Wonder Detergent

Last week, I bought a new brand of detergent.

 

It promises to remove all stains, even those stubborn, impossible to remove ones–or your money back. Guaranteed.

 

Amazing, huh?

 

I couldn’t even wait to get a stain, to try it out. And with a family of a bunch of kids, I didn’t have to wait very long.

 

You know what? It really does work wonders. Chocolate, grass, even lipstick-it takes them all out. Effortlessly.

 

But after a few washes, I noticed something else about my wonder detergent. As good as a job as it does, it also dulls the color. The shirts are no longer as bright. They look kind of worn out. Used.

 

             I guess I shouldn’t have expected more.

 

But imagine if you could find a detergent that at the same time as it removes the stains, also makes the colors look brighter, more prominent. And better yet, even makes the fabric look newer, not worn, but stronger, improving the texture of the material. Not only as good as new-but even better!

 

            Impossible? Probably.

 

But there is a wonder gift that G-d gave our world.

 

It’s got a brand name called teshuvah, repentance. Not only does teshuvah remove the stain of sin from the fabric of our souls, it actually makes our souls sparkle even brighter. By making us aware of how stained we’ve become it propels us to invest more energy and effort into strengthening our bond and connection with G-d. And that makes us look even better than ever.

 

Imagine going through the wash cycle, and coming out looking even newer and brighter. Sounds too good to be true?

 

Now there’s something to package.

On her first ever trip to Israel last week, popular radio talk-show personality and clinical psychologist Dr. Joy Browne, whose spirited broadcasts regularly attract millions of listeners across North America, paid a visit to OneFamily headquarters in Jerusalem in order to learn more about the physical and emotional challenges faced by victims of terror in […]

With the famous Touro Synagogue, a variety of mansions, each with its own distinct personality, as well as the beautiful coast, Rhode Island makes for an excellent vacation spot.

To avoid all this waste and unnecessary anxiety, let’s break the task down step by step and tackle each one at a time.

While there are those who insist they need full-color photos to be truly entranced by a recipe, I suggest you get over that particular requirement because the written word here will draw you in and cause you to salivate as you peruse the recipes scattered throughout The Well-Spiced Life (Israel Book Shop).

For those who couldn’t go off base, a personal parcel was priceless in its ability to convey a feeling of home.

With the danger of being discovered always a possibility, the partisans not only moved around in the forest, but also eliminated any collaborators.

We never cease to be students, even when we are no longer in school. Therefore, everyone can learn from these elements of thought.

Whether the rest of us admit it or not, covers draw our attentions and create the initial impressions we have with books.
