Mikeitz - Chanukah: Are People Inherently Good or Bad?

Do you ever doubt the inherent goodness of mankind? Can people reach a point of no return? What is the nature of our core essence? Are you a good person? On a scale from one to ten how would you rate yourself? How do you think your friends and family would rate you? We often wonder if the world around us is a “good” place. Many question the true intentions of our leaders. We worry about the future. The miraculous story of Chanukah celebrated by Jews all over the world provides a timeless message into the nature of humanity’s inherent moral struggle. The focal point of the story is centred around the finding of a small cask of pure oil which miraculously burned for eight days and nigh

Filled with trepidation, h

Vayeitzei: How To Play The Game When There Are No Rules

How do we play the game when there are no rules? What methods do we employ without sacrificing our integrity? Who is the true opponent in the game of life? As human beings we can get used to most things. However, there is one thing that challenges us most profoundly. Uncertainty. We all like to see the road ahead. We want to know what to expect in the future. It is not the challenges in our lives that make us truly afraid, but the unknown nature and timing of those challenges that unsettle us. If there was ever a man experiencing the loneliness that accompanies this state of being, it was Jacob our forefather, alone on the mountain top, as we find him at the beginning of our weekly To
