A Beautiful Dvar Torah told beautifully
Gevaldig! Short but wonderfully inspirational. A Beautiful Dvar Torah told beautifully. May you merit to continue giving such Divrei Torah and that they be understood properly by your viewers/listeners.A Happy and Healthy New Year to you.

good stuff except
to scoff at those nations who did not accept the Torah is disrespectful and a downward level. Lucky us that they passed on it, that's all need be said. Why weren't we first in line to begin with ?

I don't know, Mrs. Palatnik, you just leave me speechless. What can one say after hearing your delivery of that searing and home-hitting message? Love is feeling; love is giving; and love is deferring to someone's wishes. What could be more straightforward? Maybe I'd do best to just remain silent and leave it at that. That's precisely what I'd do if I could. But how can I? So here's what I say. Love is also having fear. Only after I have managed to be truly in awe of Him and of His command, only after I have contemplated the dreadfulness of interdicting of His fearsome word, only then can I truly hope to love Him with all of my being. I can't really Love the A-lmighty unless I have first gained some sense of how frightfully awsome He is. And this is immeasurable. So all I can hope to do is tremble before Him as best I am able. I might then begin to work on love. A k'siva v'chasima tova,YP

Lori, it was as if God himself was standing behind you.. .
... talking to us. And as that is impossible, he layed His words into your mouth.

Lori is filled with soul. I love watching her and she speaks from the heart. I wish she would not go into the dietary restrictions as she does. Why? Because I love with all my heart and soul and I do believe I am beloved. All the same I follow different rules and I don't perceive that God does not love me, nor that my dietary habits are prohibited by the same God, who made all of us. I take serious issue with this.

I Love Lori!
The Rebbetzin Lori Palatnik is all that I want to be she has achieved a level of spirituality which is exactly where I would love to be and have not been able to get on the main road like she has! She is a shining example of what a proud Jewish woman is! I also get tingles up my spine when I listen to her speak, she "Gets It" Judaism has to be proud to have a Rebbetzin like her! She is an inspiration not only to women but to men as well and our spiritualizm as a whole!Bravo Lori, I look forward to all your blogs!You bring out my Judaism in me! Thank You! Gayle
