Torah Live’s second Yom Iyun, held at Yeshivat Mevaseret Zion, was a smashing success. (First Yom Iyun post here.) Boys spent the morning studying many inspirational ideas related to charity and then enjoyed an in-depth multimedia presentation on the topic. The event made a lasting impression on the students, many of whom took upon themselves to give ten percent to charity. To book the Torah Live Yom Iyun experience for your school, write to email@example.com
Comments from the students:
“It was just 100%! Never realized how intricate the topic was.”
“Loved the audio visual.”
“Entertaining and informative.”
Rabbi Roth was invited to the Mir a third time, where he presented “Home Alone” on hilchos yichud to Rabbi Yisrael Stilerman’s group. Feedback from the attendees:
“Clear, entertaining, incredible.”
“Really great. Learned all the halachos in a way that made it seem so simple.” – Mendel Florans
“Embarrassingly, I learned a lot of halachos that even as a ben torah, didn’t fully know before. Can’t wait for the next presentation.”
Today was one of the most thrilling days of my whole life and marks a new era for Torah Live. Although we’ve given the charity presentation [click for video overview] many times with incredible results, this was the first time participants had the opportunity to really live the topic by first spending the morning learning related sources. You can see the results for yourself by clicking on the play button in the above video. Why not let your students enjoy the Yom Iyun experience? They will thank you forever. Satisfaction guaranteed!

Lev Hatorah 1
Rabbi Dan Roth’s presentation of the Home Alone – Hilchos Yichud lecture was warmly received this week by the enthusiastic faculty and talmidim of Lev Hatorah. One student commented, “The presentation gave a great overview of yichud for one who had no previous knowledge of the matter, or someone who was [already] knowledgeable.” Another said, “It was extremely informative. Please come back and teach us more!”
Here’s what Shoshana Mitrani, one of the students, had to say: What did you think of todays presentation? “Thorough, organized, interesting, relevant, speaker was well spoken!” How can it be improved? “It was perfect!” When could you use these presentations in your school? “All the time! (I’m a big fan)

Torah Live gave its first talk to JEWEL this morning. Bridging the culture gap between LA and Jerusalem is no small feat and yet these ladies have taken it in their stride. It was inspiring to meet such a highly motivated group of students and I hope the lessons we learned from the 4 animals in the Crossing the Finish Line help you reach your dreams. Keep learning and growing!

“The presentation was well made and the audio visuals were terrific. They helped illustrate the point beautifully. Aish LA would greatly benefit from your presentation.” Sola Rose Malka
It was a true privilege to give the charity presentation today to such a distinguished group of people as the avreichim in the Mir. One of the beauties of the presentation is the ease with which it can be tweaked to suit each audiences needs, and today’s event was no exception. Yet another version was created – the 11th version to date!

Recently, Rabbi Roth delivered the Mezuza presentation at the Mir, Yerushalayim. Apparently, people were still talking about the halachos over lunch and several went home and changed the position of their mezuzos. Here’s the feedback we got from Rabbi Yisrael Stilerman, the Rosh Chaburah:
“The presentation was amazing! I asked the guys about the presentation and they said they were inspired, entertained, and gained a lot from it! They were specifically amazed by the technology! They want to know, what’s the next topic and when? I personally appreciate the time, energy, and resource that you put into presenting a complete package! I know and see just a little bit of what you have to do, to get where it is. Amazing! Amazing!”
