Breaking the the cycle of daily routine then jumping back into it, is hard for most people. We call in “the Monday blues”, or say things like, “back to the grind”. Although for most, thats really all it is... but for myself, it’s not just the Monday blues. It’s coming back to something that is not exceeding my potential. Why can’t I just be happy with the consistent grind, of a “secure” “safe” job Is it because I don’t want to work I just want to have fun all day No. I love to work, I love to break a sweat, I love to accomplish, and finish things.. but I have more in me then a daily routine. I’m very grateful where I am presently. I am embarrassing it. Today, as I got ready. Washing my face, getting ready to clock in... I couldn’t help but think... “I can do more then this.... I WILL do more then this.” We are where we choose to be... #TheGypsyJew

Quando ero bambino mio padre piantò un albero di mele in un angolo un po' nascosto del nostro giardino e mi disse "questo è tuo". Ero molto piccolo e quel melo altrettanto. Non ci feci più caso. Poi sono cresciuto, me ne sono andato di casa e mi sono dimenticato completamente dell'episodio e dell'albero. Domenica l'ho scoperto, per caso, nascosto fra le altre piante: un arbusto enorme completamente "grondante" di mele. La coincidenza con il periodo di Rosh Hashanàh (il capodanno ebraico di cui la mela è simbolo e augurio) mi ha fatto sorridere... e tutto è tornato alla mia memoria facendosi presente, ora... vita che continua.

В нашей недельной главе Ницавим говорится: "В свидетели призываю на вас ныне небо и землю: жизнь и смерть предложил я тебе, благословение и проклятие. Избери же жизнь, дабы жил ты и потомство твое".
Действительно ли так уж нужно, чтобы Тора говорила нам избрать жизнь Какой человек в здравом уме выберет смерть
Одно из возможных объяснений – это то, что человек должен принять осознанное решение жить, а не просто существовать. Не имеется ввиду роскошная и насыщенная событиями жизнь. "Избрать жизнь" – означает предпочесть жизнь, полную смысла, жизнь, соответствующую ценностям и высокой цели. Имеет ли какое-нибудь ощутимое значение тот факт, что я живу на планете Земля столько лет Будет ли заметна разница, когда я уйду в мир иной Продуктивна ли моя жизнь Ценна ли она
Существует история о том, как Альтер Ребе однажды хотел дать реб Йекутиелю Леплеру благословение на богатство, но тот отказался от такого предложения, пояснив, что боится, как бы богатство не отвлекло его от духовных устремлений. Когда Ребе предложил дать ему благословение на долгую жизнь, реб Йекутиель согласился при условии, что его жизнь не должна быть "мужицкой" – с "глазами, которые не видят, и ушами, которые не слышат", когда не видна и не чувствуется Б-жественность.
На первый взгляд может показаться, что реб Йекутиель привередничает. Святой Ребе предлагает ему свое благословение, а он ставит условия! Но да, он избрал жизнь; жизнь, имеющую цель и результат, ту, которая действительно изменит мир в лучшую сторону. Он не хотел долгой жизни при условии, что она была бы пустой.
Находясь в преддверии Рош а Шана, давайте примем решение избрать жизнь. Давайте жить жизнью, полной непреложных ценностей и благородный поступков. И да будем мы благословлены хорошим и сладким новым годом.

Day 8 - Today we visited the #Jewish Quarters of #Jerusalem. First, we visited the oldest working Jewish #synagogue in the world, and the main Jerusalem synagogue, which was destroyed and rebuilt in the late 1900s. Our guide @hadara_arbel later took us to the roof of the building, where we could see all four parts of Jerusalem, the Jewish, #Armenian, #Christian, and #Muslim Quarters.
In the later half of the day, my family and I went to the @yadvashem Holocaust Museum in Jerusalem. The museum brilliantly displayed the horrific details of the #Holocaust, as well as a timeline of all the events leading up to WW2. The museum included a memorial to the six million victims of the Holocaust known as the Hall of Names and the Children’s Memorial, a dimly lit cavern consisting of simmering candles, representing each child who perished in holocaust.
As we left the museum, we saw a small park consisting of trees dedicated to each gentile or non-Jew who risked their lives to save and help the targets of the Nazi regime. Later, we visited a very picturesque neighborhood of Mishkenot Sha’ananim that was constructed outside of the Old a City Walls of Jerusalem and where the Montefiore Windmill is located. This mill was originally constructed to mill flour, however, the lack of wind and local wheat rendered it inoperative.
24 Elul - Rabbi Yisrael Meir HaKohen Kagan (1838-1933). The Chafetz Chaim.
The Chafetz Chaim was born in Dzyatlava (Belarus), in 1838. When he was ten years old, his father R' Aryeh Zev, died. His mother moved the family to Vilnius (Vilna) in order to continue her son's education. She later remarried and moved to Radin.
After marrying at 17 years of age, he continued his Torah studies, in spite of extreme poverty, spending every waking moment engrossed in Torah. The Chafetz Chaim who refused to accept a post as rabbi, opened a general store. His wife, insisting that he continue his Torah studies, managed the store.
In 1869 he founded the Yeshivah of Radin. When he was 35 (1873) he published his first book, Chafetz Chaim, a compilation of the laws concerning leshon hara - spreading gossip and slander. He ultimately published over 20 books, including Ahavas Chesed, on the mitzvah of lending money, Machaneh Yisrael for Jews serving in non-Jewish armies, and Nidchei Yisrael for Jews who moved to places where there were few religious Jews, particularly America.
He also wrote the Mishna Berurah, a six volume commentary on Shulchan Aruch, Orach Chaim, which deals with the general laws of daily conduct, such as prayers, tefillin, blessings, Shabbat, and Festivals. It consists of 6 volumes and took 25 years to complete.
In addition to spreading Torah through his yeshiva, he was very active in Jewish causes. He traveled extensively to encourage the keeping of the Mitzvot amongst Jews. He became one of the most influential rabbis during the late 19th and early 20th century. He passed away in Radun on 24 Elul 1933, aged 95.

Today is the 24th day of Elul. On this day in the year 1031 BCE King David married Batsheva. This is one of the most controversial and hardest to understand section of the entire Tanach. Commentators go to great lengths to explain the story both from a legal and philosophical standpoint. The controversy surrounds around the simple reading of the verses make it sound like David impregnated Batsheva while she was a married women. While the bible has no problem pointing out the flaws of its leaders the issue here lies in the fact that the Messianic lineage comes through David and Batsheva. So, we have to make sense of it.
Today is also the yartzeit of the saintly Rabbi Yisroel Meir HaKohen Kagen know by the title of his monumental work the Chofetz Chaim. The Chofetz Chaim was a prolific writer on subjects of jewish law and philosophy. He is best known for bringing awareness to the prohibition of Lashon HaRa or speaking ill of others. Knowing that gossip was, and to this day still is, so prevalent he made it his life's goal to try to get the Jewish world to be better in this areas. Today an organization known as the Chofetz Chaim Heritage Foundation carries on this work.

I’m a senior studying Psychology and Linguistics at @swarthmorecollege. When I’m not helping to run Swarthmore Students for Israel🇮🇱 as a @cameraoncampus Fellow, I’m the Chief Recruitment Officer of our chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta, and work in our Athletic Communications Department sportscasting 📣for the softball team⚾️🏃♀️. After I graduate👩🏻🎓I plan to pursue a PhD in Anthropological Linguistics. My pride in Israel stems from having grown up around individuals whose grandparents sought post-Holocaust refuge in the Holy Land, and an aunt who had to flee Haifa in 2006 when rockets were fired overhead during the outbreak of the second Lebanon War. I come from the perspective of Birthright having been my religious reawakening ✡ after having lost a major sense of my Jewish identity during my first two years of college🏢. As such my goal on campus is to reclaim the word "Zionist," which has been conflated with “racist” and “white supremacist,” and show that pride in the achievement of self-determination for your people does not implicate unequivocal support for any and all governmental proceedings that have or will ever happen." - Bekah Katz @kitkatz9088 #ThisIsWhatAZionistLookLike

about two weeks ago i posted a video showing the truth about the unrwa's schools, in which they teach hate. This is a @nytimes cartoon condemning POTUS right decision to stop funding unrwa.
first, why the fuck do they call terror incitement "education"
second, why should american taxpayers pay for the "education" of people who are not even refugees, (they're living under palestinian rule in what they call "palestine"🤷🏻♀️🤷🏻♂️), while their goverment spend millions of dollars in supporting terror and jihadism
and thirdly, why does unrwa even exist in the first place why do "palestinians refugees" deserve a special agency than all the other refugees in the world (they're the only ones that have a special agency for them, all the others refugees only have UNHCR) this is crearly double standar and it's only because they fight jews.
i'm tired of the fake news when it comes to arab-israeli conflict and new york times won't stop manipulating.

The absurdity of the headline, "Why was Min. #Farrakhan invited to #ArethaFranklin's funeral" Let me give Min. Farrakhan's detractors a brief lesson: When will White folks, especially some #Jewish White folks get it in their thick white suprematist skulls that the Black community absolutely loves, adores, appreciates and looks up to the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan. His unprecedented, uncompromising and unequaled 62-year labor among the down trodden and the oppressed, among #Black and poor people is why, even though he did not speak, he was received with such love and admiration by celebrity's and the Black clergy elite at the Aretha Franklin funeral service. And check this out, the admiration he received from the Black clergy is because he preaches liberation theology from the #Bible better than 99.9 % of all pastors, prompting many of them to invite him to speak at their #church and Rev. Jesse Jackson to jokingly call Min. Farrakhan "a frustrated #Christian preacher." Farrakhan's preaching is the embodiment of Ephesians 6:12: "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."
