MORNING INSPIRATION  There is never room for bigotry, racism, or ill treatment toward anyone. There is never room for actions of abhorrence proclaiming to be just. There is never room for hatred. There is always room for kindness. There is always room for love. There is always room for respect. Allow room for all that can make the moments of our world better ones.     I wrote this Morning Inspiration after the march in Charlottesville when slurs of hatred... Read more

Finding Hope in Challenging Times This past week has been a challenging one. Sitting in my Tel-Aviv home, recovering from a second round of Covid, I listened as the voices of equality, peace and unity were being quieted. I had moments of grief, sadness and frustration. Some were harder than others. I believe it is my continuous close relationship with hope that sustains me. Hope is a necessity; we mustn’t stand in her way. She doesn’t cure an illness nor... Read more

I listen to stories. I feel incredibly privileged to be the audience of so many storytellers. Some schedule time to share their words, others find me unexpectedly. Both are a beautiful source of inspiration and gratitude for the language of the heart. This weekend I flew to Pittsburg for a book signing, as well as a Naot footwear donation. Sitting behind my colorful book table, pen in hand, stories of humanity lined up. A young woman approached, her face covered... Read more

When I sit down to write my Morning Inspiration, I have a ritual of recalling a moment. A moment of awareness, heart attentiveness, that awakened my soul. Sometimes it is visual, others it is in the words I may have heard, or in the simplicity of a warm embrace I can recall. As a spiritual counselor, I have the privilege to spend moments with amazing souls that are faced with the pains of grief, loss and illness. I continue to... Read more

Place Gratitude In Your Soul’s Toolbox This past week I was met by a very unexpected and challenging event. Sitting quietly at a nearby restaurant, right from in back of me, my wallet was stolen. Having discovered this only two hours later due to many expenses that were not mine, a feeling of violation emerged. As the day went on, canceling credit card and reaching out to the DMV, I focused on what I could control and not what I... Read more

Giving Space to Regret Yom Kippur always offers me a new door in the house of my soul to look behind. As I listened to the voices of our tradition sing, and the wisdom of my Rabbi speak, my heart visited with the sounds of regret. An unexpected meeting in the rows of  Synagogue offered a sacred space to set regret free.   Morning Inspiration Her flowered dress was slightly covered by the white cardigan she wore. I sat in... Read more

Self Reflection I spent the morning walking in Tel Aviv amongst my favorite streets. The sun was warm, but the change of season was in the air. The holiday season, the one that follows the summer. Shanah Tova, Happy New Year, people greeted and parted from me. My answer with a full heart “Shanah Shel Tov”- May it be a year of good. I spend my days between Tel Aviv and NYC, holding on to the special and unique that... Read more
