Typical Conglomeration of Tabs

Some people had the honor of spending hours with the Rebbe in private audience. Yet thousands who merited a mere short moment felt transformed. The Rebbe sees everything, and those who found themselves at the receiving end of the Rebbe’s blessing or dollar changed not only their life but their entire perspective. The Avner Institute would like to present a wry and fascinating encounter Dr.Yaakov Brawer, Professor of Anatomy and Cell Biology at McGill University Faculty of Medicine, shared with the Rebbe in the winter of 1990. With special thanks to the TAV Seminary of Montreal, Canada.....

Rami Levy, owner of the Israeli discount supermarket chain that bears his name, has announced the chain will no longer stock items imported from Turkey. The decision is Levy's response to Turkish hostility toward Israel and the country's part in engineering the Gaza flotilla clash...

G-d did not give you light that you may hold it up in the middle of the day.

When you are given light it is in order to accomplish something, to do something difficult and novel.

Go take your light and transform the darkness that it may also shine!....

Be aware when interpreting the UV index and recommendations that:

  1. The intensity of UV radiation reaching the surface of the earth varies greatly depending on how high the angle of the sun is in the sky. The sun reaches its highest angle at solar noon, which rarely corresponds to 12:00 on clocks. This is because of the differences between solar time and local time in a given time zone.
  2. The recommendations given are for adults with pale to lightly tan skin. Children and particularly fair-skinned people or those who have sun sensitivity for medical reasons need to take extra precautions.
  3. Damage from sun exposure is cumulative over one's lifetime. Cumulative exposure to the sun imparts damage to the epidermis (the outer layer) and the dermis, (the deeper layer where the skin's framework exists). Damage to the dermal layer changes the structural components, causing Elastin fibers to thicken and become more numerous. Collagen is damaged and degraded and 'reticulin' fibers appear throughout the dermis rather than outlining the specific dermal-epidermal junction.....

"A poetic blend of scholarship and philosophy unprecedented and often breathtaking in its boldness, Open Secret negotiates the vast range of Lubavitcher literature by and about Menahem Mendel Schneerson, the Lubavitcher Rebbe. From an authoritatively learned but nonsectarian perspective, Open Secretreads the Rebbe's messianism seriously. Elliot R. Wolfson confronts the Rebbe as a major figure in the Jewish esoteric tradition. The Lubavitcher Rebbe's Messiah presents a challenge that is inescapable for anyone who seeks to understand a twenty-first-century globalized Judaism, and Wolfson compellingly engages that challenge."....

Free translation of the prayer composed and recited daily by Rabbi Eliyahu before entering the rabbinical courtroom: “Master of the Universe, it is revealed and known before You that it was not my idea to stand and serve Your holy nation, to judge and teach. I well know my small worth. I did not seek to do what is beyond me, but my rabbis instructed me to take this path, and this is how You arranged matters… Your wisdom has decreed that I serve the holy nation, teaching and judging… But trembling has overtaken me, fear and shaking have come over me, regarding the terrible danger that faces me and the vast abyss that is open before me

Chief Rabbi Yona Metzger: No Fast for Gush Katif

While not minimizing the tragic proportions of the expulsion, Rabbi Metzger gives several reasons why it should not be commemorated by an official day of fasting. For one thing, the rabbis are empowered to make new rulings such as national fast days only in cases where the public, or most of it, can be expected to observe them – which is not the case here.

In addition, he writes, “The subject of the uprooting from Gush Katif was a matter of sharp and painful public debate within the nation, such that a ruling of this sort as a day of mourning is liable to deepen and increase the split in the nation.”....

The perfume opens beautifully and smells like an early Los Angeles rooftop breakfast at the Peninsula: the scent of jasmine in fresh Pacific air plus the perfume of the guava mango fruit plate the waiter brings, with a bit of the swimming pool water and a hint of the exhaust from the Ferraris being valet-parked in front. The drydown is ever so slightly harsh. This isn’t necessarily a negative. It’s an effect nature uses in freesia, for example, and while in a perfume it can come from not giving the perfumer enough money for the best raw materials, let’s assume that here, it’s intentional. The slight coarseness makes it pure Versace. The white flowers and fresh green fade into a murmur after about 20 minutes. And there you have it.

Like the brand, the perfume should be taken with a pinch of irony. (The press material lists “Jasmine/Angel wing” as an ingredient. Why the hell are they killing angels and distilling their wings to make perfume? Doesn’t the EPA regulate this? Isn’t there some kind of celestial wildlife law?) But for those who love Versace — and the house has made an indelible mark on fashion — this is an extraordinarily faithful distillation of its essence....
