Urgent Tehillim Request

This URGENT Tehillim request was sent to me 7 hours ago. Please read the following thought on Guarding ones tongue and say some Tehillim for Arye Leib ben Chanah Lissel, a little baby of a few months old who went unconscious after getting caught in a crib.

I do not know where this baby is located or any other info. If anyone hears, or hears an update on this babelle, please email me.

Jewel Gathering: " It is worthwhile to study the laws of Lashon Hara even if this will only help you to refrain from speaking Lashon Hara for a brief period of time. If you were given an opportunity to gather diamonds and other jewels, you would be overjoyed to do so even if you could only take a few. Your attitude towards guarding your speech should be similar, since the eternal reward for observing this mitzvah is so immense. In actuality, however, if you will resolve to refrain from speaking Lashon Hara entirely and not only for a short time, you will be successful." (From the book "Guard Your Tongue - Adapted from the Chofetz Chaim.

Chassidic Thought related to jewels and diamonds:

In his later years, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson the 7th Lubavitcher Rebbe would spend his Sundays giving out a dollar or a few dollar bills and a brachah or eitza to Jews (sometimes non-Jews would come by too). Jews came from all over and lined up for hours to speak to the Rebbe for just a few moments and receive their brachah and dollar bill to be given to Tzeddakah as the kli to receiving their brachah. During this time, the Rebbe did not take any breaks, not for the bathroom or to eat or drink.

On one particular Sunday, an older woman who had been standing for several hours waiting for her turn, asked the Rebbe how he managed. She was concerned that at his age he might get tired from standing for 8 hours at a time. When the Rebbe heard her concern he responded: "how can one get tired when counting diamonds?"

To the Lubavitcher Rebbe, every Jew is like a diamond. As we learned in the brief thought sent out for the pre-Shabbos reminder, Hashem loves every Jew like an only child born to elderly parents in their old age. To Hashem, every Jew is a priceless Jewel. May this thought help us to treat every Jew we encounter TODAY with loving kindness, care and respect, with words of blessing and upliftment and may our efforts and Tehillim provide the merit necessary for little Arye Leib ben Chanah Nissel to have an immediate and complete recovery. May he grow up to serve Hashem with passion and untiring avoda and may he understand all apsects and levels of Torah and become a Gaon in Torah. May he give his parents, grandparents and all his family much Nachas always. May his recovery be the final gift required to bring Moshiach immediately.

Have a wonderful day and thank you for taking the time to care about a little Jewish baby boy.


Please join our International Tehillim Group, uniting Jewish women around the world through reciting Tehillim every Shabbos from wherever they are during daylight hours. Our target is 1000 Jewish women in the group, more would be wonderful. We need a little over 850 Jewish women to reach our target.
