Being Brave is … going beyond your nature. Sometimes we are put in situations that we are being asked to show up differently than what feels comfortable for us or is requiring a different personality trait that doesn’t come as natural to us. Like the brave and pious heroine of the Chanukah story who killed the general of the Syrian – Greek army. Her city was under siege, her people dying of thirst and though not a warrior, weight lifter or harlot she found a way to enter the enemy camp, flirt and entice the army general with seduction and kill him. She did the difficult and saved the lives of thousands with her choice to Be Brave.
6th day of the Jewish month of Kislev – the month of Being Brave
