Purim Campaign - Nachal Novea Mekor Chochma

Received via e-mail from Nachal Novea Mekor Chochma:

If your Yom Kippur was not so uplifting this year, Rebbe Nachman of Breslev will show that the upcoming day of Purim can turn everything around. This is because, according to Rebbe Nachman, Purim is on an even higher level than Yom Kippur.

On Yom Kippur we abstain from all worldly pleasures to ascend and become close to Hashem. It is the opposite on Purim, since specifically through our drinking and rejoicing, Hashem descends to us. His Divine Presence reaches down to the lowest depths and touches everyone.

Fulfilling the special mitzvah to drink wine in a holy mindset—to simply be able to merge with our Creator, it is possible to achieve an even higher level than on Yom Kippur. Because of this, Rebbe Nachman says to abandon all negativity and be very happy on Purim, and rejoice with Hashem. Our job is to have simple faith in Hashem and believe in His holy tzaddikim.

Prepare for this special day and beg the Almighty to help us take full advantage of the holy opportunity on Purim.


Rabbi Efraim Kenig & Rabbi Yaakov Klein
