More On Family Breakdowns

I did not give up. I e-mailed her. She did not respond. I sent her text messages. She ignored them. I spoke to my siblings and asked them to intercede but that turned out to be another disaster because they joined her. There was money involved and greed took over. I went to third parties and asked them to get involved but that too was futile. In desperation I approached the rabbi in her community and asked for his help. He informed me that he hardly knew her but he’d be happy to try. Predictably, she would not communicate with him.

Today my situation is unbearable. I have been forced to hire attorneys. The amount I have spent on legal fees is beyond words. But it’s not only money that’s at stake. My life and the lives of my wife and children are on the line as well. My mother is pursuing me relentlessly. My lawyers have tried to make a deal with her attorneys but they refused. My mother’s venom is such that she couldn’t care less if I ended up in jail. It is not only the lawsuit that is torturing me but the cruelty of my mother and the callousness of my siblings. It is apparent they are all ready to kill for the almighty dollar and it’s me – their son and brother – they are all willing to destroy.

I really do not know how you can help me. This is not a problem for which there are easy solutions. It is only my mother who could change the situation by removing this albatross from around my neck. Nevertheless, I am writing to you to ask for your prayers and that you please share my letter with your readers. Perhaps my mother will see it and realize how heinous, how horrific, this family tragedy is.

Cauliflower is one of my favorite ingredients to cook with – it blends so easily into whatever dish I am preparing.

It’s an interesting idea, that love is illustrated by understanding another’s needs.

“Keeping” Shabbos means to guard it and make sure to keep every aspect and detail of it.

Pesach is a time when we can grow in this perspective. But merely spending a week working on something will not leave any lasting impression on us.

“There is a diamond necklace that I wear on special occasions,” Mrs. Miller told her husband. “It was recently appraised at $6,000. If need be, we can give that as collateral.”

Morah for a parent is connected to shemiras Shabbos because the Shechina shines on, and through, the Sabbath.

“You shall not hate your brother in your heart; you shall reprove your fellow and do not bear a sin because of him.” – Vayikra 19:17   When the Torah mentions the obligation to rebuke a fellow Jew, it ends with the words “and do not carry a sin because of him.” The Targum translates […]

The Bais Halevi answers that we must properly define what is considered to be “in the middle of a mitzvah.”

He was deeply saddened by the thought of her going to her final resting place alone and that it appeared as if she knew no one and had no family who cared about her.

Question: If Abraham was commanded to circumcise his descendants on the eighth day, why do Arabs – who claim to descend from Abraham through Yishmael – wait until their children are 13 to circumcise them? I am aware that this is a matter of little consequence to our people. Nevertheless, this inconsistency is one that piques my curiosity.
