A Gut Chodesh from AsktheRav.com!


The dedicated team of Rabbonim at AskTheRav would like to wish you a Gut Chodesh!

“Every Rosh Chodesh the spark of Moshiach, also known as the ‘Yechida’, which is in every Jew’s soul (which is a spark of the general Yechida – the soul of Moshiach) is revealed.

The revelation of this spark resonates and causes a rejuvenation in the entire being of every Jew, so that everything he does in permeated with the level of his Yechida,

And, most importantly, through this the revelation and arrival of Moshiach is caused in the most literal sense – a king from the house of David, soul in body etc.,”

– Sicha of Parshas Toldos 5752
