מהפכה של קדושה - כנס שמור עיניך בירושלים - יום שני הקרוב

ביום שני הקרוב, ג' ניסן, 11 באפריל, יתקיים בירושלים בפעם הרביעית - הכנס השנתי של ארגון שמור עיניך.

אם היית באחד הכנסים הקודמים, אתה בודאי יודע שזאת הזדמנות נדירה לקבל הרבה עוצמה, השראה והחלמה!

הכנס מתאים הן לחברים חדשים שזו להם הפעם הראשונה שם "קופצים למים" והן לחברים ותיקים.

למרות החששות, למרות הלו"ז הצפוף לפני פסח, האירוע הזה הוא דבר שלא כדאי לוותר עליו.

הכנס יתקיים בירושלים, המיקום המדוייק יימסר לנרשמים.

הזדרזו לפני שתיסגר ההרשמה!


שמור עיניך

These 19 short videos clips are excerpts from a series on by Rabbi Ben Tzion Shafier called "The Fight - A Frank Strategy and Pan for Conquering Desire".


Gathering from the wisdom of chazal, this series presents a solid understanding of the mechanics of desire, and offers us a strategy and plan to winning The Fight of our Generation.



Every once in a while you feel like a failure. Maybe you failed a particular test; you blew it, or in general you're at a stage in life where you realize that I'm not quite who I could be, who I should be, who I would be. One of the great life lessons is how to deal with that.

I'd like to share with you an interesting observation. David Hamelech (King David), when he was king of Israel, said to Hashem bechanani (test me). And Hashem said I will test you, but it's going to be an incredibly difficult test. The test in fact was in the area of arayos (illicit relations). The Navi(Prophets) tells us that David told his guard bring me eishes (the wife of) Uri Hachiti, bring me that woman. The guard said wait, she's a married woman. And David Hamelech lived with an eishes ish (married woman), with Batsheva... on the link above for the video and accompanying essay.


25 Steps to Beating Porn Addiction

Please check out the full guide to beating porn addiction in this final issue (For the first in the series, please refer to issue #1436). The creators of the infographic have taken each of the 25 strategies and provided clear practical actions to take in detail:


Travelling and volunteering are two proven activities that ex-porn users say have helped them add texture and meaning to their lives. Seeing new places and helping people less fortunate than yourself can give you a different perspective on life. And you never know, you might meet someone wonderful to have a real relationship with.

Filling your time with meaningful real activities is essential to beating porn.
