PIRKEI AVOT: Chapter 1, Mishnah (Teaching) 4

Home is where you make it

Yose ben Yoezer of Tzredah, and Yose ben Yohanan of Jerusalem, received the tradition from him.

Yose ben Yoezer of Tz’redah, taught:

Make your home a regular meeting place for the scholars; sit eagerly at their feet and thirstily drink their words.

The text is clearly reminding us that our home has a personality. Home is where the heart is, or more accurately, home is where you make it. I read this text and feel that my responsibility is to make my home a happy place for me and my family. But also a place where those who I love also want to gather.

What is the blessing of your home?
