One Response to “Ep. 232: How Do You Explain the Blessing of “She’lo Osani Isha”?”

  1. Mordechai

    I agree with you that the optimum way would be to turn to a mashpia for emotional help. As I’ve seen throughout the past few years different physiologists and although some of them helped me, it was sometimes hard for them to relate to our mentality and culture.

    My question is, why don’t mashpim receive some training in these areas? I’ve found that often they are oblivious to the situation or there advice isn’t practical.

    Secondly, why in the yeshivois is chassidus taught as a pure haskola and the goal of the mashpia to soaly teach you a diyuk or peshat in the mamer? (Please don’t get me wrong, this in its own right is very valuable, however) if in chassidus is all the answers to these issues, then they should be addressed and taught.

    I’m turning to you in regards to these questions, as you are someone who is respected and influential in our community and I hope I properly articulated my questions.

    Thank you,
