אם בחוקותי תלכו - שתהא עמלים בתורה
It is said in the name of R. Chaim Brisker zt"l on the Pasuk אדם לעמל יולד, " A person is (יולד) born לעמל to be עמלים בתורה. While he is in his mother's womb and the Malach teaches him כל התורה there is no עמלות בתורה, therefore, he needs to be born".
I believe that studying mussar books designed to combat: anger, greed, jealously, wasting money, lust and hate are more helpful than studying laws that do not apply in our times.ReplyDelete
In the 1990s, the Gedolim attempted to decree guidelines to limit the amount of money we spend on celebrations, including the elimination of the vort ceremony.
These guidelines were ignored, so we still continue to spend huge amounts of money on celebrations, that would be better spent helping the poor and kiruv rechokim.
