Experiencing the Holidays
Rabbi Benji shares his thoughts, tips, lessons, and inspiration to guide you into a meaningful holiday experience.
Getting into the Rosh Hashana Mindset
Isn’t it strange to wish people a happy ‘head of the year’ rather than a happy ‘new year’? But that’s exactly what Rosh Hashana means! Why? Here’s a short thought that can help get us into the headspace on the cusp of next year, especially in these challenging times, with the beautiful rendition of a familiar tune by the maestro Mendy Portnoy. Shana Tova!

The news cycle has been consumed with divisive election campaigns for the better part of a year but the truth is, there is so much more that unites us than divides us. On September 25th, 2019 (election day), I asked Israelis from across the political spectrum what they like most about Rosh Hashanah. Here's what they said.

Shavuot - Timeless Tradition
Shavout literally transformed the world. And it continues to transform our world every single day. The miracle of sharing our timeless tradition is something we juxtapose with our youngest children, by playing the game of broken telephone. I invite you to watch this short clip featuring some of our own primary school students, connecting to that original revelation and appreciating its relevance in our daily lives.
