Great meeting you in Edmonton
I was fortunate to hear your message about donating a kidney from you in person in Edmonton. I was also able to listen to your CD's as I prepared for Rosh HaShanah. Sometimes the spiritual side of preperation for Rosh Hashanah gets lost for me in the cooking an preperation craziness. Thank you for helping me keep the spirituality in the Rosh Hashana preperations. May you and your famiy have a happy, healthy and sweet New Year.

As usual I don't know what to say to your perspective at the same time, I am grateful to hear what your take on things are you definitely have the Memory of the Sages in you.
My year has been one of strife and struggling against antisemitism from Atheists and Christians.
That you for this message.
HaShem Bless You.
Have a Great Rosh Hashana.

This year my morning glories, my sky blue morning glories, grew from seed and they are climbers. I do deeply believe we're all climbing Jacob's ladder and that there is an inbuilt learning curve for us all, in the travails and travels we all endure and celebrate in passing through life, this for each of us most incredible journey.
Some fall by the wayside, and we are witness to many things too terrible in life, that turn us inwards, and in this way, also, we reach for some kind of answers. It's the human condition and it's the humane condition.
Thank you for your elucidation about names. And the beauty of all of this is such we feel it, in so many ways.
Let me be clear however, about one thing, and that is, to be thankful to God is not just the Jewish prerogative, and it is also the heart felt spiritual dimension of those who pray and praise. I think we need to be humble about saying this, and my Jew Wish is that we all recognize a common humanity in how we treat each other so we can move to this inchoate notion, world peace.
Shana Tova, Aish!

Thank you for reminding us of the reality in our lives. It is that tension which is necessary for us to really grow and learn to trust in Hashem.

Thanks again, Lori! It's important for all of us to remember that G-d is NOT about all or nothing. While many good times don't last, neither do the bad. And, we should not discount/ignore the good in our life as an automatic given. It's all a matter of divine providence. L'shana tova!
