Jewish Journal

The 34th Miner and Rebbe Nachman

I have not blogged since June!  The summer and early Fall got away from me with my first trip to NYC since my accident, and lots of work and life!  Saw the play “Red” on Broadway with client Alfred Molina and helped client Diane Lane open the well-reviewed movie “Secretariat.”

However, yesterday’s spectacular rescue of the 33 Chilean miners reminded me to be publicly grateful for all I have and reminded me that the 34th Miner is Hashem!  It also reminded me to re-read and reflect upon the famous Rebbe Nachman’s books and his saying:  “Gevalt!  Never give up!!”.  I am also inspired to call upon my own LA community with gratitude including Rabbi and Rebbetzim Schlomo and Olivia Schwartz; Rabbi Mendel Schwartz and my friends at the Jewish Journal who lifted me up last year as I was (and am) recovering (well, thank Hashem) from my accident.  More next week….
