Your talk was so magnificent. It gave me a richer and deeper understanding of Rosh Hashanah than Ihave ever had. I feel that I was guided to listen to you so that i could better understand the magnificence of malchut and the love G-d has for us. Thank you so much. Reply

I was so inspired and blessed by the Rebee's explanation of Rosh Hashanah televised in 1980 and now shown as a rerun for Rosh Hashanah 2017. The Rebee was truly a guiding light to both the Jewish and non
Jewish world, just watching him on JTA overpowered me and filled my eyes with tears. Blessings and Shalom to the entire team of JTA for putting this awesome production into video for all of us as G d fearing Jews to view. May all my Jewish friends and acquaintances have a happy an blessed Rosh Hashanah. Reply

An appreciation Thank you, I cannot thank you enough, Rabbi, for your commentary and am now able to start Rosh Shannah, albeit alone in a small village in Italy, I no longer feel alone.
