"Whenever there is a cover photo of a distinguished Jew, or even of any yirei Shamayim, I am proud. Proud to read such a publication and proud to belong to this special nation. Since it’s inevitable that Mishpacha might end up on the Shabbos table, I feel that at least there should be a refined cover photo”

"It was interesting to note that in most of the article’s scenarios, the suffering family member succeeded in using the nisayon as a means to build her emunah and grow stronger, enlarging her capacity to experience strong, opposing feelings simultaneously, while the celebrating family member seemed stuck in guilt. It’s important to recognize that guilt is a trap that blocks us from being fully able to enjoy the gifts Hashem has given us, and thus prevents us from growing. May we all be zocheh to celebrate abundant blessings in our lives"
