Books: ‘Holy’ Ethically Speaking—Rabbi Joseph Telushkin Covers It All
(Page 2 - Previous Page)He goes on to suggest that people should try to observe a "24-hour complaining fast," to hold back on negative comments and try to appreciate the good. And, he recommends that people try to "restrict their expression of anger to the incident that provoked it," not to bring in other incidents from the past.
He quotes Rabbi Nachman of Bratslav: "If you are not going to be better tomorrow than you were today, then what need have you for tomorrow?"
Rabbi Joseph Telushkin will be the Abner and Roslyn Goldstine Scholar-in-Residence at Sinai Temple in Westwood Nov. 3-5. For reservations or more information, call (310) 481-3243.
