I know that today is a day of suffering, especially when you are reminded of what happened..
My problem is that I don't fee; the suffering. Can I do something?

to Dan Smith: have you ever heard of envy? The Arabs want the Jews out wherever they are and whatever they do!

Thank you Aish for this powerful inspirational video.

Redemption will bring global peace

Dan Smith, as Jews we believe that along with the rebuilding of the temple will also come world peace. The sages teach us in the Talmud that the temple actually brings about and inspires peace. The temple and peace are not a contradiction, but rather the temple bring unification and peace.

Excellent video! I showed it to the entire summer camp I run. Really a very moving message. You give us tremendous hope... If I could give one piece of constructive criticism, I felt that the subtitles were a bit distracting. But I am sure others will disagree with me. Thank you again for making these videos that help us grow as Jews!

May Hashem, blessed is He, keep on blessing Keep on the good work in helping those who are and were lost like me. Now I have been found. I know where I belong and where I will be, no matter what happens. Thanks for your inspirational video.
