When they asked Reb Shlomo Freifeld why he persisted with the annual yeshiva Purim parade even when he was ill, and it was hard for him to move, he explained.
Maybe a Jewish woman in Lawrence (this before it was a frum neighborhood) will open her door on Purim morning to bring in the Times off her porch, and she’ll notice a flash of color, she’ll hear the music. She’ll crane her neck and see the parade and remember, ‘Hey, it’s Purim today.’ She’ll go in and tell her husband and they’ll be happy, remembering it’s Purim. “Efsher,” Reb Shlomo concluded, “m’ken unvarmen a Yiddishe hartz, we can warm a Jewish heart.” A freilechen Purim
Thank you Hashem for letting a special mitsva fall into my lap. I was driving down east 8th crossing kings highway and I saw a boy carrying a bag and something fell out of his bag right in the middle of the street the boy not realizing, continued walking. I pulled my car over and picked up the item it was a pair of tzisit I ran after the boy who was already a block away and was able to be mekayim the mitsva of hashavat avedah.
Thank you Hashem for letting me host a sheva berachot in my home with the help of some great friends. It was a pleasure to work together and the happiness and joy was incredible. May the bride and groom live a long happy healthy and successful life together!
Last week my email accounts were hacked. For some reason I spoke with the anti-hacking company very late at night and the technicians would only be around in the morning to fix the problem – of course with steep price including downloading their software…. Thank you Hashem that it was late and that department was closed…. The next day I davened – specifically asked Hashem to help me with this hacking issue, said some Tehillim – and listened to a shiur from Rabbi David Ashear – Emunah Daily – and was reminded that everything that happens to a person throughout the entire day is Hashem’s will and He can do anything! When I opened my email – lo and behold everything worked! Nothing was messed up nor was I blocked from any tasks!! 🙂
Thank you Hashem for helping make the hishtadlus, davening, relying on you, saving me the money and taking care of the problem! It was a powerful reminder for me. Thank you Hashem for always being there with me!
Went to the muni meter and went back to put the ticket in my car and a nice jewish man honks and tells me that I am not in a spot. There is 1 spot in the middle of the block that is very tricky and if I look close it says no parking. He saved me a ticket. The funny thing was I was deciding if I should go to one store or another and this man owned one of the stores I was deciding about and of course I returned the favor and gave him my business and went to his store. Thank you HASHEM
Thank you Hashem for answering my tefilot.
Thank you Hashem for the car alarm that went off at 5am, in front of my house. The alarm clock didn’t wake me, so Hashem sent me the car alarm to wake me, and I got to class on time !
I was trying very hard on Friday to keep to my deadline and get out of the office early but every phone call and interruption had me extending my deadline by a few minutes until I finally was able to get out the door.
I ran to the bank to make an important deposit and to cash a check then hurried to the train station. I was quite angry at myself from having spent much more time than I planned to being in the office. As I approached the turnstile I reached for my wallet to get my MetroCard and lo and behold my wallet was gone ! I immediately thought I must’ve left it in the office and tried to call to see if anyone was still there then it dawned on me that I last had it in my hand when I showed the teller my ID to cash the check. I ran back to the bank huffing and puffing and praying that my wallet would be there sure enough the teller recognized me and reassuringly said we have your wallet! THANK YOU HASHEM
Thank you Hashem for probably the happiest week in my life. I am so grateful to you.
Thank You HaShem for letting us celebrate Purim even after so many years of galut and that the Torah and our chagim never got lost from our nation!
Wonderful engagement this week . Thank you Hashem
Had family wedding and a bris this week. Thank you Hashem
I had $50 folded and separated in my pocket for a few days. I went to look for it and it was gone. I said oh well it must have fell out of my pocket being it was folded or maybe I mixed it in with my other money?. A few days later I was preparing for Shabbat and was not spending any shabbat meals home that week but still went and bought some nice things for the honor of shabbat and spent about 50 dollars. I got dressed and put my hand in my suit pocket and found the missing folded $50. Thank you Hashem……wow!!!- about one hour after I submitted this to the Thank you Hashem email, I just found ANOTHER $50 in my pocket! Thank you Hashem
