Teshuvah

A Prophetic Vision

One year, after Yom Kippur, a pitiful woman came to see me. She had lost her entire family and suffered from additional problems. But materialistically speaking, she lacked nothing.

This woman had mystical leanings and dabbled in the hidden areas of the Torah, such as Kabbalah and the like. But instead of channeling her spiritual tendencies to Torah and mitzvah observance, she was drawn to Buddhism. She had never had a proper Jewish education to set her on the right path.

This woman went to India to satisfy her religious yearnings. According to protocol, she removed her shoes before the Buddha, immersed herself, and requested to be accepted to that religion.

That night, she had a dream. A tzaddik appeared to her and said, “Look at me. Have you ever heard of Elijah the Prophet? I am he, standing before you. Leave this defiled place immediately and return to your home and your heritage!”

The woman awoke in a cold sweat. The very next day, she took a plane out and came back home, physically and spiritually.

She told me that in the merit of her dream, she returned to Judaism. This year, she merited observing her first Yom Kippur as a true Jew.

She continued showing interest in Judaism and asked how to do complete teshuvah.

Of course, I showed her the path to teshuvah. I realized that her dream was a message from Above. Hashem was, so to speak, telling her, “My daughter, you are making a fatal mistake. I am the only G-d. Why do you bow to stone? Come, pray to me. Learn about your rich heritage and return to your Heavenly Father.”

This will be the goal of Eliyahu Hanavi, in the future, as the pasuk says (Malachi 3:24), “And he will return [to Hashem] the hearts of fathers with [their] sons.” The hearts of the wayward sons will be turned back to their Heavenly Father.

The Tzadik Rabbi David Pinto Shlita doing Birkat Hailanot

The Tzadik Rabbi David Pinto Shlita was in Kiryat Herzog in Bne Brak in the grove of Rav Moshe Sheikh, student of Rav Shteinman Zatzal to do Birkat HaIlanot on fruit trees during the Month of Nissan.
Rav Sheikh explained that this grove was very unique in the fact that it has all seven species of fruits according to the Torah, and also has all of the halachic stringencies in its planting and growth.
Rav Sheikh also showed the Rabbi Pinto Shlita a palm tree that was planted using the seeds of the dates that were personally eaten by Rav Shteinman Zatzal.
Rabbi Pinto Shlita made the Bracha and before leaving, blessed Rav Sheikh with a fruitful descendance in the ways of Torah, Amen.

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.
