Ask: Zeev b. from charleston (25/02/2007 #50)
Question: Hi Daniel:)) You are exceptional smart, and as
non religiues man would kindly ask you a question.
Can you be religiues in a way of excercise mitzvot she
between a man and his friends (bein adam le havero only),
or must be excersise mitzvot between a man and Hashem
(she bein adam la makom).
If the g-d is so great why he needs us to pray for his
greatness? Thanks, Zeev
Daniel: A jew must prove to HKB"HU that he wants to
be his true servant, therefore he must do all the Mitzvot
at least try to.
Do acts of kindness and pray to his father
in heaven always to help him with (in) every little thing
and every big thing that we believe a hundred percent
that he and HKB"HU and this way we show only he is the
creator and ruler of all creations and that we are his true
and loyal servants . Also that he is our father our only
Ask: Samuel from Jerusalem (28/02/2007 #73)
Question: Dear Daniel, Baruch Hashem that you are able to
communicate and spread your such clear and revealing
messages. I am a baal Teshuva now for about 10 years.
I have made a lot of progress and continue to do so slowly
all the time. But I have not removed the non-jewish part
of my life completely - like television. I am finding it very
hard. What will happen if I don't succeed in everything I
want to achieve before Moshiach comes?
Oh my, Shmuel of Jerusalem. What a sad question you are
ten years a Beal Teshuvah. So long .The first thing you
should have taken out of your house is the Television.
That's the reason you're finding it so hard to really do
Teshuvah. You bring the Goysh world into your home into
your heart and into your head with it therefore you could
never be a complete Beal Teshuvah until you get rid of
all the books and the newspapers and Radio. that are
Goyish. By the way like in mitsrayim where the jews that
couldn't detach completely from the ways of the egyptions
those four fifths (4/5) of the nation stayed in mitsrayim
were killed and stayed and never left. also now when
moshiach comes those who are still atteched to the goyishe
ways also will not leave.
Ask: Tova from silver spring (02/03/2007 #79)
Question: daniel, I'm thirteen years old and am trying very
hard to get close with hashem even though some people
in my class could look more close to hashem , but I love
hashem more than any one can imagine and it is very
hard for me to get close to hashem but I am trying and I
would like to know what i can do to get even closer to
hashem and I'm a religiouse girl and say perek shira every
day (try to) and I try to daven every day but sometimes
is very hard and can be very ADD thank you and i totally
understand everything that u are saying and believe 105%
thanks again -tova
Tova I was very happy to read what you wrote and I
bentch you that you'll get closer to don't worry too much
about adding more and more things to say. Add instead
chessed towards other people wherever you can.
Dress B'Tsnius [Modestly] because not everyone in
silverspring knows what Tsnius is and I know you'll always
have Siyatta Dishmaya (Heavenly Assistance) and as
much as you love Hashem he loves you back.
I'm sorry that I don't have answers for all the questions,
