Destination


When the train has departed the station,
Fresh of food and of saturation,
The journey ahead excites,
With all the could bes and the might’s,

 

See, the conductor paints a “could be”,
Portraying the potential that exists in me,
He yearns to cultivate it and for it to grow,
And for a while it does just so,

 

But, alas the journey jives ultimately arrive,
When the beginners excitement has died,
When all that remains is railroad track,
Touching the horizon, from front and back,

 

This is the time of fear,
The time where dread draws near,
The time that we must stay strong,
The place where it can all be right or wrong,

 

Remembering the former elation,
While keeping one eye on the destination,
Can take you out of the present,
That which stretches on to every second,

 

So you dream and you mourn,
Creating pasts empty and forlorn,
Looking forward to that brighter day,
Ignoring the path there in every way,

 

And when you finally arrive,
To where you’ve been heading your whole life,
You’ll slowly walk down the trains steps,
Weighed down by all your regrets,

 

Yes you finally made it,
Yes you are here,
But now all you have are the memories,
Of the times which you were barely there.

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.

Jews, wake up! Stop educating the world and start educating yourselves.

The lessons conform to the sensitivities and needs of the Orthodox community…

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.

Erudite and academic, drawing from ancient and modern sources, the book can be discussed at the Shabbos table as well as in kollel.

When the train has departed the station,

With all the could bes and the might’s,

They say the flight went down, because it was too cold,
The weather had been changing, but i was never told,
Now I’m alone and I’m freezing, at the bottom of the sea,
There only was one parachute, and it wasn’t for me,
