Just the sight of Mr. Gluckin, in his neat button-down shirt and kippah, waving his hands wildly imitating "purple"...hee-hee-hee. ,-) Excellent advice. God bless!

Rules allow collaboration
As a community we rely on the Torah to give us the structure necessary to be a living flourishing communal organism.
Choir, dance ensemble, Torah class,
student/teacher, chavrusa ,family: We all need rules. This is the first time I have ever really like the sound of purple. But, green I have solid!
Many thanks for a light hearted look at a serious concept.

True ideas in exciting presentation...
This Rabbi seems kind of whacky and exctiing in a good way. The point that rules help make the game work is true and the guitar comparison was great. Let hear some guitar after the holidays...

This guy has to be Aish’s best-kept secret. Funny. Quick. Extremely powerful message. WOW. You should plaster him all over your site and please post more stuff.

wow! so smoothly, with a great comparison, you changed Torah's regulations from being burdensome to "freeing". (Theres comparisons to a wing, he thinks 'agh these wings are too heavy without them i can fly higher' No they make him fly! or the electric toy car, 'agh i have this heavy battery slowing me down' No its making you go...Torah's 'rules' are what keep us flying up!!!
