Images of their unharmed blood covered screaming baby being rushed out of the building by their nanny will forever be etched in our memories. Images of a pair Tzitzit (prayer shawl) being waved from a window in the final hours of the siege will also… Read More »

Dear JLI Participant,
 
Thank you for joining us for the Class #3 of Soul Maps. This invigorating class really got us moving in the personal growth process.
 
The following is a summary of Soul Maps Lesson #3.
 
Introduction:
In the first two lessons we learned about the makeup of the human personality, the two souls the animalistic and G-dly, and how to control which soul will dominate in the expressive functions of thought, speech and action.
 
Issue:
We can always be in control and do the right thing. But a constant personal battle is very weary and unsustainable. We are looking for the… Read More »
