What is your favorite Hebrew quote?
I love the verse ״הודו ל-ה׳ כי טוב כי לעולם חסדו״ (“Give thanks to the Lord for He is good, for His kindness endures forever”, Psalms 136). This optimistic verse is what my dear father always replies when asked how he is. Although he has gone through a lot in his life, he manages to remain grateful and cheerful. Following my father’s example, I try to always be grateful and maintain a positive outlook!
