A Modest and Healthy Self-Image

A modest person with a healthy self-image will be a happier person. He doesn't have demanding expectations of life. Therefore he has greater satisfaction and appreciation for what he does have and less distress from disappointments.

A person with a modest and healthy self-image will get along more harmoniously with others. He will be much more at ease and he will bring out the best in others. He will be respected and liked. He won't arouse needless envy and antagonism. He will speak and act pleasantly. In general, he will be more balance.

Work on giving yourself a good self image.

Regardless of how we've been treated by others – or how we've treated them; regardless of what we hold of others' views – or what they hold of ours; irrespective of the many other modes of repentance we must each engage in now, let us each take a few minutes to bless everyone we know in advance of the new year.

There is a  transformative effect the simple act of blessing one another has on our interpersonal relations, and on the entire universe. Our heartfelt blessings to each other have the power to elicit from G-d His deepest blessings to each of us individually, to all of us as one, and to the entirety of our universe. As Maimonides writes, one good deed has the potential to tip the balance of the entire world in the favor of merit and goodness!

Love Yehuda Lave with best wishes and blessings  for the upcoming Year.

Why I'm Not Going to Uman for Rosh Hashanah

Published: September 11th, 2015

Now an amazing piece of art
an amazing collection of Spanish "Hidden" Judaica. There are about twelve outstanding photos.
I thought you would find this interesting.
What a magnificent piece of art !!!
Found at Reddit, these are photos of a mind-bending piece of artwork. The contributor described it thusly:
"I got this from grandfather before he died.
First used by hidden Jews during the inquisition, it is shaped like a teapot, but contains many secret Judaica pieces.
The Hidden Synagogue."
The original photos are at Imgur .
The complete teapot
Remove the top…
Its' a hidden dreidel

Remove the next layer
A perfume/spice holder.
The Hebrew word on the bottom says áùîéí (basmim), "spices or perfumes"

The next layer is…
The eternal flame.
The Front View - The inscription reads, "The light of god is man's soul."
But there's another secret:
A complete megilla (the scroll containing the biblical narrative of the Book of Esther,
traditionally read in synagogues to celebrate the festival of Purim.)
The main body is designed to hold an etrog, the yellow citron or Citrus medica used by Jews on the week-long holiday of Sukkot.
The words say "pri etz hadar" (the fruit of the majestic tree), a biblical reference to the etrog.

Candlesticks for Shabbos
Close-up of candlesticks 
Remove the flowered tray, and under the candlesticks is… 
A Seder plate.
But there's one more thing.
A menorah.
With the shammash ("servant"), the 9th light of the menorah used to light the other 8 candles.
