The Good News of Elul

What exactly is Elul and why should Christians care? In the Hebrew calendar, Elul is the name of the month that comes before the fall feasts. It is the time leading up to Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur and Sukkot.  Traditionally, it is remembered as the time God gave Moses the second set of tablets and […]

Did Jesus Rescue Us from God?

What many non-Jewish Christians don’t get is that God is the same yesterday, today and forever. Oh, we say we get it, we say we believe it, but do we really?  When it comes to a discussion of Torah, our words often reveal something entirely different – and we don’t even realize it. Because we […]

Fasting God’s Way

This is the month of Elul.  It is a time of preparation for the holy days that are coming.  It is a time to fast and pray.  That got me thinking about a lesson God gave me a few years back on fasting.   One day I was praying about jobs and income for my […]

One of the Tribe?

This past week I conducted the most unusual interview ever.  I am a district supervisor with a merchandising company, and a very nice lady – who I’ll call Jay – applied for a position.  One thing we have to do at these interviews is see the applicant’s ID.  Well, it was her ID that caused […]

Accidentally On Purpose

I once read Frank Peretti’s book ‘Piercing the Darkness’. In it he had God’s angels cause a believer to be in a traffic accident.  I remember thinking, “God wouldn’t do that, would He?” A few weeks ago I was on my way to Temple Aron HaKodesh.  I take the same route every week.  But this […]

Simple Meal or Magnificent Feast

I heard someone refer to the communion as a simple meal.  Instantly I had two reactions. First I thought, “Tell that to all us ladies who spend days preparing the meal”; and second, my heart broke because so many just don’t understand what the cup and ‘cracker’ represent.   For the last several years I have […]

Breaking the Rules

When you see a child pulling a tantrum in a store, is your first thought, “Oh his parents did such a great job” or do you think, “Somebody ought to teach that kid a lesson”? When children break the rules, they bring dishonor to their parents.  In fact, when any of us break the rules, […]

Rules of the Road

Do you follow the all rules of the road when driving?  If so, do you follow them all the time? or only when a police officer is around? Can I be honest?  I don’t.  I know I should, but as the ride progresses, my speed increases; when there is no one on the road I […]

Rules of Order

Did you ever stop to think about why God gave the Torah to the Israelites? Or contemplate when He gave it?  I don’t mean when, as to a date, but in what circumstances? I’ve often heard it said, “The law was given so we can know how sinful we are.” Thinking about the ‘when’ of […]
