Rabbis Advice for Teshuva

Rav Elyashiv Shlit"a, Rav Shteinman Shlit"a, and Rav Wosner Shlit"a all call for Yeshiva students to strengthen Torah learning "with purity, in both deep learning and learning for gaining knowledge, with spiritual tasks of the heart and with correcting our character traits."

R' Yaakov Shapira says it's time for a spiritual revolution.

If there are any Yeshiva students who heard something from their Rosh Yeshiva as far as what needs to be done, please let me know what they said. Thanks.

It's not enough to learn Torah. We have to "do" Torah, too. Na'aseh v'nishmah.

The Rav at our shul said amazing chizuk.
He said that these 8 murdered boys are for sure in Gan Eden in the highest place, but what about us?

Another Rav, Rav HaLevi Shlita said that we must pay attention in regards to the ages of the boys that were mercilessly killed.

2 boys were 15 years old = Yud Key
2 boys were 16 years old - Vav Key
2 boys were 18 years old - double Chai
1 boy was 26 years old - 26 (YKVK).
(He didn't say anything about the 19 year old boy)
He explained that the enemies/Amalekim are still trying to separate the Yud Key from the Vav Key but Am Israel is Chai and will continue to be Chai and the proof is YKVK (the 26 year old Doron, HI'D)

The answer is to learn Chassidus. It's what the neshomas of this generation are starving for.

Vav Key is 11. How does that relate to 16?

hi Devach

in the calendar, we don't say 15 or 15, rather
15 - yud kay
16 - vav kay
17 - yud zain

etc....

16 is yud-vav in the calendar, not vav-kay

Sorry, I wrote without checking for errors! Here is what I meant to write:

15 = tet-vav (9+6)
16 = tet-zayin (9+7)

vav + heh (or kay if you wish) = 6 + 5 = 11
