Shabbat Ponderings before SUKKOT!

Updated note: This came across my blog feed from five years ago, felt it was still good to share …..and while my oldest son is now home among us, his father and his only brother, Jason are here only in spirit. But through the tears, my heart rejoices for the blessing of having Jim home and all of them in my heart! 10-2-20 Updated updated note: all of the above … only one year later 2021 Today is a day of Shabbat…a day of peace and blessing and yes, I must admit, a bit of testing out the Sukkah a few days before the Feast.  The tiny makeshift canopy blowing in the wind above...

2021 … repeat of 2020?

Dear beloved…..here we are – one week into the New Calendar Year and nothing but continued chaos.  The year 2021 appears to be just a 2020 Part 2…. So how do we go forward from here? Are we that believe in the greatness of our country, who stand for equality, freedom of religion, speech and all other God-given rights on the ‘wrong side of the law’ now? May it never be so! GOOD MORNING FUTURE! It truly is time for a GREAT RESET! But let’s remember who actually is putting his finger on that BIG RED BUTTON! It is the Great “I AM” … no matter...

The Revelation of …..

The Revelation of …..

THE REVEALING! This week’s Parsha (reading) of the scriptures concerns the revealing of a man whom many presumptiously thought dead. When his brothers turned against him in anger, threw him in a pit for being what they thought was arrogant and presumptious, and then finally sold him off to some unscrupulous gangs traveling along the road to Egypt….they thought they were rid of their ‘problem’. Not so. Nothing is ever that simple! We ourselves try to get rid of our problems by dumping them into a pit, passing them off to an unsuspecting soul and believing that we have...

December 25, 2020

An interesting date, to be sure – especially in the year we are trying to forget …… 2020. Some call it Christmas Day, some Friday, others Shabbat. I’m of the latter group and while I do still have lingering snowflakes dancing in my head and memories of mountains of presents flickering in the recesses of my phyche….they are simply distant places that once occupied time. Now, as I look back and contemplate on all that has gone on in my almost 70 years, I realize that each and every stop along the way was an important learning curve,  a step in the journey of my...

Kislev ~ New Month

Kislev ~ New Month

Kislev (כִּסְלֵֵו) The biblical calendar brings us to the month of Kislev (כִּסְלֵֵו). It is the ninth redemptive/ecclesiastical month, if we use Nisan as the first month or the third month of the civil calendar – our November-December. And as we’re sure you’ve noticed, the days are getting shorter and the nights a bit longer….night around my neck of the woods comes about 5:30pm. Kislev is also known as the ‘month of dreams’ probably due to the fact that it is not only the darkest month of the year but it also contains the winter soltice. And to top that,...
