Grand Reopening of German Synagogue and Build Yourself and Jerusalem Wanderings

My Third Video from Jerusalem --Please enjoy
Build Yourself

We all start off as young children who need our characters to be molded.

 We all have our natural areas of strengths and areas that need fixing.

 Anyone who lets his character traits go on automatic pilot will have many character failings.

 To have faults is the normal human condition. That is why we were put on this earth: to develop and grow.

 Allow yourself to feel joy with every action you take to develop your character

 When you notice that you have a fault, be glad that you recognized it.

Whether you find it yourself or whether someone else points it out to you, you can feel a sense of appreciation that you are aware, for now you can correct it.

Love Yehuda

Something to make your heart sing:
Germany  's biggest synagogue, on Rykestrasse in
Berlin, has reopened after a lavish restoration.    

The synagogue was set ablaze on Kristallnacht, or the Night of
Broken Glass, in 1938.
Friday's inauguration saw rabbis bringing the Torah to the synagogue,
in a ceremony witnessed by political leaders and Holocaust survivors from around the world

The synagogue, with a 1,200-person capacity, has been described
as one of the jewels ofGermany's Jewish community.

Rabbi Chaim Roswaski, who presided at the ceremony, described the
reconstruction as 'a miracle.'

Restoration of the neo-classical building,
which is more than 100 years old,cost
more than 45m euros ($60m, 30m).

The re-opening comes at the start of
a Jewish culture Festival in the capital.
Did you ever think you would see this
in your lifetime?



Simply too good not to share with others.
