The Prophet Is Human

Throughout the canon of Jewish literature and history, situation after situation unfold in which our ancestors are thrust into the messy reality that is everyday life. And a thread runs through our stories of acceptance, an embrace of the inherent vulnerability that all of life is. Health, success, love, even hate—everything can change, radically, overnight. Our Jewish traditions teach us to savor the sweetness that is life, the magic of the everyday. Every minute counts because everything eventually comes to an end.
