a Kind Glutton and Helpful Links
I’ll admit it, I eat way too much way too frequently.
I’m lucky that the usual punishment accompanying gluttony has not yet fallen on me, yet I know I have to work towards lowering my nosh and general food intake.
Last Friday my wife had spent the whole day cooking various delicious looking and tasting (yes I did) foods, yet the guests contented themselves with tiny portions.
While they certainly showed their appreciation with words and sounds they neglected to eat most of the food.
When so much effort is put into something one can’t be blame the hostess feeling a little disappointed when the enthusiasm is lacking.
Luckily my gluttonous nature kicked in and I finished everything to the last morsel (well not to the last, but enough…), with my genuine enthusiasm quite visible followed the disappearance of her look of disappointment.
Many great blogs are discussing what can be done as support to Israel, I’m surprised no one suggested increasing acts of Chessed.
Prayer, collective Tehillim, financial support are most helpful tools and should certainly become part of our daily routine, but I say; visit your lonely neighbor, take your children along to an old age home, go to nearby hospitals and inquire if they have any Jewish patients who could use a good Kosher meal or a comforting smile. Invite the new couple on the block for a Shabbes meal, offer to baby-sit for an overstressed mother, see if you can help your neighbor/friends/cousin find the Chavrusah he’s been looking for. Go on J-blogs and comment….
Call 5 friends and relatives in different sates and countries, ask for names of singles and see who you can set them up with.
HELP YOUR FELLOW YIDDEN CONCRETELY, I believe that it’s a greater (or at least equal) Mitzvah than donating money.
For great lists of things we can and should do for Israel and its Jewish inhabitants I urge you all to visit the following blogs.
much more useful than spending your day reading up to the minute news...
(which we all do.. unfortunately)
RR-thanks, how're you holding on there?
Personally, I am still planning on leaving in 3 weeks with my husband to go and support the homeland. This may not be exactly a vacation, but it will be a worthwhile experience. If the children of those Israelis, who are the same age as mine can go into the army and defend the homeland, we certainly can go for a 2 week visit.
By the way, all family and friends think we have lost our minds. Being in the minority has always helped here.
Socialworker-no one is expected to do all pf these things, pick one that you feel you’re able to do.
A big chessed can be accomplished in a short time span
LVNSM-thanks, sorry I skipped you in last post, a simple oversight.
Barbara-that’s quite brave, I myself am hesitant about going.
I understand that your friends worry about you, but I guess that there’s no greater way of showing your support.
Neil Harris- did you mean ‘until’?
The Sabra- only on three counts? :)
I guess you can force food down people’s throat, even if it is delicious.
Nemo-I’ll keep that in mind.
Okee-It’s always pleasant to find someone who read through the whole post and got the point.
David-It really ought to.
Seriously, your post is very true, but we all really have to take it to heart and do something NOW, rather than... oh, I need a few days to think of what kinda chesed i want to do, or can do....
Not that anyone here would do that....:) (push it off, i mean)
Thanks for visiting and commenting.
Very sweet of you! I know I'd be disappointed if no one ate a meal I worked hard and put effort into prepearing.
My husband and I are leaving for Israel in 3 weeks. We want to show our support, and will be bringing goods, and I plan to donate blood as well while we are there.
This is our first trip to the Holyland. Although this may not be the best time, it feels like the right time for us to go.
May this crisis come to a resolution quickly.
I’m glad you noticed that part of this post.
Suzan-Pray their kind is taken away from this world.
The sabra-So you’ve got a healthy appetite too?
Workigema-well it’s not about the quantity; it’s about the effort you make to get to it.
A working Ima has a lot on her plate
Barbara-You have more idealism than I have, I planned to go but now I have second thoughts
