In Response!!!

An excellent message!!! I also do not care about public opinion. Residing in Israel, I am one of two others in my shule who wear a tie on Shabbos as well as at simchas in which case I may be the only one wearing a tie. I also wear a long scarf that covers my mouth as well in the winter because where I live, it can get very windy in the winter, but I don't care what anyone thinks. I do what is best for me. If anyone disagrees with me about a certain topic, I stick to what I believe in and nobody can persuade me. Again, this is an excellent message.

I get it

When I hear dear friends who I believed to be strong supporters of Israel qualifying the acts of cruelty that are occurring now, I will think of your scarf and speak up. Thank you.

Excellent commentary as usual. But with all due respect, I found it to be a stretch to equate wearing a scarf when the weather turns cool, and hearing mildly derisive comments from others, with the ridicule that Noah or Abraham's heard.

Doing what is right.

I once saw a beautiful poster with the following words written on it: What's right isn't always popular and what's popular isn't always right. What an encouraging way to live one's life!

reason for 120 years

The whole point of Noah spending 120 years building the ark was so that people would ask him what he was doing and he did NOT remain silent! He told the people that if they did not abandon their evil ways Hashem would destroy them all! They were given a real opportunity to do teshuvah, which they rebuffed.
