Yaakov’s Three Lives

11 Tevet 5772 – January 5, 2012
The Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, zt”l, notes that Yaakov Avinu’s years can be divided into three periods.

Sensitivity Of A Tzaddik

10 Tevet 5772 – January 4, 2012
Yaakov Avinu spent the final seventeen years of his life in Mitzrayim. While there he lived in peace for the first time in many years and remained in that state for the rest of his life. Near the end of his days he called in his beloved son Yosef and made an impassioned request: “Please do not bury me in Mitzrayim.”

Life Is Like A Video Game

4 Tevet 5772 – December 29, 2011
For most of his life, Yaakov Avinu suffered tests, trials and tribulations. It seems his days were spent moving from adversity to crisis. Clearly he didn’t have it easy, and the suffering took its toll.

Why Did They Kill The Entire City?

How Did Yitzchak Eat From Eisav’s Shechitah?

28 Heshvan 5772 – November 24, 2011

In Praise Of Bubby

8 Tevet 5771 – December 15, 2010
The Gemara in Brachos says that one is not allowed to add his own praises of Hashem while davening. The Gemara explains that by doing so it could seem that what one added was the only praise missing, and that there are no more praises of Hashem. Similarly, Bubby, for one to try to mention all of your praises would be impossible. With that said I would like to mention a few points, without implying that this is all there is to be said.

A Living Megillah (Part Two)

20 Tevet 5770 – January 6, 2010
I write this column during the week of Parshas Vayechi, in which our father Yaakov imparts his blessing to his descendants. The Torah teaches that as he was about to give the brachah to Ephraim and Menasheh, the sons of Yosef, he suddenly posed a very strange and troubling question. "Mi eileh? - Who are these?"

Saying Goodbye To Yaakov Avinu

13 Tevet 5770 – December 30, 2009
Doesn't it make you sad? Every year, when we finish Sefer Bereishis, I feel like crying. There is nothing like being in the presence of our Fathers Avraham, Yitzchak and Yaakov and our Mothers Sarah, Rivka, Rachel and Leah.

3 Shevat 5769 – January 28, 2009

Man Serving Hashem … The Center Of Creation

20 Kislev 5769 – December 17, 2008
The brothers of Yosef referred to him as the "The Dreamer" (Bereishis 37:19). And, while the brothers seemed to have used the title in a disparaging manner, Yosef's life was, in fact, inextricably tied to dreams.

Jumpstarting Your Child’s Life: Parenting An At-Risk Teen

1 Elul 5767 – August 15, 2007
Imagine going for a walk one winter morning and finding your neighbor sitting in his car vigorously turning the steering wheel while the engine is shut off. When you ask him why he doesn't start the car, he responds that his battery died, and he will soon get jumper cables to give it a boost. However, before he does that, he would like to turn the front wheels away from the curb so that he can instantly be able to pull out of the parking space once his automobile starts.
