Inspiration Raising the Barr Weekly Memo: Issue 326

This weekend we will travel to Columbus to share in the installation of our son-in-law, Rabbi Hillel Skolnik, as the senior clergy of a large congregation. At 36, this is quite a lofty achievement, though he has spent his entire life in the service of his faith and the congregants whom he leads.

We’ve been asked to share a few words this weekend about him which, while I thought would be easy, seems to be harder than expected. He has inspired and motivated so many, including me and Laurel, to reach out and do for others, and shared his optimistic vision and hopes for peace and friendship for all people. Looking for meaningful words, I decided to share with you 10 motivational and inspiring quotes in which I found meaning and hope they inspire you and your clients and lift your spirits on this glorious, sunny day.
