V'assei ess chatascha v'ess olasecha v'chapeir ba'adcha uv'ad ha'am. (9:7)
Quotes from Dov:
"Hashem led me to Fall with an aveira so that I should realize how low I am & get a jolt. That is what got me into Recovery."
"When my Recovery includes Step 12, I'm making my aveira into a zchus!"
I wouldn't have been able to help others if I wouldn't have fallen myself!
V'assei ess chatascha - Hashem led me to my Aveira,
v'ess olasecha - to reach a way for me to rise up!
v'chapeir ba'adcha - it will be a kappara for me...
uv'ad ha'am - 'cuz I can now better help others out of their aveiros too!
