    There is a woman out there who devotes her time to help Israel from afar. And I had the pleasure to talk on her Radio Show about my work with pro-Israel organizations, about the healing power of storytelling, and what a new media guru does.

    Because there is a lot you can do online to help & support Israel!

    If any of these resonates with you, tune on this Sunday, Nov. 20th at 6pm Central Time on MessianicLambradio.com

    f you are in NYC tomorrow, come and join us as we march towards the UNESCO building. While it is predicted to be a nice weather, we are not going for a sightseeing walk but rather walking to convey a strong message: #ShameonUNESCO!

    Well, it is no secret that I stand with Israel, and I turned into an active pro-Israel advocate. But this is not only about Israel and the Jewish people. It is about Christianity and my very own roots as well.

    The UNESCO has a long history of apparent anti-Israel agenda, which is outrageous by its own stand, but its last resolution is going against that Judeo-Christian origins that the USA, Europe, and Israel was built on.
    While tomorrow I'll march under the Israeli flag, Christians all over the globe are asking their people to send a Bible to the UNESCO headquarters and protest this way.

    And it's possible that half of the US is still upset about the election results, there is a vital point here: you go and vote for your President - but we have never voted for those UNESCO representatives who make and impose supranational decisions on us.

    Some amazing news out there. HealingInk, a project for which I led its online media campaign, made it to such major media as the Washington Post, CBS, Salon, Algeminer or the The New York Times.

    Always stop for a second and acknowledge why your project did so well, or check in what to improve. But also stop to cheer for your little triumphs before you start the next bit thing ;-)

    So this project is simply amazing, and today, we made news at the Daily Mail:
    "The men and women told their stories, which ranged from being ambushed during Israel's occupation of southern Lebanon to losing a partner in war."

    There is a tremendous work behind this trip on each and every level - and I'm honored to receive the trust to lead the online & digital campaign for #HealingInk of Artists 4 Israel

    #1 The word I would use @Virag Gulyas is, intense. The end of the article proves what I mean:

    Craig Dershowitz, executive director at the Artists 4 Israel charity which organised the event along with the museum, said its purpose was to help the men and women learn to cope.
    "The most important part is they are taking control of their bodies again," he told AFP.
    He said many people who are scarred "look in the mirror and feel uncomfortable because of a disfiguration, not feeling at peace in your own skin."
    But after getting a tattoo, he said, "now when you see (the scar) you don’t see it any more, you see art."

    Thanks for the tag Virag.

    I am so proud to be part of this amazing campaign.

    Let me tell you what it is: Variety Magazine is bringing forward a special feature on Israel this month. The publication comes out this Monday and the CEO of LiberateArt, the NGO I am working at as a New Media Consultant, made these features happen.

    Therefore, we are launching an online event in support of Israeli artists and to share all the features by Variety and some behind-the-scenes from Hollywood.

    You too can support this cause by clicking attending and help us to help artists fight the cultural boycott against Israel.

    Click on the link if you wish to know more and support the event!

    @Virag Gulyas - such an interesting, lovely buzz! I have participated in Christian denominations that deeply respect their Judaic roots and yet to experience Yom Kippur personally, cannot compare. This is a beautiful account, deeply personal, and I appreciate that you shared your experience with us.

    I think you are a talented writer. Thank you for sharing your internal thoughts. I do not know much about Judaism, but I am sure that - should there be a final judgment - it will be based on if you were a "good person" in relation to your potential. Some people make your time on earth harder though, if you do not follow their rules.

    Thank you @Virag Gulyas for sharing your journey. One journey started with Abraham and led to a statement of free will. God tells Avraham to "go to the land with" ְversus at the beginning telling him, "alone, to go from the land of his father" Both are father and son relationships; at first Avram is to go (to himself) away from his father's land, and now Avraham is to go with his son to the land of Moriah .

    If ever there was a great response to the affirmation that we have free will it is Yom Kippur and choice. Throughout Torah God tells us to choose. But during Yom Kippur services we read Isaiah 44:22

    "I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, thy transgressions, and, as a cloud, thy sins; return unto Me, for I have redeemed thee."

    How humbling can it be?! Here God is letting us know what He has done for us and then He says, so now you can return to Me. He is giving us a choice. Not only that, but He has literally cleared the path. But it is still our choice to take that step. Reminds me of even when we were facing life and death at the sea, as a people we didn't choose to go right in and choose faith and life, we needed a leader who took that first step in to model for us. God was generous then because He took into account our predicament and state of shock. On Yom Kippur we are not only choosing as a people but as individuals. So it is literally up to our individual free will.

    We, as individuals, are a work in progress. We make choices every step along our journey. Thanks again Virag for sharing yours.

    I have just now read this wonderful article and I must say dear @Sara Jacobovici - it is a beautiful expression of your journey - which I respect and appreciate your sharing with us. The following statement is certainly something quite profound: "to cease to interfere and allow what is to be and what is not, not to be. It is humbling in the sense that “the world can go on without me” and frightening because I stop to look at what I did over the last six days and take account, take responsibility." This is the awareness of a Sage.

    @Sara Jacobovici, what a beautifully written article about "I" and how "I becomes We." You wrote: "My “I” is anciently rooted but growing and thriving in my present ground. I don’t need to “let go” of my past in order to be in the present and look forward to the future. “I” exist in a relationship with myself, others and my world. Everything I do comes from and goes into this relationship." This makes so much sense on many levels and I think our past plays a pivotal role in shaping our futures. Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful article! PS: I loved Ali @Ali Anani metaphor about Trees.
