So last week I wrote a post called My Cousin Ken and mentioned it maybe the start of a new series here on 11213.org. Beneath the article I posted a clip by Rabbi Manis entitled Don’t Believe In G-d which you can watch by clicking here. This was Kenneth’s reaction after watching the video:
YONI, THIS IS TERRIFIC!!!!! WELL-DONE AND RESPECTFUL BY YOU FOR SURE!!! Agree with Rabbi M that logic dictates that something had to come first– whether that translates to “G-d”/”God” and whether what is written/interpreted in the Torah about Sinai can be taken as valid remain intriguing food for conversation/friendly debate!! Will def show to the rest of my family. Hope all is very good with you Yon! Ken
FYI- Kenneth emailed the post on 11213.org to a few of his friends and one of them who liked the project emailed him back this photo shopped picture of him looking quite religious 🙂
We met again last week and I decided to make this little trailer to add some context to this journey.
At the end of the video you will see that Kenneth accepted my request to put on Tefillin solely as favor to me and the furtherance of this project. As he explained to me at the time he was doing it just for me and as he put it in his own words not for seeking “a spiritual experience” which is kind of on the right track and directly links to the video below of a class I recorded in Israel a few years ago given by Rabbi Manis.
