In his book, The Path to Kindness, James Crews, also editor of How to Love the World, collected some very special poems of connection and joy. In the forward he wrote, “Poems are a path to connection. Simple gestures of kindness can make our day, open our hearts, change our minds, and brighten our world-especially in times of uncertainty.”

Don’t you agree that when we allow kindness from others to wash over us, we then want to share kindness in return. I hunt for kindness. I seek it out in books, music, conversations, and interactions with strangers, with my family, with my husband, with my friends.

Flourless Chocolate Cake

Cooking spray
6 oz. bittersweet chocolate, roughly chopped
1/2 c. (1 stick) butter, cut into large chunks
1 tsp. instant espresso powder
1/4 c. hot water
1 c. granulated sugar
4 large eggs
3/4 c. unsweetened cocoa powder (preferably Dutch process)

1/2 c. heavy cream
1 c. semisweet chocolate chips
Raspberries, for serving

1) Preheat oven to 350° and grease an 8" springform pan with cooking spray. 
2) Make cake: Place a small saucepan filled halfway with water over medium heat and bring to a simmer. Place bittersweet chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl and set over the simmering pot, ensuring the water does not touch the bottom of the bowl. Stir until chocolate and butter are completely melted. Turn off heat and remove bowl from saucepan. 
3) Dissolve espresso powder in hot water. Add sugar and espresso to melted chocolate and whisk until completely combined then add eggs and whisk to combine. Stir in cocoa powder.  
4) Pour batter into prepared springform pan and bake until just set in the middle and a thin crust forms, about 35 minutes.  
5) Let cake cool for 15 minutes, then remove sides of springform pan. Let cake cool completely. 
6) Meanwhile, make ganache: Place heavy cream in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer. Place chocolate chips in a heatproof bowl, then pour hot cream over chocolate chips. Let sit 1 minute, then whisk to combine. 
7) Pour ganache over cake and smooth with an offset spatula. Place in refrigerator until set, if desired, about 10 minutes. 
8) Top with raspberries to serve.

Rabbi Dovid S. Polter, Community Chaplain
His Love for You!

If G-d had a refrigerator, your picture would be on it.

If He had a wallet, your picture would be in it.

He sends you flowers every spring. He sends a sunrise every morning.

Face it friends! He’s crazy about you!

He did not promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain.

But He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way. If G-d brings you to it, He will bring you through it.
