Torah Live’s Mezuzah Presentation – A New Approach To An Ancient Mitzvah


The "Mezuzah: The Ultimate Connector” is Torah Live’s most recent DVD offering.

The "Mezuzah: The Ultimate Connector” is Torah Live’s most recent DVD offering.

In a scene in “Mezuzah: The Ultimate Connector,” Rabbi Dan demonstrates the laws of mezuzah.

“People are no longer looking for meaning. They are looking for meaningful experiences,” senior Gateways lecturer Rabbi Yonason Shippel said. Rabbi Shippel, Torah Live’s New York representative, has been licensed to present Torah Live material at Gateways seminars for both religious and secular audiences. “People are blown away by these presentations and it has had a profound impact on them.”

There are dozens of new topics on Torah Live’s horizon for the next year: Overcoming jealousy, kashrut, and berachot, among many others. “We can do any topic; there’s no end to how far we can go,” Rabbi Roth said. “The Torah has an opinion on all the issues that the world is struggling with today — not only an opinion but a deeper take that’s higher, subtler, and more profound. It’s as relevant today as ever before. Let’s translate the entire Torah into today’s language and make it available globally so that everyone can have access to our rich heritage. Armed with these tools, there’s no end to what we can accomplish.”

To purchase “Mezuzah: The Ultimate Connector” or “Sukkot: The Ultimate Shelter” or to get more information about how to bring Torah Live to your community, synagogue, or school, write to info@torahlive.com.

Question: I recently loaned money to a friend who has been able to repay only part of it. This was an interest-free loan. We exchanged a signed IOU, not a proper shtar with witnesses, since I have always trusted her integrity and only wanted a document that confirms what was loaned and what was repaid. Now that shemittah is approaching, what should I do? Should I forgive the loan? And if my friend is not able to repay it, may I deduct the unpaid money from my ma’aser requirement?

Nowadays, Jewish parents and educators must ask themselves how they can present Torah and mitzvot in a way that speaks to this generation. To many youth today, Judaism’s rich heritage seems outdated, irrelevant and boring.

When Dr. David Shashar of Ramat Gan was called out to serve in the Paratrooper reserves during the Second Lebanon War of 2006, his goal was to help heal wounded soldiers. He never thought that he would become one himself. When two Hizbullah anti-tank missiles hit the house he was staying in, killing nine soldiers, he was among the 30 to be seriously injured. Dr. Shashar was hospitalized for the next three months in an attempt to save his arm from amputation. He underwent numerous reconstruction operations over the next three years, a number of which were in Boston’s Beth Israel Hospital. The Ministry of Defense referred him to ROFEH International – a comprehensive medical referral and bikur cholim service founded by the Bostoner Rebbe, Rabbi Levi Yitzchak Horowitz, zt”l.

Rabbi Dan Roth’s very first day teaching in yeshiva did not at all go as planned. After learning in kollel for many years in some of the best yeshivos in Israel, Rabbi Roth got his first job teaching in a program for teens-at-risk. A short time before taking the job, he wrote a sefer on modern-day lessons gleaned from the teachings of Pirkei Avos. In the process of writing the book, he realized that he had a talent for making Torah concepts relevant and down-to-earth.

Last week, a quiet revolution took place in the Judean Hills outside Jerusalem. One hundred and twenty parents and children from the Former Soviet Union visited Israel for the first time to participate in a groundbreaking mission. The children, ages 12-14, were all prospective students of Lezion B’rina and its sister school Bat Zion, located in Beitar and Jerusalem, respectively. For nearly 20 years, the Lezion B’rina Institute has been a second home for hundreds of Russian Jewish students who have left their birth land to seek a better future in the Jewish homeland.
