Feed Me Bubbe

mitzvahs

Yesterday, I received a link via DailyGood, a wonderful resource for daily heart warming stories about real people. They featured Avrom and his Bubbe and their podcast called Feed Me Bubbe Bubbe (Yiddish for grandmother) teaches us how to make simple meals in our own kitchens. She also shares stories about her life. It is a wonderful intergenerational endeavor and well worth watching.

Thank you Avrom and Bubbe! This is a gem!

Mitzvah for the day: At synagogue I invited someone who was looking around for a seat to come join me.  Anytime we attend a meeting, religious service or another group gathering it is always nice to be greeted by a smiling stranger beckoning us over during our initial moments of pause about where to go. Remember to do that the next time you see a stranger in your midst.

What reminds you to be grateful?
