Here is a thread from my Covenant & Conversation essay on #Naso called "Sages and Saints". You can read it in full here: bit.ly/2F9WIWe and download the accompanying Family Edition here: bit.ly/2KfGu27. #ShabbatShalom Image
There is a remarkable insight from #Maimonides into the nature of the moral life as understood by #Judaism. What he saw is that there isn't a single model of the virtuous #life, but two, calling them respectively the way of the #saint (chassid) and the way of the #sage (chacham).
The saint is a person of extremes. Maimonides defines chessed as extreme behaviour – good behaviour, to be sure, but conduct in excess of what strict justice requires.

@EricHolder has asked an important question:

#When was #America #ever #great?

I realize that there is a nearly unavoidable tendency to snort and spew one's coffee when they hear or read his question for the first time. But, honestly, isn't it worth the exercise to answer it?
So, @EricHolder, I'm going to do just that, and I'm going to ask my ragtag bag of followers and detractors to contribute as well.

I'm going to offer my evidence of moments of American greatness. And I'm going to ask those that read this thread to do the same.
But wait!

There's more!

I'm going to ask my detractors and antagonists (are you seeing this @fedupaton) to contribute as well, and will welcome from them both moments of greatness and moments of shame.
