The first conscious moment of a Jewish day opens with the Hebrew words" modeh ani"- " I thank you". This instinctive expression of our pristine quintessence is our response to life itself; to offer gratitude to He who benevolently bestows this precious gift of life upon us. More than a feeling relegated to inner chambers of the heart, in the Jewish imagination, gratitude is most potent when verbalized and pronounced. Indeed, articulating our gratitude unearths the depths and breadth of our appreciation; it calls forth from within us an earnest feeling of reciprocity. By: Rabbi Raleigh Resnick, Pleasanton, CA.
