Thank you.

We are Christians but we have received a lot from your series on prayer, especially since we recently suffered a family tragedy.

G-d has a Name.

Thank you so much for this message!
You have touched on the most important thing, to call G-d by His Name. When we call on G-d by His personal Name it's always sure to catch His attention. The Torah tells us so.

concise and powerful lessons :

Motivating and easy to digest information for any one!!!The Torah insights are beautiful and it does not matter where you stand as a jew. Orthodox, reform,conservative or traditional. Just listen and apply these lessons to your life!!!

It's complicated...

G-d runs the world, BUT he isn't responsible for all the evil in the world.
The Holocaust was NOT G-ds will, but the will of the Nazis.
Mans free will includes good AND evil.
It remains complicated...
Have you an answer ?

Hashem is, was and will always be

Hashem allowed the Nazi's to prevail up to a point...the State of Israel was born on the heels of the Shoah. Remember the Jews have 2 foes: 1. Those that are extinct 2. Those about to be.

Thank you so much for such a clear outline of tefillah. I've been frum since my bas mitzah and went to BY, but I've never had a real feeling for the meaning of tefillah, although I daven every day. It looks like this series is showing me exactly what my objective in davening really is.
Please keep it coming! Can't wait to hear how to make davening more relevant to my life.
