About Steven:

For the three years of his field work for his PHD. from Columbia, our son & brother Steven Rubenstein lived with the Shuar Indians in the Oriente, the Ecuadorean rainforest. He shared their food, their work, their living quarters, their way of life. The Shuar, the only indigenous people in all of Latin America never conquered by the Spaniards, adopted Steve into the tribe and gave him the name, Nanki (brother). They became his second family and one of his prime concerns was the preservation and protection of Amazonian peoples, their culture and their environment..

Steven's other great love was his Judaism. He was a graduate of the Jewish Theological Seminary, had been accepted by the Rabbinical School, and for a time he was torn between that career and anthropology. Although he chose the latter, Steve never lost his passion for Jewish thought, Jewish tradition, and especially tikkun olam, "healing the world."

When Steven was in the midst of his field work, he travelled to the Oriente, where major oil corporations were exploring and drilling. We remember the shock he expressed at the disregard they exhibited for the effect of drilling on the environment and on a people whose lives depended on the ecological health of that area. You may, in fact, have read about various lawsuits here and in Ecuador that have resulted from this drilling.

Amazon Watch is an international organization that works to protect the rainforest, to advance the rights of indigenous peoples in the face of large-scale industrial development, including oil and gas pipelines, power lines and roads, to press for corporate accountability and to preserve the Amazon's ecological systems.

American Jewish World Service partners with Amazon Watch in its Northern Peru Project, which specifically works to accomplish these goals. Although the country is Peru, this specific area was once part of Ecuador and is in a region of the Amazon relatively near to the Ecuadorean Oriente, where Steven lived and worked. We, Steven's family, think that support of this effort is an ideal way to combine his two great loves, Judaism and human (including indigenous) rights.

American Jewish World Service will direct all donations in Steven's memory made through this web page to the Northern Peru Project of Amazon Watch.

We'd like to think that Steven is out there, cheering on our collective support of this project, one to which he would gladly lend his name, and a fitting way to carry on his work.

What Men Secretly Want review I'll examine whether Waterman, who admits that she had decided to settle for just about any man who would commit to loving her before discovering the original version of How to Be Irresistible to Men by Sarah Paul, has created a system that will enable you to monopolize the interests of not just men, but the men you're most interested in.,137356.0.html

El Reductor De Grasa Review

Chiropractors are health care professionals who prevent and treat spinal injuries. The main principle of chiropractics is to maintain the coordination between the brain and the nervous system, where the functions of the body are sent through the spinal cord and the vertebrae. One of the most prominent procedures performed by this branch of health care is joint manipulation or more commonly termed "joint adjustment." Though it is a popular procedure for chiropractors, it is argued to have no long-term effects compared to the use of other methods of treatments.

So many people speak negatively of the vegan diet, and this is no surprise. They have been led to believe their whole life that eating meat and dairy will help you to grow strong and healthy, and consequently if you do not eat these foods your health will suffer. But oftentimes, it is the health of meat and dairy eaters that is suffering, not the other way around.

While I cannot claim to be wealthy, and am still in the process of learning what constitutes a life of abundance, as a massage therapist and naturalist I am blessed with work that is fulfilling and provides me with the means to meet my needs. There are several aspects to consider when thinking about financial freedom; including these questions: what are the ethics of socio-economics, what are we thinking, and what are we doing? Throughout history, we find that every culture has deities in charge of money, wealth and abundance.

Diabetes Destroyer Review

Insulin is a hormone with remarkable functions in your body: without insulin, you do not survive for long. It's produced by the beta cells in the pancreas and travels via the bloodstream to a distant part of your body where it works to regulate blood sugar levels, particularly to prevent elevated levels on a chronic basis, or in other words - hyperglycemia. Conversely, glucagon is a hormone produced by the alpha cells in the pancreas, and has similar functions. It also works to regulate blood sugar levels, though its main function is to prevent hypoglycemia, or a deficiency of blood sugar in your bloodstream. Both conditions instigate physiological changes that may cause immediate effects or pose a significant threat to your well being. People diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes are more likely aware of hyperglycemia because this form of diabetes comes about due to chronically elevated levels of blood sugar.
