We do need to shift over!!

Yes: thinking of others is exactly what we need more of!!! Great lesson for this time of year!! However the word " deserve" is really not relevant in our world.... It's reserved for Olam Haba! There we will be rewarded by what we deserve!!! G'mar Tov to all!!

In response!!!

Rabbi Salomon is absolutely right!!! He describes my personality. I have always been a leader since my youth and for good reason I was chosen. I always keep in touch with family members, friends and acquaintances whether in writing or by telephone especially before Rosh Hashana and Passover even when they never contact me. I try to always greet new faces in shule and also try to always greet long time faces as well. This has always been my personality since elementary school 50 years ago to always think about others. There have been certain individuals who were not nice to me and even in those cases I was and still am friendly to them except in certain isolated cases where it caused me grief.

Vehaavta lereakha kamokha

Thank you for that inspiring video. I've read a story that goes the same way (I am not sure of remembering it well but still we can learn from it. And I apologize for not remembering the name of the Rabbi of the Story. I think it was The Maggid of Mezeritch).the story: a Jew when to a very famous Rabbi and asked him : I wan't to do a better yom kippour than before, what should I think during my Tefilah ? And the Rabbi answered: when you put on your Tallit / Tallet , make sure your franges (tsitsiot) don't hurt your neighbour's face !!!
