Let My People Know

Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz: “It is not your fault.”

When I was a teacher I had all kinds of pupils, including those labeled “culturally deprived.”

I used tell those students – and sometimes I would have to repeat it every morning :

“There is nothing genetically wrong with you; it is not your fault that you are behind.

It just means you have to work harder.

But you can do it.

–Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz
