Let’s say that you meet someone once in your life. Random occurence.
For example, once someone helped me choose a bottle of Shabbos wine at the grocery store. That person did me a simple yet enormous favor. Sometimes I wish that I could go back and thank him so much. I hope he and his family are doing well.
Don’t they say that if you’re thinking of the Rebbe, z”tl, then that means that the Rebbe, z”tl, even in Olam Habah, is thinking of you?
Yet, maybe that doesn’t apply here… you could be thinking about someone else and that person could be thinking about someone who has helped him in his life.
Anything is possible.July 26, 2019 7:03 pm at 7:03 pm #1765874Sam KleinParticipant
The healthy right path of ruchnius that a person should. Choose is the path of always thinking and caring about others and not only thinking about yourself (midas sedom)July 28, 2019 7:23 am at 7:23 am #1765952RedlegParticipant
Frankly, i’m mildly annoyed when folks use the term “Yid” when writing in English. What’s wrong with calling a Jew a Jew? Is a “Yid” somehow different from a “Jew”? Also, when writing in English, I prefer using the term “gentile” to describe a non-Jewish person rather then using the transliterations of “Goy” or “Eino Yehudi”, not to mention derogatory names like “Shaygitz”. English is a very precise language with the largest vocabulary of any language, Use it. Oh, and don’t tell me that some Jewish concepts or Gemorrah terms have now English translation. That is rubbish. People who say that simply don’t know English well enough.July 28, 2019 8:54 am at 8:54 am #1766026PracticalPostParticipant
Very interesting thought. Over the years I have met people (even before I was 10 years old), maybe even only once. But I often wonder where they might be holding now. I feel like every person you meet makes a small/large impact on you (for hood or bad) and once in a while something resurfaces and you wonder about them.
