Quote of the Day

I kept losing track of this one, so I'm glad I've nailed down the original source so I don't lose it again:
The Talmud tells us: “The righteous of all nations are worthy of immortality.”

....There are many mountain tops and all of them reach for the stars.

Morris N. Kertzer, What is a Jew? (1973), pg. 9.

There's a more recent version of the book from which this passage was apparently deleted. A shame -- it's a beautiful sentiment.

That certainly is a beautiful sentiment. If only more people thought that way...
