The epitome of boredom. I'm not sure why I just did that.
If you're going to tag all of us, at least put the reason why in the post so we don't have to scroll back for 5 minutes to figure out why.

Not all of us aim to epitomize boredom 😝

I'm guessing this would be the best place to shamelessly plug a book I just published with a friend of mine (my apologies if not, my DDF etiquete is a bit rusty, happy to move it if there's a more appropriate spot).

Torah && Tech is the name of a newsletter we've been publishing for a year and a half. It features a weekly Dvar Torah relevant to people with an interest in Torah and/or the world of tech, though we make an effort to keep it approachable to people without an extensive background in either.

After a year we decided to publish the first year's worth of Divrei Torah on the Parshiot as a book which can be found here.

You can also subscribe to the weekly newsletter here and get a free preview of volume two ;)

P.S. Hi

Ah, I see what your saying now. I would like to apologise to any apostrophe's that we're hurt in the process of sending that message as well!

Incredibly painful post to read considering the username. Not you're finest hour, @Achas Veachas
I had a feeling my presidential run would get derailed by something I wrote on DDF a half a decade ago 😭

So for when this comes up I'd like to publicly apologize to mother in laws and to Pesach hotels. My views have evolved and I've grown. I now recognize the great role mothers in law play in their families' lives and the importance of Pesach hotels for those who need them. In fact, one of my best friends is a mother in law and my cousin recently married a Pesach hotel, so no one understands the importance of maintaining inlaw diversity and hotel inclusion as much as me.

I'm speaking about this on Shabbos, and I remembered this thread, can someone help me, exactly where to find it in Tanya?

Specifically, that Hashem recreates every second.
I answered this in PM, but realized it might benefit others so cross-posting here:

Hmm, blast from the past :)

Hard to recall what I had in mind 5 years ago, but my guess is that I was referring to these lines from Perek 2:

מעשה שמים וארץ שהוא יש מאין והוא פלא גדול יותר מקריעת ים סוף עד"מ שהוליך ה' את הים ברוח קדים עזה כל הלילה ויבקעו המים ונצבו כמו נד וכחומה ואילו הפסיק ה' את הרוח כרגע היו המים חוזרים וניגרים במורד כדרכם וטבעם ולא קמו כחומה בלי ספק אף שהטבע הזה במים גם כן נברא ומחודש יש מאין שהרי חומת אבנים נצבת מעצמה בלי רוח רק שטבע המים אינו כן וכ"ש וק"ו בבריאת יש מאין שהיא למעלה מהטבע והפלא ופלא יותר מקריעת ים סוף

Those aren't the exact אותיות that I used, but the idea that the the act of creating the natural world and all its laws constantly is a miracle, and a bigger miracle than creating the world for the first time.

The אותיות I used probably came from Tzvi Freeman article that I love (

Long read, but worth it :)

And what's the source in Midrash Tehillim.

Or, how do I get a hold of @Achas Veachas

מדרש תהלים on Tehillim 119:89
לכך נאמר לעולם ה' דברך נצב בשמים. מהו דברך נצב בשמים אי זהו דבר הנצב בשמים. אלא אמר הקב"ה על מה השמים עומדים על אותו דבר שאמרתי (בראשית א ו-ז) יהי רקיע בתוך המים. ויהי כן. וכתיב (תהלים לג ט) כי הוא אמר ויהי וגו'. אותו הדבר שאמר הוא עשה. לכך נאמר (שם) הוא צוה ויעמוד. בדבר ה' שמים נעשו ובאותו הדבר שברא אותן בו הם עומדים לעולם. לכך נאמר לעולם ה' דברך נצב בשמים.

Back when @Achas Veachas was around we almost had a shabbos at the Ohel.
I was sorta hoping to see you this past Shabbos... ;)

Well send him regards from the DDF family.
He's really needed to straighten out the election thread. :)
Sorry, I'm not going NEAR that thing...
