Eternal Strength

לזכות ידיד נפשי הרה"ח ר' צבי משה בן איתן אברהם הלוי שליט"א! הוא ביתו וכל אשר לו.

In the year 1912, the Rav wrote his "theme" for the month of Kislev. He wrote:

 גבורת אמת תמצא רק במקום שאור אלהים שמה  

True strength - גבורת אמת - is found only where there is the Light of Hashem. 

The Goyim also have strength but their's is not אמת, because truth is eternal and only the Chashmonaim who are called in our Al Ha-nissim tefilla חלשים - weak, are endowed with true strength. The strength stems from their connection to Hashem who is אלהים אמת - the eternal G-d. 

Where are the Greeks of old? Where are ALL the ancient cultures. Only ours remains. ודבר אלהינו יקום לעולם.  

A freilichin Chodesh Kislev!!!
