Van Gough brought to life

Rabbi Yehuda Lave

See the Other Side

When you need to influence people, see the entire situation from their viewpoint. You will then be able to present the matter in a way that will allow them to be happy about your proposal.

Many quarrels between family members and friends arise because one tries to influence the other in ways that create resentment. When you see the situation from the other person's point of view, you will have a greater awareness of what to say and what not to say.

is may just be the best version of Israel's national anthem you ever see…

On April 28, 1945, Life Begins Again. Hundreds of survivors from German concentration camps arrive to the harbor of Malmo, Sweden. Now, 70 years later, the survivors are watching this archive footage for the very first time and as they discover themselves, they re-experience the emotions from this special day.

Israel's 45 greatest inventions

Great inventions - great country, although small in size!
It shows that Israeli people don't let them get down by hate, but by love and care for God's creation and by letting God create through them to be a benefit to the entire world.
God bless Israel.


Why one rotton apple spoils the barrell

You start with a cage containing four monkeys, and inside the cage you
hang a banana on a string,
and then you place a set of stairs under the banana.

Before long a monkey will go to the stairs and climb toward the banana.

You then spray ALL the monkeys with cold water.

After a while, another monkey makes an attempt. As soon as he touches
the stairs, you spray
ALL the monkeys with cold water.

Pretty soon, when another monkey tries to climb the stairs, the other
monkeys will try to prevent it.

Now, put away the cold water. Remove one monkey from the cage and
replace it with a new monkey.

The new monkey sees the banana and attempts to climb the stairs.

To his shock, ALL of the other monkeys beat the crap out of him. After
another attempt and attack,
he knows that if he tries to climb the stairs he will be assaulted.

Next, remove another of the original four monkeys, replacing it with a
new monkey.

The newcomer goes to the stairs and is attacked.

The previous newcomer takes part in the punishment – with enthusiasm —
because he is now part
of the "team."

Then, replace a third original monkey with a new monkey, followed by
the fourth. Every time the
newest monkey takes to the stairs, he is attacked.

Now, the monkeys that are beating him up have no idea why they were
not permitted to climb the stairs.
Neither do they know why they are participating in the beating of the
newest monkey.

Having replaced all of the original monkeys, none of the remaining
monkeys will have ever been sprayed
with cold water. Nevertheless, not one of the monkeys will try to
climb the stairway for the banana.

Why, you ask?

Because in their minds, that is the way it has always been!

This is how today's House and Senate operates, and this is why, from
time to time, ALL of the
monkeys need to be REPLACED AT THE SAME TIME!
