Shemini – “The Eighth”

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.”

Isaiah 19

Yitro – “Jethro”

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

Are We There Yet?: Part 2

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

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?.
