comment Is the way of the torah pleasant or painful?
@CharlesKoppelman I'm not the one making the dichotomy, the mishna is. If the torah is both of these things let the mishna (or a pasuk) say so.

@MonicaCellio I'm going to go with the latter see for example finkorswim.com/2009/07/28/… (and I personally know they have a few of these in 'the 'burg' as well.

comment Hand movements when lighting shabbat candles
I think the first part actually answers a different question (why do women cover their eyes after lighting). I'm not familiar with the chabad source (ner shabbat ch. 13). but perhaps there is more information there as to why that motion and why 3 times etc.
