Thought for today – by Rabbi Danny Kirsch

When the gaon of Vilna was a very young child, he went out to play with his little friends , they were playing on a seesaw and he left and came home.

“Eliyahu ” his father asked him “why didn’t you play with your friends ?”
“Father” he replied, “It states in the Torah, you shall love your Neighbour as Yourself. How can I go up on the seesaw when it means I cause my friend to go down?”

These daily lifts are inspired by Jonny Chippeck and dedicated to his ‘refuah shleimah’. Get well soon Jonny!

Please step up to the plate and contribute your own small nugget of Torah by sending back to me at terence@speedquote.net. The more people we have contributing, the higher this daily lift will go. Keep them coming.
