Synopsis: In today's (unplanned, disorganized, and rushed) episode, we compare and contrast the short prayer formulated by Marcus Aurelius in his Meditations with the short prayer uttered by the Kohen Gadol (High Priest) in the Temple Service of Yom Kippur. We conclude by examining both prayers in light of an excerpt from Emerson's Self-Reliance on what prayers should and shouldn't be.Related Rabbi Schneeweiss Content:- The Stoic Approach to Tefilah (Seneca Letter #67 - On Ill-Health and Endurance of Suffering)Sources:- Aurelius, Meditations 5:7- Yoma 5:1, with Rambam's Commentary- Rambam, Mishneh Torah: Sefer Avodah, Hilchos Avodas Yom ha'Kippurim 4:1- Ralph Waldo Emerson, Self-Reliance----------This week's Torah learning has been sponsored by Joey and Estee, whom I'd like to thank for being such an important part of my life.----------If you have questions, comments, or feedback, I would love to hear from you!

Synopsis: In today's episode we examine Marcus Aurelius's analysis of the lesser and greater motives for doing acts of tzedakah (righteousness), and compare his view with Judaism's, as taught by Shlomo ha'Melech (King Solomon) in Sefer Mishlei (the Book of Proverbs).Related Rabbi Schneeweiss Content:- The Mishleic Spectrum: A Glossary of Mishlei Personalities (note that these definitions are NOT current, but they will still prove to be insightful)Sources:- Aurelius, Meditations 5:6- Yirmiyahu 9:22-23- Rambam, Moreh ha'Nevuchim 3:54- Rambam, Mishneh Torah: Sefer ha'Mada, Hilchos Teshuvah 10:2----------The Torah content for the first two weeks of yeshiva has been sponsored anonymously.

Synopsis: In today's episode we read how Marcus Aurelius grappled with (what he deemed to be) his own intellectual inferiority. After getting the pshat of his meditation, I then turn the lens onto myself and recount how I grappled with my own intellectual inferiority in my yeshiva days, and how many of these feelings surged up yesterday when - for the first time in 13 years - I rejoined my rebbi's Gemara shiur in yeshiva. I recommend that my own talmidim and talmidot listen to this episode if they, too, have struggled with coming to terms with their own intellectual inferiority.Related Rabbi Schneeweiss Content:- My StorySources:- Aurelius, Meditations 5:5----------The Torah content for the first two weeks of yeshiva has been sponsored by Avital H.

Synopsis: In today’s inaugural episode of TSJ Season 10 (Fall 2022-2023) I make a case for why we should all aspire to pain and suffering during “teshuvah season” (i.e. Elul and the Aseres Ymei Teshuvah). Not ALL kinds of pain, but a specific kind of suffering which necessarily accompanies true growth and development.Related Rabbi Schneeweiss Content:- Bruce Lee: On Lefum Tzaara Agra Sources:- Epictetus, Discourses 3:23- Avos 5:23- Bruce Lee- Rabbi Joseph B.

Synopsis: We’ve spoken about the concept of Stoic invulnerability in past episodes (some of which are linked below). This morning I stumbled upon a rather nice explanation from Marcus Aurelius about how it works – an explanation which lines up perfectly with some halachos from the Rambam in the Mishneh Torah. Related Rabbi Schneeweiss Content:- How to Convince Mom That You’re Invulnerable- Aurelius, Meditations 4:7: The Secret to Not Getting Hurt- Aurelius, Meditations 4:8: The Stoic Definition of Harm- The Obstacle is the Way to Knowledge of Hashem- The Medallion Experiment Sources:- Aurelius, Meditations 10:33; 4:8; 5:20- Rambam: Mishneh Torah, Sefer ha’Mada, Hilchos Yesodei ha’Torah 3:11, 4:2; Hilchos Teshuvah 5:1-2- Tehilim 118:6----------The Torah content for this week has been sponsored by Courtney K. ----------If you have questions, comments, or feedback, I would love to hear from you!

Synopsis: I can imagine someone saying something like this: “Look, I get that YOU find value in the ideas of the Stoics, and feel the need to teach those ideas, but why can’t you do so EXCLUSIVELY through Torah sources? Why do you have to actually present the ideas from the Stoic texts themselves?” This episode is my answer to that question. Related Rabbi Schneeweiss Content:- TSJ Interlude: A Defense of This Podcast- Why Do You Value Stoicism as a Jew?- Reflections of Truth Sources:- Hillel Goldberg, Between Berlin and Slobodka: Jewish Transition Figures From Eastern Europe- Lawrence Kaplan, Review Essay: Jewish Orthodoxy in the Twentieth Century Between Two Worlds- Mishlei 1:20-21- Ralph Waldo Emerson, Self-Reliance (1840)- Rabbi Bernie Fox, Thoughts on the Parashah, Concluding Paragraph of Thank You Letter----------The Torah content for these two weeks has been sponsored by Ariel Rachmanov, a friend and Mishlei talmid of mine.

Synopsis: My initial answer to this question prompted by a letter from Seneca was, “No!” but then I realized that the question is more nuanced than I thought.

Synopsis: In today's episode I discuss what I believe will be my next level-up in Premeditatio Malorum. It's a technique called EFT (Episodic Future Thinking), and I learned about it from a book I'm reading by Jane McGonigal. After recapping my overview (which I wrote about in a blog post, linked below) we examine some of the many Stoic/Mishleic benefits of this practice. I'm certainly excited about what this practice will yield in my own future, and I hope I can get you excited about it as well!Related Rabbi Schneeweiss Content:- EFT Training: A Summer 2022 Experiment - Judaism and the Benefits of EFT- XTREME Premeditatio Malorum, Vaynerchuk Style- Why Do You Value Stoicism as a Jew?Sources:- Seneca, Letter #91- Jane McGonigal – Imaginable: How to see the future coming and feel ready for anything – even things that seem impossible today, pp.27; 82-83- Saadia Gaon, Introduction to Mishlei- Mishlei 24:31-34- Aurelius, Medidtations 9:30; 12:24----------The Torah content for these two weeks has been sponsored by Judah and Naomi Dardik in loving memory of Rabbi Moskowitz zt''l, who taught his students to pursue truth by asking questions, who modeled love of Torah and learning, and who exemplified living a life of the mind.----------If you have questions, comments, or feedback, I would love to hear from you!

Synopsis: Have you ever seen the audition tape for Henry Thomas, the kid who played Elliot in Stephen Spielberg’s E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial? Well, if you haven’t, drop everything you’re doing and watch it now, because it’s one of the best performances of a child actor I’ve seen – and it was all improvised! Not only that, but it led to an insight about Stoicism which, in turn, led to an insight about human perfection, and that’s what this episode is about. That, and a story about how Stoicism kicked in after I lost my car keys this past Friday. Related Rabbi Schneeweiss Content:- Aurelius - Meditations 4:22: That's a Jacket, Not a Bad Cat!- TSJ Interlude - I Got Got By An Impression!Sources: - Epictetus, Discourses 2:18- YouTube: Henry Thomas Audition for E.T. “Ok, kid, you got the job”.- YouTube: The Story of Casting Elliot in E.T.- Ralbag, Bereishis, Introduction to Section 8 (2:4 – 3:24)----------The Torah content for these two weeks has been sponsored by Judah and Naomi Dardik in loving memory of Rabbi Moskowitz zt''l, who taught his students to pursue truth by asking questions, who modeled love of Torah and learning, and who exemplified living a life of the mind.----------If you have questions, comments, or feedback, I would love to hear from you!

Synopsis: I am pleased (and grateful) to say that my Gratitude Journal practice has reached its one-year milestone! In today’s episode I reflect on how these last 365 days of gratitude journaling have changed me, and how this whole process has exemplified the habit cultivation principles stated by Aurelius, Epictetus, and the Rambam.Related Rabbi Schneeweiss Content: - The Gratitude Accountability Experiment- 100 Days of Gratitude- 225 Days of Gratitude- TSJ Interlude: 300 Days of Gratitude Sources: - Aurelius, Meditations 5:16- Tara Brach (can’t remember specific citations)- Epictetus, Discourses 2:18- Rambam: Mishneh Torah, Hilchos Deios 1:7- Ibn Ezra, Devarim 30:14----------The Torah content for these two weeks has been sponsored by Judah and Naomi Dardik in loving memory of Rabbi Moskowitz zt''l, who taught his students to pursue truth by asking questions, who modeled love of Torah and learning, and who exemplified living a life of the mind.----------If you have questions, comments, or feedback, I would love to hear from you!

Synopsis: We’re back! Since the last episode I posted was my eulogy of Rabbi Moskowitz, and since today (the day of the recording) is Rabbi Moskowitz’s shloshim, I decided to devote this episode to one of Rabbi Moskowitz’s many virtues – one which is discussed by Marcus Aurelius, and is shared by Judaism and Stoicism.Sources:- Aurelius, Meditations 6:21- Saadia Gaon, unsourced quotation (according to Rabbi Moskowitz’s unreliable memory)- Emerson, Self-Reliance, Essays: First Series----------This week's Torah content has been sponsored by Naomi Mann in honor of Rabbi Moskowitz zt"l, whose shloshim is this week. ----------If you have questions, comments, or feedback, I would love to hear from you!

Synopsis: My insomnia has been particularly bad lately ... OR HAS IT? This episode begins with a recap of Epictetus's approach to "impressions," the Jewish counterpart of which is what Shlomo ha'Melech refers to as ormah ("cunning"). I then walk you through an application of this perspective to my own problem of chronic insomnia, which was the involuntary co-sponsor of today's episode. Note: I recorded this on Wednesday. My sleep improved the next night, but - due to recent events and upcoming events - I have a feeling the trend is likely to continue for a couple of weeks.Related Rabbi Schneeweiss Content: - A Stoic Cure for Insomnia ...

Synopsis: Today’s episode is an example of how a familiar idea can be imbued with a new level of insight if one finds a new way of engaging it. In this case, the old idea was the opening thesis of Koheles and the Rambam’s explanation of mezuzah, and the new way of engaging it was a writing exercise suggested by Natalie Goldberg.Related Rabbi Schneeweiss Content: - The Sacred Pause as Applied to Mezuzah Sources:- Aurelius, Meditations 5:23- Natalie Goldberg, Writing Down the Bones Deck, Card #3- Koheles 1:2- Rambam: Mishneh Torah, Sefer Ahavah, Hilchos Tefilin, u’Mezuzah, v’Sefer Torah 6:13----------This week's Torah content has been sponsored by Alex K.

Synopsis: In today’s episode we go over a practical habit cultivation (or habit removal) tip from Epictetus, which is expanded upon by James Clear in Atomic Habits.
