Inspirational words of Torah from Gedolei Yisroel.


INFLUENTIA
On Chanukah, we celebrate not only the defeat of the Greeks, but also our staunch dedication against the Greek influence. It is interesting to note that the Chofetz Chaim, in his explanation of the siddur, writes that the brocha of 'Sheloh Asani Goy' is intended to cover not only that we were not born goyim, but also that we don't have the same conduct and thoughts as the other nations. Chanukah is an auspicious time for us to evaluate our conduct--have we allowed into our mind or home something that would taint this brocha? Some nice inner reflection may be in order. In any event, a nice avodah over Chanukah would be to recite this brocha with a special thanks, and with a silent prayer, that we not be influenced in a negative way by the world around us, so that each and every one of us can fulfill our important special mission in life. -------------------------- Reprinted with permission from Hakhel MIS --------------------------
