Chizuk. It’s hard to define. Easy to spot. And vital to experience.
- A carpenter who fixed broken shelves — and broken hearts — gives his widow one last amazing gift. And we… get chizuk from the story.
- A rosh yeshiva takes precious time to climb a ladder and comfort a group of crying children. And we… get chizuk from the story.
- A young boy breaks through the guards to get a private audience with Britain’s King. And we… get chizuk from still another extraordinary, true story.
Rooted in the word "strong," to "get chizuk" is to get an indescribable combination of inspiration, strength, encouragement, and comfort. Chizuk lights the road when we’re traveling in darkness, gives a gentle push when we’re mired in doubts or sadness.
