Aneinu Please Daven

Please daven for Esther bas Miriam, who has advanced/metastatic breast cancer which has spread to her liver. You may have seen requests to either raise funds for or to find "Ibrance" a medication she needs.  [IBRANCE first was approved in February 2015 and also is indicated for the treatment of HR+, HER2- advanced or metastatic breast cancer in combination with letrozole as initial endocrine-based therapy in postmenopausal women.The indication in combination with letrozole is approved under accelerated approval based on progression-free survival (PFS). Continued approval for this indication may be contingent upon verification and description of clinical benefit in a confirmatory trial. The confirmatory Phase 3 trial, PALOMA-2, is fully enrolled.  IBRANCE is the first and only cyclin-dependent kinase 4/6 (CDK 4/6) inhibitor approved by the FDA.]    If you have already seen her letter below and what her friend wrote, which follows it, I apologize. If you have any connections or might in any way be able to help her, her plea is below: Shalom My name is Esther Caplin, from Neve Daniel​, Israel​ After a year of treatments for stage 4 breast cancer which has spread to my liver, my oncologist decided to put me on Ibrance (with Faslodex) providing me with a free 3-month supply of Ibrance that he had obtained from a former patient.  Unfortunately, Ibrance is not one of the cancer drugs supplied on the health plan in Israel and my oncologist hoped to use the three month period to assess its effectiveness on me and to try to acquire more of the drug from Pfizer on compassionate grounds. While the Ibrance has succeeded in halting the spread of the cancer, the request to Pfizer did not work out. As buying the drug was not a viable option, I began a search in my support group (Inspire) for women who were once on Ibrance and since moved to a different treatment, the idea being that some people have Ibrance that is no longer being used. I was successful so far in obtaining enough pills for two more months of treatment. I am asking you to please spread the word – if you know anyone who was once on Ibrance and wishes to donate her left over Ibrance pills, please contact me  As I see it, the unused medicine eventually will be thrown out, but for me, every 21 pills means another month of life. * Thank you so much for passing this on to whomever you think may be able to help me.  In appreciation,  Esther Caplin One of my very close friends is in desperate search for Ibrance pills for breast cancer, the only treatment that has helped her so far. Some amazing women around the world have donated some but only for two more months. Perhaps you could post this on your e-mails or your rabbis can announce the need for this drug from the pulpit. Each bottle costs about $10,000, but many women have gone on and off this treatment so we are trying to find them. Only in American cancer support groups did my friend and her husband get responses that donating unused medicines is illegal etc. but we are talking about life and death and thousands of dollars of life-saving drugs that may otherwise go into the garbage. Esther adopted 5 children, she is now raising one of her grandchildren and is very central in her entire family’s lives, as you can imagine.  She is an amazing, positive human being who refuses to succumb to her circumstances, is incredibly active and continues to surprise and inspire her doctors and all of us

Live Remote Alert! Nachum Segal broadcasts from Yeshivat Makor Chaim in the Gush Etzion area of Israel

Nachum Segal and Miriam L. Wallach ended their week of amazing Israel broadcasts with a visit to Yeshivat Makor Chaim in the Gush Etzion (south of Jerusalem) area of Israel. Yeshivat Makor Chaim was established in 1985 under the visionary leadership of Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz (Even Israel). Today, the Makor Chaim Educational Institution operates a high school located in the Gush Etzion area, south of Jerusalem. “‘For just one moment, as if lit up by a flash of lightening, the true nature of the Jewish People was revealed.’ This is how Racheli Fraenkel, mother of our late student Naftali described the events following the kidnapping and murder of the three boys. So too, the special spirit of Makor Chaim, the institution where Naftali and Gilad studied, was revealed to all. In talks she has given around the world, Mrs. Fraenkel attributed the unprecedented wave of Jewish unity in great measure to the unique philosophy and special leaders of Makor Chaim. Minister Naftali Bennet opened the school year with us saying: “Last summer, Yeshivat Makor Chaim became the ‘source of life’ for Am Yisrael!” Our new campus will be a beacon of light for Gush Etzion and all of Israel!” As always, you can see some great pictures fro this morning’s show at the NSN Facebook page HERE.

Rav Chaim Kanievsky on the Three Weeks Comments, laws, customs, stories, and perspectives on Eichah, Kinnos, History, and Geulah Jaffa Families Edition By Rabbi Avraham Yeshayahu Shteinman (Compiled by) IST KESHER STAM

Imagine you're sitting with Maran Rav Chaim Kanievsky in his study for a broad-ranging conversation. This book puts you in the Rav's study as he shares stories, commentary, laws, customs, and perspectives on the Jewish past and future. The topic is the Three Weeks, but the content is universal. In this sefer: Rav Chaim comments on all of Eichah, selections of Kinnos and the Haftaros of the Three Weeks, and the Haftaros of Consolation. He relates stories about his father, the Steipler Gaon; his uncle, the Chazon Ish his mechutan, Maran Rav Aharon Leib Shteinman , and others. He tells you about his personal customs and those of his father and uncle. He discusses laws of the Three Weeks and Tishah B'Av. He shares gem after gem - about tragedy and consolation, disappointment and hope, galus and geulah. Also includes the full text and translation of Eichah with Rav Chaim's comments (From Artscroll)

Edges of Truth Perspectives on Life - Based on the Writings of the Sfas Emes by Simcha Leib Grossbard IS AT KESHER STAM

Rav Moshe Chaim Luzzatto, the Ramchal, was among our nation's greatest thinkers and kabbalists. Yet, as great as he was, he felt duty bound to write Mesillas Yesharim, a (relatively) simple work that stresses the basic character requirements needed for improving one's Divine service. Why? While all principles of Torah are very important, that which helps us change and brings us closer to what G-d wants of us, is most important. Similarly, although the Sfas Emes al HaTorah is famously full of novel ideas, Kabbalah, and enlightening interpretations, its main objective is not simply intellectual. The ideas are meant to help us acquire the traits necessary to make one's service to Hashem complete and whole. Therefore, everyday issues such as bitachon, praying, Torah study, Grace after Meals, reward and punishment, exile and redemption, and more are addressed - and explained with appealing, deeper dimensions of understanding. Those who learn the Sfas Emes can't help but be spellbound by the magnificent ideas of its author, Rav Yehuda Aryeh Leib Alter, the second Gerrer Rebbe. With Edges of Truth, we can integrate these amazing concepts into our daily lives.(From Feldheim)If you look you will even find a few divar torahs on the parsha.

THE BAIS HAVAAD HALACHA JOURNAL: Volume 5776 Issue XXXIX Chukas RAISING THE MINIMUM WAGE What is the attitude of Halacha towards minimum wage legislation? By: Rav Yitzchak Grossman, Dayan at Bais HaVaad and Senior Lecturer at Greater Washington Community Kollel

he Democratic platform draft committee recently voted to adopt language supporting a $15 an hour minimum wage, siding with Bernie Sanders and against Hillary Clinton, who backs a national rate of $12 an hour. Currently, the federal minimum wage is only $7.25 an hour. In this article, we consider the basic idea of a mandatory minimum wage from various Torah perspectives. At the time of print, there are reports that the Clinton campaign has agreed to Sanders’ platform of a $15 federal minimum wage. In this article we will examine the attitude of Halacha towards the regulation of minimum wage.

THE BAIS HAVAAD HALACHA JOURNAL: Volume 5776 Issue XXXIX Chukas MERCHANDISE MISREPRESENTATION Providing false or misleading information and its consequences By: Rav Yosef Greenwald, Dayan at the Bais HaVaad of Yerushalayim

The Mishnah says1: “Ein mefarchersin, lo es haadam ve'lo es habeheimah ve’lo es hakeilim” – one may not embellish or dress up a person, animal, or vessels in order to attract a customer and sell these items for a better price. This is included in the prohibition of G’neivas Daas – deception – as brought in the Shulchan Aruch.2 The Gemara explains that this prohibition only applies to something that is old, but not to something new. One is allowed to paint a new item to make it more attractive and more eye-catching in order to raise the price. But one is not permitted to paint an old piece of merchandise in order to fool customers into thinking it is new. If a buyer wants to pay a higher price for something that looks nicer, let him pay it. But if something is misrepresented by the storekeeper, there is an issur of G’neivas Daas.

Our good friend Sarah has put her house up for sale, and she plans on buying a house in a different area. One realtor has told Sarah that she is willing to sell her a house in that other neighborhood at way below market value. As we have already seen, Sarah is always on the lookout for a good bargain. Is Sarah allowed to buy a house from a Jewish seller at a price that is way below its market value if the owner is not aware of its full value? And while she is at it, Sarah wants to know: Where and when else do the halachos of Ona’a apply?

THE BAIS HAVAAD HALACHA JOURNAL: Volume 5776 Issue XXXIX Chukas Time to Grill Important kashrus details to keep in mind during this barbecuing season By: OU Kosher HALACHA YOMIS

OU Kosher Halacha Yomis This column is dedicated in memory of: Rav Chaim Yisroel ben Reb Dov HaLevi Belsky, zt'l Senior OU Kosher Halachic Consultant from 1987-2016 Q. Can I use flavored charcoal briquettes for my barbecue? A. Rav Belsky, zt”l held that one may not use wine soaked wood chips or charcoal briquettes that contain wine flavors. Although the briquettes do not directly touch the food and are burned up in the fire, nevertheless they release an aroma which impacts the food. Not only is it forbidden to drink non-kosher wines, but it is forbidden to derive benefit from them as well. Although Rama (Yoreh De’ah 123:1) writes that nowadays if one is a facing a situation of loss, one may be lenient with regard to deriving benefit from non-kosher wine, this leniency does not permit one to use these briquettes l’chatchila, in the first instance, since this does not involve a situation of loss. Other flavored briquettes such as hickory and smoke do not pose a problem. They are unlikely to contain any non-kosher ingredients, and even if they did, Shulchan Aruch (Yoreh De’ah 108:1) rules that although it is improper to allow a kosher food to absorb a non-kosher aroma, it will not make the food non-kosher.

OU TORAH Chukas 5776 By Rabbi Shalom Rosner

Click here.


The entire book of Bamidbar is a litany of bad behavior, poor choices and a lack of faith that dooms that generation – a great generation that left Egypt triumphantly and miraculously – to death in the desert of Sinai. But perhaps the most tragic event on a human and personal level is contained in this week's Torah reading when the fate of Moshe is sealed.


It is fairly obvious to any unbiased observer of our current world scene that things are pretty messy right now. The economic markets are reeling from the unexpected decision of the British electorate to leave the European Union. The sectarian wars in the Moslem world in Afghanistan, Iraq, Lebanon, Syria and Saudi Arabia continue without mercy, without abatement and with no exit strategy in sight.

OU TORAH Healing from the Trauma of Loss (Chukat 5776) By Britain's Former Chief Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks

It took me two years to recover from the death of my father, of blessed memory. To this day, almost twenty years later, I am not sure why. He did not die suddenly or young. He was well into his eighties. In his last years he had to undergo five operations, each of which sapped his strength a little more. Besides which, as a rabbi, I had to officiate at funerals and comfort the bereaved. I knew what grief looked like. The rabbis were critical of one who mourns too much too long.[1] They said that God himself says of such a person, “Are you more compassionate than I am?” Maimonides rules, “A person should not become excessively broken-hearted because of a person’s death, as it says, ‘Do not weep for the dead nor bemoan him’ (Jer. 22:10). This means, ‘Do not weep excessively.’ For death is the way of the world, and one who grieves excessively at the way of the world is a fool.”[2] With rare exceptions, the outer limit of grief in Jewish law is a year, not more.

RAV KOOK ON Chukat Part 4: Speak to the Rock

What is the meaning of God’s instruction to Moses to speak to the rock? Can rocks hear us? The short answer is — yes! Nature and all of its laws are listening. They listen for the call of redemption. They yearn for the redemptive light that preceded the creation of the universe. When this unifying light is revealed, the world’s divided factions become linked and bound to their underlying foundation.1 As Moses approached to speak to the rock, all of creation was listening. Tragically, instead of speaking, Moses hit the rock. The waters, meant to revive and nourish the people, instead became Mei Merivah — ‘Waters of Dispute,’ bringing conflict and discor into the world. With his impatience and anger, Moses introduced a framework of coercion and force into the world, thus debasing the universe. The world was no longer ready to listen in attentive quietude to the inner voice of the Infinite. The paradigm shifted from speaking to striking, from receptive listening to coercive force.

RAV KOOK ON Chukat Part 3: The Book of God's Wars

The Torah reading concludes with an obscure reference to the “Book of God’s Wars,” describing the Arnon canyon near the border between the Land of Israel and Moab. The verses are cryptic, and the Talmud (Berachot 54a-b) fills in the details with the following story: Just before the Israelites were to enter the Land of Israel, the Amorites (one of the Canaanite nations) laid a trap for them. They chipped away at the rock, creating hiding places along a narrow pass in the Arnon canyon. There the Amorite soldiers hid, waiting for the Israelites to pass through, when they could attack them with great advantage.

RAV KOOK ON Chukat Part 2: Religious Rage

Moses made a terrible mistake. Near the end of their forty-year journey in the desert, the Israelites had arrived at Kadesh. There was no water to drink, and the people complained bitterly. God commanded Moses to take his staff before the entire people and speak to the cliff-rock, to provide water for the nation. Moses took the staff and assembled the people. But he shouted, “Listen now, you rebels! Shall we produce water for you from this cliff?” (Num. 20:10) Moses then struck the cliff twice with the staff, and a huge flow of water gushed out. The commentators scratched their heads trying to understand what exactly was Moses’ mistake — an error so serious that God did not allow him to enter into the Land of Israel. Was it a case of uncontrolled anger, as Maimonides explained? Was he punished for disobeying God by hitting the rock (Rashi)? Was it because he initially fled from the people (Ibn Ezra)? Was it for saying ‘Shall we produce,’ instead of ‘Shall God produce’ (Rabbeinu Chananel)?

RAV KOOK ON Chukat Part 1: Even in the Hour of Death

“This is the Torah law: when a person dies in a tent ....” (Num. 19:14) This verse introduces the laws of impurity connected to death. But the Sages derived from here an important lesson about the essence of Torah: “Rabbi Yonatan said: One should never abstain from attending the Beit Midrash [the house of study] and from Torah — even in the hour of death. As it says, “This is the Torah: when a person dies in a tent.” Even in the hour of death, one should be engaged in Torah study.” (Shabbat 83b) Why did the Sages teach that one should study Torah in all situations — even on one’s deathbed?

Introduction to Yirmiya By A Journey Through Nach Yirmiya Perek 1 By A Journey Through Nach So Join Rabbi Menachem Leibtag and Rabbi Jack Abramowitz for Yirmiya today.ORDER HERE FROM AMAZON IN HARDCOVER AND KINDLE FORM.In Jeremiah: The Fate of a Prophet, Rabbi Dr. Binyamin Lau breaks down the Book of Jeremiah, rearranging its chapters according to historical events and the chronology of the prophet’s life. This groundbreaking reconstruction turns the biblical narrative from a collection of disjointed prophecies into a thrilling account of warring empires and nationalistic struggle, social decay and political intrigue, soaring hope and crushing despair. Jeremiah: The Fate of a Prophet is the debut volume of Maggid Studies in Tanakh, a major new series that incorporates traditional rabbinic interpretations with scholarly literary techniques to explore the texts, themes, and personalities in the biblical narrative.(FROM KOREN)AND DONT FORGET THE The Milstein Edition of the Later Prophets: The Book of Jeremiah / Yirmiyah FROM ARTSCROLL Following the pattern of the universally acclaimed Yeshayah / Isaiah, this new volume includes: •The universally acclaimed ArtScroll translation • A clear, broad-ranging, graceful commentary • Newly typeset Hebrew commentaries of Rashi, Radak, and Metzudos • Overview explaining the role of the prophets • Introductions and explanations of concepts and prophecies • Lightweight, opaque, acid-free paper; reinforced, sturdy binding • Gilded page headings; Ribbon place marker Jeremiah was given the saddest and hardest of all missions: For 40 years he warned a stubborn nation that they were heading for destruction — unless they heeded his pleas to repent. The Temple alone could not protect them! Egypt’s promises to defend Jerusalem were worthless! Only Hashem could help them — and He would, but only if they repented! What was the response? Jeremiah was ridiculed and reviled. The scroll of his prophecy was slashed and burned. And he was actually imprisoned and threatened with death for saying the unpopular. But the underlying message of Jeremiah is that destruction will be followed by redemption. Israel will always survive and thrive again. There may be a Nebuchadnezzar, but there will also be a Messiah. Israel’s enemies will disappear in ignominy. And no matter how far Israel may fail — they always remain the people of Hashem and Hashem remains their God. So ultimately Jeremiah is a Book of hope and inspiration. This brilliant, elevating work belongs in every Jewish library!

List of Jewish victims in Nice, France: Axel ben Yaël Moshé ben Yaakov Clara bat Nouna Yonatan ben Zuzi John Dray Dominique Azan

Thursday, July 14, 2016 Terror Strikes Nice, France; Dozens Killed, Scores Injured Camp counselors narrowly escape; prayers requested for Jewish community member

France has again been the site of a major terror attack when a man sped a large truck into hordes of people on Thursday evening after a fireworks display that topped off the Bastille Day celebration in the southern city of Nice. More than 75 people have been reported killed, with the toll continuing to rise, and scores more injured. The driver was shot dead by police. According to Rabbi Yossef Yitschok Pinson, director of Habad Loubavitch of Nice Côte d’Azur and head Chabad-Lubavitch emissary in the region, at least one of the wounded is a Jewish community member. Counselors at Chabad’s Gan Israel day camp were at the scene of the attack. Having apparently crossed the street just moments earlier, they narrowly missed the truck’s path of destruction, recounted Pinson. “They had to run from the truck,” he said. “It was just a few feet away from them.” Members of the camp were initially placed in lockdown in a local restaurant. They have since left for the safety of the rabbi’s home. “Obviously, they are very upset, having seen everything—people falling and bodies,” said Pinson. Chabad will be seeking professionals to help Gan Israel staff deal with the trauma. “We are praying for everyone who has been injured in this terrible attack,” said Pinson, who requested that people keep Moshe ben Yaakov in mind during their prayers.
