Jonnie Schnytzer
Words of the Righteous and People in Love
We treat words as the most taken-for-granted commodity in the world, yet Judaism holds that words are the most precious commodity in the world. Words have the power to create and can also be very destructive. Jonnie Schnytzer proposes a framework for leveraging the weight of our words in the world by avoiding Lashon Hara.

Ilana Kurshan
If All the Seas Were Ink: Daf Yomi, the practice of learning a page of Talmud per day
The rabbis teach that even if all the heavens were parchment, and all the forests quills, and all the seas were ink, it would be impossible to grasp the entirety of Torah. Yet embracing regular Torah study can enrich our lives, even as our lives enrich our learning. In this ELI talk, Ilana Kurshan shares her experience with Daf Yomi, the practice of learning a page of Talmud every day.

Each video is approximately 15 minutes in length. A brief discussion will following each video.
