On days like today, I miss not living in New York. Because, back when I lived in metropolitan New York, we had two secular holidays in February- Lincoln’s Birthday and Washington’s Birthday. Our 16th and 1st Presidents.
Who is wise? S/He who learns from everyone.
These words from the Talmud (Gmara) remind us that we are never the smartest person in the room. We always can learn from another. Today, I will share words of wisdom from two great people- Rabbi Avi Weiss and President Abraham Lincoln.
