For millennia, the Jewish people have been telling stories of Elijah the Prophet, as the bearer of hope, good tidings, and Divine intervention in moments of crisis. Meeting Elijah is a collection of true stories of contemporary meetings with Elijah. In a moment of need, a stranger appears, offers help, and then disappears, sometimes as if by magic. These stories, heard directly from the people involved, or from a close family or relative, point to the living presence of Elijah among us, or to a “spark” of Elijah that moves in and through ordinary people, leading them to do remarkable things. The stories are surprising, inexplicable, and inspiring. They remind us that the world is a mysterious place and that God’s deliverance can occur in the blink of an eye.
