Seasons I was having a "dark" morning and after feeding the birds and breakfast, I decided to look for inspiration. I stumbled upon Rabbi Freeman's "Seasons" video. It was as though I was led to this video because it turned my dark morning into a hopeful morning. Thank you and please keep supplying us with inspiration. Reply

Beautiful Clip Rabbi Freeman, you don’t cease to amaze me!!! Is this clip not purely genuus?! Are not all of Rabbi Freemans works simply genius? Does he not take the most lofty and most difficult to grasp concepts and present them to us on a golden platter? Thank you Rabbi Freeman and Reply

Perfectly splendid! Thank you Rabbi Freeman, Heinz Koloska and Richard Samuels for the ingredients to create such a beautiful greeting for us!

Even if you don't celebrate the holiday, the spirit of the season lives.
Light small candles in your heart every day instead of cursing the darkness, and in time that light can fill the world.
Just try. That's all I ask, just try. Reply

Seasons A newish person in my group sent me the video of Seasons. My son David died of cancer one month ago. this video depicts very well this last year of david's life and is now heading into the winter. The man walking down the tunnel towards the light is the splitting image of my son.
i am going to link this page to the first page of my son's many pages of memorials done in his memory by me, his wife, and members on my online group, who's goal it is to build pages of memories for people who have lost their pets. i tried to email previously but did not know i could not put html language here. i sent the link to david's first page so you could see our work. i sincerely hope you have no objactions to me putting your link their. if you do of course i will remove it. there are 300 people in my group i started years ago. your video will be seen all over the world so i hope you permit it to stay.
sincerely, reverend Donald Lee Dade

On a journey through loss this is a reflection of the richness of light in the depth of darkness. Reply

Seasons_Chanukah card Dear Rabbi Freeman!
We were blown away by your creation. It goes right to the neshama (and to the tear ducts), and i felt that your card would be a very powerful message to my eclectic group of relatives & friends.

In the 1st 24 hours we received two responses - a cousin in NYC and a friend in Haifa - The cousin thanked us for sending the perfect antedote to the very difficult week they are having; the friend thanked us for the "beautiful & deeply meaningful" card & hoped they could download the art for constant running & to share with their wide circle of friends.

The Rebbe is kvelling!! Thank you!!!!

Shabbat Shalom & Chanukah Sameach!!! Reply
