ABOUT SIMPLE TO REMEMBER
This website was created as a result of my search into Judaism. I was inspired by the many incredible people I had come into contact with and started e-mailing friends their material. After a while, I thought, why not compile what I had found into one website and just send a link?
I absolutely must thank the people at the Afikim Foundation who have helped me take SimpleToRemember.com from its humble origins to the site you are about to experience.
Your feedback has helped improve the site, so please don’t hesitate to send me your comments and suggestions. I hope you enjoy the site as much as I do!
The Philosophy Behind Simple To Remember
Every person should ask: Why do I exist?
We live in a world with so many distractions that it is hard to find time to think.
Life will go by whether we choose to contemplate it or not. When we have reached old age, we will inevitably gaze back, having the time to sit and analyze our lives.
Did I look sincerely for truth and meaning?
Did I fulfill my potential with my talents and abilities?
Did I work to have close and authentic relationships?
What will they say when I’m gone?
Historically, Jews chose torture and death rather than conversion. Today, Jews are assimilating at numbers rivaling the Holocaust.
What is it that generations of Jews felt worth dying for?
What is it about the Jew that has captured the world’s attention?
If my children asked me, “Why should I be Jewish?” What would I answer?
Judaism contains a world of depth tragically unknown to most of its people. Thousands of years of the most incredible history lie in our backyard. We should at least open the door.
