Re: Shimon Waronker B'H
I wish to recommend we help this video go viral. Shimon is a good friend and as a mental health worker he occasionally mentors me on approaches in education which are universally applicable to the field I am in.
Shimon is not just an inspirational speaker. He lives his teachings humbly admitting that he can make mistakes and even more humble in acknowledging his talents are being channeled to him from Hashem in a manner that is so easy to comprehend with not a whiff of self-agrandizement. Reply
