For me, to be totally honest, it is the factual information of Rachel's burial that is the most vexsome. She was not a Ruth; it's a bit like a husband proclaiming" I just didn't have a budget" for Rachel's burial plot....

Understanding Rachel's sacrifice is more than all these analogies, i think. What is it to 'shore up your treasures in the Heavens' ... and how far can we go in renouncing the ego ... to arrive in a truly different place spiritually or geographically? Reply

Dear Goldie Plotkin, your message is so helpful. There is only one thing I would like to say : keep your voice steady, less emotion, so I could receive better. Thanks. Reply
