Disconnect and Connect

Maybe you think you're having trouble losing weight because you eat too much, you snack too much or you don't get enough exercise. Surprisingly enough, overeating, unhealthy eating and lack of exercise are not always the culprits that prevent a person from losing excess weight. Have you ever heard about cortisol? That's the stress hormone, public enemy #1 to body and soul. Here's how to get rid of it.

Amalek and the Geek

For 17-year-old Albert, a scroll is not some ancient holy book but a trip up and down a screen. He thinks Mom and Dad are really out of it and that Grandma and Grandpa should be exhibits in some museum (unless they knock on his bedroom door with cash in their hands). Today's podcast is all about the generation gap and how to bridge it.

The Two Most Important Words

We're about to learn the two most important words in life - "thank you."

Today's podcast talks about gratitude on several of life's most significant levels: child-rearing, business and interpersonal relationships and marital relationships, among others. We also take a look at the two sides of gratitude - between man and fellow human, and between man and Hashem.

The Emuna Babies

Today's podcast was difficult and a very emotional one to record. Our own personal story that you'll hear here has a happy ending, but many similar ones don't. How many healthy and beautiful children are killed each year because of mistaken diagnoses and recommendations - even orders - to expecting parents to abort? If today's message saves even one life, it's worth everything. Listen to this and pass it on, for by doing so, you can be our partner in saving lives, for this is no greater mitzva:

Save the Children

Today's podcast is all about the nasty "A" word – abortion. What we say here is very politically incorrect with the contemporary liberal norms that turn what the Torah calls abominations into ideology, but I don't care because I'm not running for office and am not trying to garner votes. Hopefully, though, today's podcast will save lives; even if it saves one unborn child, it's more than worth it.

The Gemara in tractate Sanhedrin, page 37a says that anyone who causes the loss of one life is equivalent to someone who has destroyed an entire world. And conversely, anyone who saves one life is equivalent to someone who has saved an entire world...

You too can help save lives - download this podcast - it doesn't cost you a cent - and spread it far and wide. If you need urgent help in a crisis related to contemplating abortion, contact the wonderful people at Efrat.

Never Enough Love

Today's podcast has a double message, one for parents and one for children, including young adults and married children. Love is not about things, but about togetherness. In parenting, there is never enough love. A child doesn't become spoiled from an excess of love, but from a sense of entitlement, when he or she thinks that they are entitled to whatever they want. We learn what good parenting really is from our Father in Heaven...
