Father's Day is very hard. My wife died in an accident three years ago after 37 years of marriage. The Father's Day wishes from my twin daughters are nice, but not having my wife to wish me Happy Father's Day (and not being able to wish her Happy Mother's Day last month) makes these special days hard. If you know someone who has lost their spouse, give them a call today and wish them Happy Father's Day. It will help.

Everyday should be Parent's day

While I understand why this video came out today, I think that we should remember that everyday is Mother's and Father's Day.

Bonding transcends behavior

The playing field isn't balanced with regard to the bonding influence on children

this video was really emotional for me. I'm a 12 year old girl and my father died in the summer of 2012. In his sleep. I'm glad someone understands me because the way I see it, I still have a father. he is 'still my daddy' even if he's not alive. if you know any kids around my age who need someone to talk to they can email me at tuttifrutti059@hotmail.com
id love to help people in my situation cuz I know how hard it is.

I love you Daddy

Thanks for letting me celebrate Father's Day with the memories of my Dad still alive in my heart. He returned his soul to Hash-m less than two years ago after a 5 year battle with CLL.My dad one of my greatest heroes and my best friend. I think of him every day and try to emulate his great kindness, generosity and ahavas Yisreol. May his memory be for a blessing and may we merit the geulah shelmah without any more delay.

David, thank you for honouring fathers. So many men are down-trodden today and we need to tell them our appreciation. Beautiful song and photography

In 1991 My Daddy died at age 78 after an 11 year struggle with cancer. Not a day goes by that I don't remember him and my house is a shrine to the wonderful needle and upholstery works of this fine and loving Dad. Daddy - I truly hope there is a Gan Eden for you and Mommy for I miss you both very much,

I watched the video and reflects the same love that makes me remember the love I have for my father who now has Parkinson's disease. Love is the fifth element, in addition to four other elements that are known: water, fire, air and land. Shalom to you

fatherless Father's Day

What a great film! My father passed away three years ago. He was a scholar, humanitarian, teacher, provider, friend, and a true inspiration to me and everyone who knew him. I, too, am a father, but sadly, our local family court has seen to it that I can not be the father I want to be for my daughter. I pray that this year will be the last year that my beautiful little girl will have a fatherless Father's Day. I hope this film inspires others to learn about how poorly fathers and their children are treated in courts, and will take a stand against judicial abuse inflicted on families by the courts.

Father's adore their children maybe more then mothers

My husband also is a victim of a court system that favors women, even if they are unfit. Our four children still engage their mother even though she is litigious, lies, tried to hit me with a car with our granddaughter in the car while I was a pedestrian, and so much more. Our children still don't get that we have had to put out so many fires created by their mother in order to protect them, and guess what? the orthodox community we are in actually encouraged her to sue us over a false claim our daughters school had! Yeah, that was stress free for our daughter and other 3 children!! Dads get the short end of the stick. I hope our children dont have regrets later in life.

Even when they are gone...

This was precious, and a great reminder of how influential dads are, (even if they are sometimes unaware of it). Dads come in every color, shape and size. I agree with Yakov Lunan. Happy Father's Day to you, too. For Jewish Daddies, every day is Mother's and Father's day, because we find such joy in them. Thanks for another inspiring reminder!

(18) Benzion KLatzko, June 17, 2009 2:24 PM

Beautiful!

Nicely done! Reb Yom Tov, kol Hakovod! See you in Israel soon BEZH!

I lost my dad to the Klu Klux Klan when I was only three. I am an African American Orthodox Jew. When I see these films from Aish I am inspired to ask this question: Where are the Etheopian "Daddy's" or the Afican American Daddy's in your films? You ask Jews to never stop careing and to give to their situation, but you do not represent any Jews of color often enough in your presentations. Your media is powerful. I love you so lets keep it real. Tikun HaOlom... We all have got the privilage of fixing the whole world for the Almighty. So please don't leave any of us out. Yakov Lunon.

Very good. Excelent video y I send me other video more. Shalom Ubraja.

I didn't know Rabbi Glaser could sing!

Very nice. It's a good thing you had some frum Dads also. I was beginning to be annoyed that there were none. They don't show up till the end. I would have like to see more of them. Maybe a redo, with yeshivishe, heimishe, etc.?

I saw this last nite and it really touched my heart. I love how you portrayed the love for every kind of "Daddy" there is. I'm just wondering if that is why I called my father this morning... Thank you for the inspiration!
