Very glad to receive your e mail. Just received this computer from my brother. I have been going to the Conservatory of Music which is why I stopped attending classes. Sorry for not letting you know. Carole

Enjoyed your message, Rabbi. It's been so long since I've even thought about my own talents or gifts, I'm going to have to perform some serious excavation to find them. Plenty to think about here.

Rabbis definition of success vs Torah

Enjoyed success defined video but couldn’t help the contrasting definition in Joshua 1:8

Thank You

Rabbi Tzvi Sytner

Thank you for the wisdom and great inspiration in " The Jewish definition of Success" I seek wisdom and God is leading me to find it from the chosen Jews. I am Catholic and believe the catholic teaching that the Jews are God 's chosen. What the biblical Jewish prophets said ' the desert will become an oasis and rightous will dwell there" has come true.for such a small nation to make such great contributions to the world ,can only be explained by the hand of God.amazing. The bible also said you will be a lite to all nations and those that bless you will be blessed on judgement day. The faith, love, courage and wisdom of the holy Israeley Jew is an inspiration to me. That inspiration is calling me to donate one of my kidneys to a holy Israely Jew in the future. To help populate Holy Israel is my calling that is pleasing to God for his chosen Jew- in love and reverance- bryan DAVID lucchesi

Tzvi Sytner

How do I sign up for posts from this Rabbi's Blog on AISH? Or, do I have to look for one of his videos every week?

Valuable words.... especially to today's young people

As a boomer generation person I think today's young people must feel great pressure from: comparisons with others via social media, increased number of choices for career, reduced quality of true communication because everyone is so "busy". I'd suggest his message helps these folk, and us all, to answer the key question (which I first heard from Rabbi Palatnik... thank you!) >> What am I living for? <<.
