One People

Achdus is Hebrish for “unity”.

Indians from India and Shabbas

Well, today was Shabbas and I took a walk in the ‘hood.

We have some new neighbors, lovely folks from India.  Their 17 year-old was outside in the front yard, washing the car on the carport, blasting the car radio.
It really annoyed me.  It was such a quiet, beautiful day.  I was tempted to say something like, “You’re going to find that folks in this neighborhood nap on Saturday afternoon, it’s the Sabbath.  Perhaps could you turn that down?”

But I didn’t.  I walked on.

Two doors down a kid, Caucasian, about 3-4 years old, was standing outside his front door on the porch, bopping his head and sort of hopping from foot to foot.  He was clearly trying to dance to the music.  He smiled at me and I waved.

And I thought, how cool is this, a kid dancing on the porch to the new kid’s radio.

It is, you know.  Totally cool.

Respectfully yours,

zachdus
