Torah Talks - Sing Your Song
Listening to the Unique Rhythm of Every Single Day A year, a month, or even a week is arguably consequential. But a day? A day is but a mere blip on the radar, gone before one can think! The Levites’ songs in the Temple and our memorialization of them in the morning prayers forcefully argue to the contrary: every day is an entirely new tune.

We’re Getting There

Judaism sees all of history as one connected journey toward a single desired destiny. In this lesson, we look back to identify four distinct epochs that show us how far we’ve traveled on the way to a truly good world.

Torah Talks - The Age-Old Balance of Individualism vs. Collectivism
An Audacious Argument to Find Yourself in the Location Least Expected It’s a struggle of identity that has challenged humanity since the beginning of time: How do we maintain our unique individuality while identifying with the broader community? Many years ago, the veteran sage Hillel presented a bold answer while discussing the laws of the Passover sacrifice, and we’re privileged to explore it still.

Out of the Blues

So, will we wake up one day in a glorious wonderland? Or is the Redemption more of a gradual process? Let’s study the sources on the actual transition from our reality today into a world of revelation.

Torah Talks - The Imperative to Reach Out and Help Another
Can We Sacrifice Personal Morals to Help Another' Juggling personal morals and values with the need to help another is a thorny ethical dilemma. Taking a closer look at the Torah’s juxtaposition of two random events makes one thing very clear: staying in your own comfort zone is not an option.

Torah Talks - Aim High
Emulating Korach's Noble Intentions For too long, Korach has been perceived as a one-dimensional villain. This class argues that there’s much to learn from his intentions. After all, there’s something to say about someone who has a passionate drive to connect with the Divine. Ask yourself: Does a lack of G-d in your life make YOU cry?

Torah Talks - A Rational Mind Is Great. It's Also Extremely Limiting
Why Logic Alone Is Not Enough It’s wonderful, even necessary, to understand and appreciate religion. But just as you don’t love your spouse, your children, or your parents strictly because it makes sense, so it is with G-d: to really enjoy the relationship, your commitment must run faith-deep. Discover this idea in the obscure laws of the red heifer.
