Haifa,Israel--secular life--looks like every place not in Israel and Tikun Olum

  The Concept of Tikun Olum

There is a spiritual concept of "tikun" that gives us a perspective conducive   for serenity. Kabbalistically the term "tikun" means "rectification." Difficult and distressful life situations serve as a rectification for one's soul.
A person accepts, and is even grateful for, medical treatment that heals and cures even though it can be painful. So, too, knowing that the challenges one faces serve as a benefit for one's eternal soul, makes it easier to maintain serenity when facing difficulties.

21st Century  Synagogue

MONDAY MORNING IN SHUL: "Will everyone please turn on their tablet, PC, iPad, smart phone, and Kindles to Art Scroll page 232. And please switch on your Bluetooth to download the sermon."
"Now, let us daven. Open your Apps, BBM, Twitter and Facebook, and chat with God"
S-i-l-e-n-c-e .......
"As we accept your kind tzedakah donations, please have your credit and debit cards ready."
"You can log on to the Shul Wi-Fi using the password 'Hashem18.' The Shammes will circulate mobile card swipe machines among the congregants:
Those who prefer to make electronic fund transfers are directed to computers and laptops at the rear of the Shul.
Those who prefer to use iPads can open them.
Those who prefer telephone banking, take out your cell phones to transfer your contributions to the Shul account."
This week's shiur will be held on the various Facebook group pages where the usual group chatting takes place. Please log in and don't miss out.
Thursday's Talmud Torah study will be held live on Skype at 1900hrs GMT. Please don't miss out.
You can follow the Rabbi on Twitter this weekend for counseling and prayers.

Unfortunately in a reform synagogue it is like that on Saturday as well.

    Haifa,Israel--ראו את חיפה

This is a tourist video so be warned there are pictures of girls at the beach as well as tourists. The government wants to show everyone having a good time. If you substitute the wailing wall for the beach and put hassidic garb on everyone you would have Jerusalem instead of Haifa, as there is a lot in common as it is still Israel.
