El excanciller israelí Shlomo Ben Ami presenta su nuevo libro ‘Profetas sin honor. La lucha por la paz en Palestina y el fin de la solución de los estados’ en el Informativo 24 Horas. Confiesa que "hoy ya no tengo esperanza de una solución en la que habrá dos estados. Uno para los palestinos. Uno para los israelíes" porque "los pecados de la ocupación israelí se están convirtiendo imperdonables". Señala y cuenta que en una reunión que tuvo con el ministro de Asuntos Exteriores del Vaticano, le decía que “uno de los problemas es que los palestinos pretenden representar también a la Iglesia Católica en todos los asuntos que tienen que ver con Jerusalén” y añade que este conflicto es “muy complejo, un nudo difícil de deshacer.” Explica que “tenemos que hacer la capacidad de entender que a veces la guerra es más fácil que la paz.” Escuchar audio

On October 27, 2018, a gunman burst into the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, armed with a Colt AR-15 semi-automatic rifle and three Glock .357 semi-automatic pistols. He executed eleven Jews at prayer. When police arrived, they shot the gunman multiple times, but he survived and was taken into custody. Earlier this month, he was sentenced to death by lethal injection. How does Judaism look upon capital punishment? Does this killer still bear the image and likeness of God and possess a dignity that is irreducible, such that he could be punished but should not be killed? Or did he surrender that moral standing by the act of murder? Do resources from within the Jewish tradition suggest that capital punishment has a deterrent effect on other potential criminals? To think about these questions, Rabbi Shlomo Brody, the director of an organization dedicated to helping Jews navigate choices regarding aging, end-of-life care, and organ donation, joins the podcast. In 2021, he wrote an analysis of the death penalty for terrorists as seen by Jewish law. That essay, published in a volume entitled Hokhma LeShlomo, frames the conversation he has here with Mosaic's editor Jonathan Silver. Musical selections in this podcast are drawn from the Quintet for Clarinet and Strings, op. 31a, composed by Paul Ben-Haim and performed by the ARC Ensemble.

Ready to peel back the layers of the commercial real estate market? Get ready to grasp the concept of distressed properties with Shlomo Chopp, a seasoned player in this arena who transitioned from tech to real estate. We discuss Shlomo's journey, which was sparked by the 2009 economic crash, leading him to represent borrowers in CNBS debt negotiations. We also shed light on the role of technology in shaping the retail logistics landscape and the correlation between inverted yields and property values.As we navigate through the complexities of commercial real estate, we uncover how technological advances and the inability to adapt buildings quickly have turned this field into a reactive business. We evaluate different asset classes to understand how they've been affected by these changes, with a special focus on the office sector, which has been shaken up by the remote working trend. We further zoom in on occupancy rates to determine their influence on property values.Wrapping up our insightful discussion with Shlomo, we delve into the potential for distress and contraction in the commercial real estate market. We assess the impact of profitless startups on the balance sheets of individuals and companies, and how this overflow can affect industry players. Our exploration extends to the tribalism between lenders and borrowers, and its impact on the CNBS market. Finally, we discuss how social media platforms like Twitter have become an excellent avenue for sharing and learning about Shlomo's experiences in commercial real estate. This episode will surely equip you with valuable insights on the commercial real estate market from a seasoned industry player.

Welcome to our podcast, where we interview trailblazers who have made a significant impact by being human beings performing at their best. Today, we're excited to have Gur Shatz as our guest. Gur is an accomplished entrepreneur, having founded Incapsula, a cloud-based web application security and acceleration company that was later acquired by Imperva. In 2015, he co-founded Cato Networks with Shlomo Kramer, a leading all-in-one enterprise networking and security solution delivered from the cloud. Gur and Shlomo's vision for Cato Networks has been a resounding success. In just five years, they have raised an impressive $532M at a $2.5B valuation, and as of 2022, have surpassed $100M ARR. This makes Cato the fastest-growing networking and security startup, outperforming even industry giants like LinkedIn. In fact, Cato's growth rate is faster than many consumer-oriented brands, such as Wix, Zapier, Canva, and Shopify. We discuss: • How Cato Networks came to be and how experience in a field plays an advantage • How the team went about acquiring market acceptance • Selling to customers before you have a solution that's 100% functional • The need to convey confidence while experiencing constant paranoia and concern • How past success can also be an impediment to future success • The fear of growing into a large non-agile organization • What happens when leaders lose touch with what's actually going on in “the trenches” • Gur's leadership formula for time management • The importance of blocking time eternal learning • And much more! We hope you enjoy your listen!

Recording Available Via Telephone Dial: (605) 475-4799 | Access ID: 840886# | Reference #: 2381 The love that Hashem has for every single Jew is more than a parent could ever have for his only child. And just like Hashem's love is unconditional, so too our love to others should be unconditional. If a child, lo alenu, has veered from the proper path, the parents still need to give that child warmth and love. Rav Gershon Edelstein, zatzal, was clear that the way to bring back wayward children is through acceptance and love. Every child knows what his parents really want from him. And if the parent is able to win the child over with love, b'ezrat Hashem, that child will eventually come back. Rabbi Yitzchak Zilberstein told an amazing story that was related by a man who we'll call Shlomo. Shlomo said his father had the job in the yeshiva dormitory of waking up the boys. One morning, he softly tapped the shoulder of one of the boys, but for some reason that boy woke up in a fright and slapped him across the face. He then turned over and went back to sleep. Shlomo's father was in shock, but he left the room without saying a word. After he calmed down, he realized that the boy didn't really know what he was doing and had no control over his actions. When the boy entered the Bet Midrash, he did not go over to him to apologize, which made it clear he hadn't even realized what he did. When he was told by others what happened, he immediately went and begged for forgiveness. Shlomo's father reassured him that he understood it was done while he was sleeping. However, when the president of the yeshiva found out what happened, he called a staff meeting and they decided to throw this boy out of the yeshiva. He came from a family at risk, whose brothers regularly found themselves in and out of prison and they were concerned that he would negatively influence the other boys there. When Shlomo's father heard about this, he told them, “If the boy goes, I go.” He was so worried, if this boy would be thrown out of the yeshiva, he would really go off the derech. He told the president he would personally accept upon himself to learn mussar with this boy every single day and teach him how a yeshiva boy is supposed to behave. The president brought it back to the board and they agreed to this solution. Years went by. This boy went on to learn in a prominent yeshiva in Yerushalayim and married a wonderful girl from a great family. Before the wedding, he once again went to ask forgiveness for the slap and, once again, Shlomo's father said he knew it was a mistake. Shlomo's father passed away at a relatively young age. During the shiva, a distinguished looking talmid chacham wearing a long black coat came in and sat down and shared in the pain of the mourners. Then suddenly, he stood up and asked everyone if he could relate a personal story. Though he was practically in tears, and it was difficult for him to speak, he told his story with eloquence. He said, “I am the boy who slapped your father in my sleep. And now I have come one more time, to ask for his forgiveness in front of everyone here. Today, I am a Rosh Kollel in the North of Israel. I have ten children, all of whom are bnei Torah and yirei Shamayim. And everything I have achieved is due to your father's merit. If I had been thrown out of yeshiva, I don't know where I would have ended up.” This story was published in the sefer Barchi Nafshi and concluded with a powerful message from that Rosh Yeshiva's son. He said, “A person involved in chinuch should learn from my father's example and always consider the future of the children he is teaching and generations that will follow. Love, acceptance and guidance is always the best way to go.”

Recording Available Via Telephone Dial: (605) 475-4799 | Access ID: 840886# | Reference #: 2378 Sponsored By Morris Ashear in honor of his wife Diane The pasuk says in Tehillim, אם ה' לא יבנה בית שוא עמלו בוניו בו – if Hashem will not build the house, the builders will be toiling in vain. This pasuk was said by David HaMelech to his son Shlomo regarding the construction of the first Beit HaMikdash. And the lesson he gave him is extremely powerful. David was saying, you may have all the money in the world, all the manpower, the best architects, the top engineers, everything at your fingertips, but if you don't have Hashem helping, then all of that is completely worthless. The pasuk continues, אם ה' לא ישמר עיר, שווא שקד שומר - if Hashem will not guard the city, then all of the efforts of the guard will be in vain. David was saying, you may have the best possible army and the most powerful ammunition, but if you don't have Hashem guarding, then all of that is worthless. How important it is for us to truly believe that we are nothing without Hashem. When the Jewish People were in jeopardy of going into exile, Hashem sent the navi Hoshea to tell them what to do to save themselves, and he gave them two instructions. First, make teshuva. And second, stop depending on the strength of man. He said, you can't rely on Ashur to help you, you can't rely on Mitzrayim to help you and don't think that your own strength can help you. You must know that you have nothing and are completely dependent on the mercy of Hashem. The next pasuk says, if they will accomplish those two things, Hashem will have an outpouring of love towards them and all of the decrees would be abolished. This is how valuable believing that people are nothing without Hashem is. The more a person believes he is dependent on Hashem, the more Heavenly mercy he gets. And the more he feels he can handle things on his own, the less mercy he gets. Rav Aharon Rabinowitz of Lida, a small town in Lithuania, once visited a very wealthy man attempting to raise money for a certain cause. This man had an enormous factory that was used for grinding wheat. Everyone from his town, and all the neighboring towns, came to his factory to grind their wheat, and that alone made him wealthy. In addition, he owned hundreds of acres of land, as well as boats and forests. He told the Rabbi, he serves Hashem, but not out of fear because he has nothing to fear. He was fabulously wealthy, plus he had insurance on all of his properties and holdings. However, one day, one of the top officials in the Russian government came riding by on his horse and he rode over the bridge that this wealthy man made by the river near his mill. The bridge collapsed and the official fell in and drowned. The wealthy man was accused of causing the death of this official on purpose and they claimed that he was a spy for Poland. He feared what the Russian authorities would do to him and so he took all of his money with him and ran away to the other side of Poland. He figured he would start a new business there with all of the money he brought with him. But to his dismay, a short time after he arrived, the currency that he brought with him was disqualified by the government and he was left poor and destitute. He was forced to sleep in a room in the local shul that was designated for the poor people of the town. A couple of months later, Rabbi Rabinowitz came there and saw this man and couldn't believe he was living in such poverty. The man said to him, “Hashem showed me clearly that we could never rely on our own strengths and possessions.” We need Him every second of the day and no matter how much a person has, he is nothing without Hashem.

Many of the mitzvot that we have require us to spend money on them. We must keep in mind that the One who gives us our money is the One who tells us to spend money on the mitzvot . The pasuk says, כי מידך הכל ומידך נתנו לך. Everything we have is from Hashem and it is from what He gives us that we give back to Him. We must also keep in mind what the Midrash says, אין אדם שומע לי ומפסיד – Hashem told us, a person never loses out by following what He wants. One of the mitzvot in the Torah is lending money. The way the halachot are structured, loans in general do get paid back. There is supposed to be a contract drawn up to record the loan and, immediately, when the loan becomes due, the borrower is obligated to repay the money. If the borrower does not have the funds, he must sell his possessions and keep for himself only the most basic necessities. One must even sell a Torah to repay his loan. This having been said, it still may happen that a loan does not get repaid. And in those cases, the lenders may feel cheated. They can rest assured that they will not lose out from the mitzvah that they performed. Hashem has infinite ways of helping them. They may not always see exactly how Hashem restores the funds to them, He acts in discreet ways, but He did tell us איו אדם שומע לי ומפסיד – nobody ever listened to Him and lost as a result. I read a story of a man, who we'll call Shlomo, who said that one of his friends once came to his house in tears, begging him for help with money. This friend said he was in desperate need of 350,000 shekels to repay a different loan. Shlomo had once mentioned to him that he had some money saved up, and now the friend was asking for it. He assured Shlomo that he would pay back every penny as soon as possible. Shlomo's sympathy welled up and he gave him the full amount. They set a date for the loan to be repaid by. But when that date arrived, this friend was nowhere to be found. He had vanished as if he never existed, leaving Shlomo with the knowledge that he would never get that money back. Shlomo and his wife were shocked. The pain and anguish they felt was indescribable. Years of savings were gone in an instant. They had to make many changes in their lives as a result, including Shlomo's wife getting a job. Some time later, they sold their apartment for 1.5 million shekels and signed a contract that gave them six months to find another place. They grew out of their apartment and needed something bigger. They figured they were going to have to move to an undesirable neighborhood to find a place that would fit their budget. However, they were amazed to find a full house close to their current neighborhood for just 1.9 million shekels, far less than they would have expected to pay for such a property. As soon as they saw it, they loved it. It was much more spacious than their current apartment and they would even be able to close off part of the house and turn it into a studio apartment which they could rent out to cover their mortgage. Still, the asking price was too high for them. They tried convincing the owner to come down, but she refused to lower the price under any circumstances. They then started focusing on that 350,000 shekels that their so-called friend took from them. If they had that money, they would have been able to get this house. They knew Hashem was in charge, and in order to evoke extra heavenly mercy, they decided to heroically forgive that friend who took their money. They removed all resentment from their hearts and accepted that it all came from Hashem for their own good. They then prayed hard to find the best house that would suit their needs. A week later, the owner of the house called them and said she decided to be more flexible and sell the house for 1.6 instead. Shlomo and his wife were ecstatic. It seemed so unlikely that this owner would ever lower the price. They truly felt Hashem giving them back the money that they had loaned. Hashem has infinite ways of helping people. It is our job to do His will and leave the rest to Him.
