Great speaker, made me think and laugh at the same time.

Very nice presentation.  The Rabbi’s comments speak to all thinking persons and truly bring out why it is that religion does and should matter.

If you want something to really think about this is it.(and it’s funny!)

The Rabbi’s talk touches me in a deep place of recognition. I’ll listen to it again.
Thank you Simple To Remember

The reason to be Jewish is to be closer to The Almighty/ The Holy One of Yisrael—- YHVH Tzavot.  It is important to be a part of His chosen People; to study the Tanakh & to obey & honor Him; to keep His Mitzvot & live a Just & Righteous life.

This was hilarious, and so intelligently put. I think every Jew should listen to it. It allows the listener to hear Rabbi Orlofsky’s smart solution to this seemingly unanswerable yet pertinent question, while having a laugh at the whole of world Jewry, whom this rabbi/comedian so aptly imitates.

Say: O ye who are Jews that you Zaaemtem parents to God without the people, then long for death if ye are truthful.

Took me back to remember my roots!

This was the most amazing presentation of the Jewish idea I have heard. I have read Rabbi Sacks’ book “Letter in the Scroll” which is enlightning and I have tried to get through “Path of the Just”. But you, Rabbi Orlofsky shine!

All the way through I was so entertained-you truly have a gift of narration and I wondered where you will peak. Well, the peak came at the end and I was blown away.

Rabbi Dovid Orlofsky was very amazing in this audio.  He both took serious issues and comedy and rolled it all around.  About every 3 to 5 minutes everyone would just laugh.  He holds your attention 100% and delivers serious messages with laughter.  I would love to go to Israel and follow him around and learn from him.

“Why be Jewish?”

Sure, if you want to be a whiny, manipulative, race-obsessed Khazar-supplicant then “be a Jew”.

By Moses pratap on November 26, 2012 -- 6:11am

Its not a religion but lifestyle towards Almighty

By Moses pratap on November 26, 2012 -- 6:18am

It s the proof of truth

By al on March 21, 2013 -- 4:35am

Love it, perfect!

This was good, funny, enjoyable teaching on the reason we are alive as believing Jews.  I love this rabbincal approach in introducing the “Light” or Yeshua/Jesus and in the connection to the God of Avraham.  It also got me thinking again of taking a year off to study in Israel… something I’ve thought to do for some time.
