Dear Rabbi,

As I listened to your eloquent words, I thought of a two word phrase which could describe our world situation. The phrase is for now. For now we are sheltering in place and our lives have been turned upside down. However, for now means that there WILL be better days ahead. Last Sunday I was supposed to see West Side Story on Broadway. It was going to be a Mother's Day present, but of course I did not get to see the show. Was I disappointed? Very much so, but that disappointment will not last. It was just for now. Incidentally, I was looking for another one of your videos when I found this one. You know what they say about coincidences...... Shavua tov. Stay healthy and safe!

What a great answer to so many problems.

Thank you Rabbi Sytner,

This a a terrific spin on dealing with the Corona virus and other frustrating situations in life. Very inspiring message and delivery. I too trust God completely to get us through everything.

Thank you for your message

This video was a wake-up call reminding me that I can take the lead for myself only, Acceptance is something I have to remember and keep it in mind when that "hopeless" feeling tries to get hold of me.
