Dear Rabbi,

I was impressed how you physically resembles your mother - God rest her soul in a good place.
Again my most sincere gratitude to you and Chabad.
I wrote to report a fact: during the studies came to realize that I have some distrust of God.
I stopped studying the Tehillim, Tanya, and Mishneh Torah. I continued the Chumash, every day. In fact, it was the Chumash that held me up.
After all, I thank God for had reveal me this situation that time. Now I can deal with it in a conscious way - instead remain veiled. I thank God for your words, I asked for an answer through your answer and you wrote: "a complex experience."
It is an overwhelming experience, I felt a lot of fear and shame. The hardest part was to deal with the shame.
Today, I realize I'm being faced with this problem for many years. What really helped me was text The Rebbe on the Holocaust: "was not how we do or do not understand ... but what we do about it." And I decided to trust in God.
The interesting thing is that now I have more tranquility.
Eternally thankful, Reply
