Economic Crisis and Family Planning Thank you for sharing with us the Practical Parshah. I am learning so much by listening to your teachings here on I am not Jewish...but Torah is our way of life. I only wish I had learned earlier about Torah, the mitzvahs, and festivals of Hashem. May He bless you as you continue to bring these teachings to us all. Reply
