To Rabbi Zalman Phillips
We would like to thank you and give you loads of Hakoras hatov for your amazing website jewishbedtimestories.com. You have recorded and uploaded (and keep recording and uploading) so many beautiful stories and parts of Tanach. They are all clearly recorded, and so many of them have important lessons in Yidishkeit that you try to emphasize.
My kids (ages 2-9) love listening to them! It has become part of their regular routine as they go to bed. They decide on which story to begin with, but first they ask to check if there are any new recordings they hadn’t listened to yet…
I feel that this is such an easy and positive way for them to learn so many parts of Tanach, as well as to become filled with so many stories of the Rabei’im and Tzadikim which is so important for creating a strong foundation in Yidishkeit.
Please continue with your amazing work, and Hashem should bentch you to have lot’s of success b’gashmiyus ub’ruchniyus!
