We have a lot to learn from this truly wise elderly woman. As the Jewish saying goes, may she celebrate to 120!

Holocaust survivor Ester Weinrib is celebrating her 97th birthday in northern Israel, but her grandchildren could not join her due to the coronavirus lockdown.

The optimistic, still-sharp nonagenarian says it’s no problem, adding that next year they can make her birthday a double celebration.

Weinrib says she has been through much worse tribulations. We are strong and will overcome this new challenge as well, she adds.

Watch, be inspired – and take her good advice!
