Great Art and Chassidic/Hassidic sayings that inspire!
My most popular daily blog is a big Surprise and just tells you what people are searching for nowadays i.e. The Lubliner Rabbi: “Better an insincere peace than a sincere quarrel”. My wife wants this beautiful painting / picture for her holy birthday this week 7 Adar<- Moshe Rabbenu’s style, The story is about Zecharya’s Prophecy <-listen here to original song from Midnightrabbi inspired about this. Oil on Canvass 100cm x 80cm Original: Private Collection. Givat Ze’ev, Israel. High quality, signed Giclee prints are for sale here <- and more …“ Old men and women will yet sit in the streets of Jerusalem,and each will have his staff in his hand due to old age,and the streets of the city will, once again,be filled with boys and girls playing”.

He left them and soon met a Jew.
‘Do you have any Hametz’, he asked.
‘Hametz?’ asked the astonished Jew. ‘Heaven forbid that a Jew should have Hametz after the sixth hour on Erev Pessach!’
Soon he met a second Jew and again asked, ‘Do you have any Hametz?’
‘What did you ask, Rabbi’, answered the distraught man. ‘Hametz at this time!”…
