Do you really care about your friends? Do you know what's really going on in their lives? Do you want to know? What about your spouse? Do you really listen to her or to him? Are you available when he or she really needs you? What about her or his dreams? Do you care to know? What about your children? What's really going in their minds and hearts? Do you think they really trust you? Do they really love you? How honest are you with them? What about your parents? Are you genuinely grateful for all that they have done for you? How often do you even think about this? Even if you did, is it possible to ever know. Why are we afraid to ask these questions? Is it be

Let's Go Crazy this New Year!

Millions of our people around the world will come together tonight to celebrate the Jewish New Year as our ancestors have done since the beginning of time.

Every time I go I try to penetrate a little deeper into the enigma of this unique legend. How could one human being possibly touch the hearts and transform the lives of so many In his day and in ours. As I stoo


This time last year I had the opportunity to visit a small town in Western Ukraine, called Medzibush. Driving on the narrow unpaved roads, passing the locals many of whom were riding horse and wagons, you get the sense that not much has changed over the past two hundred years. However, there is one thing that makes this place unique. It is the hometown of one of the greatest figures of modern Jewish history, namely the Baal Shem Tov. On my way to the ancient synagogue, I was struck by how one individual could have made such a huge impact on millions of Jewish people worldwide and which continues to reverberate resoundingly until today. The key to unlocking this mystery was in fact given to u


As we approach the New Year we find ourselves drifting towards a more reflective state of mind. Throughout the year most of us are forced to maintain a much focused mindset, especially during these highly volatile and uncertain times. However, it is both healthy and natural to periodically switch gear enabling us to step back and make an evaluation of our personal performance as human beings. One of the first areas about which we tend to think is the health of the relationships with the people with whom we are closest. For whilst we fully appreciate the vital importance of a healthy relationship, we nevertheless neglect to dedicate the sufficient time and effort needed. This week a friend of
