Stories, stories, stories! How can so much happen to one man? Gutman Locks the 'Mitzvah Man' was blessed with the will and the opportunity to go out and bring a little G-dliness to people through wrapping Tefillin on them, and increasing their mitzvoth. But it wasn't always that way for him. Locks, himself, has traveled through the spiritual spectrum. Born a Jew, he was raised secular, entered the hippie scene, and fell into eastern religions. After a long spiritual journey, he came home to the Torah, and until this day is a frum Jew who stands at the Western Wall in Jerusalem and helps other Jews with tefillin, Shabbat meals, and helping them find their path to G-d. His colorful stories that span the globe can be found in his inspiring book,  "Coming Back To Earth ". HIGHLY recommended for Jews and Gentiles, this book will have you taking out the Kleenex to wipe sentimental tears, as well as having you slap your knees from the belly laughs you are guaranteed to have as well. It's a book you will want to loan out afterwards to all your friends.
(This is a re-broadcast of an interview from 2006)
