The Chassidish Parsha
 Vaeschanan: “Veyadata Hayom Vehasheivosa" 
“Veyadata Hayom Vehasheivosa…” This Maamar expounds upon a verse in this week’s Parsha which embodies the very core of Judaism, the belief in G-d.

 Each & Everyone Ask Yourself Honestly 

Each & Everyone Should Ask Themselves Honestly: WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO HASTEN THE GEULAH?! The 15th of Av is a festival and day of joy.
