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

Why Is This Party Different From All Other Parties? Vol. 1

When you throw a party you don’t need to write a detailed FAQ. But we understand that with a new thing, people need some more details. So here is the first in a series of posts with more details about the day.

Imagine a party which is not about hooking up, but about cleaning-up.

Instead of dressing to kill, you dress to get messy.

Instead of sporting nice shoes, you wear shoes that can take some punishment, or at least getting dirty.

Instead of needing to know people to get an invite, or just get in, you can pre-register, or show up on the day of, to be a part of it.

Instead of being impressed with how people dress, you will be impressed by how people work 🙂

Instead of painting the town red, see how many feet of curb you can paint red.

Instead of trashing the place, we will leave the place trashless.

You get the idea.

Beyond a service day, TIKKUNFEST is a celebration of service. Bringing together people under the umbrella of community service, social action, TIKKUNFEST features a romping concert, vendors, and good vibes. It is geared for young adults 18and over, but anyone is welcome.

TIKKUNFEST volunteers will gather at the registration point, be assigned teams, and spread out to complete a series of projects on 18 blocks of Pico Blvd. Hopefully everyone will have a chance to plant, paint, clean up garbage, sweep, wash, trim, and beautify the neighborhood.

At the moment, we are working on a few dinner options for volunteers. Make sure to bring cash or credit card for dinner.

This is a party with a purpose if there ever was one , make sure you and all your friends pre-register for chance to get a free collectible TIKKUNFEST T-Shirt!
