Your Time Has Come To Shine!

How nervous are you about the future? How does one deal with all the uncertainty which increasingly pervades our world? Is there a particular Jewish response to all the disruption we are currently experiencing? As usual we can gain insight by “Living with the times”. With that I mean and emphasize the “Spiritual Times”. It follows that each day is infused with a particular spiritual energy which serves as a moral compass for the Jewish people and through them for the whole of mankind. Today is the fifteenth day of the month of Av in the Jewish calendar. It is unique in its spiritual intensity. Indeed the Talmud (Taanit 26b) relates “There were no greater festivals for Israel than the 15th of

The Story That Captured The World's Imagination

Rarely does an event capture the imagination of the whole world. This past week millions around the globe were fixated on the unfolding story of twelve boys and their soccer coach who were trapped in a Thailand cave and their incredible rescue by Navy Seal divers under most the difficult conditions.

Moral Clarity In A World Of Confusion

As a young boy I visited the John F. Kennedy Presidential Museum in Boston which made a deep impression upon me. Walking around the vast campus one hears a vast array of some of the 20th centurie’s most eloquent speeches from John Kennedy and his brothers. The speech which made a most profound impact on me was the eulogy given by Ted Kennedy at the funeral of his brother Robert who was assassinated - because he spoke out in support of Israel - in June 1968. “My brother need not be idealised or enlarged in death beyond what he was in life, to be remembered simply as a good and decent man, who saw wrong and tried to right it, saw suffering and tried to heal it, saw war and tried to stop
