Information about what we are doing in our Motzai Shabbos chaburah, our avodah, and some bonus shiurim

 This week, we will IyH meet on our regular telephone conference line, on Tuesday and Thursday night at 930 pm NY  and Wednesday and Thursday morning at 630 am NY time (in addition to the motzai Shabbos chaburah). These four calls will be a maximum of ten minutes and will not be recorded- an opportunity to do our avodah together.

In our chaburah, we are learning 'Experiencing the Divine' by Rav Kalonymous Kalman Shapira, along with 'Getting to Know Your Feelings' and 'Bilvavi Mishkan Evneh' by Rav Itamar Schwartz.  

At present we are working on thoughts and how they effect our feelings- the moment of choice and how we can choose to sense Hashem in the moment by attaching our thoughts to Him and then, acting from that place of deveikus/attachment.

 We are also learning more about feelings and how they are in constant movement.  "Our emotions help us identify change..." They help us identify the movement (in our thoughts and in our hearts) that we are traveling (tahalich) from one moment to another.  We are using this information to learn how to use the da'as of the heart in order to sense Hashem in an even deeper way (IY'H).
 Below is a shiur given by Rabbi Schwartz for the women's chaburah-  how to speak to Hashem every minute (we have been discussing how to do this by beginning with gratitude - even for things we don't have yet that we want, then doing teshuva, then giving it all up to Hashem- telling Him that in truth we really only want to do His will).  If you would like to join his monthly women's group- please let me know.

As always, please see for phenomenal shiurim about the Tenth of Tevet. 

If you have any questions or would like a copy of any of our material, please email Shira at:

Love, aviva rus
