J leaders Past Board Chair
While the sage Honi HaMe’aggel: was walking along a road, he saw a man planting a carob tree. Honi asked him: “How long will it take for this tree to bear fruit?” “Seventy years,” replied the man. Honi then asked: “Are you so healthy a man that you expect to live that length of time and eat its fruit?” The man answered: “I found a fruitful world because my ancestors planted it for me. Likewise, I am planting for my children.”
