We live in an imperfect world. Too often we see violence, misery, hate, and more depressing images on TV than we can process.
Our tradition teaches us that we always commanded to increase holiness. One way to do that is to make the world a little more beautiful. A few weeks ago, two members donated a picnic table. This table allows our office staff a place to eat outside, is located in our sukkah spot and will be ready for the fall. Yet it was, for lack of a better word, ugly. With the help of some young (and not-quite-as-young) volunteers, we now have a beautiful art piece outside AND you can eat on it.
Be inspired. Make your world a little prettier and your day will improve.
