Beautiful Messages I am not a person of faith. I had not a strong family to guide me. I had a family broken by drink and violence. Now, a 33 year old married woman, I seek faith. I seek a sense of spirit and the divine. My new employer is a faithful Jew, and in 1 day of working with him, I have been inspired to learn more about the Jewish faith. This website has ensnared me and touched me. I thank you for putting together this beautiful website, full of loving knowledge, to share with all who wish to embrace it. Thank you. Reply

Sukkot: Less is More i remember watching a chumash class online with Rabbi Gordon and he was doing his class live in a Sukkah. The cup always looks full even when its empty, great message. Reply

God never ceases to amaze This was so beautiful. I have only foung chadad just a week or so ago. I also recently became a partner. With every video, audio or column that I read, I am so enlightened and lifted. The depth at which your understanding and relevance is amazing. I praise G-d for His great love towards us. Thank you all for changing my life, Reply
