Recently published articles about parshat Chayei Sarah that I've enjoyed:
- "Start a Jewish Family" by Rabbi Berel Wein
- “Actions, Not Words” (Pirkei Avot – Chapter 1, Mishna 15b) by Rabbi Dovid Rosenfeld
- "Because Avraham Had a Hard Day, Efron Should Suffer?" by Rabbi Yissocher Frand
- (Added Sunday) Eliezer: A Lesson in Responding to Rejection by RWAC
I'd like to extend my thanks to Jon Abbett and his family, for sponsoring Shabbat Morning Kiddush at our shul "with thanks to the Almighty for the kindness He has bestowed upon the 2007 World Champion Boston Red Sox."
Unrelated, but something cute and fun: Dira 6 Eliyahu Hanavi music video
("dira"= Hebrew for "apartment")
I also enjoyed Ezzie's favorite video by Sir Ken Robinson, a humorous and insightful 20 minute rant on creativity. (He says: "My contention is that creativity now, is as important in education as literacy.")
Ezzie also points to a beautiful and inspiring post by The Corner Point called Human Becomings. It moved me so much that I forwarded it to our school's kindergarten teachers and two people who are planning to teach at the kindergarten level.
