Moved, Touched, and Inspired

I have been moved by this video -- and the life of our Rabbi. I was raised Christian, but I feel deeply connected to Judaism. Thank you for posting this video -- and demonstrating what it is like to live a life of service.

Rabbi Noach does hear you!

After my husband died, I wept for 3 days and 3 nights and could not stop. Then, in the morning he was there, took me in his arms, as he always did (I did not know whether it was dream or rality.) And he said: "Please stop weeping, Motek,I am not far away from you. I can see everything you do, and hear everything you say. - And so, I think, Rabbi Weinberg listened to your words, And maybe he was moved like I was. And happy, that you understood what he told all his life. (One is always moved by love and friendship and being understood totally.)

Spot on!

Reb Yaakov: Thank you for your moving words. Thank you for working with the Rosh Yeshiva to put his beautiful thoughts and words in print in "What the Angel Taught You." Thank you for living in the Rosh Yeshiva's dream, and thank you for continuing to do so long into the future, in good health. I know you will. For him. For us. May he rest in peace, knowing that we are carrying on his legacy.

My deepest condolences

Dear Rabbi , Rabbi Weinberg's family and everyone at Aish, My deepest condolences, I did not know Rabbi Weinberg personally but have been touched by his love through Aish. To think of what he has accomplished and continues to accomplish is so awesome that I can not find the words. Love Paul

Our beautiful Chevre!

Dear Rebbe, The 38 years that I was privliged to study with you and work for Aish is the greatest gift. To be a failure, from the smallest of your students is a most meaningful position. But, it is not just the teaching, the leading and the inspiration. You provided us all with a chevre that are united in seeing what you saw and cherishing the cause you fought for. At this moment, we can all say that we are completely united in our love for you. That is the gift of Chevre. It is another thing that I will be eternally endebted to you for. Reb Yakov, thank you for being one of our chevre and expressing our feelings with such sensitivity and beauty.
