Challenge Part 2: Ruchniyus
The Chazon Challenge will give you a real physical workout! But as we know it’s even more important to give ourselves a workout in רוחניות. So we have devised a כבישת היצר programme to fit alongside the physical Challenge which will focus on methods for overcoming our biggest obstacle in life, the יצר הרע.
Once you have completed registration, you will receive a pack. Inside you will find essays from Rav Dessler זצ''ל of Kelm and Rav Grodzinsky זצ''ל of Slabodka on the subject of defeating the יצר הרע. Closer to the big event, you will have the option of completing a quiz – if you like – on what you have learned, and enter a raffle with the chance of winning a great prize! Just before setting off on your Challenge adventure, we will also briefly review with all Challengers the main messages contained in the writings of these גדולים.
Also, for the opportunity of entering another raffle for yet another great prize, you can keep a log of examples of when you were able to overcome your יצר הרע. Obviously your confidentiality is guaranteed and nobody else will read your entries. Some examples of conquering the יצר הרע are resisting urges such as: interrupting learning to chat/ speaking during davening/ answering back your parents/ listening to or watching inappropriate material/ fighting with siblings/ speaking לשון הרע/ feeling jealous/ sleeping in/ any other עבירה or bad מדה.
You can confidentially email your achievements to firstname.lastname@example.org from the beginning of Chanukah (11th of December).
אי''ה you will find the whole experience thrilling and uplifting, and you will emerge all the stronger both physically and spiritually.
Wishing you הצלחה רבה מאד!Deadline to sign up for The Chazon Challenge is Sunday 3rd December 2020.
