Thinking about the Sermon - Parshat Yitro


Last week in synagogue, I quoted the commentaries who explain that the Jewish mission statement is to live lives that exemplify human goodness and the ways of Hashem.

I told the inspirational story of Aaron Feuerstein, the Mensch of Malden Mills. You can watch a short video on this story here.

Do we live these values in our own lives?

In our businesses, in the store, in street – do we behave in such a way to inspire others to goodness? Do people who know us admire the Jewish values and commitment that inspires our behavior?

Here are another couple of stories to give us all inspiration:
