    How Lovely Are Your Tents

    I love your talks, and learn a lot and are greatly inspired by listening to them.

    Just an appeal: I'm not up to your level of proficiency with Hebrew & Yiddish. You do often translate but do not always repeat everything in English, I realize it must be quite a bind do so so. But in this talk I really missed a lot and that made it very hard to follow.


    All the best & Shabbat shalom.
