The Jewish value I connect with the most that brings out my passion for Judaism is the midah of “Chesed”- kindness. I look to Abraham, our father, when it comes to learning about kindness. On the third day of his bris, Abraham showed true kindness to the angels who visit him. Not only that, but He runs to them, as if anxious to demonstrate his hospitality toward them. We learn from him that no matter how difficult the situation is, we need to rise up to it and be kind. I try to live by this midah because you never know what someone’s currently struggling with and sometimes an act of kindness can really make a difference in how someone’s day ends up going. I strive to show my students the importance of kindness by giving them my 100% all the time and my greatest passion is teaching others the joy of being Jewish.
