As we currently face a global crisis that will surely be temporary; we need to take seriously the guidelines that have been put in place by the authorities. In Jewish tradition, when you face life endangering situations – “Pikuach Nefesh”; saving a human life, should take priority over everything, be it of religious, economic or social order. The most precious thing we have is a healthy life.
On this time of confinement, let’s take this opportunity to take time to reinvent ourselves and think on how we approach our daily lives. Let’s reconnect with our spouse and children, and using technology, let’s get in touch with the elderlies of our family and with our community.
This outbreak challenges us to consider the health of our spiritual life and to ponder on our mission in this world. As humans we want to, not only survive but also to thrive. If something as small as a virus is all it takes to spark a global disruption, every positive action, as small as it may seem, can create a positive universal transformation.
Let us then move past our instinctual reaction of fear and worry and summon the courage to respond with generosity and kindness to our fellow human beings. Perhaps you know of an elderly individual or a neighbor in need. Call them; find a way to bring them food, cheer, or other necessary provisions.
Today more than ever we need to connect and be there for each other!
In line with Social Distancing we will not hold physical gatherings in our premises however from now on, all our lessons will be free of charge and available to everyone online and live via a link we will provide to you.
