Thank you Rabbi Just bought my set but the spice of joy has been missing for years from this mitzvah for me. This was very important for me to see for I have not been really doing this mitzvah in simcha. So simple but so important and so missing. Many have forgotten how to smile. I have been thinking about this for days.
Will shake with a smile this year G-d willing.
Thanks. Reply
