The world offers the faithful Jew a false morality, a tempting world of wisdom, enormous salaries, and attractive culture pastimes. What can we do to inoculate our children against them?
When you think of the Geula (final redemption), do you think of a mighty hero who comes to make radical, sudden changes in the world? Our Sages give us a surprisingly different picture...
Do you want to have an impact on your family and those around you that reverberates long after you leave the world? Not only is it possible, it's essential!
The greatest wealth that a person needs in this world are children who walk in the way of Hashem. There is no happiness and wealth like that. How does one achieve that?
