For those who have attended the Mayanot Birthright trip, you may recall the name of the tour operator - הַחֲוָיָה הַיִּשְׂרָאֵלִית (hah-hah-vah-YAH hah-yees-rah-eh-LEET) - the Israel (more accurately, "the Israeli") Experience.
To experience is לַחֲווֹת (lah-hah-VOHT).
What happens to us happens to us. But how we respond to what happens to us - much of our חוויה of what takes place - is in our control.
Today's "three weeks" call to action
I invite you to join me today in recalling a positive, successful interpersonal חוויה you've had - looking at what action you took for it to have gone well.
Then, plan another one using the same principles.
