As I sit
As I sit and stare out of my one room home I have the hope that my oasis ,my rest will appear .I see all Jews sitting at the calm beaches of the sands of time on Shabbat. The word relaxing now has more meaning than ever, as when the words can come to peace of the Mitzvahs we have done.When the connection to HaShem is so clear yet we are not perplexed.When there it is no longer barriers between are actions and our thoughts which are pure kindness on this day.We are together we are one and HaShem has much joy that we now understand what is the past .Before we had scares of our own doing but healing is our strength. Problems in our lives help shape the good merit for our future.The waters are still and clean as well as our souls are pure and bright .I will no longer am just me,I will be what HaShem made me to be body and soul.

Thank you for this spiritual bread. How wonderful and easy to learn when one opens the eyes of the spirit. This is eternal wisdom to transform lives not only mine but others. Thank you again.

Shabbat an Island in Time
What a stimulating lecture. Such a dignified Rabbi. Rabbi Shlomo was instrumental in bringing a young man to Torah and Mitzvot. My daughter who has been religious all her life is now married to that young man.
