    Rabbi Shim'on ben Pazi noted a contradiction: [B'reshis 1:16] says, "God made the two big luminaries" and "the big luminary… and the small luminary".

    God made the two great lights: the great light for ruling the day and the small light for ruling the night, as well as the stars."... read on

    Greatness is not what tells you to be more Great. Is there a simple resting place in this world? They say the point of it all is to create a world for Gd to dwell. There is no stillness here.

  • Through Out The World: Sukkot #2

    By Emily Stern

    They say the gates of Forgiveness have closed on Yom Kippur,

    but walk through any gate you want-- the sukah has no doors.

    AND I've learned that every sukkah inside is connected, each sukkah is

    completely one  throughout the world, so you see it really is growing.

    Don't get too attached to the gate you're standing in

    ARE you using this moment to cover yourself

    or to really reveal? Turn the world inside out, and we're splitting at the seams. Turn the sukkah inside out, and the world is built of peace.

    The moment that we made it here

    I do in peace.
    I don't need this to be a sexual metaphor, or one of comfort. You don't need to have a face
    for me to love you. It doesn't need to even be... read on
