Shabbat Shalom

Searching for a meaning in Life


Tel Aviv back and forth or vice versa - this is how my life looks. Despite all the heavy rain showers and flooded streets in Tel Aviv, my biggest personal surprise was the positive reaction on my writings in Hebrew. Not only that but the amount of readers.
Not to mention my spellings mistakes but people don't seemed to be bothered too much. I am improving and I hope I am succeeding in doing the same in English.:-) Through my Hebrew writings I found a few new friends. Believe it or not - in Jerusalem: Frum Haredim.

I was planning to write a more or less spiritual soul root explanation on the Erev Rav (Mixed Multitude) before Shabbat but couldn't make it anymore. So, at the beginning of next week, I am trying to get this done.

One of the Ten Plagues of this week's Parasha is "Darkness - Choshech". Lets admit: Each one of us has times of his own spiritual darkness. Depression, doubts and negative personal events.
Our task is to overcome all that. Throw all negativity into the garbage and simply be happy ! Nevertheless, reality is that even the Breslover Nanas sometimes do look unhappy.

There are things in life we have to deal with; if we like it or not. Trying to find answers and thus, a solution should eventually cause us leaving the darkness. But until then, you can still make look your life a little more shiny.

"Shabbat Shalom - Gut Schabbes" to all of you !!!


  1. shabbat shalom

    how many minutes takes travel from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv by car or bus?

  2. B"H

    Shavua Tov already !!!

    It depends on the day and on the time. Usually, without any traffic jams and accidents inbetween, the trip takes about 45 or 50 minutes.

    If you go from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv in the morning (between 7 - 10) you will face huge traffic jams and the trip is taking you an hour and a half. In the afternoons it is fine but getting worse again towards the evening.

    On Fridays or before a holiday, there may be difficulties as well. Especially at abotu three hours before Shabbat or the holiday comes in.
