perfect mix of passionate and inspiring Chassidus, and Mussar that speaks directly to the individual. As a seasoned leader, he understood people with all their contemporary faults and is not afraid to directly confront issues of failure, lack of connectedness, depression, etc., incorporating even the negatives into a roadmap that leads inevitably to a higher place for the person seeking it.Torah.org
In this newly released Sefer, we are given a glimpse at the Slonimer Rebbe’s correspondence with people all over the globe on a variety of personal and communal issues. There are over 300 letters ranging from thoughts on the Six Day war to offering encouragement to a Chassid going thru a tough time. There is a section of letters where he describes his holocaust experiences as well as a section on letters he sent to the chassidus before each Yom Tov.
Read and be inspired.

Amongst the many piyutim included in the Selichos, is the piyut of Machnisei Rachamim. Machnisei Rachamim is a piyut that is said at the end of Selichos, asking the Malachim to please bring our supplications and cries before Hashem. מכניסי רחמים הכניסו רחמינו לפני בעל הרחמים משמיעי תפלה השמיעו תפלתנו לפני שומע תפלה משמיעי צעקה השמיעו צעקתנו לפני שומע צעקה מכניסי דמעה הכניסו דמעותינו לפני מלך מתרצה בדמעות השתדלו והרבו תחינה ובקשה לפני מלך רם ונש. הזכירו לפניו השמיעו לפניו… Read more Continue reading Do We Need Protekzia to Reach G-D?
