It’s that classic Thanksgiving question with a bit of a Chanukah twist:
What are you thankful for? And what is that thing in your life you consider to be your own personal miracle?
Earlier this week, each Jewrotica team member took a few moments to reflect on and appreciate the blessings and miracles in our lives. We wish for you, dear readers, a holiday filled with love, family, friends, compassion, gratitude and great food!
This has been a year of personal transformation for me, and I’m very proud the person I’m becoming. I guess that’s my miracle-I’ve changed my whole life around and I’m still in one piece! I’m so thankful for the people who have helped me get through it all and that I’ve had the inner strength to follow through. I’m also extremely thankful for Ayo, who gave me the opportunity to help out with Jewrotica. It’s been an amazing experience, and I’m thankful for it every day!!
Happy Thanksgivingukkah!Like Ayo and Leora, I’m so grateful for Jewrotica. In many ways, becoming involved with it has been a miracle for me. Communicating with people who are excited by Jewrotica and want to be involved is such a thrill. It has been a very meaningful experience for me, as it has taught me so much about the exciting diversity and contemporary relevance of Jewish traditions. This has also been a bit of a transformational-year for me as well, and Jewrotica, along with several related projects, have done wonders for me in this process.
There are so many things for me to be thankful for, I hardly know where to begin. But, for the sake of brevity, I can focus on the source of all my bounty, and that would be my parents. Everything I have that is good in my life has either come from them or has been influenced by them in some way. My worldview, my Jewish identity, my love of Israel and the Jewish people, my choice in friends and how I spend my time – everything I have or am is thanks to them. I know, it sounds pretty hokey, but it’s totally true. If you’re ever in Montreal, stop by and say hi to them. My Mom will make you a sandwich, my Dad will tell you a joke. You’ll totally understand.
