Scary Model of Cancer

Saw this at a doctors office in one of the patient rooms. 


At first I wasn’t even sure what it was. 


Looks like a stomach.


What are those globs?


Oy, they represent malignant tumors (from what I understood reading the fine print). 


Really makes it hit home when you see it in front of you on display like that. 


So much suffering from illnesses like cancer.


G-d should have mercy. 


We really need to find “the cure!”  


Imagine what a day that will be.  😉

The Apollo 11 Mission: 50 Year Anniversary

Remembering the Apollo mission that landed a man on the moon on July 20, 1969 (50 years and 1 month ago yesterday…sorry, I’m late on this post). 


Thought this model (scale 1:48) of the command ship and lunar lander in the NASA store was perfect. 


It truly is miraculous that Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldin made this journey.


In just 8 days, they made the round trip between the earth and the moon, traveling about 240,000 miles each way. 


And they walked on the moon for about 3 hours–I want to try that!


Even until today, the U.S. remains the only country to have actually put men on the moon (total of 12). 


“One small step for a man; one giant leap for mankind.”


Now it’s high time that we get ourselves to Mars already and colonize it!  😉

An Arrogant Model Who Defiles The Holy Temple

Please see my new article, Naked Before G-d, in The Times of Israel. 

“In such a G-dly place [as the Kotel], where we are all spiritually naked for our actions before our Maker, [Belgian model,] Ms. Papen displayed not soul, but her haughty flesh.”


And like the Sotah in the bible, who drinks of “the bitter waters” for defiling the sanctity of her marriage, Ms. Papen will most certainly come to see the consequences for her defilement of the most sacred place of Judaism. 


I wouldn’t want to be her, seriously! 😉

THE MIGHTY MERKAVA IV

What an amazing birthday gift from my beautiful kids. 


A model of the awesome Merkava IV battle tank from Israel. 


They know how much I love this tank which the brave soldiers of the IDF use to protect the Holy Land of Israel. 


As a son of Holocaust survivors, this gift left me so emotional and literally brought tears to my eyes. 


One of the real tributes of the Merkava is that unlike almost every other tank in the entire world which has its engine in the rear to protect it from enemy fire…


The Merkava IV has the engine in the front to protect the lives of the Israeli soldiers who man it. 


To the Jewish people, it’s not the tank that is important in and of itself, but it is its ability to protect each and every sacred life behind it. 


That is the noble creed of the Israelite people–nothing is more valuable than human life. 


70-years after the founding of the State of Israel–established from the very ashes of the 6,000,000 murdered in the Holocaust–I am so proud to say that IDF, despite being under almost constant threat from enemies near and far, protects the people and country with the utmost bravery, human dignity, and as a true light unto the nations. 


They are true heroes! May G-d Almighty bless each and every defender who stands watch over the Holy Land, and may He speedily bring a true and lasting peace to us all.

Emphasis On The Eyes

Vogue Paris.jpeg

Really liked this picture that my daughter, Rebecca, showed me in Vogue Paris.


The lady has this amazing tattoo around her eyes.


The way the lines come out and around, flowing from the ends of her eyes, is so awesome.


The dark and exotic swirling emphasis around the blue eyes makes her look deep, mysterious, and undeniably sexy.


Mike Tyson and his facial tattoo has nothing on this model.


Also, reminds me of when Rebecca, as a kid, asked me joking around, “What does Y-E-S spell?”


Okay, how easy is that, “YES.”


Then she said “What does E-Y-E-S spell?”


And not thinking, I fall for it and blurt out E-YES.


Man, you don’t know how to spell EYES–stupid, stupid, stupid! 😉

New And Hip

New And Hip

So this is what a new hip looks like.

Well almost, anyway–this is a small-scale model of one.

About 300,000 people per year benefit from this procedure in the U.S.

Thank G-d for such medical advances.

I don’t know what people did in earlier times having to live with the pain and loss of function and mobility before they had this available.

My father always told me that the doctors are G-d’s messengers and they only know and can do what G-d tells and enables them to do.

In that sense, a good doctor is really an angel of G-d’s mercy.

It’s amazing and miraculous! 😉
