For the past few years our Shavuot eve dinner and learning has been one of the seasonal highlights. A delicious dairy meal and fine wines frame an evening of insightful presentations by our own Beit Chaverim members. Will this be the year that YOU make a short presentation? As always, Rabbi Wall will provide resources and support to all who wish to present, and for first timers, a gentle hand holding from inspiration to delivery. Curious? Contact Rabbi Wall to discuss a topic.

When you view people from the outside, sizing then up externally, you will always find someone more beautiful, more intelligent, funnier or more successful. But when you look at someone on the inside, when you look at their true self, their soul, you will never find anyone who can compare. And if you let people see your soulthen they will never find anyone who can compare to you.


Rabbi David Aaron

Rabbi Aaron, who founded Isralight in 1986, is a visionary educator and author. His books, which have been published by major publishing houses including Random House and Putnam, have reached more than 200,000 people worldwide. He has taught thousands of students and reached millions through appearances on programs including Larry King Live and E! Entertainment.

Rabbi Aaron received Semicha from the Israel Torah Research Institute, Yeshivat Itri, and is a disciple of the distinguished Dayan Rav Shlomo Fischer, Shlita. He lives in Jerusalem with his wife, Chana, and their seven children.

Learning with Rabbi Aaron is both profoundly moving and entertaining. People at every level of spiritual knowledge and practice enjoy the adventure of peeking around the corners of mystical ideas. Finding answers to our big questions begins a process that is life–changing.

Beneath Rabbi Aaron’s light-hearted playfulness is a mature, sophisticated and holistic understanding of Torah, well-grounded in classic and Chassidic sources. Torah Scholars, scientists and psychologists alike have marveled at the profundity of his comprehensive systematic thinking.

Rabbi David Aaron asks - Aren't the Torah's Claims of Miracles Outrageous?

Rabbi David Aaron - Relevance of Shul

A one minute video addressing "Do you really expect me to believe those outrageous stories of miracles? "

Watch at the least the first 10 minutes of this great talk on "Why should I go to Shul?"

Isn't it about time we refer to G-d as "She"?

Thank God for Atheism
