Mayotte island and some beautiful pictures and 6th night Chanukah with fire and ice


 Clear Your Mind 

Before prayer clear things between you and your Creator by asking Him for forgiveness for the wrongs you have done. Then, your mind and soul will be ready for all the benefits of prayer to body and soul. In prayer you have an encounter with the Almighty: clear your mind and allow yourself to savor the experience.
Love Yehuda Lave
To be there in spirit is not the same as being there in battle.Many died to take this picture unfortunately.  Without these dedicated patriots Jews and Judaism would not be here today.That is why we must supplement the forces in Israel so that we are never subjected to a blood bath ever.That is why I do not believe that being in the hands of others will guarantee our safety.We live alone wherever we are.We fight alone wherever we are.For these reasons  only a united Jewry will protect our cultural and physical requirements.Do not let our young soldiers fight alone.Being here with us  is a mutual morale booster whatever your  age.So ,prick your consciences a bit deeper.Your heritage awaits you.you are welcome...come !

Polish Jews and Synagogues in slide show attached and fascinating pictures


 Making and Reaching Worthwhile Goals

Life is a process of setting and reaching goals. Formulating and achieving worthwhile goals add meaning to life.

Even if one's life is very challenging, having worthwhile goals raises the quality of life.

The happiest people are those who strive for worthwhile goals, not those whose life is just fun and games.

People with a positive self-image believe in their ability to attain meaningful goals.

Someone who has already accomplished worthwhile goals will have an even more positive self-image.

Part of successful goal making and reaching is an awareness of your life mission.

People who are clear about their life mission are clearer about their goals.

Developing a life mission that inspires and motivates you is one of the most important things that you can do in your life.

Today marks my one year Aliyah. It was a goal that I had for many years, but there were some detours on the way.

Thank you to all my new friends and the old ones who are still in my life. G-d gives to each of us the things we need to

  fulfill our life mission, but I can only pray my future life will be filled with love and joy and a minimum of pain.

Love Yehuda Lave

 The Return of the Violin
 
This takes about an hour and a half to watch.  Most interesting and unusual story.
The stories of the Israel  philharmonic, Huberman and his violin, this film explains the connections to Poland. 

It is a moving story, beautifully presented.

Enchanted River is found in Philippines . It is called "enchanted" because no one has ever reached its bottom. Many people,
including scuba divers, have tried reaching for the bottom but have failed, hence the legend of its bottomless pit. Moreover,
locals share that NOBODY has been successful in catching the fish in this river, whether by hand or by spear. They say its
bluish color is a result of its depth and the water clarity changes throughout the day. At around 12:00 pm, the water becomes
clearer and even more majestic.

Christ the Redeemer Statue overlooking the whole of Rio was pretty special. You could see it from everywhere you went.
I also have to say that the majority of the people who lived there, including the 'natives' (especially in the favelas) knew
exactly who it was and respected it and what it stands for.

The Astonishing Annual Red Crab Migration
Each year millions of bright red land crabs leave their burrow homes on Australia 's Christmas Island and start a long,
laborious trek toward the sea. They descend cliffs, climb banks and maneuver around obstacles to reach the shoreline
and lay their eggs, eventually returning to the island's central plateau with their offspring in tow. The synchronized migration
resembles a crimson-colored river undulating across the island and can last up to 18 days. The event typically takes place
in November or December (the crabs will only move when it's raining) and coincides with the turning of high tide and the
arrival of the waning moon.
