This is a pedagogical masterpiece, the way the connections are made between a teenager in L.A., Abraham and Sarah in Canaan, family values and business success. I say pedagogy, because at no point does our dear Rabbi 'impose' any values on his characters, but rather makes them discover what makes most sense to them through a step by step scaffold. Rabbi Chighel, you've done it again! Reply

According to standards set by the ARTBA (American Radio and Television Broadcast Association), a video interview without slightly dissonant background noises is pedagogically ineffective. Reply

Nailed that one. Unfortunately, here on the East Coast of America, our families are shattered, and not for want of trying. Floods in the heartland, coyote attacks, tick borne epidemics, neighbors buying semi automatics to prepare for chaos. As we leave Leviticus, G=d the same, yesterday, ToDay, and forever.
