The Solar Eclipse Within If you can observe it, recognize it and understand it, it must be found somewhere within you. Yet more: Anything you observe is teaching you something about something inside of you. Something vital for your Divine mission here on earth. Yet more: The truth of each thing is the lesson it comes to teach you. Because if a thing enters your world, there could be only one reason: So that your soul could better fulfill the mission for which it is sent to this place. If so, if there is anything you want to understand to its depths, you must first find it within yourself and listen to what it is teaching you. And the Torah is your guide to finding it there.

On the plane from TLV to LAX, 05/23/2017 My mother has passed on. And her words—I can’t recall her words. It’s true. Don’t ask a son for a biography of his mother. He never really left her womb.Don’t ask a son for a biography of his mother. He never really left her womb. How much can you see from inside a womb? And in the sense that he did leave her womb, he never escaped her embrace. He may have spent his entire life wriggling his way out of that embrace—but then he was preoccupied with the embrace, with his attempt to escape, with declaring his own identity.

I Jew, You Jew, I Tefillin, You Tefillin - How the Tefillin Campaign Radically Changed the Way We Think About Being Jewish.

Fri, 02 Jun 2017 12:00:00 EST

Because if any Joe right off the street (and right there on the street) can be asked to wrap those leather boxes on his arm and head—whether he professes to believe in G‑d or is an avowed atheist, whether he stands for Israel or for BDS, whether he believes the narrative of the Jewish people or denies it or never even heard of it— just because he has a Jewish mother, then Judaism can’t be an ism, can’t be an ideology, can’t be a religion and certainly can’t be defined by membership dues.
