Gratitude and Generosity of Spirit

Rabbi Shai Held

Life and the world are gifts: we didn't earn them, and we didn't do anything to deserve them. Acknowledging this is not only a cornerstone of Jewish theology and spirituality, but is the first step to real gratitude—gratitude that naturally overflows into generosity. Join Mechon Hadar co-founder, and head of the Center for Jewish Leadership and Ideas, Shai Held as he talks about one of the central tenets of Hadar's mission: we are not destined to be the final recipients of blessing, but rather channels through which blessings flow.
