My PEP Graduation Dvar Torah

Posted on June 12, 2012 by Esther DuBow

By Esther DuBow, PEP ’12 Daniel Weinreb, you are truly a scholar and a gentleman and having you as a colleague these past two years has been wonderful.

Siyyum by Rabbi Daniel Landes

Posted on November 2, 2010 by Eryn

Rabbi Steinsaltz’s great siyyum teaches a wonderful lesson.  Siyyum means completion. We are often accustomed to think of learning as some endless process which leads to more learning.  But siyyum means that we are to learn something so well that we are able to say – we have “completed” it.  This is the notion of Kinyan Torah – acquiring Continue Reading »

Although presumably no one knew in advance exactly what our Rosh Yeshiva was Continue Reading »
