Rabbi Goodhardt as he completes his 49 kilometer ride today in Melbourne
Think about this...
Thank G-d, the bike ride is over for another year. It was pretty wet and cold again, and as I was riding through the rain, one thought stayed in my mind. How many of the people Keren Malki helps would love to ride a bike through the rain? On this day when we recall the open miracles that were seen by whole world, I found myself thanking G-d for every one of the 49,000 wet metres I was able to embark on this ride.
And then I thought: All I am doing is using a piece of equipment - a frame, some levers, a couple of wheels - to achieve a goal I have set for myself. This is exactly what Keren Malki helps people do: with a piece of equipment - a frame, some levers, perhaps a couple of wheels - they achieve a goal they have set themselves. And believe me, the goals they set themselves are immeasurably more challenging and momentous than anything I would attempt.
So if Hashem has blessed you in such a way that you have been able to read and understand this message, if you have been further blessed with the ability to work and earn some money, please click to spread that blessing to others who have different blessings.
And thank you very much.
On behalf of all the children who will benefit from the new equipment, thank you Rabbi Goodhardt for this incredible effort.
