There are no destinations only directions The story is told by Professor Gerber who was inspired to return to Judaism from the following one minute idea. A Chabad Lubavitch young man was giving a lecture in a university when Professor Gerber just popped in and he heard the young man saying “Two people are on a ladder, one higher than the other, who is higher?” “What a moron” thought Professor Gerber. “If the ladder is infinite then whoever is higher is no closer to the end, rather we can only say that one person is going up while the other is not or going down or perhaps both are going up, but neither can be higher.” Likewise as our destination, G-d, is infinite, no one is higher than the other, rather it is only the direction we are going in that counts.

The game the Arabs are playing I once met a Jewish lawyer in Manhattan who is in the “whose who” of lawyers – her fees are over a thousand dollars an hour and she has never lost a case – among the many things this genius told me was that a Japanese samurai writer (yes she read it in the original Japanese) wrote “from one word you can tell a thousand, from one sentence you can tell a thousand sentences.” In other words, often a single statement reveals thousands of mindsets at once, (and I prefer not to use the example she gave regarding a prominent botched up case.) Here is the one sentence that I am proposing which reveals the Arabs strategy of manipulating the west into its goal – namely the annihilation of the Jews of Israel. You see the Arabs started an open war with the Jews, this war was fought in 1947, 1967, and 1973, in each of these wars the open goal was to “push the Jews into the red sea.” Then they realized they are too impotent – thank G-d – to actually hurt us in direct confrontation, so they are now doing what is a simple grab-and-attack strategy. The first thing we must be absolutely clear on is that they have absolutely no historical claim on Israel. The following is the first two foundational statements of the PLO / Fatah “our peace Partners charter”: Text of the Charter: Article 1: Palestine is the homeland of the Arab Palestinian people; it is an indivisible part of the Arab homeland, and the Palestinian people are an integral part of the Arab nation. Article 2: Palestine, with the boundaries it had during the British Mandate, is an indivisible territorial unit. In other words, according to them, Read more…

Every generation has an extraordinary leader Professor Sofer a mathematician living in Hobart Tasmania began to take an interest in his roots, and so he opened the Tanach (Prophets) and he realized that in every generation G-d sends a prophet to inspire his people. He thus sent a mind message to the prophet of the generation that he would like communication. Less then two weeks later he sees a most unusual sight in Hobart, two chassidic looking Jews walking aimlessly down the streets. He approached them – can I help you, Why are you in Hobart? “Well we suddenly received an inexplicable message from the Lubavitcher Rebbe in New York, to travel to Hobart, but to be honest we are not sure why.” Professor Sofer spent many long hours in conversation and now he too sports a beautiful Lubavitch beard and has inspired tens of thousands of Jews on the beauty of Judaism. Of course in our generation this is non other than the Lubavitcher Rebbe, who is best known for his impassionate encouragement of those Jews schooled in their heritage to share it with those who due to circumstance, particularly following the holocaust, were not provided that precious gift. However the mission of our generation – the Rebbe – passionately once again declared has ended, and there is now a new mission, namely to bring about the coming of the messiah. This is done primarily in two ways – the first is obviously not to leave the previous mission (one of the most important ideas I ever heard was the word “And;” in other words, people often mistaken a new concept with “or!” rather we need to look at life with the word “And!,”) so currently the good deeds we do should be with the intent that they will Read more…
