I received an email from the Jewish Women's Project for Ahavas Yisrael which got me thinking.
As we enter the colder weather and head toward winter, it is good to ask ourselves what light
we can shine to bring more Ahavas Hashem and Ahavas Yisrael into the world,
using our individual strengths and unique abilities.
We encourage each of the women in the AY Project to think of whatever way it might be possible to undertake something in your community. When the headlines tell us that one of the g'dolim is hit by a fellow Jew, we KNOW this is a message from Above. Let's respond with stretching and growth and bringing more awareness.
If you have any ideas, you are welcome to contact them.
