Thought for Sunday

“ ‘Chad Gadya’ (also) teaches us the importance of small acts...”

“ ‘Chad Gadya’ teaches us that even a small act of violence can lead all the way to God. So, too, can a small act of love...In Judaism-as in “Chad Gadya”- the path to God is marked by small steps rather than giant leaps. We cannot reach God through the grandest gesture, yet we cannot avoid reaching him through humblest acts.”

“ ‘Chad Gadya’ begins with 'one little goat' and ends with the One God.”
