The Thank You Machine
An Important Message from Rabbi Simcha Weinberg
My students know that I refer to my Tzedaka – Charity box as a Thank You Machine. When I learn a new idea, I rise and express my gratitude to God verbally and in a more tangible way by placing a gift in my Thank You Machine. I do the same after a good prayer, an inspiring Shabbat, and to acknowledge any and all positive experiences.
I keep a Thank You list as well in my Service of God Notebooks, in which I record all my insights, new ideas, life lessons, and everything I learn. Those notebooks are the source of most of the essays on The Foundation Stone, The Foundation Stone Blog, Newsletters and all of my lectures. My expressions of thank you bear fruit.
I ask you to join me in transforming insights and good experiences into Thank You Machines.
