Let's not Overcorrect

The magnificent messaging in rhyme moved me from screen to screen. That our society was already socially distanced due to our overuse of technology, and in particular our extreme focus on others' lives, is a point extremely well-taken. Yet, connecting with others might be overcorrecting, when the real shift might first be the need to value that our own lives are large and meaningful, and worthy of our attentive, excited focus. Heartfelt connection with others is the outcome of that work.

Wow!

Rabbi




This video is a work of art! Rabbi Friedman got to the quintessential truth about coronavirus in a few well chosen words...and even made them rhyme. The video is beautiful and fits the script perfectly, which magnifies the power of the point being made by bringing the mind and heart together for a deeply moving experience. I thank all who were involved in creating this video.

Excellent video

The video of Rabbi Markovitz expresses my exact thoughts. Unfortunately. mankind needs these reminders once and awhile. Viruses, disasters such as floods, fires, and horrific wars are all part of this cycle. We need to respect each other, care more about the environment, and see each other as one species on our earth.
