MOONWALK MONTHLY: AV - Tender, Brave Love 💗 What do you hear? 👂🏽

Shalom, Rabbi, I have a question. Why is it that when I experience true beauty, a mama lion serenely cradling her cub, a cub fully vulnerable and relaxed into her mama’s embrace, do I experience a pain in my heart? I immediately feel a pain and a fear that someone will harm either of them or that bad things will happen to them? What in me needs healing to let go of this fear and despair that beauty is under attack, that vulnerability and love will be destroyed?

Does Opportunity "Knock"?

Does Opportunity "Knock"?

הִזדַמְנוּת - OPPORTUNITY.

At the root of the the Hebrew word for opportunity is the word for time, or moment. 

What does opportunity look like and sound like, in your life? What is the potential of one moment to alter our lives? Here's a peak into Moses' life and just one of those tiny, GIANT, moments. 

How to Stop

How to Stop

Each day we light fires and put them out. We break things and build. We plant and harvest, tear and smooth. Six days a week we effort, tirelessly to create. In the year 200 C.E., the rabbis of the Mishna got radical. They took a list of 39 artisan techniques -- threshing, winnowing, sowing, skinning, weaving and tearing -- and transformed it from a checklist to create into an invitation to be created. Shabbat is one of these nights.
