From Rabbi Michael Beals of Delaware :
"The story I’m about to share with you about Joe Biden is special -- in fact, I’m fairly certain I’m the only living person left who actually witnessed it firsthand.
We assembled the 10 elders together, and it was in this most humble of places that I began to lead kaddish.
I nearly dropped my prayer book in shock.
Senator Biden stood quietly in the back of the room for the duration of the service.
He said to me: “Back in 1972, when I first ran for Senate, Mrs. Greenhouse gave $18 to my first campaign.
Joe Biden didn’t come to that service for political gain. He came to that service because he has character.
And if we need anything right now when it comes to the leadership of our country -- we need a mensch.
I know this is such a simple, small story. But I tell it to as many people as will listen to me.
Joe Biden is a mensch. We need a mensch."
Thank you, Rabbi Beals. You're a bit of a mensch yourself.
I have the deepest faith that there is a 270+ vote majority in the Electoral College results deeply hungering to stand up tall and resoundingly express, on 11/03/2020 . . .
