Heart to Heart in the Kiruv World

In the spirit of תשעה באב, here’s a video from Project Inspire which I think you might find interesting, and perhaps even inspiring… (full disclosure: I’m featured in it!)

(full video here)

For the record (and I should probably write a whole separate post about this), I don’t like to call it “kiruv”, but rather loving people (hence the name “Heart to Heart”). As Rav Kook famously said, 

“If we were destroyed, and the world with us, due to baseless hatred (sinat chinam), then we shall rebuild ourselves, and the world with us, with baseless love (ahavat chinam).” (Orot HaKodesh III:324) 

I saw a line from Rav Amital zt”l (which also appears in Rav Kook’s writings) qualifying that oft-quoted claim: There is no such thing as undeserved love — everyone deserves it. It’s our job to discover why and how to share that love with others.
