Joseph Telushkin
“An important feature of good characterization in a novel is that the characters are dimensionalized and are not all of one piece. Human beings, as Singer noted, have contradictions.”
Joseph Telushkin, Hillel: If Not Now, When?

“If God never gave me one more thing in my life, then you, right now, would be enough. You are my Dayeinu”
S. Khubiar, The Eagle and the Child: The Child
