A Moment in Time: When Connections are Difficult

Dear all,

The other day I noticed a jumbled series of telephone wires. They were going in all different directions, and I was somewhat skeptical that communication was actually possible.

It’s like this in life sometimes as well.

Often when we have something difficult to communicate, something that may be upsetting, we go all over the place. We end up talking with everyone. Everyone. that is, except for the person we need to connect with the most.

It’s not always easy to be upfront with others.  But when we weave integrity and honesty with menchlakite, we ultimately make things better.  And while deciding to take the direct approach may take incredible will, the actuality of doing it will take only a moment in time.

With love and Shalom,

Rabbi Zach Shapiro
