Comedian and rabbi Bob Alper offers ‘the rest of the story’ on the subject of judging others.
“I enjoy flying,” says Rabbi Bob Alper in a recent feature in Read The Spirit. “It’s not the ride so much as the people,” he continues. “I work at home, alone, much of the time, and yet I enjoy schmoozing. Flying provides me with an opportunity, most of the time.”
Alper calls airports, “great melting pots of humanity.” And in passing through airports and boarding planes, he says, “I realize how we constantly judge one another, how we constantly, and, I guess, naturally, draw instant conclusions about the people we see and the people we meet.”
His stories about three people have the same punchline … don’t be so quick with your evaluation of others because, “You just never know.”
