Happy Mother’s Day and Happy Lag b’Omer, Beautiful People! Our sages said, „Who is wise? One who learns from every person” (Ethics of Our Fathers, 4:1). The first person in our lives we have a chance to learn from is MOTHER. From her we learn kindness, caring, and most importantly, unconditional love. Sometimes, it’s not a biological mother who does the mothering in one’s life, as proven by a phone call I just received from my adopted son. Here is a musical tribute to all mothers by the great Itzhak Perlman and the renown cantor Yitzchak Meir Helfgot.

This year, Mother’s Day coincided with a Jewish holiday Lag b’Omer. It is one of the less known holidays, yet a very important one. We celebrate it by lighting bonfires in memory of Rabbi Shimon bar Yohai who was called „Botzina Kadisha” („The Sacred Lamp”) and whose teachings „illuminate the…

The Holocaust, miracles and revenge

Un comentariu

Inspiration from Zion: This is a Love Story

On April 24th Israelis will commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day.  This is not the same date as the International Holocaust Memorial Day. This date was chosen to emphasize the place of the Holocaust in the story of the Jewish people.

We do this by first celebrating Passover. One week later, we mark Holocaust Memorial Day.  Exactly one week after that is Memorial Day for IDF soldiers and victims of terrorism.  The following day is a joyful celebration, Israel’s Independence Day.

This pattern is deliberate. The message is very clear. The exodus from slavery to freedom is an on-going journey.  As we acknowledge during the Passover Seder: “In every generation [enemies] rise up against us, to destroy us, and every time God saves us from their hands.”

In other words, our very existence is a miracle.

The Passover story is relevant to our modern experiences. The lessons remain the same. The defiance…

5 easy things anyone can do to help Israel

2 comentarii

Inspiration from Zion: This is a Love Story

I’m writing this following a question from a friend overseas who asked me: “Besides sharing the truth about Israel, what can we do to help?” There are obviously many things that can be done. These are a just a few easy suggestions I put together to show how anyone, with little effort can make a difference.

What can I do to help Israel?

Spread truth –

The media war is just as important, and sometimes more so, than the war on the ground. There are more people involved in spreading lies than those involved and passionate about the truth. You can make a difference! Even a single candle can light the darkness.

Tomorrow we can go see him and hug him…

Inspiration from Zion: This is a Love Story

„So tomorrow we can go see him and hug him” I said. Lenny had woken me up to tell me that Haim had come home from the Gaza.

Haim is the son of one of Lenny’s childhood friends. I’ve known Haim almost a decade. Lenny has known him since infancy. He was always charismatic. Even as a small child. Haim has a friendly charm that makes you smile and an exuberant personality that can’t be ignored. 

He is a paratrooper and was one of the IDF soldiers on the ground in Gaza. Now he had come home.

Haim is just a few years older than Lenny’s sons and because of this Lenny had a visceral reaction to his life being in danger on the frontline. He imagined more vividly than ever before what it will be like to be in the position of a parent trying to go about his…

Love your neighbor as yourself…

3 comentarii

Inspiration from Zion: This is a Love Story

Israelis argue, complain and criticize. A lot. Israelis are loud, nosey, opinionated and brutally honest. Being polite or diplomatic is not our strong suite.

Living in Israel is not easy. Our „neighborhood” is not nice – this current war with Hamas is just one example… In addition, Israelis themselves can be very difficult.

So what’s the point? Why bother?

It’s very simple (and yet very complicated). The answer is LOVE.

Love your neighbor as yourself, as if he or she was you.  I’m sure this sounds like a nice theory to many but just that – a theory. In Israel it’s not theory, it is reality. It’s not something conscious and it’s not taught in school. It’s just considered „doing the right thing”, „being a good person”.

Israel is like a family. Brothers may beat each other up, may not even speak to each other but when one is bullied…

Israeli mother shields her daughter with her own body Israeli mother shields her daughter with her own body

Imagine you are walking down the road with your child. Sirens go off, warning of in-coming missiles. If you are lucky. You have 15 seconds to find shelter. There is a bomb shelter but it is too far away. What do you do?  A missile can hit you. It could hit next to you fling shrapnel that pierces your body. How do you protect your child?

In the picture you can see a mother in a southern town of Israel, caught outside with no way of protecting her child. Covering the girl with her own body she waits for the explosion. Where will it hit? A direct hit will kill them both. If shrapnel flies maybe she will succeed in protecting her daughter. She might not live through it but, hopefully her daughter will.

This is the reality for thousands of…
