First Commandment What I understood of this lesson was great, but forgive me for saying this, when you would start saying things in Hebrew, I would get lost on what you were saying.

This is the first time I heard you do this, which is fine for those who know the language. But it was alittle hard for me as you spoke in Hebrew so fast and went right into the English that I lost some of the meaning of what you were saying. But I did catch some of it. The meaning that is.

Still love your teachings though. G-d's blessings be upon you Rabbi. Reply
