I’m pretty beat, but I don’t want to miss a Torah Tuesday post, so I’ll give you some food for thought, and would love to hear what you have to say about it.
This past Motzei Shabbos my husband and I attended a big dinner, you know, with lots of speakers and some shmoozing as well. The guest speaker, Rabbi Aharon Feldman of Ner Yisroel in Baltimore, gave a very powerful speech. One thing which really stands out was that he asked us why we were frum. He mentioned that there are many nice aspects of being frum.
But he reminded us that we aren’t supposed to be frum because it makes us feel good. We’re supposed to be frum because we want to serve Hashem.
