About choosing a Rabbi...
As always, you provide a very clear path for us to take, to help us find ‘truth’; thank you.
Your insights are seemingly always on target, and you get there very quickly, as with General Petraeus this week. I always want to stand up and applaud after I read something you wrote, or watched an “almost live” commentary.
Just know that you are so very important to many of us; and, you are appreciated!

'He with the most advisors wins, he with the fewest advisors loses'.
I don't know where I read that, but I think it is a true statement.
Most of us think to go it alone. What a mistake that is!

Baruch Hashem I found my Rabbi!
I must have the best Rav & Rebbetzin in Nort America. Through ups & downs on a journey that started 12 years ago, I thank Hashem for sending me these wonderful, giving, loving human beings, who have talked the talk, but also WALKED THE WALK!

To Ana and Miriam
Ana- there are rabbis that you can call and its fairly easy to get their number. You can call the shul or someone else in their community and just call them. Ask around. Its def. better to make a connection though first if your asking them about something personal and in regards to an important decision. To Miriam, if you have a legitimate question, and especially if its in regards to an important decision then it doesn't waste their time. If their busy, they'll tell you and call you back or have you call them back,

To ana (1): I suggest you go online and look for a synagogue in your area. Check out that schedule of services and make sure to attend a few services on Shabbat. After Shabbat morning services have concluded, introduce yourself to the rabbi as well as to other members of the congregation. You may need to try out more than one Shul, but it will be well worth the effort. Good luck!

Question for Lori
My problem with asking rabbis is that I feel bad wasting their time (most of them are short on it). How do you deal with that issue?

Ask the Rabbi
I don't have a rabbi anywhere near me, so have been thinking of Ask the Rabbi here on Aish with a concern or decision I've been thnking about for a long time. It's about law and I can't find an answer in the archives. ~ ~ ~ Also, a personal/friends question that I would like an objective opinion to see a clearer path. Lori, your video message gives me the push I need to ask for help. Thanks.

How do I find a Rabbi?
I don't know how to find a Rabbi, I don't know if one is good, and I'm a single young female, and I don't know how to find someone. I don't have friends with rabbis.
