With that being said, here …

Rosh Hashana

Whenever I meet someone, I love to hear about their roots, background, culture, tradition, and …

What do you allow your children to do?

Elsa Rebekah Monterroso  I’m not entertained by this post because it’s condescending and judgmental towards children. Children will play with whatever they find in their environment… if I give a child this box of crayons, some paper, sticks, glue and simply talk with them, you will understand that the child is right, he only does what’s allowed. #childrenareawesome #wehadourchildhood#talktothemandtheywilllisten It …

Proud of ISRAEL, Proud of California

BLATANT

bla·tant adjective (of bad behavior) done openly and unashamedly. “blatant lies” This is the word that comes to mind with what is happening in the United States and the rest of the world in relation to Jewish people and Israel.  I am shocked by, UCLA: http://heatst.com/culture-wars/anti-semitic-bds-movement-shuts-down-pro-israel-perspectives-on-campus/ and Berkeley: https://www.algemeiner.com/2016/09/01/campus-watchdog-upcoming-palestine-course-will-increase-antisemitic-atmosphere-at-uc-berkeley/ “Based upon the syllabus, the class treats Israel as a settler …

ENERGY

  The concept of energy is fascinating to me, everything around us is energy, and inside of us we have energy.  Peole are attracted to our energy, and that is why different people like different things and there is not one fit for everyone.
