Shavuos - the real deal
This is a superb video, which is delivered beautifully by Mrs. Palatnik. She asks the question that has always 'bugged' me as well. And, her conclusions are powerful, meaningful and useful.
Thank you, Mrs. Palatnik, for creating and sharing this tremendously inspiring video insight!

Maintaining the inspiration
Rebbinetzin Palanik, You really delivered on your video.
You hit a home run for the team this time. Every Jew should step back and wonder why we haven't broke the 3333 year cycle of running back to sin after being delivered. Let's get out of the rut move to the next level. Todah Raba

Thank you, Lori
I always love to watch the personal delivery and message of Mrs. Platnik. The Shavuot message particularly was meaningful. So many Jews are unaware that this is a major holiday! So sad. I guess that goes along with the message. Now, if I only knew how to properly pronounce Shavuot - is the stress on the "vu" or the "ot". I have heard it both ways.
