The Dawning Of A New Day

There once was a Rabbi who was asked by his students, “Teacher, how would one determine the hour when night ends and day begins?”

One student suggested, “Is it when one can distinguish a sheep from a dog in the distance?”

“No,” said the Rabbi.

A second student ventured, “Is it when one can distinguish a date tree from a fig tree in the distance?”

“No,” said the Rabbi.

“Please tell us the answer,” the students begged.

“It is when you can look into the face of a stranger and see your sister or brother,” said the Rabbi. “Until then, the night is still with us.”
