I think the biggest impact that my faith has on how I live, is that I do not judge others. Also, it affects how I project
my faith. I value the Talmidi teaching to go about one's faith with humility, which means that I do not believe that we have
all the answers. We are constantly searching. I am not defensive, I do not feel the need to convince others that I am right
and they are wrong. I try to understand where someone is coming from, even if I might disagree with them.
I enjoy practising the customs and traditions of my community. It is my heritage, and I bear in mind that it is meant
to be a stepping stone to making me into a better person. In doing, I become. I feel calm and at peace when I practice traditional
Talmidaism has given me spiritual peace, and given me hope in the future. It has brought me closer to God, and the close
Presence of God has been a source of great strength to me.
