Spiritual Tools-Sassover-Imagining a Voice
The 12th of Adar is the Yahrtzeit of Rav Chananya Yom Tov Lipa (ben Chanoch Heinich) Teitelbaum, the Sassover Rebbe (1906-1966). He became a son-in;law of the Satmar Rav, when he married his daughter, Reizel, and headed his father-in-law’s yeshiva. He was buried in Teveria. He was succeeded by two sons (through his second wife), Rav Yosef Dovid – Sassover Rebbe in Kiryas Yismach Moshe in Eretz Yisrael – and Rav Chaonch Heinich – Sassover Rebbe in Monsey.
An essential for achieving perfection is that you always imagine that someone is calling to you, “Serve God!” And if you are eating or drinking or doing other things of personal discretion, you should picture that someone is calling you, “Why are you sleeping? Arise and call out to your God!”
And when someone is completely righteous, then, after much practice in serving the Creator this becomes his very nature and he feels of the holiness. (Likkutei Rav Moshe Leib, Likkutei Tehilim)
