The proof is all over the news. If I said it once, I'll say it again: We have the power to change everything.

A Light of Hope in Mexico

Posted February 16, 2011 | 12:51:33 (EST)

Twenty men "disappeared" in Mexico. Thirty-three people killed in a single weekend. Fifteen heads laid out on the street by a store front. One hundred and thirty-four tons of confiscated weed burned by officials.

Posted January 4, 2011 | 18:07:10 (EST)

I enjoyed reading "The Jewish View of Creationism" by Rabbi Adam Jacobs on Huffington Post. Coincidentally, we at Kabbalah Publishing are re-editing one of the Rav's previous works in which he discusses time and space from the perspective of Science and the Bible. (The title is Navigating the...

The Power of Words

Posted September 14, 2010 | 14:45:29 (EST)

Our Founding Fathers were genius with words.

"When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws...

We All Have Oil on Our Hands

Posted June 21, 2010 | 21:40:56 (EST)

At first I resisted commenting on the oil spill in the Gulf. What more could I add to what has already been said. But then I realized that as disturbing as it is, this disaster provides us with an opportunity for something good, perhaps even a turning point that invokes...

Change Looks Like Health Care

Posted March 25, 2010 | 13:49:00 (EST)

As usual, people are divided about whether or not the new health care bill is a good thing or a bad thing for this country. Even President Obama himself stated in his address to the nation, "...So this isn't radical reform. But it is major reform. This legislation will not...

Posted February 1, 2010 | 10:43:00 (EST)

In the State of the Union, Obama invoked Kennedy and Regan in the same sentence in reference to their vision of a world without nuclear weapons. This got me thinking about what other things both parties have in common.

Focus in Front

Posted December 28, 2009 | 13:25:57 (EST)

I'm often asked the question: when is enough, enough?

Spirituality: Do You Know Where You Are Going?

Posted December 18, 2009 | 11:57:01 (EST)
