Watch: How One Man Took Revenge On His Yeitzer Hara

  1. To all the haters: there is nothing worse than apathy. Better be “non standard” but full of spirit, than “frum from habit”. We need to promote the rebellious spirit, and harness it towards Avodas H. All this soulless following-the-cookie-cutter compliance cult is destroying Yidishkeit from within.

    • According to a simple understanding, Kipah is not a halachic obligation, while embarrassing another Yid in public takes away your Olam Habo. Don’t be condescending towards other Yiden, especially those that are better than you (after all, this guy didn’t just put on tsitsis – he probably moved mountains to do it, very different from “frum from habit” crowd).

  2. “Next time yeyzer hara starts up put on kippah.” I think the point specifically was that he was internally genuinely inspired vs taking external instruction, such as from you.

  3. Nebach. The guy had a few drinks too many. There is no need to post a video of every nutcase that woke up on the wrong side of the bed that morning. The facts of his enthralling story don’t even make any sense. If he wouldn’t of woken up at 1:00 in the afternoon and prayed at home, but instead went to Synagogue at the proper time, there would of been plenty of prayer books. Tree’s look nice though.

    • Dear Abnormal in South Florida, shut up and deal with your own lack of ruchnius, you condescending nitwit. How do I know about your low ruchnius level? By the way you judge other Yiden.

  4. This guy has done more then one Mitzvah, After watching this I had a look at my own tzitzis and noticed that they were totally Possul…..

  5. I would like to make a revelation. The Yetzer HaRa has a ball every time you ignore him, give him a hard time, and disobey him. He mourns every time he is listened to. He was created to make life difficult to be a Jew and fulfills his purpose when people disagree with him. A Jew gets rewarded by Hashem for obeying Hashem and not obeying the Yeitzer HaRa, especially when it is hard.
    This reminds me of a line by Shlomo Carlebach. “Thank you G-d for making it so difficult to be a Jew. If it were easy, it would be meaningless.”

  6. To Normal Day etc. You don’t know anything about this man yet you judge him. Maybe he’s a baal teshuva and likes to daven from a certain siddur. You don’t know what struggles he has to over come. I say Kol Hakavod to him.

  7. i agree with you heime 100%.

    FOR ALL YOU JUDGEMENTALS:
    if you guys want to bash him or embarress him on a public site, you have problams, and keep it to yourself because nobody needs to here it exept for your judgemental mind. Nobody can assume what this fine mans’ deal is

  9. The kippa line was meant as encouragement. So all you Self righteous losers desperately looking to prattle mussar to that poster just to make yourselves feel good should calm down and take your meds

  10. “The kippa line was meant as encouragement.” sometimes we need to think through what we want to say before we say it as even with best intentions our poorly chosen words can still convey criticism and a negative message.

  11. Your public “encouragement” sounds very condescending and embarasing. Next time you want to encourage somebody to accept more shmiras hamitsvos, somebody who is already on our side and who is not a rasha befarhesya, do it in private and without condescending attitude – if you are judgemental and think you are better than the person you are trying to influence, you have no chance to succeed, all you are doing is stroking your ego.
