We're All Brothers

Here's a rap I wrote on the plane:

There's so much war, people hurt each other

But the other dude, is really my brother

Just because his skin ain't white

That don't mean that he ain't right

Folks from East and folks the west

All got red blood in their chest

So it ain't the body that's really you

Rememba, bro, you gotta soul too

Hey li'l sister, you're really smart?

Listen up, open up your heart

The body stays here for limited years

Full of troubles and full of fears

But the soul you got inside your head

Is live and kickin', it ain't never dead

It's a spark of G-d, 'cause you're His child

Chill, my man, and don't get riled

If I'm His child and you are too

We're all brothers, it's really true.

So let's give faith and peace a try

God loves you, and so do I



A Time to Give

The closer we get to Moshiach, the more we are behooved to give of ourselves, in every way possible. The Zohar teaches that giving is holiness, while taking is the dark side.

With what's going on in the world and the tension on our borders, not a single Jew in the world has the right to relax now. Learn, pray, do a mitzva or whatever you can in behalf of our people everywhere, in Israel and abroad.

We can't go back to the intramural hatred mode, where I'll only donate to my own cronies and I won't speak to anyone that is associated with a different group. That "golut" garbage has to go - now.

Being 'religious" also doesn't cut the mustard any more. We must be givers - with all our hearts and with all our souls.

Few people will listen to me. But the few who do will turn the scales in our favor, hopefully, G-d willing. Have a wonderful and peaceful Shabbat!
