It was a good explanation of how to love, but you did not answer one of the most debated theological concepts - Who is your neighbor?

I was really hoping to see you answer this question since it is the most fundamental question one can ask when referencing "Love your neighbor as yourself".

How am I suppose to apply it If I don't know who my neighbor is? Christians will tell you it's every Jan Rap en sy maat around the corner, while Jews think otherwise. Some of them argue it's only other Jews, or Noachides or whatever other "covenant", besides the one given by God at Sinai, that exists today, that have been formed in our days that give people an additional and "convenient" method of becoming part of Israel.

It would have been great to see your answer on this question and this was the perfect video to do it. Though a wonderful video I still remain in doubt.

Excellent Analysis

Excellent explanation of one of the most fundamental segment in the Torah; Yeshar Koach Rabbi Fohrman. By the way, the phenomenon of keeping hate inside while smiling outwardly is very very much part of the American character which unfortunately rubbed off on American Jews; I now understand why the Israeli character is much more direct where people reprove each other all day long.
