Click Here For Rabbi Glenn's PowerPoint One of the most haunting lyrics ever put to song, lamenting the brevity of life, went like this: “It slips away, and all your money won’t another minute buy.” I know I’m giving away my age, when I quote a line from a 70’s song by Kansas; but since I could tell that many

I think most of us are familiar with Yeshua’s words in Luke chapter twelve: “From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked” (Luke 12:48). Well, to whom anything is given, something will be required! Our dear brother of blessed memory, Jhan Moskowitz,

Passover is approaching, and once again we will recite The Hallel. Of the psalms that make up The Hallel, I’ve really come to enjoy Psalm 114. The parting of the Red Sea, the encounter with God at Mt. Sinai, and the crossing of the Jordan are described pictorially, and almost humorously; “the mountains skipped like rams, the hills like lambs.”
This week Rabbi Glenn covered Isaiah 22. But most of the study was spent in Zechariah 12 with a special focus on Zechariah 12:10. In order to give the fullest possible understanding of Zechariah 12, he touched on the circumstances of the death of Josiah (2 Chronicles 35), which is mentioned obliquely in Zechariah 12, and the circumstances of the
Our parasha this Shabbat is entitled Tzav, meaning “Give the Command!” and covers Leviticus 6-8. It opens by describing the steps for restitution when someone has defrauded another over property. This includes finding lost property and lying about it or having something entrusted to you and lying to the owner saying that it was lost or stolen in order to

This week Rabbi Glenn studied Isaiah 19, the oracle against Egypt (waters drying up, no rain, famine, leading to desperation, and then God sends them "a savior and a champion") and the glorious future for the Middle East in the days of Messiah.

Our parasha for this Shabbat, spanning Exodus 18-20 is one of the most significant in all the Torah, because it describes Israel’s encounter with God at Mt. Sinai, and the giving of the Ten Commandments. Interesting, that this parasha should be entitled Yitro, the name of Moses’ father-in-law. Yitro (Jethro) comes to Moses with Zipporah and Moses’ 2 sons Gershom

When it comes to professional sports, let me just go on record as saying: Detroit is the place to live if you enjoy despondency! 2018 was another rough year for our teams. In spite of a lot of talented players, the Lions had a dismal season. The Tigers weren’t much better. It’s been 10 years since the Red Wings were
This week Rabbi Glenn covered Isaiah 10:20-11:10.
Introduction: Picture this: you’re taking a family road trip with your kids. Now, parents, I know you’ll be able to answer this question: What are the four words you DO NOT want to hear out of their precious little mouths?. That’s right “Are we there yet?” When our kids were little, Alexandra and I used to offer a financial reward
