Honorable Mensch-ion


We are in graduation season. Pomp and circumstance constantly plays in my mind as I attend religious school, day school, and pre-school graduations. Parents shed both a smile and a tear, acknowledging accomplishments and challenges overcome.

Yet, what will we do tomorrow? How can we appreciate the feat achieved while keeping in mind that there is work ahead? The Talmud teaches that we cannot understand the words of our teachers until 40 years have passed. The words seem simple, but later become deep and profound as we experience the world. In essence, each day is a graduation for every one of us. Soak up the knowledge the world places before our eyes. Just don’t forget to use it when the time is right.
