Eye opener at CNIB

Friday, 7 March, 2014 - 1:31 am

Earlier this week, as we were affixing the Mezuzahs and setting out the furniture in our new Chabad Centre, a man whom I have never met before walked in. His face expressed total shock, and he started to speak in Hebrew.

When I introduced myself, he told me that he came to pick up his wife, who volunteers at the CNIB: the organization with which we share the building. After a few minutes of conversation, I learned that the man was 'Barmitzvahd', lived in Israel in the 70s, but following an incident in his life, hadn't connected with the Jewish community for a very long time.

I told him that the fact that the Jewish Centre ended up so close to him - might be a sign that it's time to reclaim his heritage... He nodded his head as if to say, "I got the message - you don't need to say anymore...".

Inspired by the teaching of Ba’al Shem Tov- that major events in the world may happen just in order to bring one soul back home, we could say that the purpose of this move was already realized. The rest of the nachas, which we will, G-d willing, draw from this beautiful space is a complete bonus...

Shabbat Shalom dear Rabbi,
Amazing! Like stones cast upon the waters, may Chabad create countless ripples reaching far and wide!
Looking forward to our first Shabbat our new (temporary) location.

I choose to experience life with the perspective that all events have a meaning and a purpose also. The fault I attribute myself at this time is only that in the midst of the struggles of our lowly world that the Almighty is in charge sometimes escapes me, in those time when I question my discomfort, I have but to ask that his will be done instead of mine to regain serenity and purpose. God Bless

Some people, especially those running on busy daily schedules tend to use the pills to help maintain weight since they can not afford to follow all the diet programs. This is not advised. It is recommended that one seek advice from a professional in this field before using the pills. This can save one from many dangers associated with the misuse.

The diet pills should always be taken whole. Some people tend to divide the pills to serve a longer period of time. This is not advised and can lead to ineffectiveness. If it is required that one takes a complete tablet, it means that a certain amount of the ingredients are required to achieve the desired goal. It is also recommended that one does not crush the pill and dissolve it in beverages. Chemicals found in beverages have the potential of neutralizing the desired nutrients in the pill thereby leading to ineffectiveness. The best way to take the tablets is swallowing them whole with a glass of water.

The diet pills speed up the metabolic processes. This is the key factor that leads to the burning of all the fats in the body. This means that one passes out lots of urine, which subsequently leads to dehydration. It is imperative that the user take lots of water round the clock. This will help curb dehydration, which can lead to health problems. In addition to that, water offers the required medium for the function of the nutrients and elimination of the fats.

When buying the review of diet pills, it is imperative that one gets the most recommended dose. People tend to compromise the quality and effectiveness of the tablets due to the variation in cost. The low priced pills depict poor quality, which means their effectiveness is not reliable. Some have also been found to cause health problems. The dose should also be taken as recommended. Over dose will not speed up the process but rather lead to complication. This will increase risk of side effects. If the taking of the pill is forgotten, do not take more to compensate for the lost time.

The diet plan enclosed with the diet pills has also to be followed. According to the requirements, the termination of the diet must be done even with no results. This means your body is irresponsive.
