A Secret Jewish Recipe for Long Life

elixer cupWhat would Dr. Oz and Oprah say about this?

For generations we have scoured the earth looking for the elixir of life. We want a secret potion that will guarantee us long and eternal life.

Our doctors have discovered that a good diet, exercise, and good genes, among other factors, all contribute to a long and healthy life.

Is there a Jewish elixir of life? YES!

Honey cake.

You see, our fate is as much a factor of good health as it is a good relationship with God. It has been scientifically proven that a healthy spiritual life is another good determining factor for the length and quality of life.

When we celebrate Rosh Hashanah, and connect on a spiritual level, we are helping to extend not only the duration, but the quality of our lives.

Come to shul, eat some honey cake, do some praying and introspection, and leave renewed and rejuvenated.

May you be written in the Book of Life for good health, happiness, success, and peace.

See you in shul,

Rabbi Yonah

Join me for the Days of Awesome High Holiday Experience in Los Angeles

Divine High Holiday Experience 600Please join me for a friendly, joyous, participatory, and mindful celebration of the High Holidays with meaning, melody, and humor. It’s more than just “services” but a way to connect. Get the most out of these powerful days of introspection and join a community of welcoming folks who are there for the experience and the good food :-). We will be having a shofar blowing each day at 9:30am, 11am, and approximately 12:30pm. Some highlights of the Days of Awesome High Holidays include our New Year’s Kabbalistic Kiddush, break out classes, speedy yet intentional services, stories, meditation, song, honey cake, inspiring and chill atmosphere, great Chazzan. . . I really hope you can join us.

As I say in the promotion for the events: “You don’t have to pay a fortune, dress-to-kill, doze-off, question your tribal affiliation, be fluent in Hebrew, hear lengthy sermons, and eat stale honey cake this Rosh Hashanah.”

Reservations are required and cost a nominal $36 to help us pay for some of the costs. For those who want or cannot afford the price, there are also volunteer positions available. Send me a msg via Twitter or Facebook if you are interested.
