Interesting Pillar of Cloud Links - Vayetze 5773

The Muqata and YWN are live-blogging the war

Mystical Paths is "life-blogging" the war, and I especially liked his entry from Sunday

Hezbos and Mashiach's Wife both use Yeshaya 11:14 to apply it to the war

Some interesting war links from CosmicX

Shirat Devorah tells us about the Shmira Project

RCA, OU, and Young Israel call for an increase of Torah study along with Tefilla and Tzedaka

Israel takes over Hamas TV programming and they're using it to broadcast warnings  (I personally think that they should use it to replay over and over an unedited version of the video of Rav Ovadia Yosef Shlit"a singing "Yom Adir LeYisrael, Yom Arur LeYishmael", but that's just my opinion)

Yidden world wide are asked to please recite Tehillim and learn Torah as Zechus for the famous Magid of the generation Harav Shlomo Brevda Shlita, “Shlomo Leib ben Miriam” who is in urgent need of a Refuah Sheleimah. Again He has been hospitalized under stressful conditions currently in the ICU. The situation is so that only Tehillim & T'efilos can still help save his life.

Before being hospitalized: Rav Brevda requested that we increase the intensity of our Tefillos during Dovening and say Tehillim (day and/or night) whenever the opportunity arises. He feels in very dire straights. Please request that a Misheberech to be said for the Rav during Kryias HaTorah.
Thank you.

In his zechus, please read the following:on the 50th Yahrtzeit of Rav Aharon Kotler zt”l

In one of Rav Shlomo Brevda Shlita Droshes that he pointed out, that as much as we admire the men who learn Torah (we surely all do), we should admire their spouses and any spouse taking care of the home even more.
The men feel the tremendous pleasure of Toiling in Torah. Working on a difficult piece an eventually seeing even a drop of light can be a tremendous feeling of ecstasy.
However, what satisfaction do the women feel? She works hard day and night and then the kids get hurt and she* has to calm them, clean them, make supper, clean the house, laundry, Pesach clean too.......
A woman who encourages their spouses to go and learn Torah while they take care of the home will get the fullest reward of learning Torah on the highest level in the world to come!
Rav Brevda concluded this point by assuring that he has a very good source for this. He recalled that he heard it from Rav Aharon Kotler, z.t.l. 63 years ago (1949) the Rosh Hayeshivah and founder of the Lakewood Yeshiva the following.
Rav Aharon said that men get a Sippuk-sense of fulfillment from learning Torah. What do the women get? We sometimes "Batul"-waste our time in middle of learning-but women are constantly busy, non stop, they don’t have Bain Hazmanim to wake up late like some men do etc.
Rav Aharon stressed that the women will share in the reward for our learning Torah but they won’t share in any part of our Bitul Torah.
Rav Brevda recalls that some of the "Yunger-Leit"-members of the Kolel in Lakewood where surprised and ask Rav Aharon for clarification, "Are you saying that my wife will get more out of my own Torah learning than I will?

Rav Aharon answered emphatically, "Yah”!! Gleib mir vos ich zog!!-Yes!!! Believe me what I say!! Women are sacrificing more than men, especially in our generation. They are fully assured that they will be rewarded in full. We can never be sure if we have fully fulfilled our Tachlis in this world.


The name for Tehillim is: “Shlomo Leib ben Miriam”
