Stop with the political correctness, Donald Trump is giving a bad name to us the Jews!!! When the Gentiles find out that her daughter is Jewish they are going to attack us for not stopping this Eisav called Donald Trump. I am seeing the hate against Mexicans here in the United States, we the Jews must step in and show love and bestowal!! Someone has to tell Donald Trumps daughter to talk to this Eisav gentile father or we have to talk to her daughter personally. She is failing us the JEWS and I am paying the price, because some gentiles are saying that this is Jewish propaganda against the Mexicans and that there is money involved read it and don't erase it!!

i don't understand why celebrities or their families are of interest to anyone. Why did we have to know this was Howard Sterns daughter? G-d is no respecter of men, and the novelty or celebrity associated with a person certainly doesn't encourage modesty or model a lifestyle of service to others.
I know celebrities are people too. Let's tell the story without the notoriety being involved.

Shabbos means to rise above our human egoism. Shabbat is really not a tradition, or family time, but it is to recognize that the regulatory system nature or G-d which is the same thing, we humans must be part of nature and be one with nature and we have to rise above the egoism to altruism. And please with due all respect don't present Judaims as a religion, because it is not. Judaism is the study or the observations of laws of nature. If a person is religious it means that, that person lacks knowledge of realtiy, if a person has faith it means that, that person also lack knowledge of the laws of nature. We need truth and the way we connect to the truth is though nature!!! A person does not have to be Jewish to be one with G-d, ultimatley every person whether Jew or non Jew must rise above the ego!! Every body must unite to be at peace with every ethnic group in the world so let us UNITE!!

I love shabbos
I am 16 and I was not raised to keep shabbos. A couple years ago I realized that the Torah instructs us to rest on the seventh day, and to KEEP IT HOLY. So ever seens I have been keeping shabbos, (although it has not always been easy), and I have realized what a blessing it is! Every week I look forward to shabbos. To forget about all my every day worries and stresses and remember what is really important in life.
Shabbat Shalom! :)

YES! This is exactly what has happened to me!
My mum, Golda, was from an observant Jewish family here in Scotland. She married my Plymouth Brethren dad, Jim, in 1955. They both rejected their respective religious backgrounds completely and raised me a vehement atheist...HOWEVER: towards the end of her life, my mother yearned for the Jewish faith and talked about it a lot. Now, sixty years after she left, I have resumed attending her former shul, and have "come out" as Jew. It has transformed my life. I am so grateful for this second chance.

I was waiting to hear you say, "why?" why all this interest in being a Jew? and being religious? Because the world has become a horrible place. Drugs and parties and drinking (I'm sure you can add to that) and life has become one big empty NOTHING.Everyone steals, cheats, lies,murders, betrays, the list is endless... Jewish values are SO beautiful, being honest, being kosher, treating everyone with respect, knowing that g-d runs the world and we MUST trust him and his torah.

the school system has missed the boat
It bless H-shem for the ones who come back...only H-shem in His wisdom knows shy there are so many that turn their back on it and to the pain of their parents walk away. The moral is no expectations and only gratitude if it is indeed H-shems plan that it works for you. There but for the grace of H-shem go I.........

Thank you for the beautiful video especially about Shabbos since my father's yahrzeit is coming up July 29th. He keptShabbos in America when it was very hard to keep Shabbos.He was fired from his job many times because of it. As a result of his keeping Shabbos his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren are Shomer Shabbos. Two of his grandchildren are involved in kiruv one in LA and the other in West Palm Bch, Florida. As a matter of fact, my daughter Bruchy Cheplowitz left to Israel last night with a group of non religious women.

still uncertain re facts
Yes, Donald Trump's daughter's converted and is an Orthodox Jew. Glad to hear Howard Stern's daughter is shomer shabbos. I don't know if this means more Jews are becoming observant than there are formerly observant Jews becoming secular. Assimilation seems greater than ever as well. I hope and pray the trend you are witnessing is a true indication of the facts at present .So much work still seems to be needed to reach so many Jews. Still, it seems healthy to celebrate success.Keep em coming
