7 & the Redemption

Please see my new article in The Times of Israel called “7 & the Redemption.”

There can be no doubt that the long-awaited completion of our redemption and the coming of the Mashiach by the Jewish year 6,000 (the beginning of the seventh millennium) is established no less than the Shabbat, which is the seventh day of every week for us. The Shabbat, in fact, is considered a covenant between G-d and the Jewish people, and so too, according to Maimonidesโ€™ โ€œ13 Principles of Faith,โ€ we trust in the coming of Mashiach.

Comfy In The Airport

Sure, make yourself comfortable,

Take your shoes off. 

Put your feet up. 

Wrap your legs around some luggage. 

Recline and put your head back into the pillow.

Put in your ear buds and listen to some music.

Have something to drink.

Take a few extra seats.

Relax and enjoy.

Flying the friendly skies.  ๐Ÿ˜‰

Space Boy Is Dead Meat

Debate in the Wall Street Journal about sending radio communications billions of light years away to communicate with aliens. 

Given man’s destructive nature to man, why would we want to entice aliens to come here and do to the world what Russia is currently doing to Ukraine. 

Moreover, why would we court disaster and give them a celestial roadmap to get to earth?

Our scientists may know science, but they are nuts to want to bring ET destruction to us.  ๐Ÿ˜‰

Short of Closet Space

So what do you do if you are short of closet space or if your wife throws you out of the house?

Of course, you hang your clothing on a tree!

Calvin Klein shirts too. 

I wonder what happens when the squirrels come out.  ๐Ÿ˜‰

Shabbat: Time Vs. Space

Please see my new article in The Times of Israel called “Shabbat: Time Vs. Space.”

When we choose to keep the Sabbath, we mark a day of the week in time, where we reject all the worldly pursuits of space and materialism in lieu of recognizing that there is a higher power, G-d Almighty, and that as Ahmari says ‘everything else is ephemeral and passes away with time.’

What we do to make things holy in time rules over what we do purely physically in space, that nothing but G-d is timeless, and everything material reverts back to its origins and is gone from time as if it never even was. In the end, we need to live our lives with the forethought that the spirit goes to the everlasting afterlife, but the body goes to the physical grave.

Geometric Shapes Inspire

I like these geometric shapes sort of just hanging out there. 

They’re interesting in that they speak to a person, but it’s left up to your imagination what they are actually saying. 

Feels a little futuristic and from alien space. 

Words may mean nothing, but shapes can be a universal language. 

Go figure!  ๐Ÿ˜‰

Just About Says It All


Story of human civilization in 2 minutes by Joe Bush



History majors can probably add some, but overall completely awesome!



Maybe this is a glimpse of what it’s like to have a G-d’s eye view of the world–where time and space are inconsequential.ย 



Looking at this, are we almost at the end or are we just on the verge of a new beginning? ย ๐Ÿ˜‰
