A brand new way of seeing God in His hiddeness.
A recent survey asked kids what they want to be when they grow up. Amazingly, the top answer was "famous". We live in a time that is currently in the grip of a cult of celebrity. The question is, why? In this talk, I look at some of the spiritual underpinnings to this phenomenon, especially with regard to the immortality of the soul.
How does forgiveness work? What is sin anyway? How do I get forgiven? And what does all this have to do with the Incense offering by the Kohain Gadol, the High Priest, in the Holy of Holies? In this week’s talk, go to the heart of the most special day of the year to try and fathom what is going on. With lots of love and blessings for everything beautiful in the new year!
It’s time to start getting ready for the New Year! The question is how? A study of the zodiac sign of Elul (the Jewish month that precedes the New Year) contains within it a formula for success.
In the wake of the tragic events in Colorado, we look into the nature of art, what it is and isn’t, what it can be and perhaps, what it shouldn’t be. We also discuss what “evil” is, and try to demystify what is often too overwhelming a term.
In this week’s talk, we discuss the difference between mysticism and superstition, strategies for battling negativity, Moshe breaking the tablets, the fast of the 17th of Tamuz and the period of the three weeks.
What is the purpose of death? Is it forever? What is this world for? And what is this trampoline business about?? In this week’s talk, we mourn the loss of Micol Cohen, a great person who left us way too early, read an awesome piece she wrote http://www.aish.com/sp/pg/Micols_Gift.html and try to wrap our minds around life’s most mysterious chapter.

Holy Brother: Inspiring Stories and Enchanted Tales about Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach
This may be my favorite Jewish book of all time. It’s a collection of first person accounts of people’s encounters with Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach. You’ll literally laugh, cry, be inspired beyond belief and want to be a better person.
The Wisdom in the Hebrew Alphabet
From the very first Kabbalistic work, through the Talmud, through an impressive array of rabbinic literature, great minds have found the Aleph-Beis to be a gold mine of wisdom and guidance. This fascinating best-seller weaves these golden threads into a glorious tapestry, presenting hundreds of ideas and comments on the Aleph-Beis, including: the Aleph-Beis as the force of Creation, as a primer for Jewish living, and as a fountainhead of Torah insight and mystical meaning. The product of decades of learning, thinking, and teaching by the revered educator, lecturer, and community activist Rabbi Michael L. Munk. A treat not to be missed.
