As I cook dinner and fry potato latkas, I am listening to your teachings and I know that the Torah is truly the connection to God. Its such a wonderful thing that only the Jews seems to understand the intensity of that connection. How wonderful is that!. The very mitzvah that the world even knows about these stories is unfathomable, yet only because of the jews connection can the world even begin to understand.. Yet it happened. The world is a better place because of it. However, this generation seems to have strayed. This knowledge and joy is here however, and all we have to do is read, learn and live. Through living we can use our physicality to make the Torah alive. Only then can we bring happiness to this dark world. Thank you Rabbi, for sharing your knowledge and understanding and let us pray that we can spread this information among the masses, because the world suffers in darkness and that is because this world works hard to hide this wonderul understanding and connections.

This is an absolutely wonderful shiur. Thank you Rabbi Raskin and chabad.org. Can I ask what the source of this is? I would like to learn inside as well. Wishing all much joy in the holidays to come.
