  1. Dear Rabbi Laitman,

    Unfortunately I came to the study of the Zohar later in life – as planned – I suspect – but not by me. I was born on the second night of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising (in Boston, MA) and that clearly has informed my life. I’ve been reading and thinking and loving this work and I wanted you to know how much I appreciate your site and your wisdom. Although I visit many sites, including Daily Zohar and the various Chabad sites, yours is the site where I feel most connected. We seem to think about many things similarly and I so appreciate your perspective.
    Although I think you are in Russia – (of course my grandparents all came from Russia – but do any of us from Russia know where we really came from? Most of us are products of the many Diasporas. One aspect I love about this is that we are probably the most multi-cultural, multi ethnic religion.) – and I know that the Russian culture changes radically – alll the time, Your insights open new pathways for me all the time. I especially appreciate all you have to say about the Light!

    Many thanks for doing this incredible work for us!
