    I just listened to your message about Jews being crouching lions. In Africa, a cat crouches just before pouncing, not a relaxed or docile position at all. It's actually a term for "Potential" energy. A very empowered position. With that definition of "crouching" does Bilaam's message change somewhat?

    I  write with gratitude to thank you for all your wonderful shiurim 
    which I have the privileged to listen to most weeks from the Tuesday 
    class and anything in between.  For so long they have been the source of 
    chizuk in personal and family situations and I am grateful that you have 
    given your time and kochos for Klal Yisroel One of my favorites which I 
    have listened to many times is a Lech Lecho which you gave some years 
    ago in a class room setting.

    There was one point in this weeks shiur on Balak which confused me.  You 
    mentioned that you had read The Tattooist from Auschwitz last Shabbos.   
    I had thought that reading books not Torah literature was not allowed on 
    Shabbos and many years ago weaned myself of it.  I would be grateful if 
    you could clarify the halocho.

    With grateful thanks for the years of inspiration.

    WOW What a life saver shiur

    I just finnished to listen, one can't live life without your shiurim, considering all of the struggles life brings.

    It's so powerfull, and change the  whole way of thinking, and teaches us how to be a true jew.
