Do something for yourself & the world during the pandemic.
Pirkei Avot 1:2
עַל שְׁלֹשָׁה דְּבָרִים (הָעוֹלָם עוֹמֶד:) עַל הַתּוֹרָה, וְעַל הַעֲבוֹדָה וְעַל גְּמִילוּת חֲסָדִים.
On three things is the world sustained: learning Torah, prayer, and acts of kindness.
“Ein Segulah KaTorah” – there is no segulah as great as Torah learning. During troubled times, people often look for segulos – spiritual shortcuts – of all kinds, or simply feel completely powerless and depressed, shut in at home. But actually, we can all make a difference. Harness the powerful merit of Torah study for yourself, a loved one, or the world at large. While we know that it is hard not to remain glued to the news during this crisis, we encourage you to take a moment, to do something to elevate yourself, and the entire world!
Upcoming Online & Phone-In Learning
