Unique Audio Shiur: Eternal Heroes: "Al Ha'Tzaddikim"
Presenting Reb Yerachmiel's most recent Baltimore Community Kollel Tefillah Shiur, from Sunday night January 25th, 2009, and the fourth shiur on berchas "Al Ha'Tzaddikim" in Shemoneh Esrei.
In this very unique shiur, Reb Yerachmiel "opened the floor" to shiur attendees, who were asked to contemplate in advance and then present to the oiylam the following: who, amongst all of the Tzaddikim in the entire history of Yiddishkeit, is his primary inspiration, role model or even hero.
Indeed, Reb Yerachmiel reminded us that while this bracha is designed primarily as a tefillah on behalf of the righteous Jews of our generation, it is also an opportunity to consider how we might elevate ourselves to the level of Tzaddikim. Connecting to a tzaddik of the past or the present is an important component for, be'ezras HASHEM Yisbarach, molding ourselves into tzaddikim of the future!
Special Note: Reb Yerachmiel thanks all those who could not attend the shiur but who took the time and energy to provide their thoughts to Reb Yerachmiel in writing, and asks mechilah from each of you that he was unfortunately unable to share your thoughts with the oiylam due to time constraints. Tizku L'mitzvos!
