L'chaim, a Zayde Adventure!: Memoirs of a Rabbi's Life
"Dressed in her Catholic school uniform, a pleated, plaid skirt and sweater, in comes Jessica, a sweet, gentle looking eleven year old child, with an adult size burden hidden under the sweater that sits upon her shoulders . Dad shakily reaches out and takes Jessica's hand . The older man dying from cancer completes the circle of healing by taking the hand of the young girl about to enter intensive cancer treatment. The man in the twilight of his life gives some of his remaining energy to help heal the girl in the dawn of hers." With these words, we are all welcomed into the circle of Rabbi Herbert Morris' incredible life. His love, warmth and devotion to his family, community and Jewish heritage shines through this emotional narrative written by his daughter, using events, stories, sermons and letters from her father's life. This man lived every day wondering what he could do to be a blessing to others. Reading his story, we are all blessed to have encountered him.
