Praise G-d!
Fortunate is the man who fears G-d;
His commandments he greatly desires.

Mighty upon the earth will be his seed,
a generation of the upright who will be blessed.

Wealth and riches are in his house
and his righteousness endures forever.

He causes to shine in the darkness
a light for the upright (for He is)
gracious, compassionate and righteous.

Good is the man who is gracious and lends,
who conducts his affairs with justice.

For he will never be moved
as an everlasting remembrance
will the righteous remain.

He will not fear evil tidings
steadfast is his heart, trusting in G-d.

His heart is steadfast, he will not fear,
even before he sees his adversaries (downfall).

(Widely distributed charity)
he dispersed to the needy;
his righteousness endures forever.
his horn will be exalted with honor.

The wicked will it and be angered,
he will gnash his teeth and melt away;
the desire of the wicked will perish.

G-d bless!

Lag B'Omer

Today on Lag B'Omer, we celebrate Shimon Bar Yochai. As the principle student of Rabbi Akiva, Bar Yochai fearlessly brought to the world the Zohar, the main work on Kabbalah.
He lived during a time when the Romans persecuted Jews.
Thank you, Bar Yochai for your strength and your contribution.
Your holy fire burns until even today....

G-d bless!!!

Natural Soaps

"The safest way to ensure that you're not being exposed to potentially hazardous substances is to make your own personal care products, using inexpensive all-natural ingredients that you may already have in your home."

-Dr. Mercola

It's something to think about.
If they did back in the day, surely we can do it as well...

I've been searching for alternatives to detergents and fell across this video on soap nuts. What are they?? They are berries. Yeah, the kind that grows on trees. Folks are using them as a natural and biodegradable laundry detergent.
I'm curious to learn more....

Reminders on Cellphones...

Tel Aviv University physician and epidemiologist Dr. Sadetzki recently published results of a study in the American Journal of Epidemiology showing how heavy cell phone users were subject to a higher risk of benign and malignant tumors of the salivary gland.

Also heavy users in rural areas also had an increased risk b/c the phones emit more radiation to communicate effectively. Children are also at risk.

Dr. Sadetzki recommends that people use HANDS-FREE devices at all times, and when talking, hold the phone away from one's body.

Less frequent calls, shorter in duration, should also have some preventative effect.

This makes me want to dump my cellphone in the nearest garbage bin....

G-d bless!
