    I used to be a really jealous person.  I don’t know if that was my nature or if I was conditioned to be that way—growing up as a performer, it sort of seems that competition and jealousy would be things that go hand-in-hand.  Either way, I found it hard... read on

    By Rabbi Mark Borovitz

    I have been reading the newspapers and watching some movies and I am struck by the dissonance between these two media outlets. In the news, we read about the City of Bell and how the leaders raped the city with no regard or remorse. Today I read about a... read on

  • Poem for Redemption

    One is Hashem
