Beautiful message, especially NOW!

A great reminder to be the menorah that illuminates the world around us. Such a deep concept explained so beautifully. Thank you for sharing!

Thay was beautiful and inspiring! I find it so frustrating these days that I have to interact with people with a mask on. It feels like I can't use my smile to connect with people non verbally. Looking forward to the days we can once again use our entire face to connect with people!

I cannot agree more.

The masked society takes away our humanity.
The Hebrew word for face is “panim” directly related to the word “p’nim,” meaning “within.” That inner part of us, the “p’nim” is what shines in a truly empathetic or happy smile.

The amazing work of Puah

Elimor that is so beautiful. Puah really does incredible work and this story, this lady’s face is representative of all the faces of the people that make up the organization - from the rabbinic advisors to the emotional support team, the volunteers and everyone else involved In the journey. Thank you for sharing

Public property! Loved this meaningful video!

A teacher of mine ( R Esther Baila Schwarz) taught me a priceless lesson: our face is public property!! Whatever is going on in ones life... when we’re out & about... smile... say hello! It’ll probably help our mood too!!

beautiful & touching!
Even though my "menorah" is now behind a mask, I try to make my eyes shine even more!

Thank you so much for your beautiful inspiring video. You have reignited in me passion and hope. May you be blessed. Sometimes we wonder why God places us in the places that he puts us. I always try to glorify the name of God by being kind and compassionate to others. Your video gives me strength as I do my job.
