R’ Shalom Arush on Shalom Bayit (Peace in the Home)


“The entire ge'ula, or full redemption of our people, depends on peace in the home. A peaceful home is a worthy sanctuary for the Shechina, or Divine Presence. The more the Divine Presence fill the world, the closer we get to the ge'ula.Therefore, every family that builds a peaceful home hastens the ge'ula. Our sages say that peace is the best vessel there is for all kinds of blessings. By enhancing the peace in one's home, one merits every imaginable blessing. For that reason, it's work making every effort to make our homes peaceful.”

– R' Shalom Arush, The Garden of Peace
