It’s Not What You Think Machla AbramovitzToday’s popular large group therapy seminars claim to help us heal from our egocentric thoughts and entrenched defenses that skew the way we relate to the people and situations around us.

Guest Tribute: Every Moment of Truth
Mishpacha Staff | Tuesday, January 20, 2015
Rav Hillel Zaks, the Chofetz Chaim’s grandson, was a gaon in both the revealed and concealed Torah, but he relentlessly devoted his life to helping his talmidim figure things out for themselves. For the many devastated disciples who considered him their “Abba” as he kept them focused on the path of emes, his passing last week on 22 Teves was the loss of Radin again.

He completed the Technion when he was still a teenager, but put his PhD on hold so he could finish his semichah. Just 32 years old, Dr. Nathan Keller is a

Then, she’d be off, again, accompanying my father to the many social evenings required by his business. Old Mrs. Cooper would stay with me, but although she dozed off on the couch downstairs, I was never able to sleep. I would lie in bed and read The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, or whatever wonderland I was immersed in. And I would wait.

Avigail Sharer Tuesday, January 20, 2015
Interestingly, this constellation is one of two that are slightly different in the secular world. The Jews see Aquarius, Dli, as a bucket for transporting water. The non-Jews see it as a water pourer, someone who pours out water.
Buckets of Joy

“It’s time to call it a night,” Siman Mazel said. His face broke into a giant smile as he shuffled some papers into a pile and placed them in an envelope marked “Superstore Specials.”
“This month is going to be wonderful!” he said. “And this time we don’t have any hearing aids to worry about.”
