The Prompter Room

For Friday, February 1, 2019:

 

The wise Rabbi Bunam once said in old age, when he had already grown blind: ‘I should not like to change places with our father Abraham!  What good would it do God if Abraham became like blind Bunam, and blind Bunam became like Abraham?  Rather than have this happen, I think I shall try to become a little more myself.’

Martin Buber, THE WAY OF MAN ACCORDING TO THE TEACHING OF HASIDISM
