A Helping Hand
It’s all about relationships
Like many children growing up, I was extremely impatient. And I found myself especially losing patience with my mother when she continued to talk to people after services at Temple B’nai Israel in Oklahoma City. Even when she said it was time for us to go, she somehow found yet another person. While this was frustrating back then, it wasn’t until I got to high school and college that I was truly able to articulate why my mother enjoyed talking so much with people at our temple: In the Jewish community, it’s all about relationships.
