"Your place is mamesh chelkat Elohim Chayim - a land of the Living God. Cicero said that "Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtue, but the parent of all others," and this is how we feel about our time with you for Shabbat. It was an oasis on all levels and we feel grateful for your hospitality, sharing not only your home, but your beautiful hearts as well."
-- Ori Har
Righteousness: (noun) adhering to moral principles.
There is a legend in the Talmud that in every generation there are 36 totally righteous people in the world – the hidden tzaddikim – whose existence holds the world together and keeps it turning. Most often they are hidden – we don’t know who they are. Just as often we don’t know who we are – or could be – at the deepest level.

Many, if not most, spiritual and personal development programs begin the journey by identifying what is wrong, where we are lacking, where things need fixing. This one is different.
“What is working, and working well?
Where in my life am I deeply aligned with my core values in thought, feeling, action and being?
Where in my life do I act out of pure righteousness (Not self-righteousness or self- rightness)?
Where am I most true to who I truly am – my deepest values, and highest hopes?
What gives my life meaning and transforms the way I am with others for the greatest good for all?
Building from this base, we seek to expand that virtue and value into every region of our inner lives and further into the world.
