What readers are saying…
Thank you for your tremendous work! These emails are impressive, inspiring and full of content! I am so appreciative to have these beautiful words come to my inbox every week.
Excellent middos email. My husband and I read it together and did the trivia, it was great.
I want to wish you a tremendous Yasher Koach! This project is exceptional. The content is superb and it makes Yiddishkeit alive and easy to access… Before Rosh Hashana, I asked that one of my classes in Seminary sign up for this email. This week, I was teaching about a certain topic, and a girl noted that this was mentioned in the Middos emails! I was so impressed that she not only read it, but integrated it! Yasher Koach for all of your great work.
Wow. This is great. I love this week’s email! I’m so glad I’m a sponsor 😉
I love Middos Challenges. We read it and discuss it at our Shabbos table – it’s beautiful. We don’t need to get points for it to have a wonderful impact on our family! Thank you!
I really wanted to thank you and marvel at the unbelievable program that you are running. [My son is participating, too, and] it’s great when I hear him thanking me for the opportunity to help at home because it will “bring him so much s’char in the world-to-come”!
Just wanted to express my thanks for your emails. I just left (outgrew) the Bais Yaakov system and started working, and the emails are a great way to add more ruchniyus into my week. I especially appreciate the weekly challenges and the examples given – I find that they are very practical and relevant to daily life. Thanks again!
Hi! I just wanted to thank you for these beautiful emails! Today is Taanis Esther and I’m fasting. I’m in college and sometimes you can forget the meaning behind everything while being so busy with all the technicalities…. But Middos Challenges really keeps me focused and gives me a beautiful deep perspective on everything!
Right after I read this email about Zrizus, my mother asked me to do something for her, and because of you, I decided to use Zrizus to do it right away even though my yetzer hara was making me feel not in the mood to do it. So tizku lmitzvos!!! Thanks for all your inspiration 🙂
I think there is a certain chizuk in being part of a large group of people working on the same middah. [Even though] we don’t talk to each other… there’s the poem and picture part of it [i.e. the Creativity Challenges] from which I hear how others take the lessons and apply it. Although I don’t keep track of the challenges when I do them, it’s interesting how seeing how much others do them makes me want to do it more.
This is the only email list I am signed up for, because it is so great!
I would like to share with you a comment that my 8 year old son made. He said: “You know, Mommy, if more women everywhere did Middos Challenges, Moshiach would come already!” He, too, sees the beauty and value in working on ourselves and growing….
I look forward to the emails each week because I can really feel a difference in my behavior, my avodas Hashem and the way I look at the world because of them.
Just wanted to let you know that because of this week’s email about the power of Silence, I was able just now to avoid an argument. A person close to me called me to give me mussar about something and instead of arguing, defending, or explaining, I kept saying, ‘OK… OK… OK…’ and I was mekabel (accepted it). I’m still not sure I agree with her, but silence and shalom (peace) were worth more than being right. Thank you!
