    Why Doing Less Often Leads to Receiving More!

    Why Doing Less Often Leads to Receiving More!

    Since last September, the people of Israel have been living out the biblical command to observe a sabbatical year as found in the Book of Leviticus. But what does that mean? For many in Israel, it has meant allowing fields to go unplowed, not planting a vegetable garden, or simply letting the ground rest. And while this biblical directive is focused on the land, there is a deeper spiritual lesson for us all. As podcast host Yael Eckstein shares, the practice of shmita, the sabbatical year, teaches us that sometimes we need to do less in order to receive more blessings in our lives. Listen now!

    How We Can Make Every Day Count!

    How We Can Make Every Day Count!

    As kids, who didn’t count down the days until the end of school and the beginning of summer vacation? Even as adults, we sometimes count down the days to an important event — a milestone birthday, a wedding, or a special vacation. But if you think about it, in counting down the days, we can mistakenly relegate those days as obstacles to get through in order to reach the anticipated event, rather than as the priceless gift that each day is. On today’s podcast, host Yael Eckstein shares biblical verses that direct us to count each day in a way that celebrates the moment. Through ancient Jewish teachers, we will learn how counting each day — in the right way — is the secret to making every day count. For more information on today’s episode visit mybiblicalroots.org.

    As we pause this month to celebrate the women in our lives, host Yael Eckstein welcomes to the podcast two modern-day Women of Valor who have influenced and mentored her — Michele Bachmann, former member of the U.S. Congress and current Dean of the Robertson School of Government at Regent University, and Penny Nance, CEO and President of Concerned Women for America. Together, these powerhouse women discuss with Yael both the difficulties and opportunities women of faith in leadership face today, as well as the women in their own lives who influenced them. You won’t want to miss this inspiring conversation with these two women, who Yael describes not only as her role models but as role models for the next generation.

    How We Can Really Love Our Neighbors as Ourselves

    How We Can Really Love Our Neighbors as Ourselves

    What does it really mean to love your neighbor as yourself? As Christians and Jews, we agree this is one of the most important commandments to follow, but what does that really look like? What does it mean to love our neighbors as ourselves? On today’s podcast, host Yael Eckstein shares two insights from Jewish teachings from the Bible that explain how we can obey this commandment on a daily basis. As Yael shares loving others is not dependent on our emotions, but on our actions! We always have the choice to treat others the way that we want to be treated, and when we do that, feelings of love will follow … and we can create a world full of love.

    Lessons from the Holocaust: The Power of One Life, One

    Lessons from the Holocaust: The Power of One Life, One

    For many Jews, Yom HaShoah, Israel’s Holocaust Remembrance Day, is deeply personal. It’s a day to remember one of the darkest times in history that resulted in the horrific murder of six million Jewish souls. While it is a somber day when the entire nation pauses to remember the lives lost at the hands of the Nazis, it is also a time for us all to remember the lessons from the Holocaust. It is a time when we renew the pledge that the Jewish people adopted after this catastrophic event: Never forget. Yet as host Yael Eckstein reminds us, it is not enough to just remember; we also must take meaningful action. In today’s powerful podcast, Yael shares two valuable lessons we can learn from the Holocaust about the power of one — the value and importance of saving even one life and how even one person can make a tremendous impact in the world.
