I love your videos. Uplifting, entertaining and educational. A way that motivates me to change. And i asked myself the same thing as the gentleman. Thank you for being a scholar and a gentleman. Reply

Cultivate confidence before you criticize. That makes sense to me. One doesn't see many successful people who aren't confident as well. Reply

I really loved this explanation of Emor and Daver (sp?) - thank you for this beautiful message. Shabbat Shalom! Reply

Impressively positive and educational. I can't thank your teaching enough, specially in this fun and "both sides of the coin" manner. Reply

Wonderful words from the Rebbe, in a way that's so relatable! I love your shiurim Rabbi Chighel. I look forward to doing you course. The first way is definitely the British way 😪 I tried to do this with my girls, but didn't always succeed, especially after I was widowed. (No smacking!) However, they are beautiful girls who love Hashem and respect me. I hope they become more observant as they get older, and I'm looking forward to einiklach! A gut Shabbes to you and your mishpoche.
