"Barech Aleinu": A Reorientation to Prayers for Parnasa - Audio Shiur

Reb Yerachmiel's latest Chaburah from the Baltimore Community Kollel Tefillah Chaburah is now online!

In this latest audio shiur, Reb Yerachmiel provides an introduction to berchas "Barech Aleinu" in Shemoneh Esrei, the bracha in which we beseech Hashem for our basic financial needs and for much more. With the backdrop of the old adage that "Money can't buy happiness", and by refuting the often related remark that "Money can't buy happiness, but it sure doesn't hurt", Reb Yerachmiel utilizes the simple pshat of another livelihood-oriented tefillah, the special addition to Shema Koleinu, to help reorient us to Chazal's intended focus of prayers for parnasa, and in that way to feel comfortable and confident in asking Hashem "for the gold"!
