The Game of Life
The Ball is in Our Hand
“…My heart tells me my story goes beyond my own limited private life, which is why I feel obligated and duty-bound to share it with those who wish to hear it. I have no intention to preach any specific outlook or worldview. I do not presume to alter my readers’ way of life. My story will be told and if it impacts one person’s life for the better, to whatever extent, it will suffice.” (An excerpt from Anani)

The Game of Life
“For me, basketball wasn’t just a game. It was THE game, the game of life. Through basketball, I experienced life in all its glory – successes and failures, expectations and disappointments, fears and hopes, sadness and joys. Through the years it became apparent that basketball is a wonderful gift which allowed me to learn about myself and life, and mainly grow and evolve as a human being.” (An excerpt from The Game of Life)
In a unique and exceptional talk, Doron shares the story of his basketball career and the many insights and endless gifts he received from this game.
Using basketball, Doron demonstrates the connection between body and mind; the physical and spiritual worlds; the basketball game and the world of the Torah; and past, present and future. He explores issues such as dealing with crises and successes, changing habits, teamwork and collaboration, taking responsibility, self-empowerment and more.
It is an inspiring, thought provoking talk. In his own unique manner, Doron uses the basketball game as an allegory for life and utilizes it as an educational and therapeutic tool that can help us win a much greater, more significant game than the one played on the basketball courts – a game he refers to as The Game of Life.
