Austrian neurologist, psychiatrist and Holocaust survivor Viktor Frankl once said, “When we are no longer able to change a situation… we are challenged to change ourselves.”
This had been a theme of the Jewish people long before Frankl so beautifully articulated it, and the events of 2020 have proven it so once again.
The challenges of 2020 have been historic. They have caused people all over the world to mourn loved ones, express gratitude toward frontline workers, weigh concerns for what comes next and deal with new and unexpected frustrations.
