THE PASSOVER SEDER: AN EXERCISE IN COMMUNICATION WITH MILLENNIALS!

The survival of the Jewish people has got to be one of the greatest miracles in history. So many throughout the ages have risen and attempted to destroy us, yet our people have not only endured the onslaught but have become stronger and even thrived as a result. This Friday night, millions of our brothers and sisters throughout the world will gather around the Seder Tables - as our ancestors have done for thousands of years - to transmit this remarkable story to the next generation. This represents an enormous challenge. Smartphones and social media have transformed the way young people behave. How then do we transmit our values and traditions to a generation so different to ours? A small

CREATING PEACE AND HARMONY IN A FRACTURED WORLD

Are human beings naturally inclined to living alone or to being part of a community? Do we seek to belong to something beyond ourselves? This week’s Torah reading begins with with the words “And Moses assembled... the children of Israel”. Moses achieved something unique by creating a united community representing millions of Jews. Not an easy task by anyone’s estimation. How did Moses do it? What is the secret formula to uniting such a multitude of individuals?
