There's a Famine in the Land

Joel Hoffman (a teacher of mine, to whom I've linked before) recently posted a beautiful piece, comparing our current economic situation to the famines our ancestors faced in the Torah. It's a quick read, but well worth it.

May this be a year of plenty for all of us.

Excellent point. When I was unemployed I had huge shame around what I coulda shoulda done - when in hindsight - what happened, happened.
thanks for posting.

Thanks for your kind words about my thoughts on "There's a Famine in the Land."

I've moved the piece to my own blog. The old link will not work for much longer.

Regards from NY.
