Rabbi Twerski
 
Vayelech: No Spiritual Status Quo
 
By Twerski, Rabbi Dr. Avraham

Moses said, “I am 120 years old this day. I can no more go out and come, and Hashem has said to me, ‘You shall not cross the Jordan.’”

All his life, Moses aspired to spiritual growth, and reached heights unachieved by any other human being. No further growth was possible, unless he could enter the Holy Land and participate in its unique mitzvos. But since this was denied him, being at a point where he could not grow any more spiritually, life became meaningless, and he willingly accepted death.

Spiritual growth is what gives meaning to life. We should never resign ourselves to a spiritual status quo. There is always more we can do.

Personal request from Rabbi Twerski
 

Dear Friend,

I believe that in our generation, the single greatest danger to Klal Yisrael is that of immorality. The plague of illicit material on the internet has affected the type of people we would never have suspected vulnerable: yeshiva bachurim, kollel yungeleit and shomrei mitzvos lemehadrin. The Satan has won a battle, hurting so many individuals and families.

A forum post by one of GYE members, wondering outloud why there are not hundreds of new subscribers to GYE during these days of Teshuva and Cheshbon HaNefesh.

Where is everybody??
