I became a father at the age of 21. I am now 25  and the father of three spectacular children. Every day my children teach me something new.

In the Jewish tradition, one’s relationship with God is often compared to the relationship between a father and son. As a son, I always felt that this comparison just didn’t fit. As a father, I’m starting to get it.

This idea of being “God” in this analogy can sound highly egotistical, but it’s not. Fatherhood, with the right perspective, allows us a glimpse of what God sees, and how God feels about us, his children.
