Mazal Tov to Shaina Esther Ezagui
celebrating her Bat Mitzvah
This Shabbat is Chai (the 18th of) Elul, the birthday of both the Baal Shem Tov (founder of the Chasidic movement) in 5458-1698 and the Alter Rebbe, Rabbi Shneur Zalman, founder of Chabad Chasidism in 5505-1745.
In the same way that the Chasidic movement revitalized Jewish life and introduced a new path in the service of G-d, so too does Chai Elul ("chai" - from the Hebrew word meaning "life") introduce an element of liveliness and vitality into our Divine service in the month of Elul, the main theme of which is repentance.
A basic fundamental of Chasidut is the joyful service of G-d. As surprising as it may seem, Chasidic philosophy teaches that even the mitzva of teshuva (repentance) should be approached with happiness rather than trepidation. If all of the Torah's mitzvot should be fulfilled with joy, how much more so the mitzva of teshuva, which is so great it has the power to perfect all other commandments!
At first glance, the pairing of teshuva with joy appears unrealistic. Repentance is serious business: conducting an honest assessment of one's past behavior, feeling remorse for one's misdeeds, and begging G-d for forgiveness for transgressing His will. How are we to do this out of a sense of joy?
The answer is that joy, as defined by Chasidut, is not the opposite of seriousness. Joy does not mean frivolity, a life without responsibilities or mindless revelry. Rather, joy itself is serious business, a deep feeling created when a Jew contemplates the enormous merit he has to have been born Jewish, to be able to study G-d's Torah and to fulfill His commandments. When a Jew appreciates that he is never alone and that G-d is always with him, his joy becomes the impetus to draw even closer to the Infinite.
With Rosh Hashana approaching, what could make us happier than the knowledge that doing teshuva during Elul is easier than at any other time of year? For the gates of repentance are always open, and G-d always gives us the opportunity to return to Him.

The unlimited maximum, blessing, in doing.
A human being is generally divided into three parts. The head, body and legs. These three parts represent three distinct ways we go about our lives and we fulfill our G-dly mission here in this world. We must use our minds and understanding, we arouse our feelings and fire the emotions in our heart, and the faculty and capacity of action. To do and go places.
The commandments in the Bible are also divided into these three categories. One of the most important commandments in the Bible is to "Know the G-d of your fathers...". "Know this day ...that G-d is G-d in the heavens above and in the earth below, there is none other besides Him."
We are instructed to study and toil in our understanding of the Bible with our minds, "day and night." And many more commandments which are fulfilled with our brains and the proficiency to think.
There are commandments that are fulfilled with our heart and emotions. The two basic commandments underlying the fulfillment of all the others, is to love G-d, and to fear G-d. These two emotions form the basis and foundation for the performance of all other deeds in the Torah.
Another example of serving G-d with our heart. We are commanded to love each other, like ourselves.
Then there are the commandments that must be done whether we're with the program intellectually or emotionally. No matter what we think or how we feel when doing these deeds, we receive full reward for having done them, in deed.
When doing things with our minds and our hearts, everyone is on a different level. Some are more superficial than others, some appreciate much deeper the opportunity to have value in the eyes of G-d. Some care more, some care less.
However when it comes to deed and a commitment to do, no matter what, over there, everyone is exactly the same. It doesn't matter how the person thinks or feels since the deed is the same in someone who is intelligent and or someone who is not.
Let's take for example the deed of charity and kindness and the same is true for all the commandments performed in deed. No matter how a person feels, when assistance is offered to the needy, it's the same hundred dollars coming from a genius or coming from a simple person. Crossing the little old lady across the street is the same, no matter who is doing it.
The full limit and maximum of a human being, which is equal in everyone, is reached when "doing" the right thing.
Sometimes however one may wonder, how is it always possible to throw oneself entirely in the deed. It may happen that the mind and the heart stand in the way of a total commitment in deed. Therefore the Bible also tells us to recognize the limitations of the mind and the emotions, which ARE different in every person.
This is a world of deed. When it comes down to it, the only thing that matters and that takes us places, is the act of doing. By realizing how limited our minds really are and how unreliable many times our feeling really are, we conclude that no matter what the results have been, we must continue always doing.

Shabbat is over
Inspiration from the Lubavitcher Rebbe
Giving affects not only the one you give to, but also you, the giver.
Therefore, it's not only important how much you give, but how often. Each act of giving uplifts and purifies you a little more.
Keep a small charity box attached to the wall in a conspicuous place, and place a few coins in it every day. Keep one in your home and one in your office.
Ki Tavo begins, "When you will enter the land" refers to the Era of Moshiach, when every Jew will enter the Holy Land that G-d has promised to the Jewish people.
At that time, the Jews will surely conduct themselves in a way that will emphasize the holiness of the land and its connection to the Jewish people.
From the Land of Israel, the Redemption will spread throughout the world and to all nations.
There will be peace among nations as the prophet declared,
"Nation will not lift up sword against nation."
There will be no more war and G-dliness will be drawn down to every creation in the world.
This Era will be hastened by the Jews' efforts to prepare themselves to greet Moshiach, studying about his coming and anticipating his coming at every moment.
(The Rebbe, 17 Elul, 5751-1991)

Counts the most.
Fast growing fruits.
And it shall be, when you come into the land...and you shall take of all the fruit of the earth...and put it in a basket... and you shall go to the priest (Deut. 26:1-3)
Fourteen years elapsed after the Jewish people entered the land of Israel until they were able to fulfill the second half of the verse - the bringing of their first fruits to Jerusalem.
Seven years were spent in conquering the entire land from its inhabitants; seven more years were spent dividing the land among the 12 tribes.
Our generation, which will very soon enter the promised land with the coming of Moshiach, will not need to wait any period of time before we are able to bring our first fruits to the Holy Temple.
Not only will there be no need to conquer and distribute the land, but the fruits themselves will grow with such rapidity that their harvesting will take place simultaneously with their planting.
(Sichot Kodesh, 5751)
