A Moment in Time: What Anchors You?

[additional-authors]
July 22, 2021

Dear all,

While traveling this week, Ron and I came across this sculpture of an anchor. It gave me pause, as I began to think about what anchors me in my own life:

My husband.
My children.
My family.
My memories.
My dreams.
My religion.
My congregation.
My hobbies.

While an anchor may ground us, it’s not about weighing us down. An anchor allows us to hold onto our souls at any given moment in time against a rapid current.

What anchors you? And have you acknowledged recently just how significant those anchors are in your life?

With love and shalom,

Rabbi Zach Shapiro
