And this is what's printed on one of the many treasured notes and keepsakes that lives on the mirror:
"Of all the forces that make for a
better world, none is so powerful as hope.
With hope, one can think, one can work,
one can dream. If you have hope,
you have everything."
Inspired by Ima on (and off) the Bima,this post is one in a series marking the days of the Hebrew month of Elul, which precedes the Jewish High Holidays and traditionally serves as a time of reflection and spiritual preparation for the new year.
