Sivan: Living the Torah’s wisdom

Dear Friends,

This post is about the Jewish month of Sivan as it relates to The Chazak Plan: A 12 Month Journey to Spiritual Strength.

Rosh Chodesh Sivan begins Monday Night, May 30th and lasts for one day.

The festival of Shavuot occurs during this month. On Shavuot, we celebrate receiving on Mount Sinai the Torah, God’s instruction manual for life. Even those who are unaffiliated, without realizing it, observe part of the Torah. Take for example the 10 Commandments, many already believe in God, do not worship idols, honor their parents, do not commit murder, adultery etc.

Begin at whatever level of observance you are currently on, and pick one area you are motivated to strengthen this month. At the end of each day/week, mark off on your checklist if you kept that observance.

Question for the month:

“What area of observance will I strengthen this month or at least learn more about?”


The Hidden Side of the Ten Commandments

Take care and may God grant us success in the coming month,

3 Articles on Criticism

Dear Friends,

Here are three articles on criticism.

Often, out of habit, we criticize at the wrong time and in the wrong way. Instead, pause for a moment and ask yourself, "Is now the best time to say this?" 

Have a great week,
