    Chanukah is coming. And I’m excited. And seeing it in a new light. (I know, bad pun.) By the time the delicious, intense floodwaters of the Tishrei holidays receded—with all the sounds, smells, prayers, feelings, ideas, soulful songs, poignant prayers and images they evoked—I was a bit sad, missing the intensity and more than a bit ready to resume normal life (whatever that is). During the pleasant, quiet routine thatI received an interesting writing job started to fall into place during the month of Cheshvan, I received an interesting writing job. A Chabad rabbi was encountering some resistance getting permission from his local government to host a menorah-lighting on public grounds. Although it was late—a mere six-and-a-half weeks until the start of Chanukah—he wanted to try one last push. Could I compose a cogent letter to help him? At first, it seemed a routine kind of request. He outlined some bullet points: a brie

  • 03/23/18--10:00: Daily Escape
  • Sometimes, we feel like prisoners in our own bodies. It’s almost as if we’re hijacked by a force that compels us to act in a certain way, perpetuating a bad habit or acting against our own principles. We can experience a daily escape. When we feel like our body is imposing a limitation on us—not allowing us to be free of its desires (think food, money, power, etc.)—there is a special prayer that can assist us. When a Jew recites the Shema prayer consciously, he says “G‑d is our G‑d, G‑d is one.” When we desire G‑dliness, He becomes “ours,” so to speak. When we “own” G‑d—when we tap into the fact that He is our own G‑d—it empowers our G‑dly soul to be free from the desires and compulsions of the body. This is miraculous, and similar to the Exodus the Jews experienced from Egypt. The Hebrew word for Egypt is Mitzrayim, which shares the root with the Hebrew word meitzar, or “limitation.” The “great escape” from Egypt
