Noorah,

Thanks for the chizuk. In answer to your question of why I picked the name Nishmas: The Tefillah of Nishmas on Shabbos is my favorite Tefillah (excluding Yomim Noraim Tefillos). In my younger years, I would sometimes get goose bumps when saying it. It's filled with so much gratitude to the Ribono Shel Olam, and every so often in the past, it would make me feel very fortunate for those things that I have. Every once in a while, it brings me to tears.

As an aside point, I noticed that I never really saw any Bakoshos in the Tefillah (I guess since it's Pesukai Dezimra, that would make sense), only praise, but I would still have my Bakoshes in mind. I think I only found one phrase of Bakosha (at least in my Nusach), that of "V'Al Tietishainu Hashem Elokeinu Lanetzach". I would have more intense Kavanah on that phrase.

Anyway, I therefore thought that the name Nishmas would always give me a Positive Association and that's why I picked it for the forum. Thanks for asking.

Kol Tuv,

Nishmas

Ah ha! I knew we had a lofty lofty soul masquerading under the name. "Nishmas"

I think I only found one phrase of Bakosha (at least in my Nusach), that of "V'Al Tietishainu Hashem Elokeinu Lanetzach"


U probaly heard the pshat of the great Gaon of Vilna! What do you say? You didn't hear it!

Ok; no problemo. I will share it with you

Here is a Jew, overwhelmed with worry and anxiety about his future! "Oy oy what's gonna be" says he! The girls to marry off won't be! The mortgage payment I cannot see! The YH to overcome, before I'm mince meat" oy oy"
So we say to him "sweet sweet holy yiddele" pray tell us "how did you get here up till now? who made your mortgage payment until this day?" Your YH  to overcome, who made childs play?!!!

"Ad heina azurono rachamechu" up till now it was only Your compassion Hashem, and Your kindness never left us Hashem!!

Now we know that past performance is indicative to future performance "al tidsheinu Hashem Elokainu lnetzach" Hashem our G-d will not forsake me in all my worries big and small, for all eternity!!

Very encouraging! Especially for us "warriors" and "worriers"

Boundless love to holy brother Nishmas and to all the tzadikim on this holy site
Noorah

Noorah,

No, I didn't hear this Gaon before. It's Great! Fits perfect!

By the way, why did you pick the name Noorah?

You have no idea how much help you've been to get me started and feel more comfortable. Being shy most of my life and easily intimidated, this helps. "Ah Groysin Dank" (Thanks a lot) (I still remember little bits of Yiddish). Thanks Bardichev, too. I love both of your names. They also have positive associations for me. It's been a long time, but the name Bardichev has a special place in my heart. How the Bardichiveh used to be "Dan Es Kol Haodam L'KaF Zchus". I can still picture in my mind the way I visualize the man in one of the stories I heard fixing his flat tire (maybe the wheel of carriage in those days) with his Tallis and Teffilin, and the Bardichev defending him. I've never related about the Bardichev to my kids, and this reminds me that it's about time I do. It will be perfect as we go into Rosh Hashana.

I don't have time to read through the tons of stuff on this forum, but from what I've seen, you guys are really Heilig and give tons of Chizuk. THANKS!!!

Nishmas

Holy Nishmas regarding why I chose the name noorah, I copy from what I posted on my thread on June 7 my very first post on this holy forum (has it been that long ago )


I choose the name Noraah BAmram based on the famous story at the end of Kidushin where Reb Amram Chasida was faced with the battle we are all battling  on this site.  when he was halfway up the ladder to sin he shouted out "FIRE IN THE HOUSE OF AMRAM -   "FIRE IN THE HOUSE OF AMRAM -  I too scream out "fire in the house of Amram" "fire in the house of Amram" and all the sages came running to save him>I hope and pray that thru my continued posting on the forum and being on the 90 day chart,   somehow  the fires of the YH that is waging inside me will be also be extinguished. The chizuk and understanding that I received from all the members on this forum since I found this site about 2 months ago is absolutely  indescribable and immeasurable. Thank u to each and everyone of you- starting of course with our beloved webmaster, affectionately known around here as "Rabienu Guard"  for opening up and sharing your own  struggles, tips and suggestions and thereby giving me such tremendous chizuk. I'm not the best typist in the world but i will try to keep posting as time allows.N
