Weekly Quote from
Rabbi Mordecai Kaplan,
Today I rose from "Shiba" [...days of mourning]. I must say that my attitude toward its observance has changed. Whereas from the theoretical standpoint I had regarded the ceremonious visitations and the compulsory abstention from labor as a boring and burdensome experience now that I have had to go through it myself, I have come to look upon it as a useful and humanizing institution.
From Communings of the Spirit, Vol. I, page 109, Thursday, February 1, 1917; used with permission.
