FIGHT FOR LIFE - Rabbi Akiva Tatz, M.D.

If you are ever at a wedding in Jerusalem, and as one of the antics that guests perform to fulfill the mitzvah of causing joy to the bride and groom, you see a large, lithe figure fly through the air over six or eight crouching people and smash a heavy board in mid-air... Read More



INDIVIDUALITY WITHIN A SYSTEM - Rabbi Akiva Tatz, M.D.

A high level of order is where the components of a whole are organized and connected in such a way that they blend into a unified entity. This composite entity functions precisely because of the harmonious blending of its components. Read More



GLOBAL VISION - Rabbi Chaim Zwick

We live in a time of abundant opportunity. However, with opportunity comes responsibility. Responsibility to ourselves, our communities and to all mankind. We are the first generation in modern times to understand that we are faced with a difficult choice. Either we... Read More



WORLD OF ACTION - Rabbi Akiva Tatz, M.D.

DOUBT AND CERTAINTY - Rabbi Akiva Tatz, M.D.

A close examination of human difficulties will reveal that at their root lies doubt. Not knowing with full confidence what one's direction should be is the most energy-sapping element in our lives. In depth, all our existential tension and anxiety stem from doubt. In isolated... Read More



BUILDING BLOCKS OF CONSCIOUSNESS - Rabbi David Aaron

How would I act if I really believed that Hashem's presence filled my life, my home, my office, my city, my world? How would I speak to my wife and kids? How would I treat the stranger? To the extent that I think, speak, and act in accordance with this... Read More
