This post is inspired by a YouTube video by Rabbi Y.Y. Jacobson. He has a huge library of videos and I learn something important every time I listen to him.
But most of us are not highly-educated, articulate Rabbis. That, however, doesn't keep us from learning important things from each other if we choose to share our true identities.
This week I started planning my Just Be Jewish classes for Lifetime Connections Without Walls in Austin TX. I get the privilege of sharing my true identity as a Jew with elderly Jews and those who may just be curious about what Jews do. These are telephone classes, so there's no computer, tablet or smart phone needed.
Simply sharing about Shabbat at noontime on Fridays is a wonderful mitzvah for me, and I pray it will be a blessing to all the participants, too.
