There’s so much going on I can hardly keep up! The Ten From The Nations book is working exactly as I hoped it would – as a platform to have (often sensitive and difficult) conversations around what’s going on with the worldwide Torah awakening.
Last week, I made the first Torah School for the Nations video in which I introduced the way Torah study is approached by traditional Jewish people. This humble 4-minute video ignited a fire on Facebook, upset a lot of people from the Nations who disputed nearly every claim I made and got me blocked from two Hebrew Roots Facebook groups.
At the same time, I received plenty of heart-warming feedback from people who encouraged me to continue making these videos. This video has been watched over 900 times on Facebook. It’s also been uploaded to YouTube. If you can’t see the thumbnail below, click here to watch the 4-minute video.
I’ll be posting new content on Facebook and I also opened a new YouTube channel to reach those who aren’t on Facebook. Please click here to subscribe to my YouTube channel and you’ll be notified whenever there’s a new video posted.
I also added some new content to the website in response to frequent questions I get from people who aren’t sure which resources are good to start learning authentic Torah. I put together this guide to help.
Finally, on February 7, there was a Ten From The Nations book talk and presentation held at Hub Etzion in Gush Etzion, Israel. I shared the podim with Gidon Ariel of Root Source, Rabbi Ari Abramowitz of The Land of Israel Network and Tommy Waller of HaYovel. The full video runs an hour and 42 minutes. My part starts at one minute in and I speak for just under 20 minutes. Special thanks to Shannon Nuszen for her help with this video and to Rachel Moore of Hub Etzion for hosting the event.
In my talk, I mentioned an article I had just written about Rabbi Yitzchak Ginsburgh’s call to the Jewish people to teach Torah to the Nations. You can read the article on Breaking Israel News here.
