Simcha Bart for March 10, 2016

Sometimes our belief in G-d is so deeply hidden, that we don't recognize it. For example, an infant is crying because it is hungry. Can a week old infant really know what hunger is? Obviously not. Yet the cry is because deep down it is yearning for something. Similarly, a Jew is yearning for something and - sometimes because of lack of education - doesn't know what it is they are yearning for. Their yearning tells them they are Jewish. What does that truly mean? The first Jew was Abraham who taught he world the belief in the One G-d. Whether one realizes it or not - by identifying as Jewish - they are proclaiming to the world the idea that there is only One G-d Who cannot be seen, but watches over all. Reply

Thank you! I have been invited to share Rosh Hashanah tomorrow for the first time ever with neighbors. This has been the best learning experience for me. Reply

I've watched this at least 5 or 6 times. These children are absolutely wonderful. They break me up with laughter. At the same time, this is good for me as I've been studying Judaism for almost a year. It's light hearted and fun learning for me. This is great! Reply

When the boy shows the kipa and says that it is to remember Hashem Is above us... just boys wear it, because girls dont need cause probably they remember that! Yessss! Reply
