An Exciting New Initiative

There is nothing I love more than being part of initiatives that bring Jews together.

The Internet is a tool, that when used correctly, can do just that. The good people at Afikim have put together a system wherein thousand of Jews can interact and study Torah together. This Sunday, Tisha B’Av, I will have the privilege of being part of a beta seminar which you too can tune in to. Scroll down and join the crowd!

Project Sinai is beta testing their new and exciting technology that will allow us to deliver regular live and fully interactive classes that allow you the viewer to participate in the class with me directly.

Note that not all the links on Project Sinai are active as of yet.

Thanks for participating with us.  We look forward to your feedback.
