Shema-Adar Joy-From Redemption to Prayer-Likkutei Eitzot Print E-mail
Written by Machberes Avodas Hashem   

Prayer-Shemah-Parsha-Kavanah-iPray-iLove-AdarThe 14th of Adar is the Yahrtzeit of Rav Yitzchok (ben Nosson) Sternhartz of Tulchin of Breslov (1870). He was buried in Tzefas near the Arizal and Beis Yosef: Because of melancholy and sadness, the mind and intellect are “in exile,” and it is difficult for one to reflect on returning to God, thus one remains far from God. The reason that mankind is so far from God is that people do not reflect properly on the purpose of the cosmos. However, through joy, the mind is stable and one can sing properly; for joy is the realm of freedom. Therefore, when one brings joy to his mind, he is  liberated from exile, and he can direct it wherever he wishes and thus reflect properly on his purpose in all his worldly enterprises, and thus return to God. (Likkutei Eiztot, Simcha #27)


Recite the blessing of, “Who redeemed Israel,” immediately preceding the Amidah with the intent to experience the joy of redemption in all aspects of life, so as to pray with infinite joy.
