Learn to Love Life.

We live in a world of endless contradictions. Work vs. family. Money vs. fulfillment. Desires vs. obligations. The body vs. the spirit. We rely on conventional wisdom to point us forward. But conventional wisdom gets it wrong more often than we imagine.

Open this book and celebrate the marriage between the greatest collection of verbal images in history — King Solomon’s Book of Proverbs — and the most famous visual image in the world — Leonardo Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa.

Find tranquility in the midst of conflict

Develop attitudes that deepen relationships

Gain clarity through times of darkness and confusion

Decrease cynicism and find joy in the daily miracles that fill our lives

Secrets for success and happiness from the wisdom of the ages

Take a guided tour beneath the surface of the world we live in through the lens of news stories, historical vignettes, folktales, the wonders of nature, and the discoveries of science — all woven together in a lyrical and surprising medley of the human experience.

Researchers have no explanation why people, when blindfolded, can’t walk a straight line; but what is it about human nature that makes us wander in circles?  What does former NYC Mayor Bloomberg’s plan to ease Manhattan traffic with “congestion pricing” reveal about the way we make decisions?  What can fig harvesting, migraine headaches, and two Miss America titleholders teach us about the underpinnings of emotional well-being?

The answers to 3000 years’ of questions are here, revealed for every seeker of truth and self-awareness in the language of our modern era.  Guided by the wisdom of Solomon and the mysteries of the Mona Lisa, learn how to find tranquility in the midst of chaos, how to savor the moments of everyday life, and how to resolve the paradoxes of the human heart.

    Is Zionism ( Jewish State Focus) the same as Judaism ( The Faith of Landless Possessing Father Abrahan)?

  2. In the traditional sense, Zionism means commitment to the ideal of the Jews returning to the Land of Israel to live in peace with the Temple rebuilt, a Torah-based government, and the dynasty of David restored to the monarchy. In the modern sense, religious Zionism focuses on the Jewish state as part of the process that will lead to the aforementioned ideal, while secular Zionism is essentially Israeli nationalism. Judaism is the way of life guided by the laws, traditions, and values of God’s Torah, wherever the Jew may live.

      Is the state of Israel a bastion of Judaism? Elokim allowed the blotting out of the Northern Kingdom because of the ten tribes descent into idolatry. Judah and Benjamin were to exist for David’s sake. Furthermore many scattered for filthy lucre reasons. Therefore, in my opinion, only the true righteous remnant of Hebrews descending from the tribes of Benjamin and Judah should be allocated any land in Palistine. How speaks the Talmud?

      • During the reign of Hezekiah of Judah, before the exile of the Northern Kingdom, a small number from the ten tribes came to celebrate Passover in the Temple for the first time since the schism between the kingdoms. Some of these remained, so that all the 12 tribes are represented, although the majority are from Judah, Benjamin, and Levy. Modern day Israel is for the most part a secular state, although the demographics are shifting.

    I believe the suffering servant ( Isaiah 42:1-8) is the standard for a distinctive people that a chosen blessed people are to live out.

    I call upon all people to live this way in submission to the will and way of our creator so that those whose way has been darkened by the counter influences of the flesh, the culture and Satan might desire to live distinctively.

    An acculturated people not reliant on the Creator but [on] America … are not distinctive in my opinion nor do they embody the principles of the suffering servant.

    Joyous Chanukah!
