Middah of the Month of Av: Respect & Honor

“The word “Kavod” is from the Hebrew root “K.V.D.” (which means weighty or heavy).  The diametric opposite is the word “Klala”(curse) which comes from the Hebrew root “K.L.” (light).  When I relate to someone with due seriousness I honor him, and if I treat him lightly it is as if I curse him.” Rabbi Shlomo Wolbe

Practice:  Choose a 20-minute period each day in which you conscientiously acknowledge (say to yourself) that each person that comes your way IS a holy soul and consider how/ if it changes the way you interact with them.
