And to are we promoting women lighting chanukah candles, why shouldn’t they – and for many who else will do it – stop finding nothing to pick at!

WOW!

Mendy Pelin, I know this won`t get to your head ;so I`ll say it: YOU ARE VERY TALENTED!! Kein Ayin Hara. But my favourite which gives me a ton of laughs everytime I see it is the Breslov clip with Mattisyahu. Keep on bringing on the laughs ,smiles and in this clip the tears. A secret admirer from Toronto. Mashiach Now!
