How Will You Pray?

Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are almost here. How will you pray? How will you reunite with your Heavenly Father? Will your visit with Him have meaning, or will it be a meaningless empty ritual?

Changing Ourselves To Change Others

The time has come for all of us to change, to become the people our Creator meant us to be. Instead of working on others, let us work on ourselves.

I’m Afraid

I’m afraid. People do not understand, but what I fear is our own people – yes, our own people who have forgotten who we are, who no longer remember that we Jews stood at Sinai

Nothing Is As Simple As It Looks

G-d’s discipline is never punitive, it is corrective: the Torah tells us that G-d chastises us even as a father chastises his children.

No Child Should Be A Castaway

I have dealt with many teenagers who have been cast out of their homes and schools. I must emphasize that the most potent way to reach them is with berachos and love. I am not saying this is easy

The Guarantors

We want our children to have self-esteem. Can there be a greater generator of self-esteem in children than their knowing they were chosen to be the guarantors of the Torah?

From Spark To Flame

The Yiddishe neshamah can be likened to a computer. If you can’t find that pintele Yid, it’s only because you don’t know how to bring up the program – but, rest assured, the program is there

The Sword In The Tongue

While the devastating effects of lashon hara have had much exposure through shiurim and literature, there has been little focus on the deleterious effects of onas devarim/verbal abuse

The Intolerable Loudness Of Simcha Music

Could it be that we, like the Indians of yesteryear, are attempting to banish the insanity in our society and have forgotten the sweet sounds of the music that was once reflective of our simchas?

Singles And The Need To Get Beyond ‘Chemistry’

Since our faith teaches that every person has a soul mate – bashert – designated by Heaven, how is it that so many cannot find their partners?

The Baggage Weighing Down Our Singles

While Orthodox singles are more insulated from cultural influences, it has had an impact. The questions remain: Why can’t singles get married? What went wrong? Is it 'external influences'?

Shidduch Problems Are Nothing New

Every generation has its own daunting shidduch challenges. Unfortunately, finding the right shidduch is not a new phenomenon, nor is it limited to our contemporary world.

A Good Heart Above All

“Good luck to you,” I said. “That would take five different guys all wrapped into one. But more importantly, your ‘big fives’ are a bunch of zeros and do not add up to anything.”

Singles And Self-Defeating Attitudes

A pervasive difficulty when dealing with singles is their failure to be realistic. Today’s successful shadchan not only has to be a matchmaker but often also assumes the role of a “life coach”

Speaking From The Heart

It’s easy for anyone to lose his way, and once the downward spiral commences, the descent is rapid. Downhill is always easy, but with HaShem's help, every Jew can climb back up again.

Powerful ‘Regards’

The Hebrew word for coincidence is 'mikreh.' It comes from “karah min Hashem – it happened from G-d.” G-d arranges our footsteps.” You must only learn how to listen.

Helping Our Divorced Brothers And Sisters

The difference between becoming widowed and becoming a divorcee is the former evokes compassion while the latter suffer differently enduring gossip

Be A Blessing

The charge of G-d is not “Be blessed” but “Be a blessing” and it has been in our DNA since Avraham our Father

‘Next Year In Jerusalem’

“Please, Rebbetzin, give me a berachah that I should never forget to cry for the Beis HaMikdash. I’m so afraid I will forget and become oblivious to its loss. "

Still a Nation That Dwells Alone

Most Jews are not naïve but liberals who want to believe in a higher civilization –one that shuns cruelty and barbaric savagery, therefore they refuse to learn from our past.

Song Of Thanks

What is the meaning of Dayenu? Why does it play such a central role in our Pesach Seder?

Words From The Heart

Many of us saw loved ones disappear through assimilation but the covenant of G-d we entered into at Sinai can transform anyone

Prayer Is The Foundation

In our “enlightened” world the voice of prayer has become muted; regarded as something only a naïve, unenlightened person can take seriously

Independence And Dependence

Eretz Yisrael is a land of magic, a land where G-d Himself resides another proof that He has not forsaken us

‘Not The Horse I Wanted’

“Noch azoy ah churbon"--after such slaughter (the Holocaust) we must kiss every living Jew and embrace him with love”
