I was touched by both Rav Jill’s and Rabbi Gershom’s stories for this day. Rabbi Gershom shares a story about Yankel carrying water and how it is up to us, how we choose to see each new day or task.
Rav Jill tells us of She’ilah and how she requests to take her friends to the mountains to mourn together, her impending murder. Even when she knows she is bound to be sacrificed, she concerns herself with the needs of her friends, and worries about their trauma and pain.
Alison and David: Still catching up!
