This has been a pretty good time period of Jewish people being recognized for the derech eretz and for doing things that bring honor to God's name and to the reputation of the Jewish people. While the IDF forces in the Philippines were doing their outstanding work following the devastating typhoon there, two others, Isaac Theil and Rabbi Noach Muroff, were adding luster to the Jewish name. All of them get derech eretz awards on today's show. I close with the reading of a beautiful prayer of thanks to God for all that he gives us and also for all that he withholds from us. 
Wishing all a happy Chanukah and a meaningful Thanksgiving and a great week,

Be in touch at and keep that Derech Eretz thing going, my friends, shalom!
