Another interesting lecture abo A spiritual leader in a time of controversy. Pleas take the time to watch and learn.
As always you piqued my interest in the controversial subject of how the modern nation state of Israel deals with the Sabbatical year! I’m leaving a link to a short article about the controversy. Thank you and may the One God bless you and prosper you in all that you do.
It was an honor to be mentioned at your talk! I can only hope others will be inspired to sponsor these good talks. And I will again as my budget allows. 🙂
