Rabbi Blanchard's Blurb
  • Most of us grow up wanting to please others. After all, our parents, our caregivers, our teachers and adults in general make sure that we get on in life. When  they think well of us, our life is easier.  Then, sometimes, the world  presents a serious psychological, moral or spiritual challenge, one where we have to decide what our life is really about and what serious personal risks to run in facing up to what is demanded of us. Others may urge and inspire us but in the end, we become truly ourselves when, as free persons,  we take charge of our responsibilities. Then, we know why we are here.
  • Reflections on the Biblical book of Esther
