Hendel does Israel

While I may no longer technically be in Israel, I have no intention of stopping who I am or what I am about. We all know the timeless Chabad teaching of "Mach Doh Eretz Yisael" - its very empowering. I'll let you know about my journey, my struggles and my dreams. JaHbless.

the power to change

Ok, I apologise for not updating my blog - its hard to get to a computer - and I'm busy having the time of my life!

So an idea for this week...

I was learning a mammar which discusses Yaakov's avodah in refining Lavan & Eisav.

Eisav comes from the 3 unholy klipas, and we know, that unlike kilppas nogah, the 3 unholy klippas never change.

That, is the level of Eisav - a man who refuses to change.
There are people in this world, who are so stuck as they are, refusing to change, content with what they are doing.
They are scared, but they don't even know it.
They feel no reason to progress or regress, they have the right car, job, wife, and family.
They are missing so much, but they have no idea why.

How do you try and change someone that doesn't want to change?
Where do you begin?
What do you tell them?


Eisav hates Yaakov!


Here are some reasons:

1. yaakov is not scared to face an angry brother armed with 400 men
2.yaakov is prepeared to wrestle with a demon all night
3. Yaakov has no problem with losing

Yaakov splits his camp into 2 in case half get wiped out - his own children!

But Eisav, Eisav has to win. He can't accept defeat, he is angry, and wants revenge.

We cant be afraid to change.
We can't be afraid to fall and get hurt.
If we fall, from that place we will rise up and become stronger.

Rebbe Nachman says, "if you belive that you can get hurt, belive you can heal"

Lets try and change ourselves a little,
and shine some light into this dim world.
It so simple, but so hard, and at the same time,
so easy.

and now.... some pictures!

Mattisyahu Concert!

as a girl was

crowd surfing
the music stopped
and mattisuyahu

"I don't want
anyone getting hurt,

so please,
lets keep our
feet on the ground
and heads in
the clouds."

And that,
is exactly
we did.

my brother
my soul friend

I'll never understand

how the simple pleasures

in your life

make you





i love it!

but moishe
i thought that eisav essentially comes form a higher source that yaakov, and had enourmous potential that can only be realised with the coming of moshiach...
so how is he the 3 klipos tmeos, and at the same time hold such great potential?

and another thing...

the problem is that eisav is trapped in himself, he is self absorbed and he can't let go, but....but.... as soon as does, his potential can be revealed , and his high lights can be brought down for all to enjoy...
