Chizuk from Shlomo in Israel

In the last few weeks I have felt strong feelings of big events upcoming, and your blog has only confirmed that.[+/-] show/hide text

I am 24 years old, Dati Leumi, married, and living for the last years in Jerusalem. I felt the need in the last few weeks to strengthen both my deeds and my belief to help Am Israel (and myself through it).

I am a Levite, thus feeling strongly the need to serve HaShem and Am Israel through Torah. I am a regular working person, and in the last years (since finishing school) I have been praying mostly at home in the morning since it's hard for me to wake up early, or to manage both early work and Tefillah with a minyan.

However I always felt the need to put an effort on this issue...

In the last few weeks I decided to make it gradually occur, so I started to go Monday and Thursday mornings (Almost each time I’m called up to the Torah, as there are almost no Leviim at the Minyan). At the same time, my workplace started to organize for the surrounding offices a Minyan for Mincha, which I also started to join daily.

Furthermore, I started (After finishing at Shavuot a 1.5 year cycle of daily Misnhayot) exactly a month ago to join the Daf Yomi, as well as trying to study 3 chapters of Mishne Torah daily.

This morning when I arrived to shul, despite the difficulties at 6:45 a.m., was called up to the Torah reading. I concentrated extra hard during the Tefillah for the Zchut of Am Israel. During the morning hours after learning the daily Daf, I was hesitating if I should use the time I had to catch up on the pages I missed of Masechet Yoma (I was 8 pages behind).

Despite the dozens of various excuses that my yetzer hara was trying to convince me, I learned one page, then another, a total of 4 pages, thus closing half of the gap). During the learning, my mind kept being disturbed by temptations, get a drink, call someone, check on the news, etc… Despite all this I continued to learn, without a break…

When I finished, I looked at the news and saw that less than 1km from where I was, a suicide bomber was caught with a bag of explosives in Jerusalem, he was on Yaffo Street ready to explode his bombs.

I felt electricity through my body, when I realized that he was caught exactly during those minutes when I was at the peak of fighting the yetzer Hara.
B"H I felt that this "minor" effort from my side, caused for a "huge" miracle, and saved a lot of lives at the last second!!

A few hours later during Mincha at 1:30 p.m., after a "relatively" quiet morning in Northern Israel, dozens of rockets landed simultaneously on the whole North - Haifa, Tiberias, Tzfat, etc.

Miracously there were no casualties...

Again I could see clearly how holy words spoken by anyone of us can alter missiles to fall into the sea, or an empty field...

Dear Brothers and Sisters, you can all do the same. Please keep praying, and use every second to add Tfillot, learning, and Mitsvot, as it is needed 7/24.

As the Rav HaMekubal Shmueli Shlita said yesterday in his shiur (it can be watched at Hashem1.com), Nasrallah in Gematria is "Esav" -376. As we all know, the only solution to Esav is "Hakol Kol Yaakov"

Hizku Veimtzu!
