Make the Call: An Inspiring Yom Kippur Video

When Nancy Baida and Harry Ashkanazi had an argument, they never expected it to end the way it did. A powerful story about courage, humility and forgiveness.

When Harry made that call - he helped build a new community!

This video was most touching especially because I used to work for Harry's father, Sam Ashkenazi, z"l, a real tzaddik! I saw the way he treated his customers, his family and the general tzibbur. I am "shepping nachas" for him now, seeing his son follow in his footsteps. By making that ONE call, Harry helped to build a new community - his daughter married in to the Beyda family, Rabbi Gold's family...Yes, one man can be responsible for building a new world within his community. MAKE THAT CALL!!!

This is what I need to do and what I've been thinking about for weeks. What if the person never answers their cell phone and we have only communicated by text? Is it possible to apologize by text? That is not how I would like to do it, but it is a very strained/hostile relationship.

Might be better

It is of course preferable to communicate as directly as possible, but in the case of a strained/hostile relationship, a text might actually be better. The important thing is to reach out and take the initiative.
B'Hatzlacha - wishing you much success.
