Thank you for your comments Rabbi

Dear Rabbi, My husband (the Love of my Life) died 4 months ago. Our baby Would have been 32 next January. Now my husband knows if our baby was a boy or a girl. I have to wait. Thank you for your prayers for Everyone who Needs them this New Year.

yearning for a bashert

Ever since my first trip to Israel almost 10 years ago, I have yearned to find the right or good enough Jew to be my bashert. Unfortunately, it's not so easy having Asperger's syndrome with some very potential social difficulties. Indeed, I do yearn to (eventually) find the right or good enough Jew to date and marry. It's just not been so easy as I can't seem to get much help from my family, friends, and Jewish online dating/matchmaking websites, as well as when I go out to Jewish-oriented social events in the community, not to mention how there are really no guarantees in life and such resources to help go about finding one's bashert aren't fool-proof. First off, it's all a matter of me wanting to be happy as that is probably a fundamental goal that comes before finding and sharing such happiness with someone else. If only I could find a way to be more happy and not get so irate and upset over certain stressful minutia in life, I can get closer to my lifetime goals of happiness, finding my bashert, among other good things to come as I should be inscribed in the book of life as I always have been.

Rabbi--I wish you and your family Shana Tova. This year when I am in Shul, I will be dovening for Congresswoman Gabby Giffords. Before she was nearly killed a few years ago, I believe she and her husband were undergoing fertility treatments. Although I have never met her, I have followed her progress since that tragic day. It is obvious that she works so hard in her recovery! I wish her and her husband nothing but the best. Thank you for this timely message.
