In this podcast, Yiscah Smith discusses the practice of cultivating “הלב התנדבות” —the spirit of generosity— that allows for the building of one’s inner spiritual home, manifesting in the revelation of the Shechina, the Divine Presence. This shiur is based on a teaching from the book Netivot Shalom, as taught by Rav Sholom Noach Berezovsky, the Slonimer Rebbe, who passed away in Jerusalem in 2000. He is also known by the name of his book.
