Lichvod/Dear Klal Yisrael
I heard a shiur
that inspired me to write this. I thank Hashem for letting me hear the shiur and for letting me write/share this. It should
be a zechus for everyone that Hashem should have rachamim on all of us answer all bakashos l'tov and may we be all zoche to
sing the shir chadesh b'mehera byameinu AMEN!!!!!!!
Q. Why was the punishment
of the meraglim that we got so severe, no other punishment was so bad, we are still suffering for it till today? Why
after klal Yisrael saw so many miracles, saw the splitting of the the yam suf, heard the Aseres Hadibros from Hashem. Wow
from Hashem. They learned Torah from Moshe Rabeinu-Miriam. What made them say (2-4). Why is so important to always remember
First read this
The People Rebel 1 That night
all the people of the community raised their voices and wept aloud. 2 All the Israelites grumbled
against Moses and Aaron, and the whole assembly said to them, "If only we had died in Egypt! Or in this desert! 3 Why is the LORD bringing us to this land only to let us fall by the sword? Our wives and children
will be taken as plunder. Wouldn't it be better for us to go back to Egypt?" 4 And they said
to each other, "We should choose a leader and go back to Egypt."
Then Moses and Aaron fell facedown in front of the whole Israelite assembly gathered there. 6
Joshua son of Nun and Caleb son of Jephunneh, who were among those who had explored the land, tore their clothes 7
and said to the entire Israelite assembly, "The land we passed through and explored is exceedingly good. 8
If the LORD is pleased with us, he will lead us into that land, a land flowing with milk and honey, and will give it to us.
9 Only do not rebel against the LORD. And do not be afraid of the people of the land, because
we will swallow them up. Their protection is gone, but the LORD is with us. Do not be afraid of them."
10 But the whole assembly talked about stoning them. Then the glory of the LORD
appeared at the Tent of Meeting to all the Israelites. 11 The LORD said to Moses, "How long
will these people treat me with contempt? How long will they refuse to believe in me, in spite of all the miraculous signs
I have performed among them? 12 I will strike them down with a plague and destroy them, but I
will make you into a nation greater and stronger than they."
Moses said to the LORD, "Then the Egyptians will hear about it! By your power you brought these people up from among
them. 14 And they will tell the inhabitants of this land about it. They have already heard that
you, O LORD, are with these people and that you, O LORD, have been seen face to face, that your cloud stays over them, and
that you go before them in a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night. 15 If you put
these people to death all at one time, the nations who have heard this report about you will say, 16
'The LORD was not able to bring these people into the land he promised them on oath; so he slaughtered them in the desert.'
17 "Now may the Lord's strength be displayed, just as
you have declared: 18 'The LORD is slow to anger, abounding in love and forgiving sin and rebellion.
Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation.'
19 In accordance with your great love, forgive the sin of these people, just as you have pardoned
them from the time they left Egypt until now."
LORD replied, "I have forgiven them, as you asked. 21 Nevertheless, as surely as I live and
as surely as the glory of the LORD fills the whole earth, 22 not one of the men who saw my glory
and the miraculous signs I performed in Egypt and in the desert but who disobeyed me and tested me ten times- 23
not one of them will ever see the land I promised on oath to their forefathers. No one who has treated Me with contempt will
ever see it. 24 But because my servant Caleb has a different spirit and follows Me wholeheartedly,
I will bring him into the land he went to, and his descendants will inherit it. 25 Since the Amalekites
and Canaanites are living in the valleys, turn back tomorrow and set out toward the desert along the route to the Red Sea."
26 The LORD said to Moses and Aaron: 27
"How long will this wicked community grumble against me? I have heard the complaints of these grumbling Israelites. 28 So tell them, 'As surely as I live, declares the LORD, I will do to you the very things I heard
you say: 29 In this desert your bodies will fall—every one of you twenty years old or more
who was counted in the census and who has grumbled against Me. 30 Not one of you will enter the
land I swore with uplifted hand to make your home, except Caleb son of Jephunneh and Joshua son of Nun. 31
As for your children that you said would be taken as plunder, I will bring them in to enjoy the land you have rejected. 32 But you—your bodies will fall in this desert. 33 Your children
will be shepherds here for forty years, suffering for your unfaithfulness, until the last of your bodies lies in the desert.
34 For forty years—one year for each of the forty days you explored the land—you will
suffer for your sins and know what it is like to have Me against you.' 35 I, the LORD, have spoken,
and I will surely do these things to this whole wicked community, which has banded together against Me. They will meet their
end in this desert; here they will die."
36 So the men
Moses had sent to explore the land, who returned and made the whole community grumble against him by spreading a bad report
about it- 37 these men responsible for spreading the bad report about the land were struck down
and died of a plague before the LORD. 38 Of the men who went to explore the land, only Joshua
son of Nun and Caleb son of Jephunneh survived.
39 When Moses
reported this to all the Israelites, they mourned bitterly. 40 Early the next morning they went
up toward the high hill country. "We have sinned," they said. "We will go up to the place the LORD promised."
41 But Moses said, "Why are you disobeying the LORD's
command? This will not succeed! 42 Do not go up, because the LORD is not with you. You will be
defeated by your enemies, 43 for the Amalekites and Canaanites will face you there. Because you
have turned away from the LORD, He will not be with you and you will fall by the sword."
44 Nevertheless, in their presumption they went up toward the high hill country, though neither Moses
nor the ark of the LORD's covenant moved from the camp. 45 Then the Amalekites and Canaanites
who lived in that hill country came down and attacked them and beat them down all the way to Hormah.]
said why are you crying, you want something to cry about.

Watch and/or learn what Hashem did for us in Mitzrayim

KOFUY TOV (ungratefulness)
Not thanking Hashem enough for everything
He does for each and everyone of us.
We have to stop and think about what
we thank Hashem for. Then we have to work on ourselves, all the time, to change this middah/middos of being kofuy tov. A person
can see the biggest miracle in the world and still c'v fall. He says if we would just keep thanking Hashem all problems would
be solved. That is the tikkun we are here to do as soon as we do Mashiach will come,and all problems personal-world etc. will
be all gone. Because all the crying for nothing, leads to depression, feeling down, bad thoughts c'v and that leads to a lack
of faith/bitachon not trusting in Hashem c'v. (Ask yourself has doing/feeling like this helped you up to now if you answered
NO then try just thanking Hashem). He says when a person feels like that Hashem closes all windows in His palace and even
has a malach standing there to make sure no t'filah come in just incase of an opening. BUT when a person starts to thank Hashem,
Hashem opens all windows and even has the walls taken down so all t'filos reach Him. That person will see so many yeshuos
he wont even know what to do with them, a person wont even have to ask for anything Hashem tells the malachim just keep giving
So this tisha b'av (and everyday) which will one day be a joyous
day(hopefully this one amen) say ''I'm sorry to Hashem for being Kofuy Tov, look for things to be grateful for no matter
how big or small. Ask Hashem to help you with this. Just keep thanking Hashem. B'zechus this may Hashem have much rachamim
on each of us may Hashem send a refuah,yeshua, bracha and hatzlacha, answer all bakashos l'tov and bring us Home so we can
be that nation He wants us to be
AN AM KADOSH!!!!! AMEN!!!!!
This is how the papers should read "Extra Extra" read all about it:
To all of Klal Yisrael
Have an easy fast.
Please, Please Hashem turn this
into a Yom Tov for us.
Shabbos Kodesh is coming!
Have an easy fast.
Hashem let this Tisha B'av
our last sad one.
