26 Tevet 5779 — When the Soul Cries

What can we do when faced with the harshness of life?

When the soul cries

And the heart hardens in hatred and anger?

We can use all our strength to turn and notice something beautiful,

And name one thing we appreciate and love.

And in the tiny openings created by this awareness

We can place compassion tenderly upon our hearts.

The world needs our love, kindness and compassion.

Let us make choices for healing and connection.

Rabbi Yael Levy
