Yitro: Do You Think You Are Special?

Do you think that you are special? Is it synonymous with feeling superior to others? Do you feel less special if someone else also claims to be special? Has anyone ever told you that you are special? Do you believe them? Are the Jewish people special? If so, in whose eyes? What about others nations? This question has troubled Jews for millennia. Is this the reason behind antisemitism? To shed some light on the above we must first understand what the word “special” means. Interestingly we can find some guidance on this in this week’s Torah portion. In preparing the Jewish people for the giving of the Torah at Mount Sinai, G-d asks Moses to convey to them the following message: “You

Beshalach: Maintaining Our Focus In A World Of Disruption

Any journey into the unknown whilst sounding romantic can also be frightening. Especially when the challenge at hand is getting to know yourself. We have constantly been told by our parents and the friends we choose, how good we are. We accept their flattering appraisal because it is very convenient. It is therefore exceedingly difficul

Va'eira : How To Communicate Timeless Values To Millennials?

To what extent should we compromise our values for the sake of harmony? Is it possible to maintain absolute standards in a world where disruption is the future? To put it simply, what language can we use to communicate our timeless values to Millennials? Human beings are a complex species. On the one hand we are essentially an agreeable race. We become aggressive or violent only when we feel threatened or frustrated. Ideally we would all like to live in peace and harmony. On the other hand we all sense the need for discipline and structure in our lives. A value system that sets a common moral standard to which society at large should adhere. Without which we are in effect encouraging
