Rabbi Lazer Brody: The Voice of Emuna
Through decades of education and experience, American-born Rabbi Lazer Brody has devoted his life to helping others cope with the massive pressures of modern life as they affect both emotional and physical health. He is no stranger to dealing with ultra-high pressure and stress, as a two-war combat veteran of the Israel Defense Forces, having served his country in regular and reserve duty for over 29 years. Even after his discharge, he continued to confront acute stress situations as the spiritual rehabilitation chaplain of an Israeli prison, helping inmates cope with extreme anger, explosive negative emotions and the trauma of incarceration.   A former radio host and commentator on Arutz 7 Israel National Radio in English, he was nicknamed Israel’s “Voice of Emuna” by anchorwoman Tamar Yonah for his uncanny optimism and ability to see the Divine Providence behind current events. He is the author of a number of popular self-help books including “The Path to Your Peak”, “3 Words of Emuna”, “Old Isaac’s Trail to Tranquility” and more. For over twenty years, he has devoted extensive time and energy to globetrotting and inspiring audiences of all backgrounds in English-speaking countries worldwide and providing individuals of all backgrounds with spiritual guidance and holistic health coaching.   You can listen to his podcast here: https://emunabeams.podbean.com/   * SPONSOR LINK *   The Easiest Way to Elevate Your Elul   These weeks before the yomim noraim, can you take time for Tefillah?  This Elul, spend a few minutes each day to lift your prayer to the next level.

Aliza Bulow: Triumph in the Face of Tragedy
Trigger Warning: We discuss suicide in this episode.     Yaakov here, I encourage you to listen to this episode. It's one of the most powerful episodes I've ever recorded. Aliza is so strong.     Aliza Bulow is the founder and director of Core, an organization that connects Jewish women and strengthens Jewish homes and communities. In addition, she travels regularly to offer guidance, leadership training and strategic planning for Jewish Outreach organizations and Jewish communities throughout the continent. ​ Born to activist parents in the 1960’s, Aliza's community building began early as her upbringing was intensely impacted by her parents’ deep commitment to the civil rights movement. Her own activism took root during her early high school years in the fight for freedom for Soviet Jews. Her passion for Judaism and the Jewish people then took her to Israel where she studied for 2 years at Michlelet Bruria and Hebrew University. With a growing desire to build  and contribute, Aliza explored various avenues to serve the State of Israel and finally chose to enlist in the Israeli Defense Forces from 1982-1984, during the first Lebanon war.  She served in the Nachal Unit with a religious group that was dedicated to building communities in the Land of Israel. Though her dream was to stay in Israel, her soul mate was in law school in America. She married Ephraim Bulow after he graduated, and then they traveled to Russia to visit refusniks before setting up their own home in Long Beach, NY.     We discuss: being a giyorit, working in the army, raising a child with autism, life after her son's suicide, her marriage, starting Core and so much more.     More about CORE here: https://coretorah.org/     * SPONSOR LINK *   Check out Good Faith Effort!
