Falling through the cracks

“The mouse is not the thief – the hole is the thief!” (Gittin 45a).

One lesson I take from this is that when fellow Jews seek nourishment in foreign spiritual pastures, I don’t blame them because they didn’t make the hole in the wall. Their formative Jewish experiences were usually of a culture, an ethnicity, a heritage, a tradition, an identity. But not of a rich and compelling path of personal spiritual growth and connection to God.
