One thought on “REAPING THE HARVEST FORM 2016”

  1. Yom Kippur. In Judaism this is the season of taking stock of how an individual has lived life over the past year. There is a moral obligation to establish justice in the world by being righteous, upright, compassionate and helping fellow human beings. There is a moral and religious obligation to act generously and justly. Tzedakah.
    I never feel that I have given enough time or spent enough of my funds to fulfill a fair share and justify the special life I have been able to live. I wish I could. But circumstances are always changing and, with that, the resources of time and goods. It is a New Year now and the rebalancing begins again.
