This video is cool!

This makes me proud too. How many know that the American Constitution was directly based on the "Old Testament" ? No wonder America became the greatest nation on earth.

Doesn't this make you proud, yet humble?

Torah has proven to be the best University

B´H
The more I read the Torah, the more I study the Torah, the more I discuss and get into debates about the Torah and its history and teachings and laws, the more I realize it is the best University a person can attend. The laws os phisics, of linguistics, of nature in general are measured by science through observation and analizis. Science can analyze the Torah but it cannot apprehend all the layers and dimensions of the Torah because the Torah is revealed by a different technique of studying and reading.

I learnt more with Tzvi Klor in a year in Jerusalem than in 20 years at university because there´s nothing above or below heaven or the earth that has not been made by Hashem.

The fact we do not understand why we suffer or why we get sick or something bad happens to a loved one DOES NOT mean there is no G´d.

Hashem is not there to be seen, to explain things or to serve us. We serve the King of the Universe, not the opposite. The King of Universe gave us the Torah (to say it is a code of laws or a kind of constitution to be followed is to say the least) and when our way diverge from it we either find ourselves in a dead end.

No matters what others say or do, Hashem is our Lord, Hashem is One, our King

Science cannot discuss what it cannot see. Hashem is also feeling, perceiving, apprehending and more than all knowledge.

Hashem, Baruch Shemo, Bless Israel and all its allies

What an inspiring message! Of course the Bible is the greatest book, bar none. It would be difficult to name any human composition which has had so extended and so lasting an affect. Everyone knows that it was translated into the language of every country. It worked nothing short of miracles. Like the Torah says, As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler; solitude will not be solitude, poverty will not be poverty, nor weakness weakness. Reality is the leading cause of stress among those in touch with it. Finally, I quote Henry Adams who was the son and grandson of Presidents (the Adam's -- John and John Quincy), who said that "the Jews are the finest exponents of all virtue, honor and valor."

WillyBasic rocks!!!

So many encouraging responses! Willy Basic said it as well as anyone. But all the comments (the POSITIVE one's) are really great. Be proud that your a Jew. We love all people of every religion. But this makes me proud that I'm Jewish.
