Bringing Merit to the Public

A Healthy Dose of Zikuy Harabim

A Healthy Dose of Zikuy Harabim

I once visited my family doctor, Dr. Bismuth, for routine tests which I do every so often. Then I returned to my regular busy schedule of receiving people, delivering mussar lectures to the yeshiva students, and various other activities connected with the public needs. I summarily forgot about the previous tests.

But when I was in the thick of receiving people that very afternoon, my secretary, R’ Yitzchak Marciano, came in and informed me that the results were not good, and I must report immediately to the hospital. I phoned my doctor, expecting him to assure me that there was no need to hurry. Imagine my chagrin at hearing my doctor, who is normally calm and congenial, speak in a most worried manner. He ordered me to stop what I was doing. I should likewise cancel my upcoming flight for the sake of zikuy harabim.

How could I possibly halt my holy works? That day, I was scheduled to deliver a shiur in the kollel, and, later that week, fly to Canada to strengthen the Jewish community there. It was inconceivable that I should cancel all of my plans. After analyzing all angles, I decided to continue as planned, not halting my efforts in zikuy harabim in any way. This is my purpose in this world; how can I stop in the midst of it all? I believed that, B’ezrat Hashem, my medical condition would stabilize, and I would have no need for physicians or prescriptions.

I was still sunk in thought, when I was suddenly roused by the ringing phone. My family doctor ordered that I repeat the tests in order to verify that my condition had not worsened. I did as I was told and then went back to my work, as I had decided to do.

I will not say that fear and worry did not enter my mind at all. Nonetheless, I placed my trust in Hashem. I truly believed that He can do anything and would certainly not abandon me. With this uplifting thought, I went to the kollel to deliver the shiur.

In the middle of the shiur, R’ Yitzchak, my secretary, entered. This time, he was happily waving a pile of papers in the air. These were the test results. A smile spread across his face, and he joyfully informed me that, Baruch Hashem, the results were fine, and I was in perfect health.

How thankful I was to witness the open miracle Hashem performed for me. I am certain that it was only in the merit of the resolution to continue in my pursuit of zikuy harabim, in spite of my concern for my health, which annulled the harsh decree.

Chiour du Tsadik Rabbi David Pinto au Collel Kol Haim - Raanana

Dans le cadre inspirant du Collel Kol Haim à Raanana, le Tsadik Rabbi David Pinto a transmis un chiour entouré du Rav de la communauté, Rabbi Yoel Pinto, et des Raché Collelim, Rav Avraham Magnouz, Rav Chimon Malka et Rav Elazar Barness.

Au cœur de cette rencontre mémorable, le Tsadik a abordé une question fondamentale qui intrigue souvent les esprits : Pourquoi la fête de Pourim est-elle si étroitement associée à la consommation de vin ? Avec sa sagesse éclairée, le Rav a dévoilé les secrets cachés derrière cette tradition séculaire en lien avec la faute de Adam et Hava et le serpent.

Le Rav a également souligné l'importance de l'étude de la Torah et d'avoir des ambitions de croissance dans celle-ci, encourageant chacun à voir grand.

Le Rav a pris le temps d'explorer en profondeur le concept de l'orgueil et de la vanité, mettant en lumière leur nature destructrice dans la vie spirituelle. En expliquant que le petit aleph dans Vayikra ויקרא, qui est traditionnellement écrit plus petit que les autres lettres, symbolise l'humilité et la modestie nécessaires pour approcher l'étude de la Torah.

De même, le petit mèm dans la Parachat Tsav מוקדה rappelle l'importance de rester humble dans notre service divin, plutôt que de laisser l'orgueil s'installer dans nos cœurs.

En conclusion, le Rav a souligné l'importance cruciale de prier quotidiennement et avec ferveur pour les soldats engagés dans les combats à Gaza, ainsi que pour les otages, les blessés et les malades.

À la fin du cours, tous les participants ont reçu une bénédiction chaleureuse du Rav, qui a béni l'ensemble de l'assemblée avec des vœux de Pessa'h cacher vésameah, leur souhaitant une joyeuse et paisible fête de Pessa'h.
