Pinchas: Moral Courage 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 it

Balak: Don’t Be Afraid To Be Unique

Korach: Why Was I Born?

Why was I born? Is there any way to find out? Can I or anyone truly make a difference in this crazy world? So many powerful forces. So much hate, cynicism and anxiety. So unpredictable. Does anyone care about anyone anymore? Where have all the selfless people gone? The answer is, a resounding, YES. Yes we can make a difference. Yes we can discover our purpose in life. Otherwise G-d would not have created you and me. But first we must: Stop. Be quiet. Switch off the noise! Look into the mirror. Look into your eyes (for five minutes). What do you see? Most of us will begin to see a pure and innocent child. Filled with trust in the inherent goodness of man. Imbued with hope about the future. Be
