Nothing is random. G-d controls every single thing and everything has a reason. It is clearly a message from G-d. You saw Rav Weinberg in a dream and than thats the first email you open! DONT skip the message. Recognize that this is a message to you- Jordana and embrace it. Ask, learn and keep growing! And please please dont just forget about this experience!

I dreamt of this Rabbi Last night!
I am in complete shock! This morning I woke and as I made my morning cup of coffee I was thinking about the many dreams I dreamt and then I got a flash of this man in my head and I remembered seeing his face in my dream and of my talking to him but it was real brief. Odd that I even remembered his face. I thought to myself maybe he is a famous rabbi that I just dont know of him. I go about my morning and since my memory is very bad I forgot about this dream. Then I decide to go online and check my email and the FIRST email I open up is this one about Rabbi Weinberg and my jaw dropped, His face was the man in my dream. This never happens to me. Im in awe and a bit scared. Just thought I would share this maybe someone can give me insight. Have a great week everyone.
December 8, 2009 9:33 PM
Beautiful & most inspirational. Now to act upon Rabbi Weinberg's wisdom & to encourage others to do the same. Thank you for the food for thought - and for the lovely & appropriate musical background.

December 7, 2009 4:12 PM
I gotta think about this
December 7, 2009 4:08 PM
beauty is truth
there is nothing to add to this, because the words are echoic, and we all surely recognize the truth in these most glowing lines. I do believe the deepest of wonder is just this: a child's smile, another sunset, the opportunity to grow given how we are watered, daily, and growth is surely that reaching of hands, toward the Parent of us all, who lifts us to greater and greater heights. This story is about love.
Thank you, Rabbi Noah Weinberg.
December 7, 2009 9:01 AM
wow. every second on this site is an elevation for his soul. That video was so moving. We watch it for two minutes and enjoy it, but for Rabbi Weinberg, that was what his entire life was about.

Thank you for R' Noah Weinberg for giving us such clarity on how to live our lives!!
December 6, 2009 1:08 PM
A most eloquent and creative example of what encourages me to tell people about this phenomenal website. How fortunate are those who merited making R' Noah their Rabbi ! For more information on the six Constant Mitzvos see R' Noah's essays in the "Foundations" section under "Spirituality" or get a copy of the new classic book "The Six Constant Mitzvos" based on lectures by Rabbi Y. Berkowitz.
