This shiur, especially the very end, was so powerful, it brought me to tears (and I am not at all an emotional person.)

Would love to discuss this if any of you listen to it!

I listened to this when it came out and it was really mind-blowing. I always just assumed everyone who died was "al kiddush Hashem." It never occurred to me to question it.

But what he said about the "bumper crop" of the Holocaust survivor generation was so beautiful.

He is very good. His brother is our neighbor, so DH was able to get his new sefer.

Yes, that is true.
What I found particularly inspiring is the idea he brings from the Nesivos Shalom (who quotes Reb Zusha), that we, as a nation, are kedoshim. YIsroel, kulam Kedoshim. That sometimes a person has the neshama of the mitzva without the act, and others have the act without the neshama, and the two of them fuse together to create one perfect mitzva.

So those who died without intent to be mekadesh shem shamayim may not be "kedoshim" in and of themselves, but when the survivors accept "ol malchus shamayim" properly, their intent fuses with the people who actually did lose their lives for being Jewish.

It's so profound because it gives meaning to their deaths and it gives us- those who are alive- the responsibility to do our part to complete the kiddush Hashem.

This is one if the most incredible, inspiring ideas I have ever heard.

Lag B'Omer is coming up at the end of this week.
Lag B'Omer is a holiday that is shrouded in mystery. So I really appreciated the insighte Rabbi Glatstien shared in this shiur.

I want to thank imorethanamother for recommending the shiur on The Ten Commandemnts of Raising Children. I heard it and was so impressed. I have since recommended it to others. Now it's one of my top three, lol!

I feel that this shiur has the ability to change my life and my relationship with my children. I especially was amazed by commandment number 1.

Also, as an aside, what he says in the first 2.5 minutes is so perfect. Its not directly related to the subject, but its related to every single thing we learn. I always say this but could never express it as well as he did.

Thank you again, imorethanamother.

I really enjoy the Bereishis parsha shiurim -- there is so much to learn about the Imahos, for example:

I also love the old Navi shiurim, which are on TorahAnytime. they stopped a few years ago -- I hope that they pick up again at some point!

I listened to this shiur on Tisha B'av, and I have to say, I can't stop thinking about it. It's bothering me, because the implication is that Mashiach hasn't come because we haven't demanded it.

But...haven't we? I mean, what? And Hashem will decide to send it because we demand it? This whole thing is so confusing, and I have no one to talk it over with.

Do you think most people are passionate about it? Yearn for it?

Recently I posted a few of Rabbi Glatstein's shiurim here and there on various threads, and there seemed to be quite a few fans.

I used to commute to work and spent the time listeing to different shiurim on TorahAnytime. Once I started listening to Rabbi Glatstien, his shiurim became my go-to. I always learned new things.

There were some shiurim that were so memorable and fascinating to me that I would love to share with others. I'm wondering if there are other Imas who would be interested in an exchange of shiur recommendations, where we could give a quick synopsis of the shiur and maybe it can lead to further discussion.

But first, I want to explain what it is about Rabbi Glatstien's style that I appreciate. Firstly, he brings sources from all over. Ashkenaz, Sefardi, Chassidish, Litvish, mekubalim, Rishonim, Acharonim etc.

Whenever he brings an obscure or lesser known source, he gives a brief biography, or tells you where and when he lived. (Love this!)

He doesn't waste your time. He really packs it in. He doesnt use dramatics or hyperboles. He may say a quick story or illustration, to make a point but he doesn't say stories for the effect. He speaks clearly but at a quick pace. He has a dry sense of humor that comes out at times.

I especially like that he doesn't take anything for granted. When exploring a topic, he goes through the sources from the earliest mention of it and brings it through until today.
Also, he speaks on so many topics, he is not a "one trick horse. "

He is not afraid to tackle controversial subjects, but he does so with respect and sensitivity.

Perhaps most importantly, he doesnt say over all the same things you heard 100 times. He is always bringing in new perspectives and shedding light on a subject in a way that is fresh and new. He is not boring! (I am a bit ADHD and can't stand listening to boring speakers who repeat themselves over and over.)

Anyone interested?


He also has a lot of charm. Thanks for introducing me to these shiurim.

I don't really understand this. Is it a matter of numbers? Or is it that anyone demands it? If he's saying that 10% need to demand it, don't you think in all of history, there wasn't 10% at a given time who were passionate for moshiach?

And if it needs to be 100%, we've never 100% agreed on anything, so that's just not fair.

I mean, look at the Julia situation from the orthodox something or other (I haven't watched the show). Do I have any influence on this woman whatsoever? Do I even have influence on anyone to change their mind about anything? Why is it that there are these impossible goals for any of us to get moshiach, and then this shiur says, "Oh, you would have had it if you demanded it." Who? Who needs to demand it?

Why don't you email him? I don't know that anyone can precisely say why Moshiach hasn't come yet.

I have tried emailing him with questions in the past and was never answered. Hope you have better luck.

Imorethanamother, I dont know if I heard this particular shiur, but I have heard him talk about this topic- that Moshiach isn't here because we don't demand it .

I understood it to mean that each of us has to really want it, as in really yearn for it. Don't worry about whether Moshiach actually comes or not, that's not in our hands. Just worry about fulfilling the mitzva of tzipisa L'yeshua.

Many of us pay lip service to the idea of Moshiach, but we feel pretty comfortable in out current lives. It's hard to feel the desire for Moshiach when we are so comfortable.
