Practical Tips
Being Street-wise on the Internet
By Anthony Nonymous
By GYE Member

As we all know, the Internet is a cesspool of shmutz.  And yet, in the modern era, it's almost impossible to live without it.  So, like walking on the streets, where you need to know which are the safe places to go and which are not, and what behavior is safe and what is not, you need to be "street smart" about using the Internet.  As a computer professional, I would like to offer a couple of tips to people who want to use the Internet safely.

Appreciating Dov's Messages
By GYE Member

Dear GYE,

Please pass on to Dov how appreciative I am of his posts. They are perceptive, speak to me personally, and pose healthy, life-developing challenges. They have inspired me to keep in regular contact with my sponsor and partner; they've led me to much-needed brutal honesty; they are also written in a great and engaging style.

Tizku lemitzvot.


The Hidden Light of Moshiach

It occurred to me recently, that the over-powering lust that Yehudah felt for Tamar that pushed him to sin, and the lust that Dovid Hamelech felt for Bat Sheva when he took her for a wife; both of these "lustings" ended up becoming the harbingers of Moshiach through Hashem's wondrous divine plan! (From Tamar came Peretz, and from Bat Sheva came Shlomo Hamelech).

The Hebrew name of this month is Av, and when we reverse its letters—alef and bet—a we get “bo,” the Hebrew word that means “come” in the command form. On the eve of the exodus, G-d instructed Moses: “Bo—come—to Pharaoh.” Shouldn’t He have said, “Go?” When it was time for Abraham to head out on his journey to the Promised Land, G-d said, “Go.” Why didn’t He use the term that we would expect when He pushed Moses to approach the Egyptian ruler?

Rebbe Nachman explains that “come to Pharaoh” has an important lesson for us. Pharaoh was our enslaver, our tormentor. The physical Pharaoh embittered our lives, and there are many circumstances and inner forces and feelings that can do the same. When we suffer from feelings of inadequacy or destructive behaviors, Moses is our path to liberation. Moses represents da’at—conscious awareness of G-d. It’s the integrated knowledge that G-d is right here with us, and everything is orchestrated providentially…even our challenges. When we finally hear His voice telling Moses—our conscious awareness—to confront Pharaoh, He does not tell us to “go.” He says, instead, “come”—come with Me, and we’ll go to face your demons together. It’s when we feel small and distant that He takes us by the hand—“I dwell together with the downtrodden.” Av is the low point of the Jewish year, when we’re still reeling from the fallout of the Pharaohs of our collective past. Even as we face our historical pain, we still need to remember that we’re in the month of Av, of bo—“Come with Me.”
