Very Inspiring

Wow!! Wow!! Wow!! I have no words to describe how amazing this video clip was and what an impact it made on me and my perception of Purim. I always looked forward to Purim but this year I feel it will be a different and more uplifting Yom Tov. Thank You Aish! I would love to see mor clips of Charlie Harary

Charlie has a way of explaining Judaism in such a way that even a non-religious Jew like me is profoundly moved and sees an extraordinary beauty and wisdom in Judaism. My Hebrew school teachers made everything sound so dry and boring. Charlie, however, makes Judaism the most relevant religion I know of. Thanks Aish and Charlie Harary!

I actually understood something else!

The theme of your video, "we are put here on this world for a purpose, to make a difference", is beautiful, but, actually, until you explained the theme, I thought it was about ahavas yisroel and chesed. What Esther and Mordechai did for klal yisroel is the epitomy of love of their people, worrying, and caring, and risking their lives to care for their fellow Jews. and even if you don't know what is your purpose in this world, you are here to try to make this world a better place by being a good , decent person.
