Cinco de Mayo Delights For Your Next Date

As a snack this Shabbat, I am serving guacamole in honor of Cinco de Mayo. I love this creamy, healthy condiment and look for any excuse to shmear it on challah, tortillas and my favorite enchiladas.

Hits & Mrs: How Do You Like Your Eggs? Frozen?

With a large number of female clients in their late 30s and early 40s, I’m constantly faced with the question, “when should I start to think about freezing my eggs?” Modern women are focused on their careers and busy enjoying life when they suddenly look up and realize that their biological clock is running out of batteries. If you haven’t found Mr. Right by age 35, does that automatically mean you should throw in the towel?

How To Be Holy

God instructs Moses to tell the Jewish people: “You shall be holy, for I the Lord your God, am holy” (Leviticus 19:2). How does one make oneself holy? The remaining 35 verses of Leviticus 19, however, offer specific mitzvot to help one achieve this goal.

17. Is The World Broken? (Part 2)

Calamities happen – large and small. People die. You miss the bus. It rains. Wars begin. Children starve. You forget your lip balm. Are these things proof that the world is falling apart? While it may seem wrong to put all of these things in the same category, they are all ways in which the world fails to conform to our desires and our plans. It may seem funny to state it this way, but really what we are saying is, “The world is good when it is doing the things that I think it should and that make me happy – and when it doesn’t, that is proof that the world is falling apart.” Stating it in this way allows us to see how limited our thinking really is. In order to have a world that makes everyone on the planet happy, we would have to have seven billion different worlds, each world tailored to the preferences of each individual human being. Obviously, in our present world, that is not the way that it goes.

Chaim Weizmann

Many of the greatest names in Israeli history belong to leaders of military battles and to eloquent spokespersons who rallied the Jewish people to fight for a modern homeland. Chaim Weizmann’s field of “battle” was the game of diplomacy. His great skill in this most delicate realm made it all the more appropriate that his final title was that of the first President of the State of Israel.
