    you say a joke there which i think is "teitshed" wrong.
    The joke, in short, goes like this: A couple who has been married for many years celebrate their anniversary. the wife says their marriage has been like 2 days. the nudnik asks why punkt two days, so she says like tisha beav and yom kippur. the two toughest days in the jewish calendar...
    but i think this goes so much deeper....its normal for every couple to fight, to have their tisha beavs, but if they then have a yom kippur as well, where they ask for forgiveness (and dont stay stuck on trying to be right), then thats a great marriage!
    i would love to hear what you have to say about this.

    He could play the Borsht Belt for the snowbirds, or tie the tzisis of the chochmim who sit  "un mach a krechtz!." Oy, I laughed until my bones ached!

    Ewe (you?) is a female sheep.
    Rachel means 'female sheep' in Hebrew. After that fact, you defined it as female sheep, then you proceeded to use the word "you  or ewe" eight times within two sentences. Ewe kidding me?

      Ewe is a femake sheep. It is spelled Ewe, and it is pronounced like You.

    very interesting point
    Isnt it interesting that when creating the world and Hashem's "spouse", Hashem first created space within Himself....I guess it is the same concept that we have to learn in marriage.

    I thought the talk was funny, but true. I often see the tired Leah in myself, as well as both Rachael and Leah in my current wife. My wife see the Rachael in me when I loose weight; but I always see the tired Leah in her when she's screaming at my son. That's thought provoking.
    Good talk. I love Chabad.

    For the sake of HaShem
    I am so amazed by your ahavat Israel and ahavat HaShem. I see only Rachel in my husband would be, but he must be HaShem's choice for me and I want to fulfill His Ratzon and Tainug. I do not want to make HaShem sad. For the sake of HaShem, I will try, even if I see Leah in my husband, I will work on it with the Leah in me.
