The Secret of The Golem (2018)

BY OVADIAH TANK 

How good deeds ripple and cause great effects around us, and how negative actions come back to us, How we should respect the earth and environment, Not taking things for granted as MOSHE teaches us about his dead mother, Self sacrifice for the greater good as the MAHARAL teaches us in the opening sequence, And Divine providence.

The story begins with the current Rabbi of Prague not having a student to pass on his secret knowledge to, and ends with the Villain of the story (MR. RAW) poetically repenting and becoming that student in the end.

NOTES AND VISION WITH THE CONCEPT OF TESHUVAH (BACK TO G-d) THE MAN COULD HAVE A BETTER LIFE.

The use of G-d´s divine names in the enactment of miracles has been passed down from Rabbi to student since Mosheh Rabeinu at Sinai. One of the uses of the names was used by my ancestor, the Maharal, here in Prague to create a Golem and save the Jews of Prague from destruction. Many say this was just a legend others say it was a metaphor, but my father and teacher  has revealed to me the deep secrets of the universe. we fear that in our days there is not a student that is worthy of receiving this tradition. That’s why we are bringing THE SECRET OF THE GOLEM to the big screen to be preserved for future generations.

Cain and Abel (2016)

BY OVADIAH TANK

The Biblical Narrative of Cain and Abel reveal clues to this story that are often overlooked.

We have all heard the story of Cain and Abel. Two brothers bring their sacrifices to God; Abel's sacrifice is accepted, but Cain's sacrifice is not. Out of jealousy, Cain take's his brother out into the field and kills him. Because of Cain's sin, he is branded with a mark and sent away. However, if we carefully study the text, we find that there is much, much more, to this story.

In Hebrew thought, ones name is reflective of one's character and the Hebraic meanings of the names of "Cain and Abel" are windows into their characters. Cain is a possessor, one who has substance while Abel is empty of substance. This may seem odd to us, because we have always assumed that Abel was the good guy and Cain the bad, but this is an oversimplification of the facts, as according to their names, a reflection of their character, Cain is what we would call "a man of character," but Abel is "vain." When the two boys brought their sacrifices to God, Cain, the farmer, brought fruit from the ground he worked and Abel, the shepherd, brought sheep from his flock.

Kosher Diet (2013)

BY OVADIAH TANK

Generating over $12 billion in annual sales, kosher food is big business. It is also an unheralded story of successful private-sector regulation in an era of growing public concern over the government’s ability to ensure food safety.

Kosher uncovers how independent certification agencies rescued American kosher supervision from fraud and corruption and turned it into a model of nongovernmental administration. In overcoming many of the problems of insufficient resources and weak enforcement that hamper the government, private kosher certification holds important lessons for improving food regulation, Ovadiah Tank argues.

He views the popularity of kosher food as a response to a more general cultural anxiety about industrialization of the food supply. Like organic and locavore enthusiasts, a growing number of consumers see in rabbinic supervision a way to personalize today’s vastly complex, globalized system of food production.

A Book of Poems (2011)

BY MATT KRAMER

Matt Kramer the poet has been publishing his penned words for two decades as a lyricist and song writer. His first literary release is a poetry book titled “An American Profit” (Lascivious Books) slated for release October 31, 2007.

A Miami native, Kramer made his name as the lead singer of a high profile rock band signed to a major label. He toured the world and had hit records in the early 1990s, always writing words, lyrics, poems, and stories. His world travels, love of literature and musical genres that include jazz, blues, and opera opened new avenues to his writing.

“I write a lot of poetry these days, I think my take on poetry is a bit different from the norm,” Kramer says. “Starting my lyrical journey as a song lyricist I always pushed the envelope on the idea content, and with my poetry I make no exceptions. But I also choose more topics that a big bad rock star can’t write about, like the poetry I write when I’m at my cottage in Nebraska. My wife and I bought this cool little place in her home town of 300 people and coming from Miami it’s quite a different place. Last time I was there for 11 days and I wrote 33 poems in that time. They are more of a small town country feel that I could never express in my writing till now.”

Kramer’s poems dwell on the psychedelic swirl that is modern life: the current state of Florida’s Native Americans, his fellow rockers, the twisted dichotomy of religion, On The Road scribe Jack Kerouac, the business of show, the Three Stooges, and modern/false idols.

“Sometimes my writing is showing more of me than ever, the funny side, the quite sarcastic, sometimes very scary, as well as abstract,” Kramer says. “It’s a great way to mature my love for lyric.”

In The Beginning God Sang (2009)

BY OVADIAH TANK

So — what is the origin of music?

It came from God. It was given to man at the moment of creation.

Music provides joy because music has been provided by God. The theory of evolution can never postulate even a faintly satisfactory explanation for the origin of music or why it affects us. When we realise that God wants us to worship Him through music we see God as the Master Musician — the conductor of all life. Musical instruments are mentioned early in the Bible. We are told in Genesis 4:21 that Jubal was the father of all who play the harp and flute. Without the Bible we are unable to identify the first musician or the earliest instrument makers. It also tells us, in the words of David the musician: ‘The fool says in his heart, there is no God’ (Psalm 14:1). Serious reflection on the origin and nature of music may yet redeem many such fools.

Humans seem to be drawn irresistibly to music. We may not all know how many semiquavers make a minim, but we know what kind of music helps us to relax after a hard day. Nor do we need to know whether a sixteenth-century Phagotus was made with a conical or cylindrical bored pipe in order to appreciate the delicacy of Handel’s ‘Nightingale Chorus’ or the simple beauty of The Beatles’ song ‘Yesterday’. In fact, even if we were tone deaf it wouldn’t stop most of us from entering a debate about changing the national anthem.

Soldiers march better when they have band music to help them keep in step.1 Mental patients are said to have been calmed by the playing of soothing tunes. Work is done faster when brisk music is being played within hearing distance. National pride is heightened when foreigners hear songs from their home country.
