Let me say just one LOUD - AMEN! to the article on the pig and pig-like ambitions of this modern world.

The Swine

Expounding upon Midrash, great presentation.

I can't believe some people actually get offended by this message. It is a beautiful message that is brought in the work of great torah scholars. We don't mean to say that the pig is an evel creature, bringing no good to society and horrific. It is just a symbol! The rabbis of over 1000 years ago said that the pig lifts its hands saying I am kosher! And it is naturally complacent in the mud. why do you think the owners put it there? Because they have no other space???? They work/enjoy well there. Gut shabbos to all

Good insight

I agree with Lori about deception in this world and what people are chasing after. As I become older I see this pursuit more clearly. And Lori also would make a pretty good Levite or a Vulcan. ,)

Lori, thank you so much for this vid. Very interesting and original approach to swine flu. And like rivkah said, thank you for your short and to the point messages.
