The Power of Kindness

On Sunday afternoons, the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, would stand outside the door of his office to greet and bestow a blessing upon anyone who came to see him. He would often stand for hours, as thousands of people filed by, many of them seeking a blessing or advice about a personal matter or a spiritual dilemma. The Rebbe was once asked how he had the strength to stand all day, sometimes for seven or eight hours, to accommodate everyone. “When I see all these people, it is like counting diamonds,” he replied with a smile. “One doesn’t grow weary or weak when counting something as beautiful and precious as diamonds.”

This three week course will focus on the Jewish perspective of leading and living a life of kindness, positivity, and sensitivity in all of our thoughts, speech and action.

Week 1 – Thought: “Tracht Gut Vet Zain Gut” (Yiddish for “Think Positive and It Will BE Positive”
Week 2 – Speech: Words that Hurt, Words that Heal
Week 3 – Action: The Giving of Time, Self and Financial Support
