Extrait du Talmud
Si tu as raison alors il est inutile de t’énerver
Et si tu as tort, alors tu n’as aucun droit de t’énerver.
La patience au sein de la famille, c’est l’amour.
La patience avec les autres, c’est le respect.
La patience envers soi c’est la confiance et la patience envers D.ieu, c’est la foi.
Ne pense jamais trop au passé, cela t’apportera des larmes,
Ne pense pas trop au futur, cela t’apportera la peur.
Vis le moment présent avec un sourire, cela t’apportera joie et réconfort.
Chaque épreuve dans nos vies nous rend amer ou meilleur.
Chaque problème est là pour nous former ou nous briser.
Le choix dépend de nous, que nous sortions victimes ou vainqueurs.
Sais-tu pourquoi D.ieu a créé des espaces entre les doigts ? Pour qu’une personne qui t’est spéciale vienne y glisser les siens et combler ces vides, en tenant ta main pour toujours.
Être doux avec son entourage apporte le bonheur, alors partagez cette note positive avec toutes les personnes tendres qui font partie de vos vies.. Good Shaboss.. 😍😍❤❤ #shabbatshalom#shabbat#jewish#torahlife#torah#thankyouhashem#jewishculture#jewishcommunity#jewishgifts#israeldesign#israeldesigner#madeinisrael#sefertorah#jewishwedding#jewishevents#jewishparty#jewishthings#roshhashana#torahstudy

My take on #kashavarnishkes inpired by a delicious #roshhashana dinner a few years ago prepared by a good friend's mom. I was pleasantly surprised by the mellow flavors of #kasha#buckwheat in this Jewish dish, since buckwheat also features prominently in the northern Korean cuisine (think #냉면#naengmyun - buckwheat noodles in cold broth). Because of its unique flavor, most places that serve naengmyun these days use noodles that have very little buckwheat contents, and you can barely taste it in those chewy, factory-made noodles. But here I was, at a Rosh Hashana dinner, thinking of the memories of growing up in South Korea eating naengmyun with my family. Recipe adapted from @nytfood #homecooking (I didn't have any bow tie pasta so used fusilli instead, and afterwards found out that "varnishkes" literally means bow tie noodles 😶)
Just finished a month long marathon session of Jewish holidays. Think thanksgiving meals multiple times a day for many days in a row. I'm exhausted and don't want to cook for a very long time. All over Facebook today I've seen posts from people talking about starting diets now that our holidays are over, losing holiday weight, detoxes etc etc etc. I'm so happy I don't go down that road anymore. I have no idea if I've gained weight over the holidays. I ate mindfully and intuitively and enjoyed all kinds of foods. If I did gain weight from the holiday food- it's not my concern. I trust that my body is wiser than I am and if I listen to it and nurture it (read: don't diet)- it will find its set- point weight on its own. Without my interference. My job is to take care of my body. It's not my job to worry about what it weighs. Today I'm putting on my hiking shoes because I've missed moving consistently these past few weeks. Im back to my routine of self care. So glad to not be joining the multitudes of people who start their diets today. #intuitiveeating#selfcare#jewishholidays#roshhashana#haes
My take on Hard Rock Cafe fajitas! It was delicious and so easy to make. I used Paleo wraps instead of regular ones and skipped the cheese. Holidays (Rosh Hashana and Sukkot) turned to be away from social media. I spent it with friend and family, traveling and making fancy dinners. Anyways, back to business now. Have you ever been in Israel on Holidays?
הגרסה של לפהיטס של הארד רוק קפה! זה היה טעים וממש קל להכנה. השתמשתי בטורטיות פלאו במקום רגילות וויתרתי על הגבינה. החגים התבררו כזמן ללא מדיה חברתית. ביליתי אותם עם חברים ומשפחה, בטיולים וארוחות ערב מפוארות. בכל אופן, חזרה לשגרה. איך היו החגים שלכם?
Tonight we are 8-10 people (not sure yet)

Hamentachen! I am testing a recipe for Purim
The thing I am most looking forward to is 25 hours off line. This weekly detox is so helpful to me..... Wishing you a peaceful Shabbat.
YOUR TURN: What is the one thing you are looking forward to this weekend?

THE MEANING OF SIMCHAT TORAH
Sukkot is followed by the holiday of Simchat Torah (lit. “Joy of the Torah”). Simchat Torah is when we rejoice in the positive connection we are granted, which is revealed to us by the force of connection, love and bestowal dwelling in nature.
We are joyful that we correctly realized the method of connection, called “Torah,” from the word “Hora’a” (“instruction”), and that we corrected ourselves to harmonize with nature’s properties of love, bestowal and connection.
The reason why this state of Simchat Torah is so joyful is because, since we reach complete balance and harmony with nature’s positive force, we finally find our perfectly integrated place in nature like cells and organs finding their fully functioning roles in a living organism. We thus feel the entire life of the whole that we’re parts of. This is the most sublime state that exists in reality. It’s what Kabbalists discovered over 5,000 years ago, and that they explain how we can attain its full perception and sensation.
The Kabbalistic term for this state is “Gmar Tikkun” (“the end of correction”). The holidays of the month of Tishrei describe the path from the initial decision to change—to become more loving, giving and connected—all the way to the final change we make in our fullest realization of our connection. This is the result on the eighth day, Simchat Torah.
This day is also called Shmini Atzeret, from the Hebrew word for “stop” (“Atzar”), which stands for the place where the correction of egoism-to-altruism stops, at Gmar Tikkun (“the end of correction”). READ MORE >> http://www.kabbalah.info/bb/sukkot-meaning/
Today we celebrated 🍏ROSH HASHANAH 🍎and Tashlich. I love all the symbolism incorporated into Hebrew holidays. Tashlich means, "you shall cast into the seas" we threw rocks into the lake which represented our sins being cast into the depths of the sea 🌊 where they are remembered no more. Some of the symbolism was lost to the kids, but for me when I threw those rocks it felt like a huge weight was lifted. What a joy to dig into the history of Gods people, with my favorite people! Chaotic, joyful, meaningful, FUN ❤️ Shana Tovah!! (have a good new year) 🎉🌎#roshhashana#tashlich
