I recently read a lovely teaching about the “disease of being busy” by Professor Omid Safi from Duke University. He wrote that when asked “how are you?” so many of us reply with choruses of “I’m so busy…I’m crazy busy…so much going on…”
Martin Buber, the great Jewish theologian speaks about the I-Thou relationship – that moment in a conversation when we truly see each other as human souls and whole human beings It is in that meeting of our hearts that we truly can see the Divine in each other.
Would love to see you.
Rabbi Jill Zimmerman
