With life as hectic as it is and with the many responsibilities that we all have, it is sometimes tough to get out to the classes, or sometimes there is just a nicer feel or more personal touch when you do it on your own turf or space with your friends or family. For this reason we offer to bring Torah Classes and Discussions to your home and office. 

Choose from any topic, invite your friends, the Rabbi does the rest.
