Three aspirations

הרב שלמה וולבה
תמונה: ברוך יערי

Translation by Yehoshua Siskin

He was one of the preemininent educators of our generation, yet he is not sufficiently known to the public. It is 17 years since Rabbi Shlomo Wolbe passed away. Here are three aspirations articulated in his special teachings:

  • "Set one hour aside ,several times a week, to take a walk and ruminate a little about yourself. In this way, you will get used to living with yourself just a little bit more. Sometimes a person is afraid of being with himself, he becomes a stranger to himself and does not know himself. This is something to work on."
  • "Every day we encounter different people: a corner grocery store proprietor, a post office clerk, a bus driver, little children. We must try to emulate each of them in three ways. To learn from every person, without exception."
  • "In God - many people believe. This is not something unusual. However, many people do not believe in the greatness of the human being, but I do."

In his memory.
