This is Moshe. He's from Israel but never gelled with the Jewish community in North East Los Angeles. So he bicycles around town by himself, reads a lot, and spends time shoveling around his front yard garden. Noah & I met him at the cafe. He was wearing a backpack bulging with root vegetables with the tops spraying out around his shoulders. He talks low and deliberately, and we listen. This man is full of wisdom about what matters and how to live. Recently he invited Noah and me to work in his garden with him because it's good for the soul and city people need it more than anyone. He sent us home with a cardboard box full of produce, which we turned into soup when we got home. Three different friends from the Coop happened to be sick simultaneously. So Noah and I dressed up like "Soup-er Heroes" in capes (he's six, you have to motivate them however you can!) and delivered soup on the stoops of our friends. When I shared with Moshe how his produce was used to make his neighbors well, neighbors he didn't even know, he was so inspired that he jumped on his bicycle and went home to plant even more vegetables! I love this story on so many levels I don't know where to begin. So I'll just say that it's the joy and privilege of my life to know Moshe, connect Moshe to others, and to deliver soup in a cape with my son.
