    Wow.  Phenomal shiur.  Today, I got up & asked HKBH, "What next"? This Shiur seems to talk about Codependency. 

    BH, with HKBH & my therapist, I will borrow cruses of oil while I work on shutting the door, not to have unwanted distractions.  This is what I need to work on with my family.

    The shiur made me feel hopeful that all the oil will accrue eventually to bring light & goodness into my life, my pure Neshama Elokis.  Rabbi, thank you for always inspiring me & giving me the message I need on that particular day.

    The wild children on the subway were coming from the hospital where their mother had just died

    The story is attributed to Steven Covey of  "7 habits". I heard from a brother that story actually happened to Snnaz Zirkind.

     Rabbi YY I can't thank you enough.Your last shiur on My Judaism is dead... etc. just saved my spiritual and emotional life. I am 73 years of age and living with the empty vessels but now I know that this is a positive response and can mean living with emunah. Thank you thank you

    There are literally no words to describe the incredibly invigorating, or perhaps the word thrilling is better, shiur on Tuesda.

    It’s awesome how the holy Bal Hatanya ztl was able to share such a Divine lesson from Navi to a future generation groping in the dark, suffering from spiritual frostbite...

    Rabbi Jacobson, your words thawed many a freezing heart and warmed many a grateful soul...

    Weather it’s to improve ones relationship with Hashem, a spouse or child, there isn’t a caring Jew who can’t grow and be inspired from this masterpiece of a shiur.

    With tremendous Hakoras Hatov
