    Incredible class and story! There are times in life that we are lucky enough to see the big picture that G-d intended. The challenge is remember the clarity we experienced during those moments and to live this knowledge in the instances we can't see it. When we can rise to the occasion, the inner peace one can experience is immeasurable.

    Question for Rabbi YY

    The Rabbi said in a class last week that children that are lacking love will look for it by looking for attention, My question to the Rabbi is ( I know its a personal question but Its very important for me) How does the Rabbi who is giving lectures for thousands of people allmost on a daily base, and you get all strong compliments and amazing attention all day, how dose the Rabbi stay hones and intuned into your true self and not get caught up to be dependent on al the constant compliments and attention? Thank You

    Question for Rabbi YY

    Thank you Rabbi YY. I still don’t understand why not to eat the gid hanasha. Why does it have to reflect in the prohibition of eating (Besides for the fact that is Jews love to eat) is there a deep Kabbalah on this?

    isn't it said that in our time, since we aren't worthy of open miracles, that Hashem makes miracles through means that look normal.

    Someone asked...

    Would the prohibition be a result of Jacob's animal spirit (nefesh) was wounded?

    Rabbi Jacobson ,I listen to each word that you say and really try to apply to my life. Speaking of haschaga pratis, I have a son that I'm not proud of his choices, I have been his advocate all these years even with his own father,but really hurts me and have to work so hard on keep believing in him ,I only blame myself and my heart aches when I compare . Can you please give me chizuk.? Thank you.

    Does that mean that our free will is also preorchestrated?

    Hashgacha Protis...

     G‑d not only knowing what is going on down here, but bemg engaged in supervising it as well seems to make free choice for us even more restrictive, challenging and hard for me to wrap my brain around. Seems that it (life) is really more about a constant connection with G-d so that we do what is right, what is G-dly every minute of every day, all the time.

    I think I heard from Rabbi Osher Weiss Shlita that re the mitzvah of Gid HaNosheh, this is the only time in the entire Sefer HaChinuch that the author digresses from pure halocha . Todah rabba for wonderful shuir!
