Healthy Active Lifestyle is a MUST!

One of my favorite quotes is “excess once in a while is moderation.”  Most kids today get overloaded with everything electronic, so much so, that it is affecting how they are supposed to naturally develop. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2229567/The-children-held-school-lazy-lifestyles-mean-t-stand-leg.html Physical is of the utmost importance, but so is individual creativity, the most powerful quote in the following article is “They don’t learn to …

Hashem Melech

    This amazing song has been remixed, so much fun.  Celebrating Judaism, Israel, and the source of it all.  We all support Israel in our own unique ways, the amazing people that live there and serve in the IDF.  Others support and protect with prayers and learning, and many help financially. At this point of my life I feel …

Intersectionality and Jews

We are all human, we are born, and we are for sure going to die one day. The video above is so intense, everyone was watching with hope, we don’t know them personally, but each of them is like one of us.  Why do we feel the need to separate everything?  In the Soviet Union on our passport it said …

Story of Survival

I am honestly shocked by the lack of response by the international community, and appalled at how media reports the horrific attacks on women, children, and elderly in Israel.  Did you know that the United Nations said it was just “human nature!!!!!!!!!!” http://www.timesofisrael.com/stop-the-incitement-stop-the-killing/ Incitement is everywhere, even in popular Palestinian music, you can listen at this link, http://www.pri.org/stories/2016-01-25/ramallah-some-hottest-pop-tunes-are-about-stabbing-israelis http://israelforever.org/interact/blog/the_power_of_a_misleading_headline My …

ALIGN

Today’s post is just random things that go together and make us feel good.  Each individual has certain gifts, talents, genes, skills, and life is about figuring out how we operate and balance ourselves at the optimal level. When you align with your purpose in this world, it is magic, like they say, when you love what you do, you …

Three lessons

Every Shabbat there are lessons, and I love to learn the deeper meaning of these lessons. Today’s portion of the Torah talks about the splitting of the sea, and how even though it was a miracle that people witnessed, it did not automatically make them 100% believe. Faith and trust comes from inside of us, and it is a choice, …

Just history, aside from religion

In the Soviet Union on our passport our nationality was Jewish, in America we passed for white, because on the form there was no box for Mediterranean or Slavic, and Judaism in America is considered a religion.  It is confusing, because since we originated as the twelve tribes, because of various empires and regimes, we have literately scattered all over …
