"t was a life-changing and perspective-changing year," Jacobs reveals. He learned about being thankful, about obeying the Sabbath and about how "life isn't just a series of rights; it's a series of responsibilities to your elders or your neighbors.
"I'm not Gandhi or Angelina Jolie," cautions Jacobs, "but an interesting insight I had was just how much behavior affects your belief and how behavior can shape who you are. I started acting like a good person by not gossiping and coveting, and I became, I think, a slightly better person." Hear the whole story tonight at the Tattered Cover LoDo, 1628 16th Street, when Jacobs signs his book at 7:30 p.m.; visit www.tatteredcover.com or call 303-436-1070.
