Parshas HaMann

First of all, I'm in the middle of a grueling period of final exams in school, so my output level on the blog is running low, at maintenance levels. Thanks for bearing with me.

Today is the third day of the week of Parshas B'Shalach, and is known as a very fortuitous time for prayer, especially for sustenance. Even without the poor economy, we all know the difficulties (either personally or through our friends and loved ones) associated with the hishtadlus (willful effort) toward earning a living and providing for our families. Even if you have the merit to be fully involved in Torah learning, please say the portion of the Manna with Shnayim Mikra v'Echad Targum on behalf of those who are toiling in Derech Eretz (literally, "the way of the land" - a reference to earning a living by engaging in occupations outside the realm of Torah).

Through this, may the One Who sustains us all continue to rain blessings on us, so that we can devote ourselves more to learning His holy Torah without the stresses of livelihood...
