Chanukah Reconsidered

Chanukah Reconsidered

By Mark Sunshine | December 7, 2018

Chanukah? Every year we celebrate Chanukah without a lot of consideration of its larger message. Chanukah’s a fun holiday; but is there more to Chanukah than the relative fluff of giving gifts, playing with the dreidel and eating latkes? As it turns out, Chanukah speaks to our modern day American Jewish experience. Chanukah is all…

Mourner's Kaddish

The Mourner’s Kaddish Is For The Living

By Mark Sunshine | June 25, 2018

Mourner’s Kaddish: Central to Jewish Prayer The Mourner’s Kaddish is the most recognized and central prayer of the Jewish mourning ritual, even though it does not, even once, mention death. Starting with the prayer’s first verse, the Mourner’s Kaddish is a reaffirmation of faith, life and a prayer for peace. Instead of lamenting the past,…

Travel Insurance Makes Good Cents!

By Mark Sunshine | June 19, 2018

BE KIND. BE RESPONSIBLE. Purchasing your pre-need funeral arrangements is one of the kindest and most financially responsible things you can do for your family. Not only do you lock in the cost of your funeral at today’s prices (rather than future inflated and higher prices), you help your loved ones’ cope with your passing…

The California Wildfires

By Mark Sunshine | May 15, 2018

JUDAISM BROUGHT TO LIFE. Last week I traveled to California and visited Napa and Sonoma counties. The trip touched me in many ways.

Dog Sent To Wrong Airport by Airline – What If That Was Mom?

By Mark Sunshine | March 15, 2018

AIRLINES TRY HARD … … But they make shipping mistakes all the time. The latest shipping “kerfuffle” occurred when United Airlines shipped a dog to Japan instead of Kansas.  The family was apoplectic and the airline was profoundly embarrassed. The details are in the links below: Dog Bound For Kansas Mistakenly Shipped To Japan Via…

Philosophy of Winnie The Pooh

Winnie the Pooh says, “How Lucky I Am To Have Something That Makes Saying Goodbye So Hard.”

By Mark Sunshine | March 14, 2018

IT’S PAINFUL TO SAY GOODBYE. Most people don’t realize how much effort it takes to write something that is simple yet meaningful. Yet, the author of Winnie the Pooh, A.A. Miline, was able to communicate the meaning a message that readers at any age could understand. That is one of love, friendship, responsibility and profound loss.…

“They’re Gonna Lose Mom!!”

By Mark Sunshine | March 1, 2018

TRANSPORTATION OF THE DECEASED: That was my wife’s fear when her mother passed away in Florida. We needed to transport her up north for burial and we worried that she would get “lost”.   My wife was sure that if the airline could lose her luggage, then they could do the same with her mother.…

By Mark Sunshine | February 26, 2018

THE HOUSE OF HILLEL & THE HOUSE OF SHAMMAI Every Jew has heard the ancient stories of the Houses of Hillel and Shammai and their opposing views in the early codification of Jewish law.

By Mark Sunshine | January 18, 2018
