Tuesday Torah: Jews are Not All Alike
There are many of you out there, readers of my blog, for whom I am the only Jew you know.
You might think that all Jews are like me!
You might be...I'm sorry to say...wrong.
We are a very diverse bunch, we Jewish people.
Much like any other group, we are not all the same.
I love to know that there are Jews of all stripes out in the world.
Like this young man and his family.
The expression we use in Hebrew is "klal Yisrael," the community of Israel.
We are a community under a very large tent, encompassing so many different people around the world.
It happens, very often, that we discount each other's contributions. But trust me, it's best if we all stick together. We might not always see eye to eye. But I believe, in the long run, we do best when we support and care and love each other. Please?
That's my torah for this week. What's yours? Leave a comment below.
