Torah Talks - Show Me the Way
How to Give Really Good Advice “If people wanted your unsolicited advice, they’d ask for it,” is just one quip of many about the albatross of bad advice. So how do we avoid this and actually be of help to those who need us? A closer look at the Torah’s treatment of the tragic case of the inadvertent killer shows us how.

Character over Conflict - Lesson 1
DON’T BRING REASON TO AN EGO FIGHT From Cain and Abel to your inconsiderate brother-in-law. For time immemorial, people have butted heads with one another. At times with good reason, more often with irrationality and short-sightedness. In this class, we will search for the essence and strength of strife, and discuss how to get unstuck from its pull utilizing the paths of peace given to us by the Torah.

Character over Conflict - Lesson 2
WHAT’S MINE IS WHOSE? What is so bad about someone who says, “What’s mine is mine, and what’s yours is yours.” Who is the mystery “group” that helped G-d create the earth? In this class, we will look at the clothes on your back, the cycle of humanity that makes the world tick, why we need others to exist, how to extract fire from water, and how you can connect with people who are the antithesis of yourself.

Torah Talks - When Everything Finally “Clicks”
No More “In One Ear, Out the Other” It can take a lifetime to really “get” something, but when you do, it’s a whole different experience. A lesson about sound effects—or the lack thereof—teaches us what it means to experience real Judaism—and by extension, how to be a real person in every area of life.

Torah Talks - Don’t Begin with the Basics
Jewish Life Begins with the Loftiest Ideas—and That’s Fine Beginning with a story when a Rebbe chased an imposter from his office, this class quickly brings us into an important discussion about religious instruction and every person’s approach to their own faith. And it’s all captured in one little word, “ekev—heel.”

MIND OVER ANGER
The search for the soul is on, and not to give too much away, but it's not where you'd think it is. In this class, we will deconstruct the functions of the heart and mind, and explain how they relate to connecting to G-d and running the body. We will meet our inner ministers, and they're celestial counterparts, and finally understand the secret path to resolving conflict and building stronger relationships.

Torah Talks - The Gift of Dignity
