Not just every Jew matters, but everyone matters.

I cried, reading this. Confined to wheel-chair, with MS, I, all too often, feel that I'm worthless. This story actually put a spark in me-very thankful-

You are so very important and vital,Joyce!

P.S. Don’t let MS define who YOU are!

Anything physical tangible to Hashem is Fire!

Fire is neutral, has no favourites, but it has a life of its own!
Respect It!

Am amazing vedio. When i watched it it really touched my heart as i have a disabled brother who is severly disabled. when i was little i would always wonder why i was chosen to have him in my life. and now i realise becuse it has helped my family grow into the people who we are.

G-d bestowed your little brother to your family because He knew that he would be taken care of with love and care.

This should be heard all over the world. Instead of fighting why can't we help each other in every aspect. This video should be seen by all that care it was amazing

I absolutely LOVED this! A universal message that reminds us how important each of us and how every day there is something in this would that only I can fix!

Excellent video and profound lesson... This literally could not have come at a better time in my personal life. This video has helped motivate me and get me out of my rut.
I will be emailing this video to everyone I know.
Thank you for Aish for all that you do!

What an incredible insight and awesome story! I am not familiar with this holiday but I want to learn more about it now and about the Rabbi you mentioned. Just awesome stuff!

Thank you so much for this video...I literally stopped and took a breath as I heard three little words within this video..."to fix you". I have worked with special needs kiddos for almost 15 years now and your video was so very timely...Thank you for allowing me to hear the words that I so seldom remember, yet so often need to hear!
