Baruch Dayan HaEmes...

The Jewish world has lost yet another important personality. Reb Noach Weinberg, founder and dean of Aish HaTorah in Jerusalem passed away last week after battling a severe illness.
Known for his pleasant demeanor and strong belief that every Jew has a responsibility to reach out to one another - be they unaffiliated, assimilated, or just going through a rough patch - Rabbi Weinberg served as an inspiration to us all, spearheading the global Kiruv (outreach) movement with his own inimitable way of teaching.

I had the honor of working for one of his sons when I was volunteering at the Zone, back in the Holy Land, and I was able to see first hand the lessons he instilled in his children and students. I met him briefly - too brief to really engage him in any hashkafic discourse, but even in that fleeting moment, I felt the warmth he genuinely exuded.

May his memory indeed be blessed, may the many Ba'alei Teshuva (returnees to Judaism) that he caused to return - be they direct or through students and institutions set up by him - serve as a merit for him, and may he continue to help us up therre, near the Holy Throne...

Ditto to Karma
I never met R' Noach but just hearing or seeing him on vid you can see that he was bursting with life and caring for Klal Yisroel. Yahi zichro borach

China and Russia put the blame on some screwed up experiments of US for the earthquake that happened in Haiti.
Chinese and Russian Military scientists, these reports say, are concurring with Canadian researcher, and former Asia-Pacific Bureau Chief of Forbes Magazine, Benjamin Fulford, who in a very disturbing video released from his Japanese offices to the American public, details how the United States attacked China by the firing of a 90 Million Volt Shockwave from the Americans High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facilities in Alaska
If we can recollect a previous news when US blamed Russia for the earthquake in Georgio. What do you guys think? Is it really possible to create an earthquake by humans?
I came across this [url=http://universalages.com/hot-news/what-happened-in-haiti-is-it-related-to-haarp/]article about Haiti Earthquake[/url] in some blog it seems very interesting, but conspiracy theories have always been there.

Online guitar lessons are a great way to learn guitar. Cheaper and more convenient than private studio lessons, the technology is now at a point where the difference in quality is nonexistent and actually has many advantages.
