Torah Tuesdays: The more you give, the more you have

This is going to be a short one, as I am totally exhausted right now!  Less than two weeks until the concert.  Whoa! With physical possessions, once you give something away, it’s not in your possession anymore.  If you start off with two apples, and you give one apple to your husband, you only have… Continue reading Torah Tuesdays: The more you give, the more you have
