Today’s ‘Sicha Yomis’ Urges Investing in Our Own

For the past 26 years, the Sicha Yomis program has strengthened the hsikashrus of many by preparing an excerpt of a sicha of the Rebbe to listen to on every weekday.

The popular program selects an approximately ten minute clip of a sicha connected to each day, one that ties in with the time of the year, the daily Chitas or that day’s Rambam. Many shuls play it between Mincha and Ma’ariv, and yeshivos play it before the bochurim conclude their day.

Several weeks ago, Sicha Yomis updated their website, introducing a beautiful, user-friendly layout and a variety of new options to facilitate daily listening. The advanced search feature allows users to search through the entire Sicha Yomis archive (which includes about 2500 sichos!), by topic, date, or keyword.

The website offers free access to the transcript of the sicha in the original Yiddish, the Hebrew translation, as well as mp3 files of the sicha audio for those who would like to play it without internet connection.

Rabbi Tzvi Hirsh Gurary, director of Sicha Yomis, shared the message of today’s sicha, excerpted from a talk on 6 Cheshvan 5724. “We’re all busy with nice and good things,” he said. “But we need to remember that what’s most important and precious to us is our own children.”

The Rebbe explains that when Hashem told Avraham Avinu about his great reward, Avraham replied, “What is it worth if I don’t have children?”

A person naturally wants everything he invested in to continue successfully and grow, but Avraham was not satisfied with his teachings living on through Eliezer, his devoted servant. He specifically wanted a child of his own to continue in his ways. True schar is when a person’s ideals are carried on specifically by his children. For this reason, Gedolei Yisroel invested in Chinuch, regardless of the difficulties.
