    Torah and Science: Best of Friends

    The Synthesis Runs a Lot Deeper Than You Think. Just Do it Right

    Lawless Leaders vs. Moral Mentors

    How Important Is Character to Being a Top Dog?

    A Well of Love

    Sustainable Love Is a Quiet Affair

    To be “in love” is to be generous, wide open, and full of dreams. That’s a great first step–but it’s only the first step. Abraham, the first Jew, was a man of kindness, yet the wells of emotion he dug were ultimately stuffed up. It took his quiet, disciplined son, Isaac, to redig them and open them forever.

    The Uniqueness of Israel and Our Special Right to It

    Debated in the halls of the UN and fought for with much spilled blood, Israel’s Jewish ownership is contested time and again. From the beginning of time itself, G-d designated this unique land to stand apart from any other, and gave it to His people. It’s time to take a better look.

    A Jerusalem Jew in Times Square

    You Want to Make an Impact? Be Real

    Are you a worldly Jew or a Jew in this world? What is your primary orientation? Jacob’s brash and forceful reply to his conniving uncle reveals that it wasn’t his business acumen that was so impressive; instead, it was his zealous commitment to his ideals. We can do the same.

    Lessons from Frederick the Great on How to Be the Best Version of Yourself

    Have you come up short in any personal battles lately? Jacob’s tactics against his ruthless brother Esau all the way down to a great Prussian military leader teach us a timeless tactic: don’t be a one-trick pony; focus all you’ve got on one front, and you’ll win the war.

    Expand Your Life Story. Also, Be Selective

    The Characters and Events Shape the Conclusion

    What keeps your air conditioner working, your orange juice pulp-free, and your coffee grounds out of your cup? A filter. Your life’s story needs one, too: you should embrace, expand, and engage with as much as possible, and when you do, make sure your filter is extra fine.

    Families gathered together in raucous joy to hear the story of the holiday. Sound familiar? Yes—for Purim, not Chanukah. You want to know why there’s no Chanukah Megillah? Because when you’re busy blazing up the darkness, there’s no time for stories.

    Living in “DeNile”

    The Perils of Overreliance on Self, and What to Think Instead

    Is the “self-made millionaire” the ultimate success story we should all look up to? Is everything really in our control, our dreams limited only by our capacity to carry them out? Not so fast.
