“Listening is much more important than speaking.” Participants in Moment’s Wisdom Project, which highlights stories of those lucky enough to have lived long Jewish lives, share their words of wisdom and pieces of advice as the year comes to an end.
That’s why on this past Mother’s Day, we wanted to honor those Jewish moms who work hard to make sure we eat enough, call enough and know how much they care. We asked you, our readers to share some advice and tidbits your Jewish moms gave you and collected the responses in this “Jewish Mothers Know Best” (belated) Mother’s Day special. Some of the advice seems facetious, many of it is expectedly sensible and it all comes from a place of love.
Sharansky, the refusnik who spent nine years in a Soviet prison, gives advice for those facing self-quarantine.
