    ****Dvar Torah for Sunday****

    Parshas Bashalach

    The Privilege of Mitzvos (by me)

    The meat, at night, would show them that HaShem took them out of Egypt. The bread, in the morning, on the other hand, would show them the honor of HaShem.

    How are we to understand this?

    Hilchos Krias Shema She’al Hamitah

    1. When one removes one’s shoes at night one should untie and remove the left shoe first.

    Shulchan Aruch w/Mishnah Brurah 2:5 MB8

    2. One should not sleep in one’s regular clothes, and one should not place one’s clothes under the pillow {as this will cause one to forget one’s Torah learning}. Kitzur Shulchan Aruch 71:5

    Parnassah Self-Help

    There are many ideas brought by our Chazal regarding how one can improve one’s Parnassah from Hashem. All these segulos involve the strengthening of one’s Emunah in Hashem, and/or diligence in the performance of a particular mitzvah, whereby one may expect Hashem to act in kind, midah k’neged midah (measure for measure). Inasmuch as we are living at a time when many are finding their financial situation more difficult than ever, each day we will discuss one Parnassah self-help technique mentioned by Chazal.

    The Power of Emes – Truth. One should scrupulously adhere to the truth in all situations in life, and Hashem will provide him with Parnassah. Sefer Hamidos Hatzlacha:14, Likutei Eitzos Parnassah:26, Imrei Pinchas R’ Pinchas M’koritz Emes:11, Hanhagos Tzaddikim Parnassah:5


    Of the 613 Mitzvos, there are Six Constant Mitzvos. Rather than requiring the performance of a certain action, these mitzvos are a state of being, of living with the reality of God’s existence. The Six Constant Mitzvos are:

    * Believe there is a God.

    * Don’t believe in other gods.

    * Believe God is one.

    * Love God.

    * Fear God.

    * Don’t be misled by your heart and eyes.

    Imagine what it would be like if your food was directly connected to your religiosity. You would then see that your relationship with Hashem was the same as your food. You would see that your life and sustenance was dependent upon your relationship with Him.

    This was the lesson of the manna.

    The manna was their food and it was directly connected to their observance of the ratzon HaShem.

    Hilchos Krias Shema She’al Hamitah

    In the previous Halacha we stated that when removing shoes at night one should simply remove the left shoe first, and then the right. Many readers emailed asking if in fact one should first untie the right, then untie and remove the left, and then remove the right. We therefore clarify: that is not the opinion of the Shulchan Aruch. The SA (2:5) states simply remove the left and then the right. This understanding of the SA is accepted by the Piskei Tshuvos 2:7, S’U Oz Nidbiru 5:26, and S’U Tiferes Odom 3:1, and Birrur Halacha Tinyana who states that this is the correct psak according to the simple reading of all the Achronim.

    After saying Krias Shema one should say the following pesukim and tefilos mentioned by the Shulchan Aruch (printed in most siddurim) which protect a person, followed by Hamapil;

    a) (Vehi Noam etc., &) Yoishev Besaiser Elyon etc.

    b) Hashem Moh Rabu Tzoroy etc.

    c) Boruch Hashem Bayom etc.

    d) Vayomer Hashem El Hasoton etc.

    e) Hashem Shom’recha etc.

    f) Biyad’cha Afkid Ruchi etc.

    g) Yevorechicha Hashem V’Yishmirecha etc. (according to some, say 3 times)

    h) Hashkivainu etc. (from Maariv – without the beracha at the end)

    Shulchan Aruch w/Mishnah Brurah 239:1 MB9

    Parnassah Self-Help

    Segulah for Parnasah – For This Tuesday – Parshas Hamon

    Reb Menachem Mendel M’Riminov (1755-1815, one of four primary talmidim of The Noam Elimelech) writes in Lechem Avirim that saying Parshas Ha’mon (Shnayim Mikroh V’Echod Targum – Hebrew twice and the Aramaic once) on Tuesday of Parshas Be’Shalach, (from Perek 16, Possuk 4 until Shevi’i) is a Segulah for Parnasah. Parshas Hamon can be found in most siddurim after tefillas Shachris, or Click this link for the complete text of Parshas Ha’mon: ParshasHamonLink

    {The power of Emunah through understanding of the Parshas Hamon is discussed in Yalkut Shimoni Shemos 17: 247 & 258}

    here’s a devar torah on something that i’m currently working on in the area of improvment, working on saying it with more kavana-thinking of the meaning while while saying it from a text not by heart!! it’s on asher yatzar!!!

    “Asher Yatzar”

    *****************

    Elokai neshama” is a berakha which does not start with “barukh.” Here are the possible reasons:

    1) It is a berakha of thanksgiving on the return of our soul to us, and berakhot of thanksgiving never start with “barukh.”

    2) It is adjacent to “asher yatzar” and as such does not need to start with “bracha.”

    3) According to the gemara it is the first bracha of the morning and it is to be feared that one would begin reciting it while still sleepy and lack the proper focus. Its beginning was therefore extended to ensure that one is completely alert before the “brachos” at the end.

    “Asher Yatzar”

    ************************

    When is one obligated to say “asher yatzar”?

    It is said at any time of day after relieving oneself – even the smallest amount, for that too requires thanksgiving (Bais Yosef ).

    What if one delayed reciting the bracha? Much ink has been spilled about this issue. The Nimukei Yosef (Pesachim 46a) wrote:

    “That which was said [in the gemara] that netilat yadayim must be done even if one must walk a parsa in order to find water, that refers to one who relieves himself and must therefore wash his hands in order to say ‘asher yatzar.’ And it does not matter that this means a delay in his recital of the berakha, since it is not a berakha on a mitzva or a berakha on food but rather a berakha of praise and thanksgiving.”

    Others provided different time periods. The Ben Ish Chai (Vayeitzei 12) ruled that one may still say the bracha up to half an hour later.

    In practice, one should say the bracha immediately, both because the obligation begins immediately and one must not delay it without a good reason, and because once one feels a need to relieve himself again he has lost the opportunity to say this bracha (since he may now say only one bracha after relieving himself twice). If he did delay, it appears that he can still say it for seventy-two minutes, which is a Rishonim-era opinion (the Nimukei Yosef), and in fact those Acharonim who disagree never saw this opinion!!!!!!!!!

    This is L’Illuy Nishmas my grandmother (Yehudis Dasha Bas Zev) whose Yarzheit is today, the 9th of Shvat.

    (Mod, if you want to have this as the Tuesday d’var torah and you’ll give Wednesday that is fine, also if you want me to give another so we have one for Wed, that is fine too).

    (nossond, hope this is not your d’var torah for next week)

    R’ Shimon Schwab inquires about the placement of a particular passuk in this weeks Parsha. In between the Shira of Az Yashir and the Shira of Miriam and the women, the Torah tells us: ?? ?? ??? ???? ????? ???????, ???

    (Rashi says that it was because Paroh and his people were chasing, therefore Miriam and the other women took musical instruments)

    Nevertheless, why the interruption?

    The Gemarra in Sotah says that it was in the zechus of the righteous women that Klal Yisroel escaped mizraim. R’ Schwab says that we can even say that durin the miracle at the Yam that the Women had a higher level of Emunah and Bitachon then the men.

    The men only said their Shira after ???? ????? ??-?????, ?? ??-??? ???. Only after the men saw that the Mitzrim were dead did they say shira (they were afraid that the same way they went in, so too the mitzrim, and the same way they’d come out, so too the mitzrim). And only ??, only once that fear was calmed, then ????-??? ???? ????? ??-????? ????, were they able to say their shira.

    The women, however, said shira once ?? ?? ??? ???? ????? ???????, ???. Since they did not have the same fear as the men, and they were able to recognize the fact that a ?? was occurring and would continue to occur to provide them with salvation. Thus they were able to say their shira before the men did.

    This is the lesson of the interruption of the one passuk.

    GRATITUDE

    There is a custom amongst some people on Shabbos Shirah to save the leftovers from their Shabbos seuda in order to scatter them outside for the birds. The reason behind this custom goes back to the receiving of the manna in the wilderness.

    For going and gathering the bread, the birds are deserving of this reward as an expression of our gratitude.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    The rest are our my thoughts (so feel free to stop reading at this point)

    While on the subject of gratitude, perhaps we can examine this a little further. We feed the current generation of birds as a thank you for what a few birds did 3,321 years ago, how much more so do we need to show appreciation for more recent events.

    We need to remember to express gratitude to our parents, and our grandparents.

    We have to remember to thank our children when they do something for us.

    We need to show appreciation to the Rebbi(s) who we appointed as a shaliach to educate our children.

    We need have gratitude for all of our Rabbonim.

    We should say thank you to those whom we come into contact with that provide a service for us from the bagger at the grocery store to the doctor.

    Do we remember to say thank you to the one who shops, cooks, and serves the meals?

    Most importantly, do we remember to sincerely thank the One above who provides us with all our needs at all times and in all situations?
