Never Give Up Hope

by Rabbi Mendel Weinbach zt'l
The Color of HeavenArtscroll

When a lady in New York lost a ring in the ocean she gave up hope of ever getting it back.

Thirty years later a woman in Puerto Rico flushed the ring out of the ocean, thousands of miles from where it was first lost. She noticed that the name of the owner was etched onto the ring and set about locating her.

To those involved in outreach to alienated Jews, this serves as a reminder never to give up hope on a Jew lost to his people.
