A stroke of the ‘sword’…

So as we said on our last post, one of my ‘swords’ is the pen…or the keyboard. So as I pondered about that revelation and wondered what that would look like, my mother pointed out … “Pamela….just read what you’ve already written! I keep telling you to write a book!” … Leave it to mothers to encourage you the most. I think, if I’m honest (and I strive to be), I already knew that one of my strongest strengths lies in the pen … I just didn’t connect it to a sword, as my friend Nitza had pointed out. That actually takes on...

Princess Warrior with a Pen for a Sword

A friend of mine, Nitza Moshe, spoke some words of life into my spirit today….she reminded me that I am a “Princess Warrior with a Pen for a Sword”.  That rang so true to my spirit. You see, I love words, I love writing, I love reading and many have said that my ‘words’ have touched them. Many, including my mother, insist I should ‘write a book’. So why don’t I? Motivation? Laziness? Distractions? … all of that and probably more. But I do have this little ‘ole blog…and I do post with all my heart. All types of words flow out...

Her Story…

is our story …… we are all ‘Esther’ in some way or another – whether walking with the face of Esther or the face of Hadassah ~ we are all one in spirit. The one who is hidden, and the one who is not, the one who is a queen in waiting and the one who is of questionable background ~ it is us. Sometimes we face things with openness and boldness, and sometimes with fear and trepidation, but the two faces work together – always. It is through both faces that we are able to walk this journey with confidence, and competence as we come together to recognize who we...

Esther ~ Day 2

Let’s continue…… So Esther kept her ‘Jewish’ identity hidden from the world around her. That brings up the time when others in the bible ‘hid’ their identity doesn’t it? Can you name a few? Let’s see….there was Moshe, Yosef, Sarai … just to name a few. Why would they need to stay hidden? Probably, the first and foremost reason would be survival, don’t you agree? Survival is at the core of every human being – and, I believe, God given. After all, the priority on God’s list is – LIFE (chai)! But what...

Hidden….Yet Revealed

One of my favorite books of the bible is, of course, the Book or Scroll of Esther. The amazing intrigue and mystique of this short story is laden with unbelievable hidden truths…..all in plain site. After teaching and holding workshops in previous years on the mysteries of this young Jewish woman named Haddasah, but called Esther, I thought it time to bring those notes back out of the closet and share them again. So join with me and let’s discover again the beauty of this story. **** Esther’s story is the story of the exiles of Israel who remained in the Persian Empire and...

Torah Portion #17 – Yitro

I am the Holy One your God. It is I Who brought you forth from the land of Egypt. Exodus 20:2 This is one of the most amazing and confusing Torah portions I’ve ever combed through – how about you? Have you ever considered a different understanding of this portion than the one you have been spoon-fed for years? Have you ever gone outside the box of religiosity and the dogmatic approach of theology to gaze into the looking glass of centuries past? Well, get ready beloved, you may vehemently object, but after you kick and scream and cling to your religious blanket, you may view our...
