Rabbi Aaron Raskin once said I will never forget this: "On Rosh Hashanah we say to Gd 'I love you'. On Yom Kippur Gd says to us 'I love you, too' " Reply

The class is so comforting. Since I decided to convert according to Halachah in Israel, it has been 4 years. I am already 44 years old and single. There were ups and downs. But I will not give up because of "Tainug." I feel in the core of my soul that I am with G-d, I can bring the light of G-d into my corner of universe, and G-d loves me. I will surely ask G-d to coronate over my life. It was such a wonderful class. Reply

Louis XIV The Miracle of Jewish History
By Benjamin Blech
Rabbi Blech is Associate Professor of the Talmud at Yeshiva University and the author of Eyewitness to Jewish History (Wiley, 2007), from which the following article is excerpted..

Over three hundred years ago King Louis XIV of France asked Blaise Pascal, the great French philosopher of his day, to give him proof of the existence of miracles. Without a moment's hesitation, Pascal answered, "Why, the Jews, your Majesty-the Jews."

We don't have to speculate what Pascal meant when he gave this answer, because he took the trouble to spell it out. In his masterwork, Pensees, he explained that the fact that the Jewish people had survived until the seventeenth century-the time period in which he lived-was nothing short of a supernatural phenomenon.
