If I win the lottery.....

and Hashem grants me the gift of another year of life, I would like to use it to mother my little girl. She needs me and I can't think of anything that would be more important. Please!

Very good points, Rabbi

I really enjoy your video blog, Rabbi. You make some very good points, and this being my first real year of celebrating the Feasts, I do stop and ask myself serious questions during this 40 day Season of Repentance. I believe that HaShem gives us all a chance and that He shows us where we need to work on ourselves. I find it amazing that this year seemed to go by so fast, and I can't wait until the next Torah cycle! Anita

I already won the Lottery

Hi, I love your commentary for today. I honestly know I have already won the lottery, because I have love, and I have had so many beautiful sunsets already. In terms of "the money", in case I win ever a large paper amount, I have a long list called my Tzedakah list on my computer, and that's where the bulk of it goes and I would just love to disperse this money to the many charities I adore. I am thinking how many of us have already won the lottery, because we have another day, another opportunity to celebrate each other and kiss the earth beneath our feet. Thank you!
