This weeks Words of Prayer, Words of Kindness is prepared in the merit of sweetening the decree for Am Yisrael. During the month of Adar is supposed to be a time of Redemption. There has been enough this month. Hashem is clearly not happy, may He receive our heartfelt prayers, may the words of Torah and Tefillah inspire us to do complete Teshuvah and may we merit the Final Redemption IMMEDIATELY.
Shmiras HaLashon Thought
Hashem said to Israel: "My beloved children, what do I ask of you? Only that you love one another and respect one another (Tana Dvei Eliyahu Rabbah ch 28)
"Whoever sins but is then embarrassed that he sinswill be forgiven" (Berachot 12b) Thus if a person wants to repent and is genuinely embarrassed by his sins, he then comes closer to Hashem.
A commentary to Tehillim 2:11 "Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling"
Although it is in G-d's power to punish you with rods and scorpions, that is not what He desires. His will is that you repent. (Meam Loez)

Thank you everyone for your kindness.
Have you been enjoying these emails? Did you know that Chessed Ve'Emet are an organization devoted to acts of goodness and kindness. Currently we act in a private capacity due to lack of funds to operate as a registered Non Profit Organization. Ideally we would like to be able to set up and register our organization in order to be able to do so much more. If you feel you are gaining from what we are doing, or would be able to gain even more from our further activities and wish to provide the funds to help us make this a reality or know of somebody who would be prepared to aid us in this project, please email either Rabbi Eliyahu or Shoshanah
We do have one name from todays events on our Tehillim list. If anyone has more names, please let us know.
May we hear only good news for Am Israel, a good that is revealed, visible and manifest.
