Parshah in Just Two Minutes! Concise Summaries of the Weekly Parshah by Rabbi Eliyahu Shear

Throughout the years, I had seen the average parshah sheet that would be handed out in shul, but it just did not provide the fullness of the parshah I felt so many needed.

Since then I have completed my research and been awarded a doctorate for my biography on Olga Kirsch.

A Modern Aliyah - straight from the plane into a new business and private dental practice

Sometimes you have to do something crazy to create something remarkable.

For nearly 30 years, Dr. Abbe Kellner-Kutno has dreamed of moving to Israel. She grew up in a Zionist home, influenced by her parents and grandparents with reinforcement from her active involvement with Young Judaea.
