Chizuk Amuno Congregation

Lip Shtick

There is this well known teaching from Pirkei Avot that says, al tistakel be kankan, eleh be ma sheyesh bo. It means, “Don’t look at a vessel but rather at what’s inside it.” Or in other words, Don’t judge a book by its cover. However, I am not sure that the Rabbis intended that to be applied unilaterally.

I wanted to let you know that I’ve guest posted this week on a wonderful blog for clergy, Beauty Tips for Ministers. A well respected rabbinic colleague from the Boston area tells me it’s even better than being published in Conservative Judaism! I am pretty sure that she’s teasing me but I’ll take it as a compliment.
