"Sunsetting" TheTisch

Shalom Everyone,

For the past 19 years (!!), I've been honored to share Torah and updates with "TheTisch," a YahooGroup. In the coming months, YahooGroups will begin gradually closing down most of its functionality, and so TheTisch will sunset along with the times. 

Luckily, there are other ways for us to remain connected! On my website,, you can find much of my material, including books, music, and videos. You can follow me on Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, and much of the Torah originally shared through TheTisch has been incorporated into two of my books: What Does it Mean? (2013) and Intense Beginnings (2014), both available via Amazon. My most recent album, Olam Chesed (2015) is available on Amazon and iTunes.

And there's always the deepest joy of actually seeing each other! I love serving as Scholar in Residence around the country, and will be visiting the following communities in the coming months:

Friends, TheTisch began as a way of connecting the college students I led on Birthright Israel in Dedember, 1999, sharing a weekly thought with a beautiful group of souls. It's grown and grown, and I'm grateful to have been able to share a holy journey with you all. I'll continue distributing my writings through this email list until it no longer functions, but hope we'll find ways of remaining connected outside of its platform as well!

Kol Tuv - all my best!

Recent Releases! Inside Edition, JCPA, and!

Dear Friends,

What a time we've been granted - I pray you and those you love are well. I'm thrilled to be both deeply engaged in my work at UJA-Federation, the National Gun Violence Prevention Taskforce at JFNA, and also on the National Gun Violence Prevention Taskforce of the JCPA. We have much to do to save each other's lives, and the urgency only grows. May the need decrease and the passionate concern for each other's welfare increase, soon and in our days.

Perhaps I'll be blessed to see some of you in Toronto next Shabbat/Sunday, either at Holy Blossom or at Limmud, CA! In the meantime,  Here are some of the recent projects I've released:

What is Rosh HaShannah?  

What is Yom Kippur? 

Gun Violence Through a Jewish Lens -  

The Tower of Babel and The Myth of Unity (Parashat Noach) -  

Shabbat Shalom!
