SISterhood of Congregation Shearith Israel's cover photo

[09/20/19]   Late Night Show host Stephen Colbert, who lost his father and two brothers in a plane crash when he was 10 years old, recently shared these meaningful words:

"My mother used to say that during hardships in your life, try to look at this moment in the light of eternity. Try to see this how God might see it. Which is what we see right now, as opposed to the past or the future, which we can't affect in any way. You can try to see this present moment - whether it's good or bad, a hardship or a victory - with humility, with acceptance, and with love. You can't love something until you can accept it."

Shabbat Shalom!
