Wealth Must be Used Wisely I read a quote a few months ago that hit me hard and fast. Even though I'm getting closer to 50 years, I can still learn so much. Here is what the quote said: Some people are so poor all they have is money. It reminded me of those I have met who posess plenty of very attractive material things. . They lack so much. Some of them lack values. One family was hurtful by teaching their extreme lack of midos with my children. G-d forbid.
It shouldn't happen again, to anyone. Reply

Hebrew Text PLEASE I teach Hebrew speaking women and putting together a text sheet is really difficult. My dream is that the original text would be offered as an option with classes like these.
Yashar Koach for the classes.
The content is rich, deep and relevant.

G*D wants us to be properous and do g*dly works. Quite true ! Thank you very much for this video. It triggers something in the mind.

True, God wants us to be prosperous, and we should do godly works by using our prosperity.

A request if possible : I learned that Dr. Aaron Zwergbaum passed away in 2010. He was in Mauritius during the 2nd World war. I was then a baby. I knew him many years later when I was grown us. I wish to have a photo of him. 127 of his co-Detainees rest in peace in our St Martin Cemetery, a sad, but beautiful place for remembrance. I like to visit the place from time to time. Reply

You are such a beautiful woman - I'm just in awe at how you tell such a rich story with so much grace. I'm not Jewish - but you must be an amazing example for your community. God bless you! Reply

wealth as an idol? I am still pondering over this video. Wealth is a G-dly thing I always believed. When does it become dangerous to us in being an idol to worship? Reply
