I love the acronym SRVP

Thanks for giving us a really smart acronym for remembering the 4 steps of Teshuvah! A very inspirational message!

Rosh Hashanah

I just watched your Rosh Hashanah "almost live" video and wanted to write and tell you that I loved it. I often watch your videos and enjoy them. This one in particular is very inspiring and encouraging. Thank you. My prayer is that I go forward that I would Plan better so that I do not repeat my sins of the past. L"chayim

Shana Tova!

I am not sure my comment went through but I said the following. Shana Tova to you, Lori! You shine. I have listened to you through this year and though we don't always see "I to I", mostly I agree and then again, I have had the privilege of commentary. Beyond thou shalt love and do unto others, I believe it's all commentary! My mantra: I love, therefore I am. One of my favorite articles for this time came on Aish, the video, the Chinese Bamboo. Beauty IS truth.

Dear Lori, with best wishes for a very Happy New Year! You invariably make me happy because you shine. We most often, agree, and when we don't, I have the privilege of writing commentary on line. Isn't it true that if you love with all your heart with all your soul and with all your might, that's IT, the rest is commentary. If I have got it wrong, correct me, AND RSVP This is a mantra I think we all should follow. I hold to this: I love, therefore, I am.

Loving what is right

What is the old saying: "loving what is different from hating what is evil and feeling good about it." G-d wants us to truly love what is right - if we DO then next year will always be a better year for the world. Not necessarily for our mortal selves - for those who love what is evil - will always hate those who love what is right. But even though we are grains of sand, irritating grains DO make beautiful pearls.

Shana Tova to you and your family!

It is not always easy to admit that we keep doing the same wrong actions over and over again. I believe that admitting that we need to see the wrong in our actions is all part of growing and developing into a mature adult. Hashem wants us to see how we can become a person with more understanding of how we can correct our ill actions of saying loshon hora and doing injustice towards others. We are all capable of becoming better individuals. Some of us have to learn how to respect ourselves, so we can be able to respect others, in our day to day living.
