What does $1,000 buy you these days in Jewish life?
Maybe, if you're lucky, a full-year family synagogue membership. But what exactly does that mean? Two tickets to High Holiday services? Free parking? Entree to Kiddushes?

When we recognize the strengths, the potential, the gifts that others give to the world and us, we can see a glimpse of God in them.
