Shalom everyone:)
Thnx for keeping up the blog with educational and practical suggestions.
I personally have hit a wall / ceiling in my yiddishkeit.
The "facts" in the post are correct yet that approach feels so stark , cold and pretty much unrealistic to accept and be happy about embracing life on that level.
I think it's essential to have fun intellectually , spiritually and emotionally and I see alot of burn out in observant brothers and sisters and all of a sudden I am in that group as well.
Accepting the "facts" as stated above is like saying u as a Jew/ jewess don't have a right to be human and have feelings or the physiological effects from life's circumstances.
Then add on all the restrictions and elimination of pretty much everything other than what's approved by the rabbis and I am left with only davening and stagnation from not being able to do anything enjoyable.
This of course is only my perspective as a woman who really enjoys life and feels so frustrated jewishly at the moment.
Freilickin Purim everyone :)

Addendum
-if I agree with the blog and accept Hashem is showing mercy by imprisoning yonaton Ben Malka , shalom mordechai ha Levi Ben Rivka , Wendy Runge to name a few members of our nation then how is it merciful for us a nation to just chill an go on with our lives and write it off to gam zu l'tova ?
Emuna? Doesn't make sense . How does anyone know what Hashem wants from us a nation?
~I'm mixed up today wondering what my personal mission is~
All the best

Addendum 2
Today we r encouraged to recite psalm 22 seven times. I started early this morning and I'm just about to recite my seventh.
I think my previous posts were me searching for where do I put my geographic loyalty : USA or Israel -- both countries have large Jewish populations yet the future is totally uncertain in the USA and in Israel the challenge seems to be the impact of living in a Jewish country amongst large numbers of Jews who "are not shomer mitzvot" .
So while I'm internalizing psalm 22 it becomes completely obvious life is really challenging and Hashem for sure is merciful and I'm going to keep praying for the opportunity to have the courage to take the leap of faith and relocate to to Israel based on a foundation of emuna rather than fear.
All the best!
