CS, when you take your maternity leave B’sha’a tova, will there be a substitute shlucha for the CR?January 27, 2019 3:09 pm at 3:09 pm #1668849
WTP I originally joined the CR when I had my son. Between the constant waking up through the nights and nursing, I found I had more time to spend on the forum… I’ve been a bit absent lately as I’ve been preparing for my baby and my birthday iyh (and finally got back into saying more tehillim daily which has been exciting) but probably will be more present by my maternity leave 😉January 27, 2019 3:27 pm at 3:27 pm #1668877
What kind of preparing for your birthday have you engaged in?January 27, 2019 4:36 pm at 4:36 pm #1668940
It’s been fun. I have this project where I memorise tehillim and Tanya to the tunes of lubavitcher niggunim to help me remember it better. They way I always have words of Torah I can say in the streets or when doing housework etc
Last year I databased all the niggunim I’ve used so I won’t keep reusing ones I’ve used already. This year I realized that if I work in advance I can finish memorising the same number of prakim as I’m turning.
But it’s taking me some time because the nigun I have picked I didn’t know (Reb Michel Zlotchovers nigun) so I’m learning the nigun and the Tanya…
But I think it’s worth it because it’s a very special nigun. R Michel was a Talmid of the Baal Shem Tov and he took his nigun from heichal hashir in gan Eden. He said whoever sings his nigun and needs help, he’ll come and help them from above.January 27, 2019 4:45 pm at 4:45 pm #1668952
How many prakim have your already memorized?
Do you sing the Tanya while mopping the floor?January 27, 2019 6:00 pm at 6:00 pm #1668970
My husband mops the floorJanuary 27, 2019 7:30 pm at 7:30 pm #1668988
CS. i also mope the floor. did you get the idea from my wife? or did my wife get it from you?January 27, 2019 7:34 pm at 7:34 pm #1668983
Which housework do you do while singing Tanya?
Which one is correct/closest?January 27, 2019 7:49 pm at 7:49 pm #1668985
CS, very impressive about the tehilim and tanya. such a great thing to have divrei torah in your memory. and a tremendous thing for your baby, as the behaviour of the mother during pregnancy has an affect on the baby. (just a comment about memorizing tehilim by heart. we usually don’t say tora shebiksav by heart, with the exception of those parts that everyone knows by heart, like ashrei, krias shma etc. i’m sure you know this and checked it out. would be interesting to know more about it.).
About the nigun of R’ Michel Zlotchover. i am pretty sure that it was the Baal shem tov who said that He would help the one who is singing this nigun. maybe that’s what you meant.January 28, 2019 8:49 am at 8:49 am #1669201
Knaidlach if your wife is anything like me she got the idea to ask you from your unborn / nursing child who has an aversion to its mother doing strenuous work.January 28, 2019 8:49 am at 8:49 am #1669203
Food preparation, spraying counters, folding laundry

“CS, very impressive about the tehilim and tanya. such a great thing to have divrei torah in your memory.”
Agreed. It’s very much stressed in Hayom yom. I love when I see fellow murmurers on the street 🙂
“and a tremendous thing for your baby, as the behaviour of the mother during pregnancy has an affect on the baby.”
“(just a comment about memorizing tehilim by heart. we usually don’t say tora shebiksav by heart, with the exception of those parts that everyone knows by heart, like ashrei, krias shma etc. i’m sure you know this and checked it out. would be interesting to know more about it.).”
So I only heard of this after I stopped memorising tehillim anyway so as it wasn’t relevant I didn’t fully research it. However from what I do know, the problem is not from saying tehillim Baal peh (in fact see 7 and 11 teves in Hayom yom where the Frierdiker Rebbe specifically encourages saying tehillim baal peh, along with Tanya, chumash and mishnayos to be saved from kaf hakela and to purify the air outside) but from specifically intending to memorise it instead of it being a natural process (although Hayom yom 11 teves does encourage having any of the above committed to memory but it could mean naturally… In any case tzorich iyun.)
“About the nigun of R’ Michel Zlotchover. i am pretty sure that it was the Baal shem tov who said that He would help the one who is singing this nigun. maybe that’s what you meant.”
Yeah you’re right. Thanks for the correction.January 28, 2019 3:22 pm at 3:22 pm #1669543
CS. thank you for your comments, especially the hayom Yom. and yes as you said Tsorich iyun.
(Though im not sure about the distinction between intentionally memorising or naturally).
My wife actually asked me to mope the floor not in connection with pregnancy or nursing. i will admit that at the beginning i wasn’t too happy about it, but i did accepted this task and realised that i should make things easier for her. she does cook and clean and do laundry and shope for the house AND go to work.January 28, 2019 4:46 pm at 4:46 pm #1669608
Now here’s a thread bringing out the best in us! Poppa Joe doing what he does best, Chabadshlucha doing what she does best (inspiring us)…January 28, 2019 4:46 pm at 4:46 pm #1669607
Well I’m glad you recognise that because (at least in my experience) it’s really only a help if done willingly or even better with a smile. It’s true. Women working takes up more time and takes off part of the husbands responsibility so it makes sense he should help with hers (although if it’s distasteful paying for a cleaner to do it is also an option.)January 28, 2019 7:04 pm at 7:04 pm #1669724
isn’t it better this way?January 28, 2019 7:04 pm at 7:04 pm #1669723
ITS REALLY ONLY A HELP IF DONE WILLINGLY
PAYING FOR A CLEANER TO DO IT IS ALSO AN OPTION
unfortunately we cant afford it now.
some wives ask their husbands to help them by asking them to leave the house for a while :). in one such case, the husband left the house and came back in 3 hours. his wife asked him why are you back? he answered: how much do you expect me to help?
