You have a soul and a purpose, and you were blessed with the gift of life. There is a special magic that happens when your life is aligned with your soul and purpose!
With a summary of the weekly Torah portion and some #realtalk from deep beneath its surface, the Bytes of Judaism podcast is here to help you unlock your best life, know your WHY, and be everything you were born to be.
13. A Fresh Start Without Drastic Changes [Yom Kippur]
There is a decision that can — literally — make the practical difference that allows you achieve the things you know you have the potential for and you want to make happen!
It is a decision you can make at any time that will give you a real fresh start moving forward, and the days leading up to Yom Kippur are the perfect time to talk about it.
12. Are you living the life you believe in?
We all have values, but if someone observed you living life for a day, would their opinion of your values match your own?
Why is it that too often our lives don't reflect our values as much as we'd like?
What can we do about it?
11. The Most Valuable Kind of Jew [Shavuos]
Each of us is unique, better at some things and weaker at others, so which combination of characteristics is most valuable?
What is THE most valuable characteristic?
What IS it that determines how valuable each of us is?
We can't really ask The Creator, and even if we could, actions speak louder than words; we CAN look at The Creator's behavior, and when we pay attention the answer is clear.
10. The Happiness Paradox
Is it actually possible for us to introduce happiness into our lives?
This question has been addressed ad nauseum, BUT in today's podcast episode I approach it in a novel way that I’m confident will leave you with:
- a new understanding of the nature of happiness and
- clarity in deciding your path forward from now.
9. Decide to be free! You CAN if you want to and you know how
You can decide to be free; if you want to and you know how.
Life is complicated. For all of us.
With some clarity about what will and will not give us the freedom we're working to achieve, we can put our time and effort into the things that will actually make a difference.

8. Should You Cry?? [Parsha: Vayigash]
Or not to cry?
Crying can be very therapeutic. When circumstances causes us pain, processing the pain and express it through crying leaves us better able to deal with being in those difficult circumstances in much healthier state than if all those negative emotions were still pent-up inside unprocessed.
Considering how beneficial crying is, should one ever recommend not choosing to cry about being in painful circumstances?
The answer is a resounding YES! Sometimes.
A deep lesson from encounters between Yaakov, Yosef, and Binyamin in this week's #Torah potion.
Clarifying and Inspirational
The clarity with which Rabbi Glick coveys deep inspirational concepts in Jewish thought and practice is mind blowing...Such a pleasure to listen to!
