Shevi’s Journey – Chapter I

A prickly, uncomfortable feeling was spreading through my chest and into my throat.

Just The Two Of Us

We let the children know that this was our time to recharge, reconnect, play, and perhaps enjoy a little quiet.

Decoding PDD And NVLD: Understanding The Alphabet of Disabilities

Kids with NVLD are very verbal and often do not have academic problems until they get to the upper grades in school.

Willing To Be Insulted

Not only did Rav Avraham give tzedakah himself, but he also sought to get others to give as well.

The Fascinating Life of Our First Matriarch

Besides her gifts of beauty, prophecy, wisdom and leadership, Sarah also possessed, according to Chazal, great spiritual and material blessings.

Dear Dr. Yael

Marriage is all about compromise and making sacrifices.

“The Temple Mount Is In Our Hands”

Suddenly it dawned on me that in 1967, during the Six-Day War, the armies of Israel recaptured the Temple Mount and the surrounding outer wall, which we refer to as the Kotel.

Is Davening A Challenge?

Once you are aware of WHY we are able to daven, you will think about the meaning of what you’re saying. Then davening becomes an opportunity to clarify our relationship with God.

Fighting Incitement, Aiding Integration In Jerusalem

School is back in session and with it is a new initiative to fight anti-Israel lessons in textbooks used by Palestinian schoolchildren

Throwing Off The Burden Of Sin The Real Meaning Of Tashlich

If our teshuva is real, if we feel sincere regret and have resolved to become better, Hashem will look at us as new people.

Receiving The Shabbos And Connecting To Hashem

Additionally, the day of Shabbos intrinsically carries with it a potential for spirituality and connection to Hashem that no other day has.

From The Home Front

It used to be that when our youngest boys were about to go outside and it was cold, I’d sometimes remind them to take a jacket. Now I remind our youngest son, Yisrael Meir, to take pepper spray.

For Every Coin, An Address

She spoke with a smile on her face, exuding a calm acceptance of her less-than-ideal circumstances.

Daf Yomi

Withholding The Rod ‘A Rebellious Son Never Existed And Never Will’ (Sanhedrin 71a)

Q & A: Women’s Simchat Yom Tov Obligation

Question: According to Chazal, it would seem that women have no simcha obligation on Yom Tov other than to purchase new garments. Is that, in fact, the case? M. Schwartz

The Case Of The Forgetful But Honest Borrower (Siman 76:3)

He should have anticipated that the plaintiffs themselves might later forget who gave what.

Unaltered Dress

When the employer stipulates clearly that the work must be done by a certain time, failure to complete it on time is a breach of contract, replied Rabbi Dayan.

To Avenge Or Not To Avenge: That Is The Question

The search for perfect justice is not for us, here, now. It is – as Moses taught the Israelites in the great song he sang at the end of his life – something that faith demands we leave to G-d, who alone knows the human heart, who alone knows what is just in a world of conflicting claims, and who will establish perfect justice at a time, and in a way, of His choosing, not ours.

The Intrigue Of The Akeidah

I would like to suggest another approach to the akeidah narrative, one that perhaps ties the essence of the akeidah to Rosh Hashanah, and is alluded to within the tefillah itself.

An Opportunity To Recreate Ourselves (Part II)

Rosh Hashanah is here again. How will you pray this time? Will you reunite with your Heavenly Father this year? Will your visit with Him have meaning, or will it be “same old, same old”?
