When facing tragedy and challenging times, we must seek Divine protection by finding the inspiration to do teshuva. However, inspiration is not sufficient. We must express our teshuva through a "kabbalah" – a verbal commitment to change our behavior.

You Can’t Force God

Why are my persistent prayers not answered? I’m thanking Hashem, but I’m not getting what I asked for. What's wrong?  The problem comes when you do a mitzvah and expect to get a specific result in a specific time frame...
