Humans of Hebrew College Living Torah

By Wendy Linden

Ayalon Eliach“As the grandchild of three Holocaust survivors, the affirmation of ‘Never Again’ is very personal to me.  But that doesn’t just mean never again for Jews.  It means never again for anyone.  This commitment is not just a response to specific traumatic events in history.  I believe, as Hillel taught, that it is the essence of Torah: Do not do unto others that which you find hateful.  As a rabbinical student I am blessed to have the opportunity to delve deeper into the details of the Torah’s wisdom of how to make this world a kinder, more loving place; and to live out those lessons in very practical ways.”
