Cool!

Cool! She's from Canada. So am I. I've been watching her all this time and I didn't know. She reminds me of my sister. The Russian Jews I know in the US started a business after being laid off, sold their business to a giant American company who approached them and became millionaires. The same thing happened to my cousin who married a Russian Jew. They weren't laid off. They started a company and sold it when they were approached and they became multi millionaires. The same thing happened to another cousin who married a Russian Jew sort of. Too bad he made it after they separated. Now she's making it on her own financially in terms of having started her own business and it is taking off.

Trying to Care for Failing Schools for Years

Dear Lori - Thanks for the encouragement. For more than 13 years I have been interested in helping our schools to succeed with simple ideas. I petition local schools and write letters to newspapers, etc. No one seems to listen, and I want to give up the cause. Now, I have a blog: SavingSchools.org . Thanks for your advice to keep trying. Shalom/Harry

May Hashem bless you for caring

May Hashem bless you, Lori, for caring and for inspiring others to care about the Jews from Ethiopia and the former Soviet Union, our brothers and sisters who still need our help.

setting and resetting goals

such a typical & recurring tragedy in Jewish history: we get torn down and we rebuild and move on - but some don't or can't move on, and so much is written down for our survival over the last 3300 years, is it possible that the Talmud doesn't have this written down? unlikely! it must be that we are the ones not learning the lessons for continuity and success, many from Gush Katif are still living in awful caravans, temporary dwellings that fall apart within just a few years, even ugly Northamerican mobile homes last over 20 years in our crazy weather conditions, for all the moving and resettling, how about a good manufacturer of prefabricated homes?? imagine the designing, engineering, plumbing, electrical, structural construction workers this would hire, the next step would be the movers, then installers, then the maintenance crews, etc. If the government doesn't pay for it, then the Palestinians should pay for it when the Israeli's agree to the move I noticed there are many opportunities Israelis' are not interested in pursuing, why? what's not in place? is it all governmental or is it spiritual? or both? sounds like too many Israelis just want to be like the nations of the world, and so they are, poverty included, and it's not priceless. It's painful. We must still care, but we must also stand firm on WHY Israel even exists, and on WHY we yearn to even be there -forget that it's not even personal, it's not about 'me', Hashem is calling us back Home! so if we have to stand in front of Him and account, what would we be trying to justify? or validate?
