  1. Your work is SUPERB.

    Living in R.I., I do not have the privilege of attending your live lectures.

    Do you have a listing of all of your YouTube videos?

    Many thanks,

  2. After listening to your lectures, I appreciate the close relationship of the Islam and the Jewish faith. Than you for your continuing educational work.
