Bitachon - Trust in God...

by Rabbi Meir Ben Abu

Bitachon doesn't mean blithely believing that everything will be honky dory. It doesn't mean trusting that I can walk through a dangerous neighborhood at night and I won't get mugged. It doesn't mean trusting that no matter how fast I drive to that appointment, I won't get into an accident. This is not trust -- this is wishful thinking. It has everything to do with our desire for ease and comfort and nothing to do with trust in God.

Kitzur Shulchan Aruch Series

by Rabbi Dovid Horowitz שליט׳א

Part 51 - The Laws of Shabbat 2:

A Non Jew Who Does Work For A Jew On Shabbos.

Since 1864, Rabbi Shlomo Ganzfried's Kitzur Shulchan Aruch has been one of the world's most widely used Halachic guides for daily Jewish living. No work of Halachah has been reprinted so many times in so many countries. The Kitzur Shulchan Aruch is the definitive text for studying all of the basic Jewish laws that have been in regular practice for centuries.

From the second night of Passover until the day before the holiday of Shavuot, the Jewish people engage in an unique mitzvah called Sefirat HaOmer (counting of the Omer). The Torah commands us that during this time each year we count seven complete weeks, for a total of 49 days. At the end of the seven-week period we celebrate Shavuot, which means "weeks."
