Rabbi Friedman,
I am so very thankful to you. I had no idea who exactly God was. Till now my assumption of who God is was incorrect and logically is was not making sense to me. You have steered me in the right direction in understanding God and his nature. Till now the hakma and the bina were there but the das was missing in my connection to God.
Thankyou
