Mikvah Monthly Message

ROSH CHODESH TAMMUZ 5779

Dedicated in Memory of Rabbi Michael Stern

We are coming upon a two day Rosh Chodesh Tammuz, July 3 and 4.  Typically in America on July 4, we are used to celebrating with BBQs our American independence.  Oddly enough, this is the beginning of the 3 week period of mourning for the Jewish people.  In the month of Tammuz we mourn the breaching of the walls of Yerushalayim on the 17th of the month.  Among this tragedy, were others in Jewish history.  Moses smashed the Tablets, the daily sacrificial offerings in the Temple were discontinued, the Roman general Apostomos burned the sefer Torah and put an idol in the Temple.  The fighting of the Roman conquest over Jerusalem continued for 3 weeks until the 9th of Av, when the Holy Temple was set aflame and the Jewish people were ultimately dispersed from our Homeland.

We act like mourners during this time and do not have weddings, take a haircut, listen to music, and other joyful activities.  Tragically, we lost a great kiruv Rabbi in our community this past week.  Rabbi Michael Stern left us too soon.  He brought thousands of Jews closer to Judaism.  Just as we mourn the destruction of the Holy Temple in this time, we are also mourning the loss of a great Rabbi.  May his neshama have an Aliyah to the greatest heights, and may we merit to reunite with him once again with the coming of the Moshiach and rebuilding of our Third Temple.

We know that the destruction of the second temple was related to sinas chinam and the tikun to the building of the third Temple logically seems to be related to ahavas chinum.  Love of our fellow Jew for no reason whatsoever.  Ahavas chinam can start in the home.  Let's love and care for our marital partners just because they are our marital partners.  For no other reason than because Hashem put us together.  This is enough of a reason to do unlimited kindnesses for them.  By keeping our homes holy and filled with chessed, it will outpour into all of our lives, to all of our friends, and we should see the rebuilding of the Bais Hamikdash speedily in our days.

Thank you to Mrs. Ariel Liberman for sharing her words of inspiration with us.
