  1. I liked the quote talking about making your home in such a way that a stranger would feel happy in your midst. That’s what it’s all about right? Home…. a place that should embody all the comfort things our hearts need. Like momma’s chicken soup, warm hugs, a perfectly placed mezuzah, fresh baked challah, familiar faces around the dinner table, meaningful talks, and prayers. So many people are lost to “Home”. They never had it, have forgotten it, had an awful one, or are simply too busy to enjoy their current one. All that to say this… if we strive to make even a stranger comfortable in our home’s then love will always be permitted to stay. And what home doesn’t benift from love? That is how it resonated with me…. conviction,reassurance, and hope.

    1. Shira: Thanks for taking the time to comment. I agree with you that we can take the time to make others comfortable in our home. This act in itself brings love into our homes. I remember a few years ago, I was at a Chabad center in Democratic Republic of Africa and the Rebbetzin would greet me at her door when I arrived and walk me to the door when I was leaving. This small thing she would always do made me feel valued. I do this at my home since then. There are so many things men and women can do to make others feel happy while they are in your home. Love your words: “if we strive to make even a stranger comfortable in our home’s then love will always be permitted to stay”. xoxo Kenden
