    I'm not jewish (orthodox christian here), but since I've discovered your work – which is truly amazing :)), you've become a source of inspiration for me… Plus, I discover new things about judaism, in a very clear way. And that's thanks to you!! Toda raba, keep going!! 🙂

  3. Mitzvot are so meaningful whether one knows the deeper messages or not. But knowing the deeper messages makes it so much more uplifting.

  4. Thank you for teaching so many women about the beauty of separating challah.

  5. I want to tell you how much my little girl (4yrs old) loves your video! (We both do!) We made your Challah together yesterday, and it was so WONDERFUL!
    Thank you!!
