VeAfilu BeHastara


(Please see previous post here)
[Some versions - :כָּתוּב בַּתּוֹרָה הַקְדוֹשָׁה]
דֶער אֵויבִערשְׁטָער זָאגְט אוּנז קִינְדָערְלַעךְ: אָנוֹכִי הַסְתֵּר אַסְתִּר פָּנַי בַּיוֹם הַהוּא
 וְאַפִילוּ בְּהַסְתָּרָה שֶׁבְּתוֹךְ הַסְתָּרָה בְּוַודַאי גַם שָׁם נִמְצָא הַשֵם יִתְבָּרַךְ. גַם מֵאַחוֹרֵי הַדְבָרִים הַקָשִׁים הָעוֹבְרִים עָלֶיךָ, אַנִי עוֹמֵד


"[**Some versions - It is written in the Holy Torah:] Hashem says to His children:  'I will conceal Myself (from the Jewish people) on that day.' (Devarim 31:18)
Rav Nachman however explains: Even during a concealment within a concealment, Hashem, may He be blessed, is certainly there. Also behind all the difficult things that come before you, I stand." (Likutei Mo"HaRan - Specific Torah to be added soon)

see the likuatai moharan explanation its fascinating and very applicable to todays generation basically there are two levels of concealment one is when you don't see God hand and even deeper is when you don't even realize that you don't see

I absolutely love this blog and your purpose of doing this. Many people just know the tunes and words to songs but never really think or know the meaning of what theyre saying and it can really elevate their tefila/expressing themselves to Gd.
I love this blog and definitely finally understood ive been singing all along. Keep it up, Youre is amazing! Thank You!
