It is early morning and I couldn't sleep so I was looking at various articles on my iPhone and found your lecture/discussion. Thank G-d. You are such a gifted teacher. The time flew by and I so look forward to finding others by you.
I am a widow of 2+ years and felt more solace today than previously. I wish I lived closer to where you teach but if this is the only lesson that I have the privilege to share then it is a blessing that will stay with me for a very long time. Thank you so much. Reply

Hope to hear much more from you in the future.
Thank you Shifra, Reply
