I have no words Rabbi Bistritzky I can not come up with words. I can only explain the feelings I get when I can not stop some reactions to the words of reason and Thank you's. It feels like an arrow on fire that had been launched by angles from above. The arrow hits my defenses and pierce throw to my heart. Then I grab the arrow only to know I can not pull it from my chest. Me the Warrior of G-d's love and truth reduced to a human being kneeling and crying. Look everyone the oral word can turn a brave man into sobing little girl. That is the power that G-d gave to you Rabbi. You are the arrow for which G-d and the heavens above remind us of what we are! and where we came from. That arrow a direct connection to understanding and learning of the Torah. This is why G-d has absolute faith in our worth and redemption. Please all Rabbi's in world meditate on how important you really are and then we will follow. For you will see even right now the arrow of the Torah teaching the animal of the past. Reply
