Walking with G-d Todah rabah for such an inspiring shiur. Especially the story from Chofetz Chaim is very nice. Reply

3 days without sleep Apparently it has been scientifically proven that people can stay awake for longer than 3 days without any sleep. So it seems that that statement of our sages must not be absolute, but is rather a general statement which applies to the vast majority of people. Reply

The 10 commandments series Rabbi Raskin's class is always uplifting.
I appreciate the the deeper understanding of the 10 commandments gained from this
class and look forward to watching the rest of the classes from this series. Reply
