The Hero In You

The definition of greatness and heroism by Judaism is quite different than the way society today looks at them. What makes a hero? Who are your and your children’s heroes? Most importantly, how can you rise from a life of mediocrity and find that hero within?

Judaism, Positive Dyads (+ Relationships), and Unifications (HaShem) In All Things Rabbi Bryski, as I listen to The Hero In You, I'm realizing that you are not only inspirational, as usual, but you are speaking to the very work that I am doing, that HaShem, is behind all of the "Oneness" that can be seen, in more or less complete form, all aspects of the Cosmos and of human spiritual life here on Earth, as is exemplified by Judaism. Actually Judaic Culture was predated by the people of the Copper Age. Then Copper was alloyed with Tin to make much harder Bronze. I'm sure you know a great deal about the Bronze Age. The great conflict in our culture which I call Small Society Cultures Vs. Imperial Society Cultures actually started with the people of the Copper Age but is now defined as "Anti-Semitism". The Cosmological development of the Universe as well as the Laws of Physics are involved with this and I'm currently relearning my higher mathematics and Physics as well as the conflict / dependencies between Small Society Cultures and Imperial Society Cultures.

I cannot find the right words to express the way you have blessed me. I would like to believe that it was our G_d who woke me up at 1:30a.m. I prepared some coffee. I read a few of the stories listed on Chabad.org. They are all a blessing to me. Your study has touched the most inner parts of my heart. I can only say: I pray G_d bless you in ways beyond your imagination. HE already has!!! Reply

The Hero in you! Excellent lecture rabbi Bryski. I could only hope that I will be a hero to someone in His name and not for award or reward, but because it is the right thing to do! Reply

We are so proud Rabbi Bryski, we are very proud to know your father, may he be well to 120, and you did not exaggerate one iota regarding your father. I have known him and worked with him for many many years, and he stands out as one of my heroes as well. In listening to you, I am even more impressed. You must make him very very proud. I am enjoying all of your lectures on line. Reply

May we all be heroes While listening I laughed, I cried, was filled with thankfulness for G-d, because I was allowed to listen to this lecture. And my wish for all of us, who listened, that we should reach our goal, to be what G-d wanted us to be.
Thank you so much, Rabbi Bryski!!!
And thank you, people of Chabad, who made this possible for us! Reply

Hero for life This was truly very mindful talk of what was and is the sacrifice of good common heroes. I see in the world of Jewish culture compared to trees Rabbi Moshe Bryski is surely one that benefited from old growth forestry . I too like the idea of the old growth protecting the new growth for the survival of the ways of the Torah. Deep down this has touched my soul so Rabbi please be refreshed and ready to start a new day and hopes for a new hero. Reply
