Bennett Cerf, founder of Random House Publishing, once said, “What I fear most is that I am not loved.” That statement probably reflects our number one fear, the fear of being rejected. At the core of rejection is the question, “Will I be chosen or will I not be chosen?"When I am chosen, It means someone has seen me as unique, that someone desires to come closer to me, to be on the same side as me...  Read More

How much faith is enough faith?
by Gino Grunberg on January 19th, 2022
In the book, Living a Life That Matters, Rabbi Harold Kushner wrote: “Most people are not afraid of dying; they are afraid of not having lived.” In essence he is saying that what frightens us most is the dread of insignificance; the notion that we will be born, live and die and none of it will matter. We desperately want to live long enough to get it right, to feel we have done something worthwhil...  Read More
