Dearest Lori, Thank you so much for this video. You have no idea how much I needed to hear it. May you continue to inspire and positively affect others. Good Shabbos.

Hardship at my job

Dear Lori, Thank you so much for these incredible video posts - they are very to the point! For about 3 years now (since we had our second child), I'm experiencing hardship/difficulty at my job. I definitely know that it's a test because it's very difficult for me. So, I got the 90%, but - What category (G-CAM) would that go under? and how would I get that last 5% to completely relieve myself of this difficult test in my life. Thank you.

Which test?

It's difficult for me to tell you exactly which category of test, as I do not know the details. Please fell free to email me with more information: LPalatnik@aish.com

Oy Vey!

Shalom Lori, I have Scleroderma and last year I got a staph infection in a calcium deposit in my elbow. The doctor wanted me to go to the hospital or come to his office everyday for treatment. I refused so they put me on drugs instead. I made this decision in fear and depression and I'm still alive. Maybe you should teach about "free will". Life is a test and our outcomes are predetermined? I'm Jewish and love Hashem, but all this talk is not true. You won't turn on your lights, but you open your refrigerators. Come on. I'd rather drive to synagogue and be with the Jewish community or turn on a CD from Neshama Carlebach and listen to His love for me. There is no reason to stay home and be alone today (even in Israel). One of your Rabbis on Aish.com wrote back to a disabled person and told him not to turn on his computer on Shabbat. I was so upset with his advice. This is the 21st century and I turn on my computer every Shabbat to learn Torah. All I have to say is Isa. 3:18 from the Stone Edition Tanach. You do more harm than good because you are not bringing those like myself closer to Hashem. We need to draw close to Him and everyday is Shabbat in my life. You are very sweet and I enjoy your teachings. My husband is having surgery on his right hand for cancer next month. Please pray for him. Thank you. Shalom and blessings, Robin

Dear Anonymous

It is nice to see that even though you seem to disagree with a lot of what you read and see on aish.com, that you still keep coming back. It is an example of what we always teach: "It's not all or nothing." Your perseverance and desire for wisdom, even though you may struggle, is inspiring.
