Take Your Eyes and Ears on an Adventure!

Planning your trip to Israel can feel overwhelming. Think of this page as an e-book that will tell you everything you need to know to get started and plan your trip with confidence.

My youtube channel includes series on classical Jewish texts, explorations of fundamental issues in Judaism and Jewish and Israeli life, an hour long overview of Jewish history and much more. Take a look on youtube or watch here.

Jewish Geography was a podcast I created from 2015 through 2018 about Judaism and ‘news of the Jews’ in the Land of Israel. Together the series addresses many of the core issues facing Jews and Israel today, religious, political and personal. No punches pulled.

Pirkei Avot is a book of the Mishnah, the Oral Torah, which takes millenia of rabbinic wisdom and condenses it into a few pages. In this series I will be unpacking that deep wisdom for you and giving it over in roughly five minute, easy to digest, segments. I will give an introduction and then explain the meaning of the text, often including the commentary of the Rambam.
