No one said it was Easy – Fifth Night of Chanukah

Raising kids in general is not easy, try adding on 613 commandments and doing it with joy.

Before we continue, you have to realize that what you are trying to do as a father is beyond comprehension in this day in age. It’s a special time indeed, more and more countries are doing peace with Israel, and the Shomron is prospering. More and more Jews are returning to their faith, their roots, their inheritance in the land of Israel.

But what about the next generation, you have all the stress of bills, and making your marriage work, how do you bring the traditions to your own children? Well you are not alone

Now that your pumped up, just remember take it one breath at a time. You and your kids don’t need to be the biggest tzaddikim in one day. Just start by making peace your priority. Try your best to keep anger out of the house, and do what you can. A mitzvah while angry is worthless, while a mitzvah though not perfect but done in peace is worth more than anything.
