what is the point? seemingly you explain that the point is to have a relationship, & that is when we are something separate, but if the ultimate goal is the ascent, then there's no relationship there, we are 1 with him again, then we return to our question of what is the point? Reply

What an extraordinary Rabbi! Rabbi, what a wonderful discussion on the soul. Though much of what you said I have known, the way you describe it is truly wonderful and thought provoking. Reply

The Soul coming from G-D This was a clear and uplifting presentation.
Free will is magical when we human beings choose "good over evil."
Thank you Rabbi Friedman. Reply

To Life ! Wisdom doesn't come with Youth!
Understanding will come with tears.
Success is doing G-ds will.
Mercy before Justice.
The value of Life is in its potential to do good.

Enjoy Life!
