  1. Mr. Gldberg's words "God is all", IS PANTHEISM, IT IS NOT the ABSOLUTE MONOTHEISM taught by the Torah, where God is the CREATOR, not all of CREATION.
    PANTHEISM HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH TORAH, it's the "en 'od milevadò" of ChaBa"D, which is PANTHEISM, NOT TORAH AND NOT MONOTHEISM.
    NOWHERE IN THE TORAH IS WRITTEN THAT WE SHALL SEE GOD.
    This guy MISREPRESENTS TORAH TRUE JUDAISM.
    I am sorry that the Jewish Press falls for such B.S. and uses it to represent a rabbi vis à vis a pastor.

  2. I've know Gutman Locks for over 22 years while praying every day at the Kotel for HaNetz. He would come in at about 2:00am to set up for a minyn after which he would study Torah until the prayers would start. I would try to come before him, we would fight daily for chairs and standards but it was for a good cause. Every afternoon at about 3:00pm, he and others would set up a stand to put tefilin on tourists, some of whom have never done so in their lives. Of course he would ask them if they were Jewish but even then, you don't know if it was true by Jewish law. Nevertheless, Gutman has good intentions. He was once a drill sergeant in the army, was immersed in Hinduism and actually did not speak for several years before he returned to Judaism. He wrote several books and made lots of videos. IMO, nobody is beyond criticism and certainly not Gutman; so, if you truly want to find fault with Gutman, you will find it as I am sure you would in yourself if you look in the mirror. The importance is that he is trying to rebuild himself to be stronger in Judaism, helping others worldwide who come to the Kotel to become better Jews and daily he asks help from Master of Souls. To those who criticize Gutman I ask, are you doing even a little bit of the same as Gutman?
