Quote of the Day

“Our world history is inordinately affected by the history and thought of one people, the Jewish people. Though small in number, a surprising number of human institutions operate on Jewish principles (the calendar is the best example). Over half of the world’s population accept a Jewish idea which was once a rarity: monotheism. We might wonder if there is something about Israel’s story that is a key to understanding our story.
Our world history is also inordinately affected by the life and ideas of one [Jewish] man, Jesus, or Yeshua as he was known in his time and place. Though he died young and did not do anything on a world scale in his lifetime, Yeshua sent out a small group of ironically powerless followers whose ideas changed the world.
In order to write off or dismiss the notion that Israel and Yeshua are somehow central to the human story, you have to decide that the story of humanity is meaningless. That is possibly true. But it is not certainly true.
What if you open yourself to the idea that the Jewish people and the one Jewish man, Yeshua, are central to the meaning of life?”

About Monique

Chocoholic, jazz head ... prone to rants, and a professional pitbull. I married a terrific guy who happens to be a rabbi, so I guess that makes me a rebbetzin. Who saw that one coming? My grandparents survived the Shoah and spent their lives in the service of others. On my best days, I walk in their footsteps.
