God impressed this strongly in my spirit to create a platform for Him to raise women of prayer and influence.
I have incubated this in my spirit for years now. More recently, I began to understand clearly what God wanted me to do.
He led me to study the lives of women of character and influence in the bible and in our contemporary time.
Finally I zeroed in on Esther. The young orphan who became a queen by divine help and obeying practical wisdom.
God wants to raise more Esthers. God wants to raise women of prayer and influence. God wants to raise women that would partner with Him to make kingdom bold moves that would redefine the course of things.
God wants to raise:
- Women of purpose - Women of prayer
- Women of passion
- Women of Character
- Women of competence
- Women of contribution
No matter your background, if you are a woman, YOU are the one God is looking for. Don't you ever disqualify yourself. Don't allow your background to keep your back on the ground.
If you are already rising or up "there", there are better places for you. The path of the righteous shines brighter and brighter.
I would be sharing more on this, but Mark 8am December 1st, 2018 for #TEFILLAH ! @thewisdomplace

Gathering tonight with our community for #Torah#Tefillah#Tzedakah 5 pm. What will your mitzvah be? I'm thinking my #mitzvah4pittsburgh will be to call 2 community members to wish then Shabbat Shalom each week. What's yours?
Thrilled to be teaching a new bi-weekly class beginning this Shabbat @alamochabad library. I'd be thrilled if you'd join us! Jewish prayer, and the Kabbalistic teachings embedded within, are a ladder to divine consciousness. Master this link between heaven and earth, body and soul.
Second & fourth Shabbat of the month.
11:45 a.m. –12:15 p.m. during the Mussaf service. #prayer#tefillah#kabbalah#meditation#chabad#shabbat#judaism#soul
What a beautiful hallel together on Rosh Chodesh Cheshvan with our BPY family! This month is often called Marcheshvan (mar means bitter), given that there are no yomim tovim or fast days, which allow for spiritual contemplation and reflection, during the entire month - quite a contrast from Tishrei! Nevertheless, our students are praying tefillah with meaning and returning to regular Torah learning in the weeks ahead; we feel confident that they will make the most of Cheshvan as the spiritual seeds planted in the weeks prior will now take root and flourish. #bpychai#tefillah#RoshChodesh#BPYLovesTorah
My sweet friend @ezraweisz means more to me than I have ever told him. He's my Coach, my comedian, my sweat buddy, my "miraculous" entertainer and of course my friend! Pounding pavement for hours at time creates a special bond. My heart is with you right now Ezra. I love you and my heart hurts to know you're grieving. I wish I could make it better or at least lessen your load. #tefillah#loveyoutons#myezra
When I was growing up, every year, 2 days before Yom Kippur my father took us to the bay to recite tashlich. I remember the feeling standing among what seemed like hundreds of people all pouring their heart out to the One above begging Him to obliterate our sins... I also remember that after reciting the prayers, I just stared in awe at the Atlantic ocean and the beauty of the sunset (we always came in the evening) and I felt really small! In my childish innocence I truly felt that this special tefillah had no barriers, and it went straight to the heavens! This is my rendition of tashlich and the childhood memories associated with it. May we all merit a wonderful year full of all the good things we desire!
There have been moments, in this year of ache and change, when another, deeper register has opened up. I trust that words, details, stories will be given. For now I know there is so much I didn’t know I didn’t know. #teshuvah#tefillah#tzedakah#gratitude#abundance#love
