Yes, the children suffer

I can be a witness to your words.
My husband and me we made our children suffer. The suffering is going on.
Without Gods help it will go on forever. Thanks for your clear words every week!

Something To Look Forward To Each Week

Dear Rabbi Simmons:
I wish to place on record that I thoroughly enjoy your weekly one minute audios, as well as your written comments about the Torah portion of the week, which I find inspirational and makes one look forward to reading the weekly portion with greater understanding. Please keep up the great work. Sincerely, Frank L. Rubensohn

couldn't agree more

Being born with a mix of two faiths is not a gift, it is a torment! it is only now at 40 I am finding peace and seeing that I cant please everyone, so in this case I will please myself, egotistical maybe, but a peaceful sort of egoism. I chose the Jewish side of me as it gave me inner peace. My children, the children I share with my non-Jewish wife, thankfully have also chosen Judaism as their future, and as my wife considers herself to be without faith it causes no grief at home. All I have to do now is show the way to faith to my wife.
