Sukkot Meditations for the Ultimate Tranquility
Sukkot is a season for total tranquility, total bliss, total reliance on the One Above. That's what we're saying when we leave our comfortable homes to sit in a makeshift hut that could be blown away with a single puff of a strong wind. It's also good to ...
DIY Soul Repair
Only you can fix yourself. What does a particular day of the year have to offer?
Is it possible we've gotten these holidays all wrong?
Maybe we’ve got everything 100% wrong. Because if we’re thinking the holidays are backward, it’s likely we’ve got their meanings backward.
