Thank You Hashem – Week 167

  • Thank you HASHEM for the great gift that you have given to us, the Magnificent HATZALAH. During YOM TOV  of SUCCOT,they gave me a possible life saving treatment in the ambulance that led to my speedy recovery.They are my heroes.


  • Thank you Hashem for the kedusha in my beautiful sukkah.
  • Thank you Hashem for a beautiful healthy and happy succot together with family and loved ones.
  • Thank you Hashem for saving me from what could have been a disastrous and very costly mistake in work. Right after I saw the error, and saw what huge consequences it could have had, I immediately said a perek tehillim and prayed to Hashem that it should all work out ok. I said, Ein Od Melevado, I know Hashem that everything is from you and whatever happens is all for the best I’m not going to panic or get nervous. Shortly thereafter BH it was all resolved very easily with no issues. I resolved right after that to send in my Thank you Hashem right after.
  • Thank you Hashem for watching out for me and my family and having us not eaten from that cheese that they just found out was not kosher. I had bought it awhile ago, and sliced it and after what we thought was a mistake with using a wrong knife, I told my family I’m not sure what the status is of that knife that it was sliced with- or with the cheese now that we used that knife (which I thought might have been a meat knife that I haven’t used in years). Let’s not eat it. I also took another look at it and said, I don’t like the way it looks either- I’m throwing it away. BH, Thank you for not letting us have eaten from it.
  • Thank you Hashem for a son in-law who wants sefarim for his birthday
  • Thank you Hashem for the safe returning of 4 sifrei Torah to the Ave O synagogue
  • Thank you Hashem for all of our blessings we receive daily.
  • Thank you Hashem for Alan Tobias. I just received a picture of the most beautiful wedding in Israel. It is a person I know that was struggling a lot with religion and struggling in getting back on the right derech. What we would sadly call a lost soul. With the patience and personal example of Alan this boy has turned his life around. He has moved to Israel and has gotten married today in Sefat. Tears rolling down my face as I stare at these pictures and videos sent by Alan. A miracle if you ask me. All due to the way Alan in his own simple way made him part of his life and lead by example. Kidush Hashem. How he invited him into his home for Shabbat and made him feel important. We all need to learn from this and to remember never give up on anyone. And extra Hazuk Ubaruch to Alan for making the trip to Israel to be with him and celebrate his wedding. Mazal tov to the happy couple.
  • Thank you Hashem for allowing me the zechut to inspire people in my sucah.
  • Baby boy- mabrook.
  • My friends son has become a chattan. Mazel tov u bracha
  • My friend had a new baby boy- thank you Hashem!
  • 2 engagements on the same day – thank you Hashem.
  • My son called me on the phone and asked if I am at work and by my computer. I said yes. He says can you do me the biggest favor?  I was like yesss , here we go, what item does he want me to look up and buy for him.  He asks if I can go to the shas-a-thon website and tell him if his masechet is available for him to learn at the shas-a-thon. Thank you Hashem for my wonderful son.
  • Thank you Hashem for a great friends wedding tonight.
  • I attended a very inspiring siyum and want to Thank Hashem for sending me these moments of inspiration.
  • Thank you Hashem for a spectacular morning on the beach.
  • There was a car speeding down a one way street trying to make the light. I noticed it because he almost hit me as I was preparing to cross the street. He flew across the 2 way street and a man with a kippah on his head was calmly crossing and turning towards his parked car. He was strolling care free talking on his cel phone but he was about to get hit by a fast moving car. I quickly said Hashem yishmarecha! and somehow the car stopped right before hitting him. Thank you Hashem. Also see Hashems hashgacha how every person sees what is necessary for him to see. This man actually has no idea what so ever how close he came to being hit by this car, he had his back to the car at the time the car was approaching and never even saw what transpired behind him. I on the other hand HAD to see this, maybe in order to send a quick tefilla to Hashem? Who knows? Everything according to the perfect cheshbon.
  • In viewing how corrupt the world is as we watch the election. We are reminded how Hashem and the Torah are the only real true emet in this world. Thank you Hashem for the reminder.
  • Thank you Hashem for the gift of life and giving us a chance every day to become better Bh
  • Thank you Hashem for holding our hand each day and for never letting us fall. Thank you for helping a family member find a part time job just at the right time when the extra money is truly needed.

Thank You Hashem – Week 100

  • Thank you Hashem for the beautiful weekend that my wife and I had at our daughters house in Long Branch,NJ,and thanks for the aliah that I got at Rabbi Diamonds Kollel , which was so special because both Rabbi Diamond, and Rabbi Kaye met me at the tabba to mabrook me.
  • Recently my wife and I traveled to 3 different cities in 4 days on a business trip.Several Flights, a lot of Luggage, Rental cars in each city, In and Out of Hotels and in each location the timing had to be perfect so I can catch a Minyan for each prayer in order to say Kadish 3 times a day. When we returned home, the trip was successful and every step of the way went super smooth B”H. No crisis that a bail out from Hashem was needed. I came home and said Thank You Hashem with all my heart, because we do not need a difficult situation to turn good in order to say Thank You Hashem. The best time to say Thank You Hashem (and the biggest test) is when Hashem makes everything go obviously smooth. David HaMelech in Tehilim (86-3) teaches us this as he says ” Choneni Hashem, Ki Elecha Ekra Kol Hayom”- David is requesting that Hashem do only obvious goodness with him and he will call out and converse with Hashem everyday. Human Nature is to call out to Hashem when in need, and this is why Hashem sometimes sends us a crisis, so that we wake up and communicate with HIM, however, David Hamelech A”H is teaching us not to wait for trouble. say Thank You Hashem everyday and there B”H will be no need for trouble.
  • Left my parking spot open for my daughter to park in it being she was going to be coming home late.I ended up parking around the corner. Went out to leave this morning and strangely there was a garbage truck in front of my house causing a traffic jam on my block.There never is a garbage truck so early in the morning, this was a first. I was able to avoid this delay being parked around the corner.Thank you Hashem for having me park elsewhere and thank you that I was not late for shul.
  • My sons birthday today may he grow up to be a true Yirat Shamayim and Sadik
  • Wow 100 weeks of thank you Hashem emails that’s amazing… Imagine how happy we made hakadosh baruchu … Special thanks to everyone involved every week it’s such a kiddush Hashem and a huge chizzuk every week … Thank you Hashem for allowing me to be part of this special community and family!!!!!!
  • Wedding last night – Mabruk
  • I was shabbat shopping at Pomegranate and some jars of pasta sauce caught my eye on one of the end caps. I looked at the flavors and saw the names but didn’t describe what it was. I wasn’t buying it but for some strange reason I picked it up to read the back and see what kind of sauces these were. Had a reliable hechsher on it. When I read the ingredients I see in Bold letters Parmesan Cheese. I look at the jar and don’t see it marked as dairy. I look again to make sure I am not seeing things and see the cheese in the ingredients. Maybe its parve non dairy? Who knows-looked around the jar, no signs of it being fake cheese. I show it to a friend of mine who works there and he says wow, I will put a sign saying these are Dairy and show it to the Mashgiach here. I get a phone call from my friend a little later on saying thank you, you have no idea what happened. They called the kashrut agency to ask about it and let them know about it and they said that this is an unauthorized marking of their hechsher on this product. They say that they do have their symbol on some of their products but not this one, that this one is totally not kosher. They were able to pull it off the shelves and stop customers from accidentally eating unkosher. I mentioned the name of the supermarket because I want to compliment Pomegranate for taking the extra step in checking this out and not just putting a dairy sign up or ignoring it, this should give us confidence while shopping there.
  • I was crossing the street in middle of a block and as I passed by a car, there was something that looked different so I stopped for 2 seconds and took another look at the car. I kept walking and suddenly  out of nowhere there was this guy zooming out of his driveway not even looking back he was literally 3 inches away from me I jumped back and thanked Hashem for saving my life who knows what could’ve happened thank You Hashem!!
  • Thank you Hashem for the reminder that you love me
  • Had a very positive talk with a customer of mine. Thank you Hashem for putting the right words in my mouth.
  • Weddings Monday, Wednesday and Thursday to attend this week. Thank you Hashem
