    The disease of addiction is a relentless foe. It ruins lives, shatters families and crushes dreams. For years, the Jewish community was reluctant to admit that addiction even existed among Jews. The painful truth, though, is that Jews are as susceptible to addiction as anyone. Acknowledging the problem is the first step to finding a solution.Donate Now

JRC Wishes Everyone a Happy Rosh Hashanah!

rosh-hashanaMay you & your family be blessed with a Healthy, Happy, Sweet, &Prosperous New Year

On Rosh Hashanna we dip the sweet apple in the even sweeter honey, symbolizing our desire for a sweet new year. The apple, like most other fruits is a naturally sweet fruit. But honey is not only made from a non-kosher insect but from a bee that stings. And what’s more, it is the honey that tastes sweeter than the apple!

What is the message of the honey?

In life things come our way that are obviously good. Like the apple, they look good and they taste good. But throughout life we also have many tests, many difficulties, many struggles…and they sting! They do not feel good. But what we have to remember is that even the things that sting us, that don’t seem to be good are all for our very best and can push us to our greatest heights. And so on Rosh Hashana we daven that we should have the clarity to be able to look past the sting of the bee to see and to taste the sweetness of the honey.

Based on letters and talks of the Rebbe, Rabbi M. M. Schneerson

Rosh Hashanah is the beginning-not only of this new year, but of all years previous.

How could that be? Because on that day you are empowered to reach back into time and adjust the meaning of all that has passed.

True, He is the Author. But He has assigned us as editors. We adapt the storyline, transform the plot. By transforming who we are today, we rewrite our own past and author a whole new world.

Parsha Recovery of the Week

“You are standing here  today, before Hashem…the covenant which Hashem seal with you today…but with whoever is here today,  and with whoever is not here with us today” (Deuteronomy 29:1-14)

The repetition of “today” is unnecessary for the context of Moses’ message. It adds nothing to the meaning of the message. It can only be that Moses is stressing that fulfillment of the covenant with Hashem can be only if one focuses on just today, one day at a time.

True commitment to a Torah life is a formidable challenge. It is best approached by taking it one day at a time.
