Without background This was a beautiful and inspiring talk, thank you. I am married to a Jewish man and a convert and so I don't have the background that makes a Jew, a Jew. Does this mean I'm not part of the Jewish family? There are many perspectives on this. I have a European background that of course included wartime struggles but my family never suffered the tragedies and persecutions of the Jewish people. I share in the pain, and in the joys, of my husband's strong Jewish identity, but can I really ever understand? This is what I struggle with...Thank you however for adding to my education and inspiring me. Reply

Women Of The Bible Your lecture has been very inspiring Chana Weisberg. In spite of what a man's comment here which is so denigrating. There are many good men out there. As well there are many good women. In this case you happen to be speaking of a special case. In my case was not so wonderful with a dysfunctional father. But, your words to-day are very, very inspiring. It helped me look at negativity in life on a different perspective. Thank you, you are a wonderful teacher. Baruch Hashem! Reply

You bring tears to my eyes! You are anointed to teach. What insight you bring out in the Jewish covenant people of G-d. May G-d continue to use you as you teach men and women. You were created for such a time as this. You are appreciated and loved.

G-d bless you dear Chana Weisberg! You touch our hearts as you teach with goodness of G-d while facing life's hurts. I can be grateful for my past hurts and pains. I'm a better man because of kind gentle women in my life. My mother, sisters, my wife and grand daughters together make men complete.

Thank you and G-d bless you Chana Weisberg.

I am Stan Soboleski and I appreciate women more because of Chana. Reply

Wisdom and messages for the Downtrodden I was blown away by the ease of your ability to weave stories from Torah and connect to our lives now.

I was envisioning your lovely voice speaking to a bunch of teens who are or have been suicidal, or are depressed.

As human beings, we all need the reminder that we are all children of G-d and that despite what others think, say, or do, we have to be patient and keep turning to G-d to keep us on our own unique path in life. Reply

RE; Not all fathers are the same No offence, but what she is just trying to point out is......no Fathers can replace a Mom, I love my dad, but he can't be my mom:) Reply

Inspirational There is no doubt that you are a very inspirational speaker/author to very many, but I must say you are quite the inspiration to me. I feel good watching your videos and do feel closer to G-d as a result! I plan to read all of your books. Reply

Inspire Wisdom is what you do. I have forwarded a couple of your video's to friends in hopes of passing along some of your thoughts & ideas on Torah. Thank you for being a voice to Jewish women. Reply

Not all fathers are the same I'm a father and insulted by your father flunking mommies school. It's hard to be a father,husband,son, brother in these times. A mans role is not what it was. I gave my children their irst baths. I changed as many diapers as my wife. I made homemade baby food for my children.You probably didn't mean to insult fathers but not all fathers are like the ones the little girl in your story has. Reply
