Here are six thoughts from different people on the nature of beginnings. Share the questions with your family or use them at your holiday table to inspire meaningful discussion about the nuances of the year past and year to come.
All beginnings are difficult.
Mechilta de Rabbi Yishmael
It’s a helluva start, being able to recognize what makes you happy.
There will be a time when you believe everything is finished. That will be the beginning.
A time comes when you need to stop waiting for the person you want to become and start being the person you want to be.
May this year’s troubles end, and a year of blessing begin.
Abraham Hazzan Girondi
