"Don't tell God how big your storm is; tell your storm how big your God is."

I believe in God.

Rosh Hodesh Adar II

Today and tomorrow, we celebrate Rosh Hodesh Adar II. Th eholiday of Purim is this month. The Purim story, from the scroll of Esther, is a thrilling tale of villains, heroes, danger, and triumph. In my opinion it is one of the more exciting holiday stories. It is a mitzvah (commandment) to be happy on Purim. As such, Jews dress up in costumes, go to synagogue to hear the megilla read, and send baskets of food to friends, family, and the poor. What a great holiday!

About Me

My photo
I am a bipolar, Jewish young adult (had my Hebrew birthday, the one I count, and turned 23 this past January) who also suffers from Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy. I love life and I live for my best friends: they are my purpose and my reason for trying so hard. I remain passionately devoted to those I love; I will not let my disorders make me totally self-centered. I like to read, write, and sew. My Rabbinical school plans did not work out, and I am now hoping to go into the field of Early Childhood Education. Please note: I am currently maintaining only Carried in His Hands. Enjoy!
