The Hakaras Hatov Initiative is using a multi-pronged approach to facilitate the shifting of one’s focus towards the good.
A book of stories, ideas and insights on gratitude, arranged for daily inspiration, has been coauthored by Rabbi’s Shimon Finkelman and Rabbi Zecharia Wallerstein. Each an icon in their respective fields, the collaboration generated a sefer that is destined to transform lives for years to come. The book proudly joins the catalogue of the premier international Jewish publishing house, Artscroll-Mesorah. Let There Be Rain is an invaluable resource for character and relationship development.
Rabbi Zecharia Wallerstein, dynamic speaker and educator, has collaborated with renowned Judaica artist and author Rabbi Yonah Weinrib to create Sefer HaZichronos, The Book of Remembrances. Reminiscent of King Achashverosh’s personal journal to record kindnesses that were shown to him, Sefer HaZichronos will be YOUR personal daily diary and journal to chronicle—forever—- your expressions of Hakaras Hatov to those who have extended themselves to you.
Each day you can record your hakaras hatov… to Hashem…to a spouse..to parents..siblings..teachers..friends..strangers…You will reinforce your appreciation to others, and you can look back at the end of the year, and see how much others have helped you.. and how much YOU have changed because of it. A handsome full color, beautifully designed 7×10 journal, with regal artistic imagery by Rabbi Weinrib, and thoughts about hakaras hatov,will invite you daily to add your messages of thanks. It’s a perfect gift for your spouse, your child…your parent..and yourself ! Recognize the good in others, record it daily, and become a better person for life.
