Finding faith Thank you Rabbi Schochet. Your words have helped to ease this grieving heart, recently subject to profound trajedy here in Texas. May Chabad continue to spread Torah through you and all the other special emissaries. I can better see G-d in my life and my families lives because of the daily messages Chabad shares. Reply
