Good Morning!

Walking to synagogue this past Shabbat with my 5 year old daughter Shevy.

Me to a man riding a bike:”Good Morning”

No response.

“Good Morning!” (louder).

No response.


Still nothing.

Sensing my frustration, Shevy says: “It’s ok tatty, he is probably listening to music and can’t hear you”.

“Yeah, you’re right..” (slightly smiling now and feeling a bit better)

“Who taught you that?” I asked

“You did”

I’m not sure how or when I taught her this but was really happy to know that already she can allow someone else’s inability to see or hear to remain on their side of the street. I hope she will be able to do this for me as well.
