How Not to Keep Israel from Bombing Iran

26 Elul 5772 – September 12, 2012

How To Make Purim Sameach!

2 Adar 5772 – February 24, 2012
There’s nothing like a holiday where one is required to be happy to bring out the grouch in all of us. But we should all be excited to greet Purim. Not only because of the beautiful miracle that occurred, the lessons of emunah and the role of the Jewish woman that Megillas Esther teaches us, but also because it’s the only twenty-four hour holiday that we celebrate here in Chutz L’Aretz, and it has merely four mitzvot! How simple is that?

The Fear Of Abandonment: A Self-Fulfilling Prophecy (Part II)

28 Iyyar 5771 – June 1, 2011
In part one (Family Issues 04-29-2011) we mentioned that often a symptom of the anxiety disorder, the fear of abandonment, is a strong need to be in control.

The Fear Of Abandonment (Part I)

24 Nisan 5771 – April 28, 2011
The fear of abandonment, also known as autophobia, is an anxiety disorder characterized by an acute fear of being alone. Often, one of the symptoms of this particular anxiety is a strong need to be in control. This is because one has previously lost someone close through separation, divorce or death and may unconsciously blames his or herself for the event. When this happens, any type of separation may traumatize the person, even the marriage of his or her own child can be viewed as a life-threatening event.

Children of Shame
