Drumroll…

22/05/2012


Just got back from NY where I gave a workshop at the Torah U’Mesorah convention and wanted to share with you how far Torah Live is spreading: I was in Woodmere standing outside a 7-11 on Sunday morning, when a 10 year old kid comes over and asks if I am Dan Roth. Turns out his class had watched the Mezuzah DVD and learned all the halachos from it!

Thank you Michael and Karine Bloch for first suggesting the idea of putting our material on DVD over a year ago. You generously sponsored the project and the fruits of your kindness are spreading all over the world.

There’s an incredible write up about Torah Live in this weeks Mishpacha by Jonathan Rosenblum including 32,500 DVD’s delivered to every Mishpacha reader worldwide!

Thank you Yonason Perl, Rabbi Issamar Ginzberg, Eliyahu Rubinovich, Gavriel Horan, and Nomee Shaingarten who all had a direct hand in making it happen.

A special thank you to Conrad, Ruth, David and Karine Morris for their gracious support with Torah Live.

It is only through the wonderful people I am fortunate to be surrounded with and the graciousness of Hashem that Torah Live has merited the incredible success it has had to date.

Wishing you all a wonderful Yom Tov,
Dan Roth
