    When they wrote the Megilla they knew

    That we would be looking back in time to  the  days of Shushan  They also had us looking back further to  the days of Yehoshua. 

    "Those in walled cities might feel more secure because of  the  walks but they build them in the first place because they are not confident without them.

    Those in open cities without walls feel less secure without a  wall but were MORE confident without them. 

    Today there are Jewish groups who put up very high  very strong walls to protect themselves and  their children  from  outside influences.  (E.g. women don't drive, no internet even with a filter, etc)  They are less confident without the  walls.

    Then there Jewish groups that strengthen themselves on the inside,  feel more secure and don't feel the need for such walls. In fact they even send out shluchim, not only to places with no walls  but to places with no Yiddishkeit.

      it looks like you are not comfortable being a lubavitcher shliach unless you feel approved so dont worry i approve you and your work and by the way i also approve those putting up walls against outside influences

      have a great day
