Tomer Devora Nosei Avon
Rabbi Haber expounds on Rabbi Moshe Cordovero’s first topic in this seminal work, that of the concept and the meaning of the phrase: Who can possibly be comparable to Hashem מי אל כמוך.
For generations it has been the custom of Tzadikim and their students to study Tomer Devorah during the month of Elul. In this seminal work, the great Kabbalist Rav Moshe Cordevaro takes us on a deep introspective journey to the depths of our personalities and the essence of our souls. Join Rav Yaacov Haber as he leads the journey within.
Rabbi Haber, with the Sources of Rabbi Tzadok HaKohen, Rashi, the Ramban, the Abarbanel and R. Hirsch, masterfully brings us through the question of whether Sefer Devarim were the words of Moshe Rabbeinu or whether they were the Words of Hashem! A fascinating revelation!
Rabbi Haber, with the scalpel of Rabbi Tzadok HaKohen, performs surgery on the connection between the First Tablets and the Second Tablets to X-Ray the connection between Torah B’Ktav and Torah Shel BaPeh. It’s a masterful procedure that you won’t want to miss.
Rabbi Haber has been a leading force in Jewish Outreach for the past 25 years. A founding trustee of AJOP, the Association of Jewish Outreach Professionals, he was the founder and director of the Torah Center of Buffalo from 1980-1990 while serving as a community rabbi in Buffalo. From Buffalo he and his family traveled to Melbourne, Australia where as a project of Kollel Bais HaTalmud he founded the Australian Institute of Torah, a national outreach and adult education program. He directed that program from 1990-1995, at which time he was sought out as National Director of Jewish Education for the Orthodox Union in the United States where he created the Internationally acclaimed and highly successful "Pardes Project."
In addition to his duties at the OU, in 1996 he replaced Rabbi Berel Wein as the spiritual leader of Congregation Bais Torah in Monsey, NY. In keeping with the position of Congregation Bais Torah in the Monsey community, Rabbi Haber was involved in issues involving the greater Monsey community, and counseled hundreds of individuals in the surrounding area.
