Making Every Minute Count - How to Get Written In the Book of Life

Thanks to my friendly neighborhood Aish Kodesh friend, I'm presenting to you Rav Moshe Weinberger's Shabbos Shuva Drasha audio. Rav Moshe Weinberger, from Kehillas Aish Kodesh in Woodmere, NY has been advised by Tzaddikim, as I understand it, that he should give drashas, that are normally given on Shabbos, on weekdays to allow more people to attend. So here is the audio of the Shabbos Shuva Drasha. You can click here to listen to the audio on the embeded player:

And you can click on THIS LINK to download the shiur from Aish Kodesh's download page!

Update: Anti-Ma'aris Ayin Announcement: I have received permission from Aish Kodesh to post the embeded player for Rav Weinberger's shiurim, as long as I link Aish Kodesh's website for the actual downloads. And as you can see above, that it what I have done. May the Rav's words enter our hearts and assist us in doing teshuva!

Actually, the drasha is posted on the Aish Kodesh site as well. Currently it is available as FREE on the Aish Kodesh. It could be that Dixie Yid either has permision to post, or if a donation has been made to Aish Kodesh to cover several downloads, it would really be the same thing as if one purchased the mp3 from the shul.

Also, not that I'm a bukki in Intellectual Property, but if the drasha is in WAV format it might be considered a different audio file than that the actual MP3 that is available online.
I actually listened to part of the drasha via Dixie Yid and as I was listening, I got an email from Aish Kodesh about the download that was made available due to people like myself who tried to teleconference the drasha Motzai Shabbos, but were unable to listen in due to tech issues (the same thing happened in 2005- I was actually at the drasha then went online that Sunday morning and the download was available for free due to tech issues).

Just my 8 cents...

For the record, anon 9:48 isn't totally off base in his/her concerns. However, you'll notice that the wav file is no longer available from the off-site hosting spot. The download link leads directly to Aish Kodesh's website. And as for the embeded player, I have been in communication with the chairman of the board at Aish Kodesh and he has told me that as long as I link to the Aish Kodesh site for downloading, that he has no problem with me having the embeded player. So anon 9:48 concerns are definitely addressed. (Although I could do without the sarcasm.) :-)

I would ask that friendly neighborhood person to also edit and correct this bibliography.

tnx

I don't think that link for wikipedia worked for me. I didn't see an article there at all, much one that needed correcting or editing... unless you meant that he should write an entry for the first time. Let me know if I had the correct link and I'll pass it on to him, though he'll probably see your comment as well.

Sounds like Dixie Yid found a good solution to the downloading issue.

BTW, sarcasm never comes off the way we would like it to online! :)

are you sure you got it right? yes you linked the site but you still have it available to listen for free from your site. Why should I pay the Shul if I can get it from you for nothing?
You might want to clarify that you go it straight.....

DixieYid said...

Yes, I'm sure I got it right. I have explicit permission to post the embeded audio player.

As for your svora, the embeded player doesn't offer near as much value as a downloadable wav or mp3 file. The embeded player can only be listened to while you are on the computer. But the dowloadable mp3 can be listened to when you're offline, and on your mp3 player, which makes it portable, which is how most people choose to listen.
