Happy All Year Round

The anticipation has been growing for some time. The short, cold, dreary winter days, which reflect our deep spiritual slumber, are just about behind us. I recall traveling to Florida one January and being elated upon seeing some bugs and lizards crawling on the sidewalk. The vibrancy of life is so refreshing. Thankfully, the day Rebbe Nachman called “the beginning of all beginnings” – Purim – is about to begin. What inhibits us from...

Master of Deception

Undoubtedly you’ve heard this story: one of the world’s foremost journalists, someone millions of people rely on to keep them informed about world events, has been accused of fabricating news stories. I think this shocks us because it begs an all-important question: “What is reality and what is nothing but a Hollywood production?” And: “How many other things have the media and other trusted agencies fed us that are total...

One Good Eye

It was finally Friday afternoon, almost time for Shabbat and some long overdue rest. Jerry had returned from a long overseas business trip and hadn’t been at his familiar seat in shul for several weeks. As the men filed in for the Minchah service, Jerry was greeted by the Rabbi with a hearty “Shalom Aleichem.” Jerry tried to pray properly, but his mind wasn’t at ease, there was just so much catching up to do. He pictured all the...

In The Know

Knowledge, wisdom, education … these are the cornerstones of a typical Jewish upbringing. Almost as soon as a Jewish baby is born, his or her parents have already established a college fund. This reminds me of a joke: A Jewish mother is walking down the street with her two little boys. A passerby sees the children and remarks, “What adorable children you have. How old are they?” The proud mother replies, “The doctor is seven and...

Striking It Rich

What if I told you that I know the secret to accumulating wealth? I bet you’d want to be my friend. Doesn’t the prospect of gaining this elusive knowledge get you a tad bit excited? But what if I told you that it’s available to each of us? Impossible, you might say. But that would be your mistake. God promised Abraham that his children would descend to Egypt as slaves, but would eventually be redeemed with great wealth. In fact, this...

Getting The Message

Negative emotions are extremely powerful and often completely debilitating. In fact, nothing has the ability to stunt our spiritual growth and life satisfaction like negativity. It’s essential for us to take the initiative to learn about ourselves and evaluate our reactions when dealing with such emotions. With Rebbe Nachman’s guidance, we can transform these emotions into great tools. Let’s deal with fear. Like everything else in the...

Good To Go!

Do I deserve to be redeemed? Do I deserve to be saved by God? We often ask ourselves this question, whether consciously or subconsciously. Consider: The average person has 60,000 thoughts a day. Shockingly, 95 percent of them are repeated daily and 80 percent of those thoughts are negative. We tend to judge ourselves overwhelmingly negatively, and that’s why we can question whether we are worthy of God’s attention and ultimate...

Building for Eternity

Every four years, in honor of the Olympic Games, tens of billions of dollars are expended and a virtual city is constructed – only to be abandoned a few weeks later. Thousands of years ago, our Jewish ancestors recognized what a waste of gelt this was (not to mention the excessive physical labor) and came up with a much more efficient plan: Why not build a portable, collapsible structure? Thus the Mishkan (Tabernacle) was born. Of...
