Thu, 12 Jan 2017 12:00:00 ESTHi, People invest money. G‑d invests people. People invest money into whatever they think could give them back more money. G‑d invests people into those situations He knows could give Him back better people. So, this week, we read the story of G‑d investing His people into slavery in Egypt. Definitely a high-risk investment. But, without it, there would be no Torah, no eternal Jewish Nation, no concept of freedom or human dignity in our world.

Tue, 22 Nov 2016 12:00:00 ESTDear Friend, Much of my adolescence revolved around playing guitar and singing the songs of two nice Jewish boys—Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen. I suppose it’s inevitable that their influence should be somewhere in my writing now. So when Dylan recently snatched a Nobel Prize and Cohen passed on just within walking distance of my home, there was memory, there was introspection. I had to learn something from that past of mine that they had filled. Here’s what they told me: That with a few strums on the guitar and lyrics from the heart you have the power to move mountains. You can change the way a generation thinks. You can change the soul of a nation. And if a guitar and a raspy voice can accomplish that, maybe we should start believing that yet more change comes from within our own homes, our own communities, our own selves. That all it takes is a family where peace dwells on Friday night, a community where people know each other’s jo
