Just the other day, you did something that will last forever.
Trekking swiftly towards Passover, I’m clinging tight to a bag of insight I grabbed from the forever mysterious celebration of Purim. Two holidays, only a month apart—yet conceptually so distant. Both about redemption. Both about wonder. But while the Pas...
The Rebbe’s gardening paradigm as an antidote to divisiveness and confusion
If I were hurtling down a rabbit-hole and a genie offered me one wish, I would likely request a tour guide. Now tell me that the past ten months haven’t taken us all on a dizzying Ozian spin. Look out the window of your space capsule and you’ll find you’v...
