Love - Jewish Outlook

Welcome To Jewish Outlook

Love

 

A man and a woman were sitting on the beach. The woman says, “You look new around Miami Beach. I haven’t seen you here before.” He says, “The truth is, I just finished a twenty year prison term.” She says, “What were you in jail for?” He says, “I murdered my wife.” She smiled with relief and says, “Oh, so you are single!”

 

When we love each other in proportion, then we measure each other, “Are you good, or are you bad?” But if I love you beyond any proportion, then I blow my mind over every little thing that you do. Someone may be the worst Jew in the world, but perhaps one time he fasted on Yom Kippur, and it blows my mind. What do we know about each individual Jew? How can I know how many angels are created by the one good deed he does!?

 

The saddest thing in the world is that we know so much about each other’s mistakes, but how much do we know about each other’s good deeds? How much do we know about each other’s good points?

 

Rebbe Nachman says something that is just so very beautiful: Blessings are dreams, blessings are dreams…. If someone loves you very much, they can make those dreams become real.

 

GYd makes us love each other so much that behind all the brokenness, behind all that we go through, we recognize each other, and see how beautiful we are.

 

If I love someone beyond vessels, and you tell me that she is the most terrible girl in the world, really, who cares? I just love her. She’s terrible? So she’s terrible. She’s ugly? Good. Who cares!?

Daily Torah Quote

Joke of the day

poor man came to the house of an elderly couple. Unfortunately they had nothing in the house to give him except an old piece of fish “from before the time of Noah’s Ark and the flood.” Out of desperation, they served him this fish and the next thing they knew he had to be rushed to the hospital. The elderly couple, of course, accompanied him to the hospital but, unfortunately, watched him die in front of their eyes.

At the funeral the elderly woman was crying uncontrollably and her husband was having a hard time trying to console her. She was hysterically screaming, “The fish killed him, the fish killed him.”

The husband who couldn’t stand to see his wife in such a state comforted her and said, “My darling, it’s really not that bad. We had the merit of fulfilling three good deeds: Welcoming guests, visiting the sick, and escorting the deceased!”
