Parashat Beraishit And the Power of PrayerNo CommentsRead more
The beginning is epic- a silent cacophony of swirling, dark, primordial abyss. The wind of G-d hovers over the waters, and whispers the potential of what could be. From deep within (or beyond?) this primordial chaos, a voice is heard. “Let there be light.” Boom! The words crystallize into light. And so continues the story of the very beginning, Hashem speaks and brings every detail of the known (and unknown) universe into being.
In Parshat Bereishit, we relive the creation.

The Transformative Power of DancingNo CommentsRead more
In which body part does a person feel joy? Joy is felt in the heart and the mind. Yet, when you smile, your mouth begins to feel it. When the joy is even greater the hands might catch on and start smacking each other with excitement, most commonly known as clapping.
