Happy Sivan!

Today marks the beginning of the month of Sivan. It was in Sivan that we received the greatest gift of all, the Torah.

And so, as we frantically, or maybe calmly, prepare for Shabbat this week, it is appropriate to reflect on the myriad other gifts we have been given. Whatever our personal or national gifts are, large or small, let’s take a moment over the next week or so to say thank you. We often overlook  the everyday blessings that surround us. For this one week, let’s open our eyes and really see the bounty G-d has given us.

And now to the Shabbat preparations – I am so grateful for the precious gift of Shabbat, and for the ability to help usher it in with grace and abundance, and just a touch of frenzy 🙂 .

Shabbat shalom and chodesh tov – to a happy and a mindful month!
