Wednesday Apr 29, 2020

To understand what's happening today in current events, and to understand yourself better in the midst of the pandemic and subsequent limitations and difficulties, let's look at three types of people who encounter an obstacle in the road. They're driving to an urgent meeting in a neighboring city and all of a sudden, they discover that a whole section of the road they're travelling on has been washed away in a rain-storm flash-flood from the previous night.

Vertigo is a term that jet pilots use to describe spatial disorientation. When a pilot approaches the sound barrier, strange things can occur, especially on a clear-day's flight over water. The pilot is liable to become disoriented and to confuse the blue of the sea with the blue of the sky, and vice versa. Here's the good news: the way a pilot learns to avoid vertigo is the same exact way we can learn to cope in these ever-challenging times.

The twelfth of our Thirteen Principles of Emuna requires us all to eagerly anticipate Moshiach. I don't think that there's anyone, religious or not, who doesn't want Moshiach, so where is he? Why doesn't he come already? A lot of people are talking about Coronavirus as a catalyst for Moshiach, but is there any truth in that? Let's find out...

Today's podcast is entitled is a vital answer to what many people are asking now in the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic about how much should we be putting effort into doing everything that the medical authorities tell us to do and how much we should be relying on faith and trust, what we call emuna and bitachon.

It's no coincidence that the Coronavirus and its restrictions hit us at the exact time when we're supposed to be preparing full-speed for Passover. What's the message that Hashem is conveying to us and what does one have to do with the other?
