Show Me The Money!

I remember sitting in a shiur (lecture) a number of years ago and hearing an idea that I’d never heard before about money. There is a concept that Hashem figures out at the beginning of each year how much money you’ll be making for that year. So, should you lose a sum of money at… Read More Show Me The Money!

Last night was Neve Daniel’s 30th birthday and what a celebration it was. There were bouncy toys for the kids to enjoy, a ropes course for slightly older kids, hot dogs and hamburgers, and many vendors from the yishuv. It was, as most activities are around here, a very heimish, cozy, come-out-and-have-fun-with-your-neighbors type of evening.… Read More A Vision And A Dream
