Jewish History

The 12th of Tishrei is the yahrtzeit (anniversary of the passing) of Rabbi Abraham (1740-1776) the son of Rabbi DovBer of Mezeritch and study partner of Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi; known as "Rabbi Abraham the Angel" for his saintliness and ascetism.

Laws and Customs

Tachnun (confession of sins) and similar prayers are omitted.

Daily Thought

People ask, “How can I have confidence that everything will work out for the best? Perhaps I don’t deserve the best. Perhaps I’ve already messed up so bad, G‑d has given up on me.”

These people are confusing trust with faith.

Faith is something you may or may not have. But trust is something you do. Hard.

Trust is when, in times of trouble, you cleave so unshakably to the heavens, you pull them down to earth.

Trust is a mighty, heroic bond. Trust changes who you are—and what you deserve.

And it is available to anybody, at any moment, no matter who they were the moment before.
