Thank you so much, Ariella! I shared this with our youth today when I taught class. So meaningful!

I have come to realize in my 63 years of living, either you are influencing people ot people are influencing you!!! It is a constant battle of back and forth

BEHAR Makes Me Think About TIME, Too...

Wonderful message. Thank you much. But I was thinking about Sinai.

Why is Sinai mentioned, here? Perhaps the idea of Shimita can be linked to
the respect we may have for a mountain, or hill. We look up to it. It takes time,
skill and effort to climb. It can elevates us, constantly.

In the Shimita year, we have to make an ongoing effort to cope with change.
And on Shabbos, we have to make an effort, too.

Time is what life is all about. Shimita and Shabbos help us to elevate our time.
Thanks so much
