Yidden all over the world are asked to continue reciting Tehillim and learn Torah as a Zechus for the famous Magid of the generation Harav Shlomo Brevda Shlita, who is in need of a Refuah Sheleimah. He has been hospitalized at a medical center in Manhattan his condition is critical.

The name for Tehillim is: “Shlomo Leib ben Miriam”

In his zechus, please read the following:

In one of Rav Shlomo Brevda Shlita Droshes he pointed out, that as much as we admire the men who learn Torah (we surely all do), we should admire their spouses and any spouse taking care of the home even more.

The men feel the tremendous pleasure of Toiling in Torah. Working on a difficult piece an eventually seeing even a drop of light can be a tremendous feeling of ecstasy.
However, what satisfaction do the women feel? She works hard day and night and then the kids get hurt and she has to calm them, clean them, make supper, clean the house, laundry, Pesach clean too.......

A woman who encourages their spouses to go and learn Torah while they take care of the home will get the fullest reward of learning Torah on the highest level in the world to come!

Rav Brevda concluded this point by assuring that he has a very good source for this. He recalled that he heard it from Rav Aharon Kotler, z.t.l. 63 years ago (1949) the Rosh Hayeshivah and founder of the Lakewood Yeshiva the following.

Rav Aharon said that men get a Sippuk-sense of fulfillment from learning Torah. What do the women get? We sometimes "Batul"-waste our time in middle of learning-but women are constantly busy, non stop, they don’t have Bain Hazmanim to wake up late like some men do etc.

Rav Aharon stressed that the women will share in the reward for our learning Torah but they won’t share in any part of our Bitul Torah.

Rav Brevda recalls that some of the "Yunger-Leit"-members of the Kolel in Lakewood where surprised and ask Rav Aharon for clarification, "Are you saying that my wife will get more out of my own Torah learning than I will?

Rav Aharon answered emphatically, "Yah”!! Gleib mir vos ich zog!!-Yes!!! believe me what I say!! Women are sacrificing more than men, especially in our generation. They are fully assured that they will be rewarded in full. We can never be sure if we have fully fulfilled our Tachlis in this world.

Rav Brevda Shlita is one of the most well-known Maggidei Shiur and Darshanim who has delivered thousands of Drashos in Jewish communities worldwide. Rav Brevda is the author of numerous Sforim, including volumes on Yomim Tovim. His writings on the Torah of the Vilna Gaon and the Gaon’s Sforim in Aggadah and Kabbolah are particularly well known.

The name for Tehillim is: “Shlomo Leib ben Miriam”

Rav Brevda is among the greatest of the greats.
The Rav has kept his audiences smaller than what might otherwise be expected from such a Godol b'Torah. He is every bit as big in our generation as his Holy teachers, ztl., were in theirs. As such, every single kapital Tehillim said on behalf of the Rav is the equivalent to dozens and even hundreds of kapitlach said on behalf of the known Gaonim. Please help create this immense source of merit for the Rav's refuah sheleimah and say Tehillim on the Rav's behalf. As the Rav himself was recently quoted, even one posuk will help.
