We love you Lori!

It's awe-inspiring how you use your unique G-d given talents to benefit others. We all benefit tremendously and are continually inspired. Thank You!

Thank you for clarification

Dear Lori,
Thank you so much for having clarified me such an important thing.One has always to ask himself what his outlook is like an well as spiritual level before dating and not the other way around!

Thank you

great advice to not morph into the guy or become religious for him. i thought that way several times dating men and it didn't work out. it's true that you have to do it for yourself and know who you are. thanks again for another great message. i always enjoy listening to them.

Your short talks would make great insperational reading if they were published as a book. The topics are always pertinant and cover subjects we all "know" but need to be reminded of from time to time.

to Anonymous: in Rome do as the Romans do, Aliya Shaliach

mmm...ever heard of 'what you DO speaks so loud I can't hear what you say'?
what Aish HaTorah, and a few other wonderful jewish websites have DONE for SO MANY speaks volumes and they all say: go to Jerusalem
All jews and non jews who have gone to Jerusalem came back with the same report of awe, (my turn in 3 days!)
the last place on earth I would have wanted to go for Judaism is the U.S.
I would have been turned 'right off' had that been the advise
The Amalekites didn't want to dress like Canaanites, just 'sound' like them so they wouldn't 'become' like them, in Rome do as the Romans do,
but in Jerusalem do as the Jews do!
Where else really???
