People In Prison Thank you... Reply

People and Prisons I have been in almost 300 prisons in the last 15 years to help people regain hope, and I believe in helping people in prison. I have seen men in Kenya who were comdemed to death have new hope that they put down the shame of their life and raise a banner of Honor to G-d and to their families I have also been in Israel, and I was in the children's hospital and I know that the soldiers come to the hospital when they are off their duty. Hearing this compassionate view on helping others through a Jewish perspective for people in prison really encourages me, thank you! Reply

Who's paying for their crime? After listening to Rabbi Friedman, DO SOMETHING POSITIVE!
Become a Pen Pal to a Prisoner in a prison in America.
I have been a pen pal for over six years and lerarnt an enormous amount about life and I am in my middle seventies and British by birth.
To do nothingis NOT an option.
Contact the Aleph Institute Pen Pal Organiser in New Zealand and find a match and then change two lives, the pen pal and your own.
He who saves one life saves the world. Saving two means recreating ones own perspectives and sense of appreciation of life.
DOING NOTHING IS NOT AN OPTION. Reply
