As you know, a few seniors were recently asked to talk about the role of Judaism in our lives. To me, Judaism means love--for people, the world, and life. First, it teaches me to love my family as well as the people who aren't as close to me through chesed (kindness) and Tzedakah (charity). Second, it encourages a sort of reverence for the world. With acts of tikkun olam (acts of kindness to repair the world), we strive to create and appreciate peace, light, and miracles. Finally, the Torah teaches us to love life and to live it fully. My grandpa used to tell us about his favorite blessing, the Shehecheyanu. It translates to "Blessed are you, Adonai our God, ruler of the universe, who has granted us life, sustained us, and enabled us to reach this day." Judaism teaches us to treasure life, which is why we say "l'chaim" (the equivalent of "cheers" during a toast), which means "to life." Overall, being Jewish has shown me how to love fully and relentlessly in a world where hate and darkness are often abundant.
