God’s Light for Physical, Mental and Spiritual Health

Light – “Or” in Hebrew represents the presence of G-d.  It represents His Sh'kenah Glory (The visible presence of G-d).  Our Messiah is the Sh'kenah of G-d, His visible presence given to the world to show us the way to live and the way to Him.  Just as humans need sunlight for physical and mental [...]

Why We Need Reconciliation

Reconciliation—to be reconciled, to a person, a group, even a family.  We often think in terms of forgiveness; however, forgiveness and reconciliation too often do not go together in our lives.  HaShem (G-d) offers both forgiveness and reconciliation.  He calls upon us to “forgive those who trespass (or sin) against us.”  So what is reconciliation?  [...]

Words: The Power of Life and Death are in the Tongue

As children we are taught “Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me.”  While that is a nice thought and an effort to protect our children from the damage words can cause, is it true?  Biblically, the answer is no. We are taught that Life and Death are in the [...]

Sex and Sexuality: A Blessing or a Curse

Sex and Sexuality. Many believers treat this subject as taboo or forbidden.  This attitude can be very destructive in our lives and our children’'s.

Humility: The Path to Healing

In typical Rabbi fashion, we will begin with a question. Are you ready?  Say the first thing that comes to your mind – What was the first sin? Times up – Did you say eating the fruit in Gan Eden (Garden of Eden).  If so, great choice, but there was one sin that occurred even [...]
