Everything a person hears and sees, taught the Baal Shem Tov, is meant for them: it’s all personal. Sometimes, in the course of a day, we hear a message we know clearly is intended for us: words or scenes that force us to think, to rethink, to look deep inside ourselves.
The right idea or sentence, delivered at the opportune time, can change the course of a day- or a life. This book is a series of such sentences, each one a jolt of encouragement and hope, a flash of insight or inspiration, a tool for navigating relationships with others and with yourself.
Meaningful Minute, compiled by best-selling author and journalist Yisroel Besser together with Meaningful Minute founder and coordinator Nachi Gordon, is about the power of one minute: every word a block with which you can build, every thought filled with potential to uplift – short, but so powerful. Join with your family, your friends, or just find a quiet space where you can savor the ideas on each page by yourself, allowing them to fill your soul and teach you about who you are.
This isn’t a book of information, and it’s not a biography about someone else’s life: it’s a book about you — not just what you can be, but what you already are.
