Thank you very much Rabbi Gordon, Zecher tzaddik lebracha
Listening to you, is knowing you are still with us, in your delightful and unique way of sharing Torah and even though, I never got to meet you in person, I always felt you were connected to me and to each and every one who listened to your insights and clever and sometimes humorous way of speaking that always made me want to hear more (and also because I understood your jokes, being from the East Coast, NY and also, as a transplant to the West Coast, first LA, then northern CA and now San Diego).
Baruch Hashem that we can continue to listen to you on the Internet and feel your presence in our lives. May your neshama have an aliyah and rest in Gan Eden with all the tzaddikim Reply

Thank You... 6 days we toil in other people's uncertainty; 1 day G-d rests and we relax in certainty. This is what I needed. Reply
