Our sages teach us the importance of feeling a deep longing for for mashiach and the days of redemption. But achieving that seep inner longing is much easier said than done. How does one go about feeling that burning desire in the depths of their heart? How does one really learn to feel that yearning?

In just five minutes each day, you can change your outlook on life, and approach this Tisha B’av with the proper thoughts and feelings about galus and geulah.

To help you prepare for the nine days and tisha b’av, we’re offering you a sampler download of Yearning With Fire. Download it. Print it. Learn it. Be inspired!

Tehillim for the Three Captives

We all share the concern of Klal Yisrael all over the world for the safety of the three young men who have been kidnapped in Israel, and we all pour out our tefillos to Hashem for their quick and safe return to their families. For your convenience, we present five chapters of Tehillim with the prayer to be recited at their conclusion. May Hashem accept our tefillos and bring a successful end to the ordeal of the victims and their families.

The names of the young men are:

Yaakov Naftali ben Rachel Devorah, יעקב נפתלי בן רחל דבורה

Gilad Michael ben Bat Galim, גיל-עד מיכאל בן בת גלים

Eyal ben Iris Teshurah,  אייל בן איריס תשורה
