  • Thursday, July 19 | Shabbos, July 21 ~ From Mourning to Morning

  • From Mourning to Morning
    Between Misery and Bitterness, Despair and Progress
    Thousands of years after she lies in ruins, the Jewish people still mourn their holy Temple. Hasn’t that window closed already? Can we really be so pained so many years later? The sages’ take on the proper method of grief turns this mourning into a propeller for growth and a look toward the joy of tomorrow.

  • Thursday, July 26 | Shabbos, July 28 ~ Bringing out the Best

  • Bringing out the Best
    Looking at Challenge as Opportunity
    "Comfort, be comforted, my children," declares G-d. Sounds great, but what’s the mystery of this double comfort? From the ashes of a sacked Temple to the ruins of our own lives, discover the balm for your aching soul the secret to grabbing those tests and slaying them forever.

  • Thursday, August 16 | Shabbos, August 18 ~ Unlocking the Hair Lock

  • Unlocking the Hair Lock
    The Secret of the Upshernish
    A prevailing custom in many Jewish communities is to leave the hair of a young boy uncut for his first three years. The first haircut is celebrated with joy and fanfare. What is behind this mysterious custom? Not so surprisingly, a lot. And it’s not just for kids.

  • Thursday, August 23 | Shabbos, August 25 ~ Mazal Tov, Mazal Tov!

  • Mazal Tov, Mazal Tov!
    Every Day Your Wedding Day
    How does that sound? Not the expenses of course, but the honeymoon. Sounds great, no? It does, but the reality is that every day is certainly not the wedding day. The hair-splitting genius of an early twentieth-century European Talmudist uncovers a fascinating idea about marriage that should help reignite that romantic spark every day.

  • Thursday, August 30 | Shabbos, September 1 ~ Mind over Matter

  • Mind over Matter
    The Tefilin Mind Game
    Do you find your emotions difficult to contain? Welcome to the human race, my friend: the heart is a wild thing. The good news is that we have a built-in control, and it’s called the mind. Funny enough, the two boxes of tefilin affixed daily to the head and the arm have a lot to say in this conversation. Find out how in this lesson.

  • Thursday, September 6 | Shabbos, September 8 ~ The Need to Be Needy

  • The Need to Be Needy
    Complacency Is the Graveyard of Growth
    As we turn our eyes to a new year, the liturgy and practices of Rosh Hashanah emphasize time and again how needy, how humble, and how downtrodden we are. Why the depression? The story of an emigrating Babylonian sage seeking new heights gives us a lot of food for thought about our position in life and what it takes to catapult to ever greater peaks.

  • Thursday, September 13 | Shabbos, September 15 ~ Jews in Shoes

  • Jews in Shoes
    Grounded Below, Turned Above
    Of course we need shoes. It’s no fun walking barefoot over rocks, or around the kitchen after that glass pitcher shatters. Shoes are just a part of life. But all of a sudden, when it comes to holy days, places, and times, shoes are literally flying off our feet. What’s behind these mandated shoe removals?

  • Thursday, September 20 | Shabbos, September 22 ~ Don’t Kick the Sukkah

  • Don’t Kick the Sukkah
    Religion Isn’t Just about Feeling Good
    Avraham serves angels and is rewarded with a sukkah. We sit in a sukkah and are to be rewarded in messianic times with a sukkah of Leviathan skin. The gentiles kick their sukkah when it’s too hot, and the Jews calmly walk out. Discover the meaning behind this bizarre sukkah medley.
