From Bais Yaakov to Barnard: realizing ones' potential is a continual process

I am very impressed with your honesty and willingness to tackle problems - and offer an array of solutions. It is very easy to intellectualize problems and define dilemmas, but much harder to present solutions to those problems. You make me want to actualize my own potential, instead of punting. Thank you so much

Hi great article as A Jew I am so thankful for America the Medina Chel Chessed. Until Moshiach comes we are in Golus no matter where we live and America is a tolerant nation, a land of oppertuntity and a friend of Eretz Yisroel. Daven for Moshiach. And G-d Bless America

You DO merit it............

Gd gave the land of Israel as a gift to us....we only need to accept the very thing we pray three times a day for. In any case as a dual American - Israeli citizen, I would think it would be rather obvious that Canada is by far a greater friend to Israel now than the US is. Come home soon. We will give you a better ceremony here and you wont need to pass a test on our history, although it would give you a better appreciation for it.
