Thirty years ago, the BBC aired an amazing documentary about a man who paid employees extra on holidays, saying that at that time of year employees need more money – not less. The impact and Kiddush Hashem generated by the film were tremendous.
This special man is someone who I am lucky enough to call Zeide (grandpa in Yiddish).
Torah Live is proud to release a new presentation that will appeal to an entirely new audience.
A special thank you to Mrs. Sara Schreiber (my grandmother), Ms. Judy Schreiber, (my mother), Graham and Ruthie Morris and David and Ruthie Schreiber (my uncles and aunts) for sponsoring Man Management: The Ultimate Bridge and allowing me to spread Mr. Chaim Schreiber’s’ great legacy.
The complete teacher’s edition of this presentation is available for purchase here.
Thank God, we are making a bar-mitzvah this Shabbos. In honor of the occasion, we will be releasing a new six-part series on the meaning and laws of tefillin.
Above is the first one, which is about how tefillin are made. You have permission to share this video with all your friends, on you blog.
May we share many simchos together!
For your viewing pleasure, highlights from our Brachot presentation. Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
Above are pictures of our Mezuzah film being shown full screen to beginners in the Aish Kirk Douglas Theatre!
Here are a few of the comments people wrote:
“Very informative, well presented with clean graphics. Overall, very well done!”
“The final explanation that the Mezuzah is a way to show that man is at the centre of the universe is worth showing and sharing. Please continue to show this film.”
“Very informative. The 3d imaging was cool and showed a great visual perspective.”
S'dei Chemed 2012
Rabbi Roth gave a Torah Live presentation at Camp S’dei Chemed this week. The audience loved it and responded with a big ovation. Max Lent, a participant, immediately e-mailed the principal of his school, HAFTR, recommending they use our material.
Mezuzah: The Ultimate Connector for iPad is now available on the iTunes App Store.
We’re giving away the first 1000 copies free!
Here’s an early look at a segment from our upcoming presentation “Man Management: The Ultimate Bridge”, generously sponsored by the Schreiber family in memory of Mr. Chaim Schreiber.
Packed with stunning footage, great humor, and lots of energy, Utensils: The Ultimate Adventure contains a fascinating blend of historical perspectives and practical halachic guidance. Follow us on camel back as we drive through the desert, up Masada, and into the Dead Sea to learn the laws of immersing new utensils.
This film is available to purchase on disc or via instant streaming. The purchase price is a one time fee that provides lifetime access to the film, and a source notes text (PDF) is included as well. To enjoy now, choose the version that suits your needs. You won’t be disappointed!

Here are some pictures from the reading of the megillah at Mathilda Marks Kennedy Jewish Primary School, with Torah Live Stunning Megillah slideshow.
Miss E. Chody, Jewish Studies teacher at the school, comments, “It was fantastic! Really added, thank you so much.”
Above are pictures of 350 students enjoying our Purim material in Aussie.
Ryan Baserrabie wrote, “The megilla went down brilliantly. i have never seen the kids so engaged and quiet. Inexplicable success. “
Will post more Purim pictures soon as I get them!
With gratitude to the Almighty, it gives me great pleasure to share with you the exciting news that Michael and Bettina Bradfield are sponsoring a multimedia Torah Live presentation in memory of Susi and Fred Bradfield on the topic of leadership.
Michael requested that we conduct market research to determine that there would be demand for such a presentation. The results of our research are posted above: NCSY (Birthright),UJIA, TRIBE, Meor, National Jewish Outreach Program, Aish, SEED, JLE, Maimonidies, and other major educational organizations all recommending the project.
Thank you Conrad Morris for the kind introduction.
If you have good ideas or sources on this topic, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Click the document below for full size version.
The Torah Live Stunning Megillah, approved by Rabbi Yitzchak Berkovits of the Jerusalem Kollel and Rabbi Yisroel Reisman, Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshiva Torah Vodaath and Rav of Agudath Israel of Madison, Brooklyn NY, will soon be available for quick and easy purchase via download.
+Each slide will have the verse in Hebrew and English along with a picture (see sample above). There will be 167 slides (that’s how many verses there are!) and 42 pictures. (i.e. each group of 4 or 5 verses will share the same picture)
I took the kids to Yad Eliezer to pack food packages for people in need. As you see from the pictures we all had a really great time and can’t wait to do it again.This got me thinking….
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to make a presentation on the mitzvah of chesed and loving your fellow Jew? We need it now more than ever!
It could include video interviews with people who have excelled in this field, as well as inspiring stories, fascinating sources, and ideas of how we can all do more.
Our team of highly talented animators, 3d artists, cinematographers, special effects artists, and script writers have a track record of producing original and very creative material.
The Sages tell us that those who cause others to do kindness are greater in some ways than those who do kindness themselves. Please consider getting involved in the creation of this presentation, and leave your suggestions in the comments section below.
We thought it quite funny to see Yossie Weiss, one of the Torah Live staff members, drowning in all the mail from the over fifty teachers that signed up this week to get the Mezuzah presentation educators kit.
This sudden surge of demand is the result of Torah Live’s new partnership with NJOP to make its material available to a broader audience.
Thank you Michael and Karine Bloch of Raanana for sponsoring the DVD in honor of their children: Eitan, Yoel, and Tali. Michael was not only the brainchild behind the creation of the DVD but is also the one who introduced our work to Rabbi Ephraim Buchwald, director of NJOP and made this partnership happen.
Best caption for this picture gets the Mezuzah DVD for FREE! Congratulations to Ilan and Simone Goldstein who won last month’s free Mezuzah DVD.
PS. If your organization or someone you know wants to partner with Torah Live to distribute the material, we have a sponsor who is willing to chip in in a major way to make the cost almost free to participating outreach and educational organizations.
I’m amused and somewhat embarrassed at the sheer number of doughnuts that disappeared yesterday at the first ever Torah Live staff get-together. Below are some photos you might want to check out….
But first, with 50,899 views so far and counting, view Torah Live’s “Against All Odds” video which will help you experience Chanukah in a new light. (There are seven more when you finish watching that one!)
Wishing you a beautiful and meaningful Chanukah, Rabbi Dan Roth.
