Communication First of all I loved this presentation it referred back to Torah Bereshit and the Creation which I love Torah so much I could cry. I wish I was not 59 yrs old so I could start my life over since I only began to read Torah 5 yrs ago and just began to learn Hebrew. If I had known these things when I was young I would have had such a different life and been kinder to everyone and they could have heard lovingkindness from me which is so healing. Thank you and please please do not leave me out of this waterfall of wisdom. Reply

Chassidus A Jew came to the Tzemach Tzedek and asked him what he should study if he had only a half hour a day to study Torah. Tzemach Tzedek said "Chassidus." It is truly right. You said Chabad thinks about love for fellow when s/he talks with her/his fellow. With that formula, I was able to improve not only communication, but also intellectual and emotional attitude toward person I saw or think about. I started to think the person's well being when I talks. This is a major improvement for me. It was always good to read and listen to Chabad lecture. I was right.
