A Birdhouse For Every Bird

It feels like there are almost more choices here for a birdhouse then variations in dwellings you can buy.

Even if it just a little paint; sometimes that can make all the difference. 

Frankly, it’s not even that important how big or small, just as long as you have a decent roof over your head. 

In our crazy world, we can have a birdhouse for every bird, but still we don’t have homes for every person. 

Homelessness and poverty, whatever your race, color, or identity is still a big problem. 

Birds live in birdhouses, but many people still live on the streets.  😉

Sukkot: A Time of Divine Protection

Please see my new article in The Times of Israel called, “Sukkot: A Time of Divine Protection.”

Sukkot is the Jewish Festival of Shelter and of Ingathering.  

In these challenging times of coronavirus and before this eventful election, more than usual, we need G-d’s blessings to shelter and protect us, and to bless both the United States of America and the State of Israel that they should be safe for all of us and that the “ingathering” be not only of the harvest, but of all the exiles from the four corners of the earth to G-d’s Promised Land for the final redemption.

No, It’s Not Fort Knox

Did I just walk into Urgent Care or is this Fort Knox’s repository for gold bullion?


I don’t think I’ve ever seen this many surveillance cameras in one relatively small room that’s not related to national security! 


And there were even more cameras around me–they were freakin everywhere. 


I get that people are afraid and want security, but seriously over a dozen cameras in the entry/waiting room to see a doctor!


Did someone go a little overboard here?


Maybe they had a bad experience, who knows.


Still, this is beyond dystopian and never a private moment shall one have!  😉
