Vayeira: How To Gauge Your Egotism?

On a scale from one to ten how self-centred do you think you are? What gauge does one use to measure this trait? How do you think others perceive you? Human nature contains a self-serving bias. It is impossible to be absolutely objective about anything that affects us in some way. This bias blind spot is part of our DNA. There is a phrase attributed to the former United States Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld that goes like this: “There are known knowns; things we know we know. There are known unknowns; things we know we do not know. Then there are unknown unknowns; things we don't know we don't know”. When it comes to being aware of our own natural biases it would be most accu

Our lives are becoming increasingly controlled by our smartphones and social media. This ceaseless feed of information erodes our ability to know who we are and to be true to ourselves. We sense manipulation by forces which don’t have our bes


This morning as I dropped off my kids at school in Stamford Hill I passed by a local bakery. Because I was hungry i entered the store to buy a snack for myself. But then I changed my mind and decided instead to buy a special treat for my family in honor of Shabbat. What made me change my mind was an inspirational thought which I will share with you below. Most of us have engaged consultants for advice. Some charge substantially for their services. However some advice, often the most important, is available to all at no cost. In the opening chapters of the Bible which comprise this week’s Torah portion we read a single phrase that is perhaps the greatest advice given to mankind. In case you w
