Forty days from tonight to Shavuous - An opportunity to say Nishmas for Forty Days

Tonight is 40 days til Shavuous. Because 40 days can create something special, we would like to suggest that it might be a good opportunity for those inclined to say nishmas for the next 40 days. Nishmas expresses such a deep gratitude to Hashem as well as an understanding of the true role of our lives.

Rabbi Akiva Tatz gave a special shiur on Pesach which can be found on youtube. We made an audio clip of minutes 31:55 to 36:20 - see button below. Rabbi Tatz shares from the teachings of Rabbi Moshe Shapiro the exquisite beauty of the Nishmas prayer and how it demonstrates our highest avoda.

Hopefully, those who choose to say it will find it deepens the omer initiative with a gratitude and a teshuva, with emunah, and with a willingness to serve Hashem from where He has placed us.
Let us know by email if you plan on saying Nishmas for the next forty days.

Excerpt from Sparks from Berditchov - an Inspirational Guide to Avodas Hashem by Yaakov Klein

"In the 'pursuit of happiness', society considers the lack of limitation on human behavior as the freedom that will assist them in reaching their goal. The Torah, with its viewpoint of truth, teaches the opposite; true happiness will come not when we give ourselves up to our bodies' every whim, but when we subjugate ourselves to Hashem and His mitzvos. It is only then that we will be truly free, attaining the truest joy that exists_"

A practical verbal introspection to help us focus when working on the midda of the day

Thank you Hashem for my life that is my unique opportunity to direct the life force within me that might naturally further conceal You.. Please help me purify my heart. I want to purify my heart so that I sincerely have heartfelt emotions only to fulfill the Torah and emulate You. May these deep emotions be honestly reflected in my speech and deeds so that Torah and the force of Your Lovingkindess are seen and felt in the world. May it be a merit for Klal Yisrael and an acceptable teshuva that fixes what needs to be fixed and that generates eternal life and makes a kiddush Hashem.
