The Saddest Day of the Year

What we do on Tisha Ba'av

Tisha Ba'av

Sometimes people say, I can’t mourn over the Beis Hamikdash, it seems so far away. I want to feel Tisha Ba’av, but I just can’t. This is normal. G-d understands the limits of our imagination. He understands that we cannot mourn what we haven’t felt.
What He’s asking us is this: look at the world and miss ME. Miss seeing me in the perfect Jerusalem sky, that is now clouded with memories of blood and war. Miss me when you meet a fellow Jew and instead of acknowledging your shared memories and ties, you walk right past them. Miss me in the faces of children that are being hurt and in adults who are lonely beyond belief. Miss my presence. Yearn for me to return to your midst.
Be brave, be vulnerable. On all other

I Was a Powerful Kid

Reminiscing and Learning From My Childhood - To Help Those Powerful Kids

rivka malka

This post is for all those kids ( and their parents) who are powerful. Kids who have big mouths, big opinions, big feelings. Kids who naturally question authority and have spunk. These kids often get the best grades but cause the most trouble. These kids often have the biggest hearts and the most complicated ones. These are not the kids that get the award for best behavior, but when they grow up, these kids may just change the world.
I call them powerful kids. You can call them whatever you want. Just don’t call them bad. Listen to my story and see if you can find yourself in it. I call them powerful kids. You can call them whatever you want. Just don’t call them bad. Listen to my story and see if you can find yourself in it.
Were you a powerful kid? How do you actualize that power in your adulthood? What do you do for your kids who are powerful? Do they press your buttons? If so, I hope this post helps yo understand them. As usual, there is so much more to say, but enjoy this podcast and let it get you thinking about your role in a powerful kid’s life ( even if that kid is you, all grown up.)
And then share this post with someone who “gets it.” Because there’s nothing like the feeling of being understood.
Love, Rivka Malka
