PRAYERS TO FIND A SOULMATE

Prayer 1

Prayer 2

The Power Of Unity

Rivki D. Rosenwald Esq., CLC, SDS 

I'm sure no one believes there is room in one body for more than one mind, or room for more than one heart. And I'm equally sure that most people believe that every body needs its own mind and own heart.  But right now, I believe, we are all one body with one heart and mind. Because Israel's fate is all our fates! We are only safe, wherever we are, if we know we always have a place to go home. 

Home is that place we are accepted for who we are. Home is that place all our strengths are appreciated and our shortcomings are overlooked. Home is that place that welcomes us with open arms. Home is the place we belong and no one tells us we don't! 

Our home is not a large one. It is a blip on a radar screen. It is surrounded by hostile neighbors who would love to post an evictions sign on our front door. Even though we would gladly mind our own business, if we just were left alone to enjoy and thrive in our tiny little inheritance. 

Though some of us are spread out far from home, our life line comes from the existence of our homeland.  The last time we didn't have it innumerable family members were decimated and obliterated.   

Our bodies, hearts, and minds understand we must survive. Some have differences, on how to accomplish that, but all know we need to have a place that will embrace us, no matter what. 

Don't waste your precious mind, don't neglect your needy body, don't ignore your throbbing heart - put your prayers, your energies, your commitment, toward your home. Even when you’re living in your home away from home!

A Lesson in Self Esteem 
by  

Teaching our kids who they really are and what makes them special.

 
Dear Slovie,

My 12 year old, Zack, is in 7th grade. At his middle school there is a clique of 'popular' kids who have begun having Bar/Bat Mitzvah parties. My son, though he is kind, funny, intelligent and warm, has always had a hard time making many friends because of his shyness in social situations. It's hard for him to be social and he's not invited to most of these Bar/Bat Mitzvah parties. Most of the kids hand out sweatshirts as favors at their parties. The Monday after their Saturday night party, all of the kids who were at the party come to school wearing the sweatshirt. My son comes home many Monday's feeling sad.

Last Saturday night, my son attended a party of a boy whose father does business with my husband. (Which is why he was invited since this boy doesn't really talk to my son).When Monday morning came my husband and I told Zack he was not allowed to wear the sweatshirt to school because I remembered the lessons you taught us about teaching our children compassion. We told him that just as his feelings were hurt on so many Mondays, other children will be hurting now. And it's also like bragging that you went to a popular boy's Bar Mitzvah. He listened but wasn't happy. When he came home he said that all the kids who were wearing their sweatshirts made the others feel bad anyway so why couldn't he wear his? I told him that regardless of what others did he knew he didn't cause others pain.

I feel like it was a character–building experience that he will one day understand. Please let me know if I did the right thing.

Amy

I read the email and had to pause for a moment. I was incredibly moved by this mother's courageous determination to teach her child a lesson in compassion. After all, wouldn't most parents want their children to finally 'fit in' and wear the 'right shirt'? But the truth is, this mother not only taught her child to open his heart, she also gave him the gift of self esteem.

Later that night, Amy and I spoke.

"The first thing I want you to do," I began, "is to sit down with your son and have a conversation. Tell him how proud you are of the way he respected your decision, even though it was difficult for him to carry through. Too often we criticize our children but neglect to tell them how proud we are of them.

"Next, I would like you to explain to Zack that when he feels hurt by other's in life, he should always try to remember that feeling so that he never inflicts pain on anyone else. It would be so much easier, of course, to just forget about the other kids who are feeling sad and leave them behind. But then what? You are acting the same way as those who hurt you. The point of going through something is not to grow insensitive, but, rather, to grow from the experience and become a kinder, more compassionate human being. That way, you know in your heart of hearts that you have taken the higher road, and that is the greatest road to take in life."

"That is exactly the lesson I wanted Zack to walk away with," Amy said.

"But here is the greatest lesson of all," I added. "Think about this and ask Zack this question. If these kids are being nice to him and including him only when he wears the 'in' sweatshirt, what kind of friends are these? What happens next week, when he's back Monday morning without the right sweatshirt on? Are they back to not including him because he wasn't at the big weekend party? If someone is your friend only for the label on your shirt, is that called a true friend? And then, if you lose the label, do you lose your friends? Do you lose your sense of self? Are you only as good as the sweatshirt on your back? Ask yourself, without this shirt, who am I?"

"I never thought of it like that," Amy mused.

Angels on Earth

"Listen, Amy, I want to tell you a story, and I want you to relay this story to Zack. When my children were little we would often stay at my parent's home for Shabbos. My siblings would join us with all their little ones and though space was tight, incredible love and laughter filled the house. Friday night, after finishing the meal, all the cousins would gather together and ask my mother to tell them a story. 'Bubba, can you tell us about when you were a little girl?' they would say.

"No matter how exhausted she was, my mother would settle down with her sweet grandchildren around her, waiting to hear their Bubba's tales.

"One of my children's most requested stories was my mother's description of Shabbos in Bergen-Belsen. Each week, my Zaydah, my grandfather, would set aside his meager portion of stale bread. When Friday night would arrive, Zaydah would gather his children close, together with Mama, my grandmother.

"'Close your eyes, kinderlach', Zaydah would whisper. 'Imagine that you are home and the Shabbos candles are lit. The flames are dancing and Mama's challah is warm. The house is filled with light.' Zaydah would take out his hidden crumbs and share them with us.

"Zaydah then began to hum 'Shalom Aleichem', the prayer we say to welcome the angels into our home. For those few minutes we were back home, away from all the darkness. One week, my little brother called out, 'Tatty, you are welcoming angels but I don't see any angels here!' Zaydah began to cry. He looked at us and said, 'You, my most precious children, you are the angels.'

"'And you know what, my children?' my mother asked. 'Each morning I had to stand at roll call in the freezing cold. I was dressed in rags, my head shaved, covered in lice. I was starving. I looked at those Nazi guards standing across from me in their shiny boots and fancy uniforms, all neat and perfect. But to me they had nothing and I had everything. I would never in a million years want to be one of them. I would rather be barefoot and freezing but still be me, the daughter of Zaydah and Mama, an angel here on earth.'"

"Amy," I said, "Here is your opportunity to teach Zack an incredible lesson for life. It's not your sweatshirt, your iPod, your sneakers or your car that defines you. It is your heart, your soul, your deeds, and how you impact others in this world that tells you who you are. Especially now, when we are all feeling the 'economic crunch', and we are unable to give our children so many of the things we've taken for granted, we need to give our kids a true sense of what really counts in life. Really, who are you and what makes you special?"

"I can't wait to speak to Zack," Amy said. "There is so much I want to share with him. You're right, we have been feeling stressed from all the financial pressures right now…and I know that if I give Zack an understanding of who he is I'll be giving him one of the greatest gifts a parent can give a child."

Recently, I received an email from Amy:

Dear Slovie,

I just dropped Zack off at school. It's Monday! As he was getting out of the car, Zack turned to me and said, Look Mom, there are all those kids in those silly sweatshirts; and then he laughed. And I laughed too. Thank you for helping me teach my son one of the greatest lessons of his life.

Amy

It is up to us, parents, to ask ourselves: Who am I? What defines me? And how do my children define themselves? If we are able to discover our sense of self beyond the cars that we drive and the labels on our backs, we will then be able to impart to our children a greater understanding of 'self'. They will be fortified to climb the many mountains that life's challenges bring. And that is 'true' self esteem.

 

Help Me I’m Falling And I Can’t Get Up!

Rivki D. Rosenwald Esq., CLC, SDS 

Does anyone like falling? At any age? The scraped knees, the bruised hips, the broken bones. Why would anyone want to fall at any stage?

Then why do people want to fall in love? Falling usually leaves you in a state of pain or at the very best it doesn’t harm you. But a positive outcome from a fall? Never seen it.

That’s the problem. It’s a misnomer. You are set up to fail right from the start. You are freefalling and there is nothing to stop you from hitting the ground.

Love needs to be an action not the destination you plunge to. Especially, because even with a soft landing, you can fall out of something you fell into just as haphazardly.  For instance -Last night I was exhausted I fell into bed. This morning I was rested, I fell right back out-just 8 hours later!

Love needs to be a verb not a noun. Love needs to be an action you can control not an inanimate object like a place you land when you’re thrown off kilter.

If love is good -we want to have some control in keeping it around. An “Object” is usually limited an “action” is usually infinite- as long as you can keep doing it.

So how can we keep love going?

Easy- keep loving!! The End!!!

Aha, there’s the rub. How do we keep the action of love going? First let’s get an operational definition of the word - LOVE.

There are 2 important elements:

Maimonides says love is seeing and focusing on the virtues in another person. Oh sure - Easy enough when you first meet someone and are excited about them! But with a little bit of familiarity comes the unfortunate reality that people have a “tad bit” of imperfection, as well.

So what’s a person to do when they start seeing those imperfections?

Well – to keep loving someone, you need to keep focusing on their strengths. I’m not saying you absolutely cannot; notice, mention, work on, discuss, figure out, etc. how to accept their “tiny imperfections”. I’m just saying you need to keep those “Wonderful virtues”, strengths, positive qualities, gifts they have, front and center. This is one very important secret to loving!!!!  Get it- it takes an action- to keep putting those virtues back into the front and center when they get pushed aside. That will definitely keep you actively loving!!

The other element of loving, is one a new born figures out immediately upon passing through the birth canal. Imagine that- and I need to tell it to a literate, educated adult like yourself!    To keep someone loving you- you need to incline them to keep GIVING to you. Every kid makes it so easy for their parents. They demand and demand and d..e..m..an..d and the parent gives and gives and- voila, as drained and depleted  as they are, the parent, has totally become a loving machine.

Why is this so hard to do with a peer or a mate?  Well, since you don’t meet a peer  in as  helpless a state ,one figures  they don’t need to do as much for them : After all , They can feed themselves. They are thankfully, toilet trained. They can even get themselves, everywhere they need to go. They seem completely independent.   There’s where the trouble exists.  Expectations!!   A kid is expected to be dependent and demanding. A peer is not.

But the trick is to take your cue from a drooling, crying, babbling, baby. That baby knows how to make a lover out of someone- just let them give. So, if you want to be a lover, you must give to someone else! They may not need a bottle or pacy or a push in a stroller but they do need: help, support, thoughtfulness, gifts, attention, affection, appreciation.

Remember  you don’t want to be the person going to a party alone, called-  “stag”  rather you want to have someone  with you ,  and the  best way to get that is-  “stgag” (  see the good and give). So stop reading this and take action. Go love someone. It might take a little more active effort but it’s definitely a lot less painful than taking a flop.

BLESSINGS ON MY JEWISH BIRTHDAY

By: Suri Stern

DEAR FRIENDS:
TODAY IS MY JEWISH BIRTHDAY. AN OPPORTUNITY TO BLESS YOU ALL AND THESE ARE MY THOUGHTS:
1. First and foremost all those who are ill should have a speedy recovery, especially Zev yehuday ben faigel and aryeh ben chaya sarah.
2. God should grant us everything we want, but only for the good.
3. God should grant us the wisdom to see all the blessings around us, especially those we take for granted, inlcuding nature.
4. It was exactly a year ago that I landed in the hospital with my back injury, and believe me when I tell you that being able to get out of bed and walk should not be taken for granted. This is the Hebrew month of Iyar which is an acronym for Ani Hashem Rofechah/I am God your healer.
5. We should all have whatever kind of healing we need.
6. God should grant us and our partners and children with the ability to have an easy income, and one that we enjoy and the wisdom to know that every client that calls and walks through the door is a blessing, espcially in this economy.
7. There are many who are in pain. If that is what is meant to be, then God should give us the ability and wisdom to turn these pains into moments of growth or growing pains. If we are given a heavy boulder, let's turn it into a stepping stone.
8. Today in the omer it is the day of Bonding in Bonding. Lets take a moment to recognize that God gave us a divine soul that is nurturing and loving and we must learnt to recognize the voice within, which will allow us to experience other peoples hearts and souls.
Do me the honor on this birthday of taking out one minute to say a chapter in Psalms and put a few cents in the charity box.

I am turning 49 today.  It is the number of gates of impurity the Jews were in before they were redeemed from Egypt.  It is also the number of days between Passover and Shavuoth, the day the Torah was given to us.  We need each day to pull us out of each gate of impurity.  In the 49th year, we prepare to go from the decade of binah/wisdom to the decade of counsel/eitzah.  Fifty was the age at which the Levites were no longer considered for for heavy work, but continued to act as guides and counselors to the younger Levites.  At this age one can draw on her life experience and intellect to advise others. 

Those who are looking for a spouse should find the right person at the right time.  There should be shalom bayis/harmony in the family.  Those who are looking to have children should conceive easily, have an easy pregnancy and labor and yiddisher nachat from their children.

Finally, as always, may God speed us the Messiah immediately.  More than anything, which includes everything, we need redemption.

Always yours,

Suri

 

Kids and Stress 
by  

Stressful times produce stressful kids. How can we empower our children as we empower ourselves?

 
The kids are not all right.

Last week I met Emily, a sweet 11-year-old who came to speak with me in anticipation of her Bat Mitzvah. After talking together for a few minutes, Emily’s sparkling eyes grew serious. “Slovie, can I tell you something?”

“Sure, sweetie, what is it?”

“I’m really scared. There are people that I know who are sick and I’m afraid that someone I love will get sick or get into a car accident or something. And some kids in my class, well, their parents lost their jobs and they have to sell their house and move now. They’re really sad. I stay up at night thinking about all this and I get a scary feeling inside.”

We live in challenging times. Our world is changing drastically and there are moments when we all feel vulnerable. We stress about our jobs, our families, our future, and our children feel our strain.

Children sense their parents' pressures. They feel worried, sad and frustrated. Nearly one third of children interviewed in a new American Psychological Association study said that they had stress related headaches and stomachaches. 91% of kids said they know when their parents are stressed because they see them arguing and complaining or because their parents won’t spend time with them.

Sue Shellenbarger writes in the Wall Street Journal’s work and family column that “A new generation gap is emerging between American parents and their kids.” She concludes that this gap isn’t about chores around the house or nighttime curfews; rather it’s all about our stress and how it affects our children.

Anxiety is catchy. It becomes easy for children to feel our tensions and grow tense themselves.

In such challenging times, it is almost impossible for us to live stress-free lives.

Life is filled with struggles. There are times that we must confront frightening health issues, relationship problems, tension with children, or financial challenges. Some parents try to guard their children from the storm but kids know that something is going on. They see past the masquerade of frozen smiles and overly cheerful voices. They grow even more frightened as they imagine the worst and try to overhear hushed conversations.

While we do not have to give our children inappropriate details, we must acknowledge our children’s fears.

Storms will rage. One day our children will be forced to face their own struggles. If we could teach our children how to handle stress without falling apart, we impart tools for life.

How can we empower our children as we empower ourselves?

Don’t Allow ‘Trickle Down Stress’

Our children know that we are stressed even if we think they don’t. The mood in the house is tense; you sense it the minute you walk in. When we are overwhelmed it becomes easy to snap. Our patience is short.

“Mommy, can you help me with homework?”

“Daddy, can you play a game of catch with me?”

“LATER! I’M BUSY!”

You didn’t mean to answer with that harsh tone. You feel awful when you see your child’s face react to your sharp response. But what could you do? You are overloaded, short on time and patience.

Take a breath. Concede to yourself that you are going through challenging times. Be sure to take some quiet time out for yourself each day even if it’s just for a short walk or thoughtful prayer.

Resolve that you will not allow your stress to impact your children’s nature. Your temper will only destroy your children as you diminish yourself.

Your children are seeking answers. Reassure them that despite the hardships faced, your love is unconditional and forever. You are here for them. Tell them that you are doing your best and ultimately, things will be okay.

Carve Out Time with Your Kids

Spending time with children shows them that we love them. We do not need to take them on exotic vacations or thrilling day trips to express our emotions. Reading or baking together, sharing an ice cream, going for a bike ride, playing a game, sitting at the table for dinner as a family – all these little actions reassure our children that we are here for them and enjoy their company.

Don’t lose your sense of humor. Laugh out loud.

Good times together build memories of joy instead of painful recollections of a childhood filled with negative vibes and tension.

Model An ‘Up’ Attitude

Your children hear your words, observe your actions, and watch your reactions. If you do not allow challenges to get you down, your kids will pick up on your positive attitude. They will learn the power of resilience; the strength that we infuse in our homes when we resist the pull of pessimism. It is easy for worry to turn into hopelessness and in the process we lose our faith.

Sure, this is easier said than done. But as we empower our children, we empower ourselves. And think of what is at stake.

Raising a child when all is well is simple compared to bringing a child up while faced with difficult challenges. This may be the greatest battle of our lives.

I was driving a carpool when a child in the back seat piped up with a request.

“Mrs. Wolff, can you please turn onto the news station? You know, the one that has all the news all the time”

“No problem, but why would you want that station?” I asked.

“I want to know how the stock market did today,” was the reply. “I need to know what mood my father’s in before I get home. If it’s down, I can’t talk to him.”

This true story says it all. Let us ask ourselves: what is the aura in our home? Are we pushing our children away as we try to shoulder our burdens?

When faced with darkness we can either fall into despair or kindle a light. Our choice molds the next generation.
