    This kid sounds so grounded and stable on his two feet. Obviously his mother and rabbeim have done a wonderful job. May he continue bringing naches to all! We are proud to have you amongst us!

    It surprises me that no mention is given to the shluchim of Nebraska and the many mashpiam and rabbonin that have been involved in the lives of Yossi his sister and his mom

    Thanks for putting his name in…now at least I understand that is was someone doing his best….

    Just to point out I am no professional interview but one thing I picked up that you might wanna learn. When conducting an interview they usually do not stay on one subject or question the answers the ask the question then go to the next…

    Why do you think this young man is being exploited? We are being brought an inspiring interview about an incredible kid.
