I have discovered over the years that personality compatibility is an essential component of a happy marriage.

Netzavim: Choose Life

27 Elul 5772 – September 13, 2012
“The life and the death I have given before you…in order that you should live, you and your seed.… And you shall choose life” (30:19). “Choosing life” is one of the highest accomplishments (Shaare Teshuvah III:17).

24 Elul 5772 – September 11, 2012
