MyLife: Chassidus Applied – Episode 16 Airs Tonight at 8PM
Can a marriage survive a cheating spouse? While a person will never forget, can we forgive? What did Chassidus and the Rebbe say, except—of course—that it was forbidden?
Women have historically been responsible for housework and childrearing. Today, a woman’s role extends far beyond the home to make ends meet. Is it fair to expect women to double their capacity — working while taking on the brunt of childbearing and housework?
Other topics to be addressed in Sunday’s broadcast include: Is prayer meant to be personal or is it about parroting pre-scripted words? Is Avodas ha’Ttefilah (diligent prayer) relevant today—or only a thing for Chassidim of previous generations? How can you lift Tanya off the page and make it relevant in your life today? What can we say about teachers who don’t lead by example?
Tune in this Sunday night for the next episode of MyLife: Chassidus Applied, which will address these sensitive issues. This hour-long dose of insight is meant to inform, inspire and empower us by applying the teachings of Chassidus to help us face practical and emotional challenges and difficulties in our personal lives and relationships.
The topics in this Sunday’s hour-long broadcast will include:
Follow-Up: Unplanned children and immodest teachers
Making Tanya Practical
Is Avodas HaTefilah relevant today?
Personal Prayer – When, where and how? Or is it a lost art?
Infidelity and Forgiveness
MyLife: Chassidus Applied addresses questions that many people are afraid to ask and others are afraid to answer. When asked about the sensitive topics he has been addressing, Rabbi Simon Jacobson commented, “I understand that the stakes are high, but the silence and lack of clarity on matters plaguing the community can no longer go unaddressed. The stakes of not providing answers are even higher.”
The on-going series has provoked a significant reaction from the community, with thousands of people viewing each live broadcast and hundreds of questions pouring in. At the root of every question and personal challenge tackled by the series is the overarching question: Does Judaism have the answers to my personal dilemmas?
In inimitable “Jacobson-fashion”, the broadcast answers people’s questions in simple, clear language while being heavily sourced. Each episode is jam-packed with eye-opening advice from the Rebbeim, gleaned from uncovering surprising gems in their letters, sichos and maamorim that address our personal issues with disarming relevance. Simultaneously, Rabbi Jacobson is able to crystallize a concept quickly, succinctly, and poignantly for any level of listener.
All episodes are immediately available for viewing in the MLC’s archive and can be downloaded as MP3’s for listening on the go.
