The Chai Times // Sun and Moon + Torah Pictures
Jun 02, 2023 6:58 pm
Each one of us is both the sun and the moon.
The sun is constant—every day the same fiery ball rises in the sky.
But the moon cycles through constant change—one day it is whole, then it wanes until it has disappeared altogether. Yet then it is renewed, reborn out of nothingness.
So too, we learn and progress by quantum leaps and bounds, yet the timeless, constant wisdom of Torah doesn’t budge from its place. On the contrary, the more we move forward, the deeper we fathom the truths behind us.
Wishing you an uplifting Shabbat,
Rabbi Mendy & Mussy
p.s. As always, we would love to chat with you over coffee or drinks, about Judaism, or just life - reply to this email.
