Coronavirus

10,000 confirmed cases of the Coronavirus. The Chinese cities are like ghost towns and anyone that goes out in public is wearing face masks.

Covering your face, may prevent the spreading of the disease, but there is also a ‘side effect’ that comes along with it.  It’s the missing smile! It’s not that everyone is depressed, but even when someone is smiling, you just can’t see it.

We cannot cure the disease – but we can do something on their behalf. Just smile to another person. Kabbala tells us that when one smiles, G‑d smiles back.

And the smile of G‑d can go a long way.
