Be Surprised

Angela W. Buchdahl  |  June 17, 2020

Listen to Recording

Mantra: Haf’ta’ah=Surprise
Source: Abraham Joshua Heschel: “I would say about individuals, A Individual dies when they cease to to be surprised. I am surprised every morning when I see the sunshine again. When I see an act of evil I don’t accommodate. I don’t accommodate myself to the violence that goes on everywhere. I am still so surprised! That is why I am against it. We must learn to be surprised.”
