Breakfast with Elli – Sunday – 08/22/21 – 14 Elul 5781 – L’Dovid

[Music] is [Music] up [Music] yes [Music] is [Music] hey [Music] down [Music] [Music] mr president on this occasion of your birthday this lovely lady [Music] the is [Applause] you say [Music] so [Music] oh [Music] so [Music] i want to see your man uh [Music] breakfast with ellie [Music] [Music] i [Music] a [Music] good [Music] good morning and welcome to breakfast with ellie oops let me get rid of that i’m just having some little itsy bitsy issues here this morning but it’s good there we go all right that should do it oh my goodness yeah yeah don’t worry about me i’m i’m just having some some uh typical typical typical typical problems and here we go all right all right there we go should we start over good morning and welcome to breakfast with ellie it is sunday the 22nd day of august the 14th day of ello the torah portion is ki tavo hi yum yum today is the first day counting up towards shabbos and we’ve been learning the first aliyah it is uh 76 degrees and rainy cloudy but very little wind i’m very surprised the hurricane was downgraded to a tropical storm but still i was expecting some weather from it and we’re not we’re not getting that much weather so it’s kind of weird i know uh but i guess it’s good we don’t want bad weather right all right very good so that should be okay uh yeah i had a a crashy crash over here i had a little bit of a crashy crash and i lost some data but that’s okay we’ll figure it all out i hope all right let’s uh let’s get moving uh let’s say bro and go on [Music] all right you ready foreign very good very very very good pineappley all right okay moving on are you ready there you go how are you coming [Music] i take upon myself every single day to love my fellow friend in a very special way all right [Music] all right and now let us give sadaka [Music] that’s a doctor box i put it in the push key that’s the docker box i put it in the push key [Music] all right and now today in jewish history today is the art site of rabbi burkh murder ettinger of babrusk in 1852 he was a follower of the first three chabad rabbis the alta rabbi the mitchell rabbi and the three three rebbies he served as the head of the talmudic academy in vilna and then as a rabbi in babrusk a post that he filled for 50 years toward the end of his life he emigrated to israel to jerusalem where he passed away was known for his witty sayings and remark which reflected his sharp perception and deep wisdom and there’s a whole bunch of uh expositions on okay so if you want to read those go to dot org and read those [Music] it is important to use one’s god-given talent for good and here’s the rebbe speaking about that my brother yossi was a guitar player he was one of the most specialist guitar players [Music] and he created also a style and we played together we became more from so then we wrote to the rebel about our music my brother wrote in our name and we brought to the web inside the an album with pictures and articles about our band in the letter we wrote that we get to places that no rabbi could enter we have the ability to affect people over them with yiddish kind through the music my brother completed the letters of teaching [Music] [Music] always utilizing one’s talents for good the pianta band uh was a very very famous pia menta very famous band uh avi pimenta is still playing yes he is no longer with us said to say um they were very good friends they’re still well avi is still a very very good friend all right uh in the month of ello we know it is traditionally a time of introspection and stop taking uh the month of divine mercy and forgiveness where the king is in the field uh we sound the shofar every day as a call to repentance and we say three additional chapters of tehillim of the psalms today we say chapters 40 41 and 42. all right uh l is also a time to have your to fill in and your messages checked so if you haven’t done that yet uh twice in seven years uh their abbey was always very very big on uh checking them uh every year if you can uh if you’re not near a sofa uh please consult your local orthodox rabbi as to what to do and how to do it all right all right hi yum yum for today the 14th day of ello [Music] if you’re trying to sell something there are two ways to go about it there’s the more common type of advertisement that you’ll hear where they’ll extol the virtues of this product so buy this and it’ll make you so happy it’ll improve your quality of life you’ll be so glad that you bought this and then there is a different type of advertisement altogether where they use scare tactics if you don’t buy this then when the rainy day comes or when you get old you’re going to be in real trouble what is so revolutionary about chabad’s approach to outreach is that for the longest time the script the language of the traditional jew to the not-so-traditional jew was extremely negative it went something like this here are all the things that you’re doing really wrong and here are the consequences the terrible consequences of the mistakes that you are making but the problem with that negative type of advertising is that while some people do bite and will become your customers the vast majority of people will simply switch the channel why should i listen to this negative type of talk coming out of my radio if i can just switch to a different station where they’re broadcasting stuff that is so much more pleasant to listen to says today’s hayyomyo the instructions from the reber ashab went as follows stay away completely avoid attacking the other party attacking somebody else in spite of the fact that the other may be making lots of mistakes and we may be very capable of articulating those mistakes it’s still not a good idea because that is a waste of our resources we must spend our time and energy in building a model of the proper way to behave of the proper type of lifestyle and that is time and energy well spent building the proper model for ourselves and for everyone to see um is the objective that’s what we should be dedicating all of our resources to and that’s the way to go so let’s quit telling everybody all the mistakes they are doing and what’s wrong with them and show them instead how things are are properly done all right there are seven things that you can do to prepare for the high holidays during the month of ello let’s let’s start by saying the first thing you can do is look inwards it’s a chance to look inwards to reflect on how the year has gone till now and prepare spiritually for the high holidays uh learn more about the spiritual lessons of elo and you can do that at chabad.org each day of the month of ello except for shabbos and the last day of ello we sound the shofar as a call to repentance it’s like an alarm clock that is there to awaken our soul uh explore the reasons that we blow the shofar when writing a letter blessing each other by including the greeting kisiva of khasimatova may you be inscribed and sealed for a good year a little extra prayer is a powerful thing chapter 27 of the psalms that we say plus the three additional chapters that we say 40 41 and 42 today uh let’s see what else uh checking you’re filling in your mezuzah’s uh learning about the high holidays as we are are doing here uh and during the last week of ello days leading up to roshana we do the slichot prayer the penitential prayers on the first night they were recited at midnight and on the following days in the early morning now many sephardic jews start saying slichos at the beginning of the month of el the ashkenazi custom is to say it starting the saturday night before the holiday a week preceding the holiday and with that may we all be inscribed and sealed for a good year lashana tejava breaking news [Music] all right um fox news is now going to require all employees to enter their vaccination information status into a central database and they are requiring masking in confined spaces apple is going to delay the planned return of its employees to the offices until january 22nd at the earliest january in 2022 as the earliest um apple was due to welcome back staff into offices this fall before delaying its move to next year due to concerns over raising coronavirus cases and the delta variant it’s the latest move that could signal a more complex return to work plan for major u.s companies [Music] in sydney australia the lockdown has been extended through september and tougher measures to curb the coronavirus uh delta variant were imposed friday including a curfew and an outdoor mask mandate new york’s big concert in central park was cut short by lightning and bad weather there’s a sign if i ever saw one it shouldn’t have happened to begin with but it did uh uh news is light today so and now it is in this day and age glass is pretty much ubiquitous it’s an integral part of our smartphones high high-speed fiber-optic cables windows the list goes on and yet even though we’re surrounded by it scientists are still puzzled by glass and why it forms the way it does through studying glass researchers have realized there could be an ideal form that may never be attainable but they’re still on a quest to find it there are more types of glass than the silica variety you’re most familiar with glass is technically any rigid amorphous solid meaning its atoms and molecules aren’t arranged in an orderly structure but rather in whatever random arrangement they happen to be in when the material cooled and solidified it’s as though a liquid just stopped moving all of a sudden unlike ice where the water molecules tug on each other and lock themselves into a repeating crystal pattern as glass cools its molecules contract until they stop moving altogether and that’s weird because in theory if it were a liquid that has stopped flowing because it was cold you should be able to give it a squeeze and change its shape i would not recommend you squeeze glass to give this a try it’s rigid and it’ll cut you you may have heard that because of this glass is like an endlessly flowing liquid and that’s sort of true but only in the strictest sense one study from 2017 estimated that if a cathedral were to stand at room temperature for a billion years its glass would flow just a single nanometer another research team from spain examined samples of 110 million year old amber a naturally occurring variety of glass derived from tree sap and found that over its long existence it had become about two percent denser decades ago researchers came up with an idea if glass could still flow and settle then maybe it could reach a hypothetical ideal state where the randomly flowing molecules happen to arrange themselves as dense and orderly as possible this ideal glass could explain why glass is a liquid with molecules that can’t flow but to achieve it in reality through the usual method of cooling a liquid until it hardened meant cooling it impossibly or even infinitely slowly this would give the molecules a chance to settle into their lowest energy arrangement glass made this way would have entropy as low as a crystals paradoxically randomness could produce order ideal glass would have properties very different from the glass we’re used to for one it would have a lower heat capacity when cooled to near absolute zero non-ideal glass is thought to be riddled with two level systems bunches of molecules that can go back and forth between two equally stable arrangements near absolute zero even when crowded by surrounding molecules these two level systems can quantum tunnel between configurations absorbing heat in the process but if ideal glass is already in the most stable configuration possible there is no second form it can switch to so its heat capacity drops amazingly while we haven’t found the ideal glass we’re searching for we have gotten closer that’s thanks to a very different glass making technique that makes use of vapor deposition where glass is built one molecule at a time the result is ultra stable glass that’s not as orderly as the hypothetical ideal but still denser and more stable than any glass we’ve made before scientists are also searching for the perfect form of glass virtually thanks to advancements in computer processing power and modeling techniques simulations that look for the ideal arrangement have gotten exponentially faster in the end we may never be able to make ideal glass but we’re curious and we’re diligent and we’re going to keep trying you may have heard that old cathedral glass is thicker at the bottom because it’s sagged over time in reality that’s just due to the technique used to make the glass any other material mysteries you’d like us to cover let us

sponsors patreon.com the actors rabbi or breakfast with ali dot live slash tip jar okay uh let me just fix this because this is the wrong car show over here i know all right all right uh the first three parties of the book of deuteronomy devarim that we are in and a kev tavarim and akeb constitute the first three sections of moshe’s farewell address if you will to his people in which he chiefly exhorts them to continue to observe the torah’s commandments after they cross into the promised land the next three parshas were a shoftim and teixei are for the most part devoted to the second section of moshe’s farewell address his exposition of certain parts of the torah’s legal corpus that were already either presented in the preceding books of the torah or that only became relevant at this point on the eve of the people’s entry into the promised land and whose presentation was therefore deferred until now the president parsha the seventh parsha ki tavo marks the conclusion of this second section of moshe’s farewell address as well as the beginning of the third and final section his review of the covenantal bond between hashem and the jewish people this review will continue through the ensuing four parshas to the end of the book of devarim the first part of parsha’s kisavo the conclusion of moshe’s exposition of the torah’s legal corpus focuses on one single commandment the obligation to bring the first fruits of the harvest bikurim to the temple in jerusalem the question that naturally arises then is would it not have been more logical to place this lone commandment at the end of the preceding parsha having it conclude the legal section of moshe’s farewell address and then begin this parsha with the final section clearly the torah does nothing by chance so there must be some reason the last commandment to be discussed in moshe’s legal review is prefaced to his exposition of the covenantal bond between hashem and the jewish people as if it were chosen to set the tone for the entire exposition and thus effectively for the rest of the book and we’ll continue this tomorrow oh yeah in the first aliyah we are introduced to the mitzvah of bikurim the first fruits the requirement to bring one’s first fruits to the holy temple this mitzvah applies to fruits and produce grown in the land of israel and only those for which the land of israel is praised what are those the seven types the shiva meaning wheat barley dates figs pomegranates and olives again wheat barley dates figs grapes pomegranates and olives when in the temple the owner of shouting outside the owner of the fruits recites a brief thanksgiving prayer to hashem and presents the produce to the kohanim to the priests let’s start with our two minute rabbi [Music] jewish audio on kabad.org i don’t need not nothing from not nobody seems like the ideal existence to have enough money to not need any help to have enough scholarship to never have to ask a question to be able to live your life online and never have to interact with the unwashed masses yet in our parsha it tells us that hashem you have distinguished today to be a god for you and then it says hashem has distinguished you today to be for him a treasured people hashem tells us i want you to be my people and i want to be your god khasid once said to the rabbi i have no compassion no rahmanis on the rabbi the rabbit can bring mashiach on his own and there ever responded with some seriousness a rabbi only has the ability granted by the siddhim hashem makes himself need us and this is the highest form to need others not to insulate ourselves from others not to only serve others to be willing to allow others to serve us to interact with us to become one with another person to prepare ourselves for rosh hashanah we are reminded that hashem wants us asks us please with us declare before me verses of royalty so that i will in fact be your king not only are we in need of hashem hashem is in need of us not only are we needed to serve we need others and this the bringing together of disparate parts is the greatest illustration of the genuine infinity and oneness of hashem all right i like that rabbi barber has something for us [Music] an israeli police officer pulls over a teenager for speeding when he gets to the car he says you know i’ve been waiting all day for you typical israeli chutzpah the teenager responsible officer i got here as quick as i could when the officer finished laughing he let him go without a ticket you know when we speak about laughter and happiness we need to realize that it’s serious business in this week’s powershell the torah speaks about terrible tragedies that will befell the jewish people and there’s an interesting verse that at face value is quite challenging to understand the torah tells us that the reason why these tragedies these calamities will befell the jewish people is because they didn’t serve god with simcha with joy and with happiness you know we often hear people speak about the pursuit of happiness and how every one of us is entitled to be happy what i think we need to do is understand the clear distinction between how society views happiness and how the torah understands simcha happiness comes from the root word hap haphazard hapless while the word simcha can be broken down into two words which means that once happiness is dependent on where one’s mind is at you see simcha is not haphazard if one understands one’s own essence and one contemplates and one has a purpose and a direction and meaning that creates simcha you know the great mystics once remarked there are six hundred and
