What earns length of days?

Not taking advantage of shame

Always forgiving before sleep

Giving charity to honor Name


The good of each hour

guarded by Angels from above

to know Torah's inner secrets

must enter Gate of Love

There are serpents and scorpions

who send confusion to mind

prevent the unworthy from entering

no holiness will they find


From right side comes silver

mind free of evil passion

combining water, trees, and grasses

which Chochmah will help fashion


When generous with your money

length of days will be

more time with expanded awareness

and greater holiness will see

[object Object]Dr. Harry Hamburger is a neuro-ophthalmologist, who also has a Masters degree and certification as a Family and Medical mediator. He is called upon to do ethical consults at local hospitals in the greater Miami, Florida area where he lives.

Married to Claudia, the Hamburgers have two boys - Jordan 15, and Joshua 9.  Part of Jordan’s bar mitzvah celebration consisted of visiting Israel, where he read part of his Torah portion on top of Masada.  Joshua is a very spiritual young boy who lecturers his Dad daily on proper behavior.

After visiting Israel twice, Dr. Hamburger says, “I feel like it is my real home, and that I am living in exile in Miami.  I hope one day to have a home in Israel.” The doctor is a serious student of both Chabad and Breslov Chasidism, and supports both. Dr. Hamburger is also a long time benefactor of the Lev LaLev Fund.
