Rebuilder Series: From Divided To Reunited. By Marshall Lestz.

Good Morning Everybody,

When something comes between you and a fellow Jew, think of a tree that separates into two trunks. Yes, the tree seems to have “grown apart,” but it still has the same roots. Above the ground, the trunks look like they’re going in different directions, but beneath the surface they’re still one.

WE, ARE ONE PEOPLE. Individually, we may have issues that divide us, but at our very root we are one.

When a gap develops in one of our relationships, we must, must, must remember that deep down, we are still connected. That gap doesn’t define us, it’s just one part of a bigger picture. The rift between us might be the most noticeable part of our relationship, but hiding under the surface is an inextricable bond. We literally come from the same place, and continue to be nourished from the same Source.

And let’s remember, even though those two trunks are divided at the bottom, what happens at the top of the tree? The branches start to overlap and reconnect! Each side reaches out to the other and provides shade for the whole tree! Because when we rise above our differences, we can reunite and live as one.

May our eyes and hearts be open to the ultimate bond that unites us as one People — our eternal connection to Hashem and our Torah. And may this recognition be a source of comfort and hope that will help us heal our fractured relationships, and grow stronger and closer every day.   

Have a soulful day everyone!
Marshall
