קושי בחזרה בתשובה - אדם חילוני בתהליך חזרה לאמת

מתוך הרצאה של הרב אמנון יצחק , אדם חילוני מסביר שקשה לו לחזור בתשובה ולקחת עליו פתאום בבת אחת את כל ההלכות וכו'... צפו בסרטון.



For those who don't understand Hebrew this video is of Rabbi Amnon Yitzhaq. The man asking the questions is asking how he can return to Judaism when he has been secular for years. Rabbi Amnan Yitzhaq explains to him that it is as simple as making a choice, and then learning what is correct and what is incorrect behavior based on Jewish sources. He then gives the man a first step by helping him with Tzitzit.

Sweet. I had to watch it a few times to get it (im slow!) but i think the guy said something about how he gets up every morning and says that he will try to "return" today and he washes and says asher yatzar it was nice that everyone clapped for him. Very touching when he said shehechiyanu...

Hey no problem with watching it a few times. I have watched a number of his videos a few times also. (smile)

Yeah, the guy talked initially about how hard it was to do shuva. That is when Rabbi Amnon told him that he simply needed to start with making a choice and knowing what is not allowed and what we are supposed to do. He told him that he could start with the Shulkan Arukh.

The guy mentioned that he does the brachot for Shachar, and that he realizes how important it is for him. He also asked about whether tzitzit were a good start. Rabbi Amnon said yes, but also said there were other things besides that.

I really enjoy Rabbi Amnon's approach to Qiruv. He is also good because he himself was secular for 24 years before he became religious so he really understands what he is talking about. I may try to go to one of his talks in the near future.

Rav Amnon is excellent.
I have seen most of his videos and even made some work on a few of them.
Thank you for sharing this with us...

Hey Teshuva,

Yes, he is really great. No problem.

I wish they would've chose some other music than the shtetl-disco stuff.
