I’ve started a podcast. I’m still figuring out the best way to include it in this blog. In the meantime, you can click here to listen. This one is about 7 minutes long. I talk about how I went from being a college student in Ann Arbor to a Chassidic Jew. Feedback is appreciated.
New video, about tapping, also called meridian tapping or the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) . You may already be vaguely familiar with the concept. You tap on certain pressure points or meridians while repeating positive affirmations. Does it work? How does it work. I talk briefly about it in two YouTube videos.
I know I haven’t been posting recently. Here is a new short video in which a visitor talks about his excruciating knee pain, which left after a 5-7 minute treatment on a ramp just outside of a synagogue in Baltimore (that was the most practical place we could find at the time). It’s also on the videos page above. Music by Yehuda Glantz.

Would you like to be able to smile in the face of stress? Who wouldn’t? I will be in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida starting March 10, 2010. Here are the details about the first part of the event at which I will discuss “How to Face Stress and Keep Smiling”. It’s going to be at Rabbi Chay Amar’s Chabad House (Chabad of Golden Beach).
After the talk we will have a farbrengen. A farbrengen is a Chassidic gathering for group unity, aka “Jewish group therapy”. The Lubavitcher Rebbe also teaches us that you are able to give effective blessings to others on your birthday. So, prepare to be blessed…..
The next day, there will be a group meditation. The purpose of this group is to enhance well being and prosperity and improve relationship skills. And get ourselves more in tune with the future, already in progress, and to get ourselves ready for the arrival of Moshiach.
After just one session with Herschel, the message of self-hatred that had replayed endlessly [in my head] for so many years was gone. It felt like [I had experienced] a “spiritual excision” of an unwanted subconscious message that I had carried around since early childhood. I now feel free to move on, with a more positive self-regard and confidence about achieving personal success.
Additionally, my children have responded to the change [they see] in me by becoming more open, loving and joyful and less argumentative. My children are now saying, “I love you Mommy” and we’re having more fun together. We’re connecting like we never have before, which .. became the topic of my second session.
Doctor Peters, who is a client of mine, has a cousin we will call Dave, who had a biking accident. He was going down a hill very fast, braked very quickly to avoid hitting something. He flew off of the bike, and although he was wearing a helmet, Dave hit his head on a rock on the pavement, which cracked his helmet. He ended up in a coma.
He was med-evaqed to a hospital. Dr. Peters was there, and recommended to Dave’s wife that I come to the hospital to see her husband. When I got there, the wife informed me that the doctors are giving her very little hope that he will emerge from the coma, and if he did, they said, at best he would be “a vegetable”.
I worked on him and did a session with his wife. 6 months later he came out of the coma, and returned almost completely to his former capacity of movement, with almost no sign that anything had ever happened to him.
Now, do I claim that he came out of the coma as a result of my treatment? Was it a spontaneous thing? Was it something else. Only G-d knows. But I am very glad he is OK.
Rafi came to me, a man in his early 50′s who worked in a fish store. He had some hearing loss. He just had a hard time hearing and understanding people when they spoke, which is a problem if they are asking you about this or that kind of fish.
I addressed his hearing issue, partially. It would get better, and there would be noticeable improvement for weeks or months, but then he would come back and need to be worked on again. What is most interesting, though is that he decided, after working with me, out of the blue, to take on a second job as a fundraiser. One of the people he solicited ended up giving so much that Rafi collected (in one shot) $30,000 in commission. Not bad for a day’s work.
