Recognizing the Good (Hakarat Hatov)
Wed, Nov 18, 2020, 7 to 8 pm Pacific Standard Time (UTC-8)
As Rabbi Bahya ibn Paquda tells us, practicing gratitude is one of the “Duties of the Heart.” As we approach a Thanksgiving holiday unlike any we have ever experienced, what better time to practice Gratitude? That’s right, practicing gratitude when we might be bereft of all the holiday usually offers us. After all, if not now, then when, right? For our ZoomShmooz, we will share what we are grateful for, and how we can make it a practice.
