1 of my cousins is currently serving in the IDF as Lone Soldier and his older brother served as a Lone Soldier in 2010-2013.
Love the content that this channel puts out. Very underrated in my opinion. Kudos to you for sharing the history, context of customs/rituals and the struggles of Jews across centuries.
Love and respect from India.
Seventh Day Adventist (a flavor of Christian) here. Your entire Unpacked channel is really great. Fantastically informative and obviously authentic.

Should you talk to that
Should you talk to that girl you are interested in meeting and make a move when you are not sure whether she is interested?
Thanks a lot! Having someone quote a famous philosopher in connection with my videos is an ultimate compliment!
Sure, my pleasure.
brilliant. going to try it out tmrrw!! sooo nervous!! and hmm, as wrong as this sounds, this reminds me of Hitler and his policy... one of his men once said 'it is better to make mistakes while interferring rather than not intrferring at all' or something along those lines... his men were punished more severely for being IDLE and not doing anythin!! haha, wow, what a parallel.... :P keep up the great work!!
