A quote that was sent to me and made me think
“Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes, including you.” - Anne Lamott
An amazing story I heard (get some tissues ready)
This story of being in the right place at the right time, and how just a little love and caring can go a long way. Check out the short video.
The book I just ordered
Social Vision is about the only rabbi ever awarded the Congressional Gold Medal. Despite wide recognition of the Rabbi's impact, this is the first volume to seriously explore his social ideas and activism. he not only engineered a global Jewish renaissance but also became an advocate for public education, criminal justice reform, women's empowerment, and alternative energy.
You might not know that I'm a bit of a podcast junkie.
This episode came out last summer, when I heard it I got hooked to the Unorthodox Podcast. It's pretty thoughtful, slightly irreverent, and talks about all kinds of stuff that impacts all corners of the Jewish world.
Have a great Shabbos,
