so true, I also heard from Jewish sources that if you feel angry at someone but hold back, or talk calmly, our sins are erased, and our prayers become more effective

I am actually LDS, but this advice transcends religious affiliation. This rings very true principles. It is healing advice. I appreciate being reminded of this simple truth that can set me free.

Love this Rabbi.

I am one of those. Jewish to the core but a firm atheist. My friends frequently ask me why I study torah, subscribe to this cite,give to Jewish Charities and try to live life in accordance with Jewish philosophy. This segment is a wonderful example of why my Jewishness is so important to me. I am not the master of the universe. I can not let my anger to take over when things don't go my way. Jewish teachings, yes, even without God, give me the guidance I need to lead a meaningful life. Fellow readers please don't lecture me.
