I'm thankful for every appearance of "Lori. Almost Live." I get a blessing with each listen. I live in a non-Jewish world so each time I can read at AISH and hear from Lori I get a blessing. Thank you!

captioning of Lori Almost Live
Mazel tov on captioning Lori Almost Live. I am one of the many Jewish deaf individuals who lives in the metro Washington D.C. area and the nation, who rely on captioning. Having access to Jewish information makes a world of a difference. It keeps me Jewishly connected. Keep up the great work and keep this project funded.

You've given me a better understanding of the Torah
When I first went onto Aish it was out of curiousity, and now I am new at studying the Torah. I thought that after I gave up on Catholicism long ago that I was only going to have a general spiritual belief in god rather than adopting another religion. But the more that I have learned about Judaism and the Torah, the more I realize that it is a practical religion of life, and it corresponds more with who I am at my core level and what I am looking for. Thank you Lori and the other religious teachers at Aish.com for assisting in my spiritual enlightenment.

Torah is Life
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, Lori. Where would any of us be without Torah. Thanks so much for reminding us. Shanah Tova!

If it's not practical, it's not Torah
What you said is so very true. Thank you very much Lori. I hope more people will read the Torah and apply it to their lives. How rich it will be. G-d's wisdom for our everyday lives. And, thank Him in faith.

Lori, I am so blessed by your words of wisdom about Torah, the book of wisdom. I also appreciate that your videos are captioned so that those with hearing impairments can enjoy what you have to say.

Thanks, Lori for reminding me to look at Torah as a practical application for my life. I've been trying hard to learn as much as I can (not coming from an observant background) and found your words very encouraging.
