Chronicles Of Crises In Our Communities

By:

If you feel burdened by the chore of baby-sitting your younger brothers and sisters, speak to your parents about your feelings. Having a grownup discussion in a calm and respectful way may get you surprising results.

At the same time, keep in mind that for every time you help your parents out you are earning a double mitzvah: one for doing a chesed and one for kibbud av v’eim. And I’m sure you know that every mitzvah you do creates a malach, one that becomes your own personal guardian angel to help you out in life in unforeseen ways.

Right now the years may seem like they’re dragging, but before you know it you will be full-fledged adults. The role of a grownup comes with serious responsibilities that your parents want you to be well prepared for. That’s one reason they want you to do well in school. All the studying and learning you do now will come in handy in the future.

When you sent this letter out, it seemed like winter would never end. But suddenly it really feels like spring. Even as you look forward to summer and a change of scenery, remember to thank Hashem every day for everything you have – including a mom and dad who love you and work hard to provide you with all your needs.

Hopefully your parents are reading this and will smooth the way for an open and easy communication and better understanding between you. Good luck!

There is a point that many parenting books miss: children do more for us than we do for them.

The husband needs to make some changes!

Purim is a fantastic time for fantasies, so I hope you won’t mind my fantasizing about how easy life would be if kids would prefer healthy cuisine over sweets. Imagine waking up to the call of “Mommy, when will my oatmeal be ready?”… As you rush to ladle out the hot unsweetened cereal, you rub […]

One should not give the money before Purim morning or after sunset.

The mishloach manos of times gone by were sometimes simple and sometimes elaborate, but the main focus was on the preparation of the delicious food they contained.

One of the earliest special Purims we have on record was celebrated by the Jews of Granada and Shmuel HaNagid, the eleventh-century rav, poet, soldier and statesman, and one of the most influential Jews in Muslim Spain.

The program took on special significance as it marked not only the first anniversary of Rebbetzin Kudan’s levayah but also the 27th yahrzeit of Rebbetzin Chaya Mushka Schneerson, a”h.

It was only in the reign of George III (1760-1820) that Jews became socially acceptable in Britain, and Nathan became music master to Princess Charlotte and musical librarian to King George IV.

It captures the love of the Jewish soul as only Shlomo Hamelech could portray it – and as only Rabbi Miller could explain it.
