|Lechem Mishneh: Without Limits|
|Written by Mrs Shifra Stern|
Lechem Mishna reminds me of the message of “I am limitless! I can do anything and be anything!” The two loaves of challah that we partake of on Shabbos represents the Manna
that fell in double quantity on Erev Shabbos for the Yidden in the Midbar. Hashem ceased sending the Manna on Shabbos; Hashem caused “Dai”, a limit, which appears like a restriction or an ending of something good…..
Or so it seems.
The Yidden’s experience with a “Dai” of the Mann was actually an opportunity to ask Hashem for more. More expansion, more growth, more blessing……More awareness that they are above and beyond limits!
We often believe when we run into what looks like a “dead end situation” or an obstacle in the road on our journey of life, that this is horrible; the end of the world. In actuality this is a greatest gift from Hashem when we understand the meaning of “Dai”. It’s a chance to ask from our Creator for more! An opportunity to access something that is beyond limits!!
So when we gaze at those delicious Challos on Shabbos, let’s look at them as a reminder to ask from our Creator anything we want in our lives, our Avodas Hashem, or in whom we want to become! Without limits!!
