A Bit About Me - ראו למטה לפרטים לדוברי עברית 
Hey there! My name is Shneur, and I'm currently a Yeshiva (seminary) student working on active-listening skills and trying to help out others :). I really want to work in clinical therapy, specializing in helping individuals suffering from Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD). I personally know how devastating the disorder can be, and I want to do my part to ease the pain of those suffering from it. I'm a proud Orthodox Jew, but I'm still completely comfortable talking with anyone of any faith, or lack thereof :). I love jogging, studying the Talmud, hanging out with my friends, reading fiction novels, learning new languages, playing Settlers of Catan, and watching shows like Cobra Kai and The Crown. Looking forward to chatting with you! Feel free to leave me a message to chat or set up a time to chat :). Feel free to call me Shneur, Z, or ShneurZ - whatever you feel comfortable with! I currently speak/partially speak/am learning the following languages to some degree/fluently (I love casual chats about linguistics, so if that's an interest of yours, I'd love to hear about it!). As a result, I can provide full support in the first two languages (English and Hebrew) and minimal/technical support (such as directing you to a listener who speaks your language fluently) in the other six:
I speak English fluently! (English)
אני מדבר עברית כשפה שנייה (עברית - Hebrew)
Yo hablo un poco de Español :) (Español - Spanish)
J'apprends le Français et Je sais un petit peu! (Français - French)
איך רעד א ביסל יידיש! (יידיש - Yiddish)
Ich sprache ein bisschen Deutsch! (Deutsch - German) 
Я говорю немного Русского Языка, и я могу его читать и писать! (Русский - Russian)
Mi parolas multan Esperanton, sed ĝi ne estas flua - mi esperas ke mi baldaŭ povos uzi ĝin kun membroj kiuj parolas Esperanton :)! (Esperanto)

I specialize particularly in discussing anxiety, spirituality, student life, relationship stress, and family stress. Additionally, I am experienced in chatting about OCD as someone who has it and understands how it feels. OCD can be an extremely debilitating and frightening disorder - if you feel you might be or are suffering from OCD/obsessive thinking, I would be happy to chat about it with you :). 
שתהיה כל הפעילות שלי כאן לזכר נשמות נחמן דניאל בן אריה צבי ז"ל שנפטר יום ל"ג בעומר ה'תשפ"א ודניאל מאיר בן מרים ז"ל שנפטר בראש חודש תמוז - שיתעלו נשמותיהם בגן עדן במנוחה המתאימה לצדקותם
In Memory of Nachman Daniel ben Aryeh Tzvi z"l, who passed away on April 30th, 2021 and of Daniel Meir ben Yisrael z"l, who passed away on June 11th, 2021 - May Their Memories Be Blessed
Important Things to Keep in Mind
- You will not face judgment of any kind in our chats
- I will respect you and your feelings
- I will ensure your confidentiality - none of your details or the content of our chats will ever be traceable back to you, and you can remain 100% anonymous
- You are free to share anything and everything you like - save for expressions of bigotry and intolerance, inappropriate sexual talk, and intentionally offensive uses of language
- I will not be providing advice - this is because only you know your situation best. I can ask you guiding questions and we can work together based on them to possibly figure out a proper plan moving forward!
- I will listen to you compassionately and attentively.
- 7cups is not a crisis resource. If you are in crisis (having thoughts/intentions of suicide or are currently harming yourself), please contact crisis resources here or contact emergency services if you are in an immediate medical emergency.
- I apologize - I am not able to discuss the following issues with members: domestic abuse/violence, drug/alcohol use, and anything involving sexual topics with teen members (I am available to chat with adult members about such topics), or Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD - I am still comfortable chatting with members suffering from BPD, just that I am not available to chat specifically about it beyond a passing detail or mention. If you're in doubt, definitely feel free to message and I can let you know if I'm available for you :)).

I value you, all of you, with your strengths and weaknesses too!

Quotes I Love!
אם תירצו, אין זו אגדה - If you will it, it is no mere dream - Theodore Herzl
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat. -  President Theodore Roosevelt
Ebla estas fortecon trovi en ĉiuj el ni, iuj jam ĝin trovis, aliaj ne, sed brulas fajro en ĉiu homo ke ne neniam estingiĝos, eĉ ne povas oni ĝin senti brulanta - Strength can be found in all of us, some have found it already, others not, but a fire burns in every person which can never be extinguished, even if you can't feel it burning

 שלום וברוכים הבאים לפרופיל שלי! קוראים לי שניאור, ואני תלמיד בישיבה בארה"ב. דעו שאתם לא לבדכם למרות איך שתרגישו, מפני שאני אנסה תמיד להיות שם בשבילכם! להגיד קצת על עצמי (כדי שהשיחות שלנו יהיו רק עליכם!), אני בן 18 רגיל, לומד בישיבה ומתרגש לבלות את השנה הבאה שלי בארץ! אני יהודי דתי גאה, אבל אין זה משפיע על היכולת והנוחות שלי לדבר עם משתמשים מכל מקום, של כל דת, גזע, או מוצא - כולם מתקבלים כאן! אני מתמחה באלה התחומים הבאים: חרדה כללית, הט"כ (הפרעה טורדנית-כפייתית), רוחניות, חיי תלמיד, לחץ יחסים, ולחץ משפחה. אני יכול לשוחח איתכם על כל נושא שתירצו, אבל אני מתנצל, אני לא זמין לדבר על התעללות/אלימות במשפחה. 
הערה חשובה: כמישהו שסבל וממשיך לסבול מהפרעה טורדנית-כפייתית, אני מנוסה במיוחד בשיחות על הנושא הזה. אם אתם סובלים גם ממחשבות אובססיביות או כפיות, אני מזמין אתכם לשוחח עליהן איתי במרחב בטוח ונוח

A genuine listener who goes out of his way to make you feel comfortable and validate your experience. One of the best listeners on this platform by far. I couldn’t speak more highly of him. Sometimes all it takes is a listening ear and some kindness to set people on the right track again. This listener is proof of that 🙂
