Mothers, Fathers, And The Curse Of Family Breakdowns


Rebbetzin Esther Jungreis

Rebbetzin Esther Jungreis

We need life coaches: rabbis and teachers who are willing to call us to task and address our failings. More importantly, we must be willing to accept their admonishment with an open heart and appreciation, and that is very difficult to find in our psychology-oriented society so given to scapegoating. There is always someone else who provoked it all, who is responsible.

There are precious few willing to accept the headache and frustration that comes with dealing with such people – ingrates who, instead of expressing gratitude, become even more hostile and accuse those who are trying to help of all kinds of ulterior motives.

So where does that leave us?

This time of year beckons each one of us, promising a miraculous transformation. We need only come home to our Heavenly Father who proclaims, “Even if your sins be red as scarlet, I will make them white as snow.”

Can it be as easy as that?

Yes, if we will it! This is the season when, against all odds, that miraculous transformation can take place. This is the time when G-d created us human beings and it is the time when, if we truly desire it, He can re-create us and miracles will occur.

Kesivah v’chasimah tovah to all of Klal Yisrael.

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.
