Tiferes shebe Yesod Rabbanit Iris Odani Elyashiv

Our facilitator this week is Rabbanit Iris Odani Elyashiv

Rabbanit Elyashiv’s first shiurim were on Parshat HaShavua (The Torah portion of the week)). Her method of teaching is known as The Pardes, an approach to Torah study with emphasis in textual analysis. Her lectures are intellectually challenging, inspiring, stimulating and exciting. Many of her students- the ones present at her lectures and the ones watching online at TorahAnytime.com- are constantly growing through her spiritual guidance and leadership ,and have found fulfillment in a Torah lifestyle.

The Rabbanit is currently teaching The Sefer (book) Tomer Dvorah, authored by The Ramak: Rabbi Moshe Cordovero , Zt''l, Zy''a. This Sefer is known to be a Segula for the prevention and cure of this generation’s dreaded disease. It is also considered the Shulchan Aruch of Tikun Hamidot, (the development and improvement of our moral character, personality, and temperament). Her goal is to teach and help everyone reach their potential in the perfection of their midot, thus, living a Torah-filled life, experience true happiness, and sincerely love and respect one another. This way we can hasten the coming of Moshiach, speedily in our days, Amen! Find out more at http://rabbanitiris.com/about-us/

We have spoken about how Shavuos is like our wedding day. And we have spoken how to the extent we prepare for the wedding we have deep insight and connection to G-d.

Maybe now is the time to go inside and ask ourselves, What is holding me back from fully marrying G-d? What is blocking me and holding me back from fully embracing this wedding? We all get cold feet sometimes.

Listen to the innermost voices inside of you and ask yourself, What small step can I take to move forward in removing this block? What piece of Torah could I learn that could motivate me to make this better.

Any small step you take will be monumental in your Shavuos journey.

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

The Message of the Aron: The prohibition of removing the poles used to carry the Aron from its rings represents the necessity of constantly "carrying" the concepts hinted to by the Aron - the six constant mitzvos. They are: (A) To belive that there is one G-d in the world, (b) Not to believe in any other g-d or force besides Him, (C) to believe in His Oneness, (D) To love Him (E) To rear Him, and (F) Not to be drawn after our eyes and hearts in ways that are against HIs will. Training our midns to travel to one (or all) of these six contemplations by default,constantly "carrying the Aron," we will enable our relationship with Hashem to take on a whole new dimension. In the same way "the Aron carried its carriers," these thoughts will uplift us,filling our lives with the bright light of a close connection with our Father in heaven....

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.
