The Simple Jew

                  WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A SIMPLE JEW? 

  • Keep your head bowed; you are not higher, better, or wiser than any other being, or than Hashem. 
  • Keep what you do to yourself (good deeds), and remain silent when you are spoken to abusively. 
  • Serve Hashem from your heart and soul rather than from logic and social pressure. 
  • Make Hashem into your best friend. 
  • Treat people the way you would like to be treated. 
  • Don’t busy yourself in news, nonsense, fashion, etc.., rather tune into your surroundings and seek to give.
  • Listen more than speak. 
  • Appoint yourself a Rav. 
  • Get close to a Tzaddik. Or at least try to reflect his good deeds.
