Salt Connections

One of the messages from this weeks Parsha is to always keep salt on the table at mealtimes.
Tosfos Brochos 40 a explains that it serves as protection from the Satan.
What is the message ?
One explanation is that salt consists of two ingredients , each of which is poison by itself but they combine to form a positive , beneficial entity. We learn that we can do the same to interact & respond to & with others to serve Hashem.

Subject: Fwd: Letter from Rebitzen Kanievsky- i could just cry!

Dear women and girls!? We need you to help us in prayers!


The? situation in Eretz Yisrael is very difficult. We are suffering terrible

losses, many orphans and widows from different diseases. My husband, The Rabbi,

was asked what could be the reason for all these tragedies.The Rabbi opened a

Gemara and said it's? because of foul language.And how can we correct ourselves?

Only by watching what we say.

?I read an article written by Rabbi Segal from Manchester who writes:

"Never did I see a person who learned 2 Halachot of Shemirat Halashon every day

and didn't see salvation from above, whether in children, in shidduch, good

health, parnasa or bringing up the? children.He had promised that whoever will

learn the Chafetz Hayim, he will be his defender in Heaven."And we witnessed

miracles that happened to people who took upon themselves two

Halachot every day and saw Yeshuot.


While I was reading the article a woman walked in crying and said she has a

number of aging daughters that are still not married.I showed her the article

and? immediately she said she will learn two Halachot of Shemirat Halashon every

day.Within three days one daughter got engaged. Two months later her second

daughter and ba"h this woman saw many Yeshuot.Like her, hundreds of girls who

took upon themselves the Shemirat Halashon got married.

A different story is about a woman who came to us about a year ago with great

sorrow saying that she'd been married for 20 years and she didn't have

children.I advised her to learn two Halchot every day and B"H she conceived and

now has a month old baby boy.

And another story:A few weeks ago a woman came to me, broken and crying, and

said that her mother is in the hospitalwith a growing tumor.She a sk ed what she

could take upon herself to help. Again, I advised that the entire family learn

two Halachot of Shemirat Halashon every day. Two days later she returned and a

sk ed of me to tell her story and the miracle that happened.She said that the

entire family gathered and decided to learn two Halachot daily and two days

later they received a phone call from the hospital saying to come and pick up

the mother, the tumor is gone and she is in good health.


I hear many miracles such as these.

And now, we should all take upon ourselves, bli neder, to learn two? Halachot of

Shemirat Halashon every day and pray with great kavana.

A prayer that comes from the heart through a holy mouth is immediately accepted

by Boreh-Olam and prevents many troubles and? tragedies and brings Yeshua to the

world.In the future, each one of us will be shown how many wonderful doings, how

many people we saved.And thanks to you, my dear righteous women and girls, we?

will have the Zechut to bring Mashiah Tzidkeinu soon in our days.

Yehi Ratzon that Hashem will fulfill all of your wishes for the best,

B. Kanyevsky

For Zikui Harabim,

Each one who receives this letter should try to make at least 50 copies and

spread them for your own success, and you shall be? blessed by Hashem, amen


?And whoever exceeds that amount will be blessed directly from the mouth of

The Olah offering represents total committment as it is consumed completely.
A Mincha , represents doing as much as you can , even a small amount. Hashem considers everything we do as very precious.

2 Mitzva Messages

The Sedra of Vayikra contains 16 official Mitzvot of the 613. We will focus on about 2 of them each day with Hashems help.

Mitzva 115 - how to bring an Olah offering

M. 116 - how to bring a Mincha grain offering.
Every offering brings us closer to Hashem. Nowadays we have many Mitzvot that are forms of offering & humbling ourselves for the sake of Hashems honor.
