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

@ Her Majesty’s Treasury

22/12/2010

Rabbi Roth was invited back to H. M. Treasury once again. [view post from first visit here] This time he gave the Mezuza Presentation…

“An engaging & enjoyable treatment of Mezuzah from the basics to the very detailed.  A polished multimedia presentation with the more in-depth sections giving rise to so much discussion (especially on who to buy kosher mezuzot from!)” – Mark Shackman

“Although I have lots of big Mezuzot all round my house, I learned a lot from the presentation. I especially liked the “traditional” ideas/ Hashkafah anecdotes. More generally, I liked the “camera work” and how you film the text from the Torah in a modern dynamic way, making the text spring to life, so to speak.” – Jonathan Gershlick

improved? “It can’t! It was terrific.”
