Tisha B'av

Tisha B'av

July 19, 2012

'If we could all spend these Three Weeks healing our sight so that we truly only see the good in one another, how might the world be different? Imagine seeing the best not only in your friends, but in the guy who cuts you off in traffic; in someone who looks different from you; in someone whose political positions are the opposite of yours.'

During this sacred time of year for Jews, the Velveteen Rabbi ponders how she can not only stop seeing the faults in people but 'to perfect the art of seeing the good in people.'
