Finding the best Jewish quotes to exemplify the values and ideas that Judaism teaches has been a labor of love. We are indebted to the scholars, teachers, students, parents, and professionals who have put in countless hours developing this special poster series within the Harold Grinspoon Foundation's Voices & Visions® program.
Harold and I have learned over the years that Judaism’s wisdom tradition has much to teach us with regard to building relationships and living a life filled with purpose. These posters hopefully reinforce that premise.
These words are the gifts the Jews have proudly given the world. What better way to encourage you to wrestle and become more familiar with the sacred texts? They are yours for the taking: ready-made tools for Jewish engagement!
We are deeply aware that the Jewish future rests in your grateful hearts, inquisitive minds, and in your search for sacred moments to celebrate. How wonderful it feels to share with you 3500 years of Jewish values, knowing you will pass them on to your children, who will pass them along to their children and untold generations of children to come.
How blessed we feel that you allow us
to take this journey together. Thank you!
