      In the merit of this learning may Elisha ben Yehudis and Gavriel ben Yehudis each be blessed with complete safety, health, happiness, success, clarity, and only revealed good. 

      Friday 
      In this weeks Torah portion (Parshat Bo) the Israelites are liberated from slavery in Egypt. One can imagine the great feeling of liberation. The Torah points out "And to all the children of Israel no dog barked). Why is this important? Would it have been terrible if a dog barked when they were leaving? We learn from this that even though the irritation experienced would have been slight under the circumstances, it would have nevertheless been a blot on their joy. When someone experiences a joyous occasion, we should be careful not to say or do anything that would decrease their joy. 

      Shabbat 
      A person might have just bought a new house and feels very happy about it. At that time don't needlessly point out the drawbacks of that house. A person just got married and is very happy, don't voice any pessimistic comments that could cause a tinge of pain. Allow others to savor their good fortune.

      Create a beautiful, happy, and holy Shabbat!
