jEWISH REALISM Just wonderful! Hapiness was right there and I did not know? Reminds me of some texts from the Torah... We do not (I mean I, too many I's in my life: seeing the tiny missing mosaic) see what is so simple and obvious but wander everywhere as blinded individuals. Thank you so much Rabbi Greenberg for this magnificent presentation of Jewish happiness. All blessings to you. Please excuse my English. Reply

Transition Moses was the humblest man in this planet and we all can be too with transition and transformation with our minds of wisdom.
