    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

Parsha Recovery of the Week

Shoftim

“You shall not accept a bribe, for the bribe will blind the eyes of the wise ” (Deuteronomy 16:19)

We are all judges, making many judgments every day. Every desire that one has is a bribe, affecting one’s judgment to favor the desired act.

A recovering alcoholic said, “In all my years of drinking, I never took a drink unless I decided it was the right thing to do at the time.”

Our capacity to rationalize is humongous. We are ingenious at justifying whatever it is we wish to do. The bribe of the desire renders us blind to the consequences of our act. We become the victims of our self-deception.
