    It was so good to read your article. Your message is so powerful. HaShem wants you and you are relevant ALL the time. Every thing you can do is so precious. Big or small. Figure out what you CAN do. HaShem should send you refua sheleima immediately.

    Dear Yitzi,
    It was 5751-2 in Tomchei Tmimim Morrison. I was new at Yeshiva and didn’t know anyone. You were one of the guys that made me feel welcome. You and your family are amazing. Actually, I don’t know if there are words that describe what you are all are.
    All I can say is keep on smiling, writing and inspiring until the imminent revelation of the Rebbe Melech Hamoshiach, when you will be able to laugh, dance and sing.

    you both are amazing

    Teacher once again

    I remember yitzy teaching in ocean parkway. I was a student at the time in your class. I remember when you told us you were leaving. We were all broken with lots of tears. But it seams like you have managed to once again become my teacher.

    Thanks

    You make me want to be better

    Such Vulnerability!

    Dear Yitzi,
    your vulnerability in sharing your deepest hardship-of being irrelevant, touches the core of us all. At some point in life, we all face that innate fear- what am I worth? GIving voice to such depth allows the rest of us to face ourselves. Thank you! you and your family are a vehicle of inspiration just by being.

    I was concerned that I had not heard from you in such a long time. I’m sorry you were having issues with your eyes, and I pray that the situation is totally resolved. I was on the trip to the Ukraine with Dina a few years ago, and I have had concern for all of you since then.

    You Are amazing.

    Dear Dina and Yitzy, May we reach the level of Hashem when his worlds of revealed good and hidden good are one! Moshiach now. Complete health and oneness of HaShem in every detail. Thank you for sharing a ray of this.

    Thank you, you helped me

    I am an old lady currently dealing with some health challenges, thankfully nothing anywhere near what you have, but challenging nonetheless. The psychological component is that I feel frustrated because I have always been a giver and in my current situation I am not able to give in the ways I used to. Reading what Dina told you, “If you are alive, it means that you are relevant to Hashem, and that you make a difference.”, and that you got strength from that, gave me strength too. 🙂 Thank you very much for being an incredible role model and may… Read more »
