Gedolim pictures on the wall of a beautiful kitchen. Rav Kanievsky, Rav Shteinman, Rav Finkel

My wife went away for 2 weeks to visit her family.

She left us with everything we needed. Freezer packed, tasks defined, schedule, phone numbers and everything that we might need to get through.

We knew what had to be done and how to do it. We had done it before.

It should have gone smoothly, all according to plan. Right?

Well it did… mostly… I pat myself on the back for that part.

But with all the unexpected events life throws at us and the constant yetser hora to cut corners, it didnt go 100% perfectly.

Even if nothing changed and we did the same tasks each day, having someone around reminding us, and being there for us would make all three difference in those unexpected times.

Once she came back we were all so relieved.

Having someone to talk with, consult with and to help us along the way was critical.

Lehavdil like our Rabbonim and our Gedolim

We all know what we need to be doing and how to do it.

But having our Rabbonim around and having pictures of gedolim on our walls helps us so much.

With unexpected events we have someone to consult with and someone to inspire us.

When our yetser hara comes out we can look at our saintly Gadolim on the wall and regain our strength and commitment to do the right thing.

We cannot weather the road of a Torah-observant Jew without them.
