A Far Reaching Whisper

My talk was called "Divine Whispers." I would be sharing an array of stories, weaving them together to create a message of how even in the "ordinary" events of our lives, we can find a "divine whisper"-a lesson specially scripted for us. The talk was the highlight of a lovely afternoon and evening program arranged by Chabad emissary Chana Alta Mangel in Blue Ash, Ohio. The food, decor, workshops and program, like Chana Alta herself, were fabulous, offering a perfect balance of beautiful physical and spiritual nourishment.

When You Mess Up

Ever wonder what might have happened had the first Adam reacted differently? I don't mean if Adam hadn't have eaten the forbidden fruit. I believe that somehow, on some level, that was a necessary component to our being human. We're not meant to be perfect angels, or mechanical robots, always following directions explicitly, and always doing the right thing. Temptation and failings, challenges and adventure are meant to be a part of our human journey.

Can You Teach Self-Worth?

She doesn't just walk; she practically glides along, with a light-hearted bounce. Her laughter is infectious, her giggle ever-present, even during the dull periods of the day. Every moment is an opportunity, a learning experience. Her world is a wonder to discover and she feels proud of even her smallest achievements.

The Little Flame

Once upon a time, there was a little flame that glowed brightly. Wherever this little flame went, it brought light and luminosity.

Life’s Detours

A few years ago, we were headed back home from a family vacation in the Laurentian Mountains.

Get Me Out of Here!

The black fly was steadily crawling up and down my kitchen window screen. It was desperately − but methodically − seeking an escape, to get beyond the imprisoning panel of the screen, into the wide, open world.

Religion Is Not A Quick Fix

Not only was I raised in a "religious" home, but with my father serving for the last 50 years as the rabbi of our − at first fledging, and now, vibrant − Toronto community, I was given the endearing designation of being "the rabbi's daughter."

Getting Past The Whatever Attitude

A parent turns to her teenaged son and asks, "What's bothering you?" "Whatever," answers the kid with a disconsolate shrug.

Did She Cry Because Of You?

One of my favorite teachings from the Talmud is a marriage-related lesson.

Allergies!

My day begins as a perfectly sunny, breezy, late summer morning. But then we meet.

Garbage

For the past two years, any time we've met our neighbors on our front lawn, near the street's curb, the discussion has invariably turned to the very pressing issue of... garbage.

Tending The Garden

I'm often asked why it is that men played such a major role in Jewish history.

As Sweet As Candy

At this time of year, honey, and the sweetness it represents, plays a major role in our celebrations.

Self Do It!

A little past her second birthday, my toddler has entered into a new phase of independence.

Life In Fragments

I'm relaxing on the sofa watching Shira, my 11-year-old, patiently teaching baby Sara Leah how to build a tower with her blocks, when the tranquil peace is suddenly shattered.
