Boy did I learn a lesson this week!


A great member of our community taught me an amazing lesson this week.  We were talking about growing Chabad of Temecula and how we can get more people involved, especially with the classes (mine and Natanya's) that are really worthy of attracting the masses. 

I was talking to him about being a leader and "if you know an aleph (first letter of Hebrew alphabet) teach an aleph."  

His response was showing me this 3 minute YouTube video, which I highly recommend you watch.   The whole point is that leadership is overrated, and the world needs better followers.

I'll have to do more thinking on this, because it's clear that we can all be leaders, and, "if you know an aleph, teach an aleph."  At the same time, I think this video might be driving home the lesson from Pirkei Avos, chapter 4, mishna 15 
Rabbi Matya the son of Charash would say: Be first to greet every man. Be a tail to lions, rather than a head to foxes."
