    You are awesome, empathetic, funny, you make me laugh out loud...and I can learn from you..

    So thanks and I laughed my bottom off, you need someone who laughs, bring me along, so I didn't recive justice from a corrupt system and recieved no help from a single person who sweaar oaths to the positions in gov. but it has slowly as my brain and body is healing from 2 attempted murders, but I am doing my best to forgive the oathbreakers and the corruption, but I was so angry and Maui caught fire and well I thanked Hashem for his justice, I told them you have spilled blood of the line of Judah twice and done nothing you will pay one way or another as I did for my sins, yet, Hashem, let my wroth maybe put the fear of Our Father into them...I'm laughing since they took so much from me and cast me out to die instead of giving me a single penny...it took me since I got stuck there on Maui just before corona hit...anyways the volcono on the Big island of Hawaii is erupting all I said would happen to them...forgive me and I love you Hashem and I am getting back to my little spark of God that is I...God bless you and your work, there is 1 Lubatra Rebbe center or synagouge or somewhere I can go and learn from people who are even close to your level of understanding....Shalom shalom..lol I love you and I only know you through here and youtube..God bless you and your family and your word....we'll cut off the head of the snake all together...

    Rabbi Jacobson is a talented, knowldgeable man who helped me make a very difficult decision at the time of complete despair. It is impossible not to see his good humor and clear vision of the right way to live a life. G-d bless him and give him good health to be able to live a long, happy life.
