   Posted by: Alon   in Blog

Shalom everyone!

Today, I’m happy to share with you the replies I got to the previous Weekly Survey – “What did God make you good at?” and also post a new question for you. So, please watch this video and answer this week’s survey question. Thank you for your cooperation!

What makes you hopeful?

Ironically, this post took a long time to publish. Why do I use the word ‘Ironically’ ? Because this is a post about problem solving – and I had to overcome so many problems that kept delaying me from publishing it. If you have been following my work on Tweet Your Prayers, you probably know that I run this operation from a rather old PC. Guess what old PCs don’t excel at? Well, amongst other things – video and more precisely – video editing. It was a massive strain on my computer, and it crashed a lot (a lot!), but I persevered, looked for alternative solutions, and finally found a way to make it happen. Tenaciousness and perseverance are extremely important traits, don’t forget that.

In this video blog I talk about problem solving – what should we do if we are faced with an obstacle, and I use a problem I’m facing myself these days as an example.

Without further ado, here’s my video blog. I’d love for you to tell me what you think and if possible – extend some help. Thank you.

Thank you for watching,

Blessings from the Holy Land,

Alon :)

Shalom everyone!

Here’s something for you sports fans: NBA star Amare Stoudemire is currently spending some time in Israel these days, and he seems to enjoy every minute of his trip! Here’s an interview he gave, speaking about his connection to Judaism, Israel, and his experiences touring the Holy-Land. It’s a fun interview to watch, because in a very simple, down-to-earth manner, Amare is giving us some perspective about our lives and how we connect to our roots. Enjoy:

Blessings from the Holy Land,

Alon

Panoramic view of a beach in Haifa

   Posted by: Alon   in Blog

Greetings everyone!

Here’s a quick quiz for you: What is the one thing Jerusalem lacks?

Answer: a beach.

When I saw this panoramic photo of a beach in Haifa (northern city in Israel), I immediately knew I want to share it with you. It’s a beautiful photo, which gives you a sense of the beauty there is over here in our side of the world.

Thank you Orli Yakuel (@Orli) for taking this photo and sharing it with the rest of us! For a large view of the photo, and for other photos, head over to Orli’s Flickr page.

Best regards from the land of milk, honey and… sand,

Alon
