A Nation Which Dwells Alone

Are you a statistics person? Do you remember the numbers you read; can you retain and when necessary retrieve them? Or are you more the graphics type that relates to visuals of pies and colored blocks and zigzaggy lines to make a point? I like anecdotes, little stories that (as someone once put ...

Have you ever heard of Reb Mendel? He smuggled Jews out of the Soviet Unionat the end of World War Two. The Communists gave him fifteen years in the Siberian gulags. 

Ever heard of Mume Sorah? She did the same, but they never bothered sending her away. For decades her family never ...

 
 

34th ST. BETWEEN FIFTH AND SEVENTH

Walking down Thirty-Fourth Street you see the camera-clad map-wielding tourists heading towards the entranceway of the Empire State Building. They stop and look up, they lean back, lean all the way back until just before they loose balance, and they start clicking pictures – of a wide, wide ...

 
 

Trust

"Never look a gift horse in the mouth"
Good idea generally, gift horses can be liabilities - expensive ones.
But if G-d is giving gifts, trust Him.
He is not a horse thief

If you don't trust G-d, then you trust no one: who can you trust?
And ultimately, you don't trust trust.
How ...

Have you ever met someone great: not just great but truly great?  A giant? Have you felt the awe of their presence that is only enhanced when they extend themselves to you, when they draw you in?  If you haven’t yet, you have something to look forward to.

Some thirty-five ...

 
 

Individual Talents

This week's Parsha tells of twelve sets of gifts brought as offerings by each of the twelve shevatim (tribes). Although the Torah does not waste words, and although each shevet seemingly brought the same gift, the Torah repeats word for word the exact order of their donation - ...

 
 

A Marriage in the Desert

Wednesday, May 20 2015
0 Comments  |  Add Comment

Why was the Torah given in a desert? The marriage between G-d and His people: when they became "a singular nation in all the land", with the children being the guarantors, the blast of the shofar. Such a wonderful experience should have better taken place amidst lush foliage, brilliant ...

 
 

Last Line on Curses

0 Comments  |  Add Comment

Anyone can curse: like anything else cursing can be sublimate to an art.  The alte Poilishe yiddenes, the Jewish women of Poland, when the troubles and aggravations of the marketplace bubbled over they would fume at each other:  “You should have a court case -- and you should ...

 
 

Bow & Arrow

Have you ever shot a bow and arrow?  I haven't.  In school, the teachers spoke of the custom of taking kids to the fields to shoot bows and arrows on Lag B'omer.  But they never took us.  Archery by proxy. 

The custom, they told me, dates back to the Roman ...

 
 

You Should Be Holy, For I Am Holy

It was in the depths of inhumanity, wrote survivor Gerta Klein, that she glimpsed humanity. A friend in Bergen Belsen presented her with a green-leaf-garnished raspberry. Other survivors tell of Jews with nothing to offer would huddle others close to them to shield them from winter winds.
