Thanks, Rabbi Altein! Great video by a righteous rabbi. Rabbi Altein and his wife, Chani, run Chabad of Pittsburgh with its Sabbath and Holiday Learners' Minyans and other programs to help Pittsburgh Jews like me learn about relating to G-d. I'm going to watch this more than once to enhance my understanding, and recommend it to people who might be interested. I love the title, too. Hey Rabbi Altein, I knew you appreciated evolution! :) Speaking of biology / zoology, the Rabbi calls Leviathan a fish, but I thought it was a mamal; indeed, in modern Hebrew, the word means "whale." Has the meaning changed since Biblical times? Reply

Gratitude As a Gentile, the Holy Spirit has definitively been guiding me to revere and study all Hebraic influences. Thank you Yisroel Altein for your teachings which help me get closer to our Father and His commandments and wisdom that have been given to the Jewish people for centuries... Reply
