Thinking about the Sermon - Parshat Terumah


Last week in synagogue, I discussed how we reach greatness by becoming a giver.

Have you ever found yourself in a difficult situation in which you decided to help others, even though you are in difficulty? Did it help you to grow as a person?

Are you experiencing challenge in your life right now? Could you turn it round by asking the question: How does God want me to improve His world, even as I struggle with my problems.

One amazing person who did this was Rabbi Elimelech Goldberg who lost his daughter to Leukemia. You can watch his story here.
