Challenge accepted! This week, DL Lavin (Canada, Central East, New York NCSY and TJJ) takes us through some major figures of Jewish history from Avraham Avinu and Queen Esther to Jerry Seinfeld and the Shabbos Project, to teach us an important lesson; it may be a big step, but it will go a long way!
What do tefillin, King David, and Usher have in common? Dov Pianko, Upstate New York NCSY & Central East TJJ, looks four important kinds of people mentioned in this week’s parsha, as well as a deeper look into the mitzvah of tefillin, to teach us how to fight our daily battles.
Are you living for this world or for the next? Ari Zucker, advisor for NJ NCSY and TJJ, tells us about Bilaam’s prayer and a life-changing story from the Gemara, and teaches us how to live life to the fullest.
What do basketball, davening doctors, and this week’s parsha have in common? This week, Willie Balk, former TJJ advisor, advisor for the Midwest, West Coast, and Northwest NCSY regions, and Central East alum, teaches us how to enjoy life, infuse it with holiness, and make the small things add up.
It’s all about R-E-S-P-E-C-T!! Chaim Strassman, advising coordinator for Central East NCSY and an upcoming TJJ bus director, shares with us an approach to relationships that we can learn from just two words in this week’s parsha.
