(note the one "gifted hypnotherapist ..")
As a teenager I only had one pair of jeans and became terribly embarrassed and ashamed when a cute boy at school smiled at me, because I was certain that he was laughing at my old jeans.
It took me many years to summon the strength to share my story: I grew up in poverty in the Ukraine (part of the Soviet Union at the time) and later in Israel, after my parents relocated there due to persecution based on a religion we didn’t follow or even know much about.
My parents were working many hours to make ends meet and we barely had money for food, everything else was considered a luxury we couldn't afford.
After college graduation and completing my service in the Israeli Navy, I married my high-school sweetheart of 5 years. He soon turned out … [Continue reading...]
Passover is an important Biblical-derived Jewish festival. The Jewish people celebrate Passover as a commemoration of their liberation over 3,300 years ago by God from slavery in ancient Egypt that was ruled by the Pharaohs, and their freedom as a nation under the leadership of Moses. It commemorates the story of the Exodus as described in the Hebrew Bible especially in the Book of Exodus, in which the Israelites were freed from slavery in Egypt.
Passover commences on the 15th of the Hebrew month of Nisan and lasts for either seven days (in Israel) or eight days (in the diaspora). In Judaism, a day commences at dusk and lasts until the following dusk, thus the first day of Passover only begins after dusk of the 14th of Nisan and ends at dusk of the 15th day of the month of Nisan. The … [Continue reading...]
