Through our study of relevant Biblical texts and commentary that span most of Jewish History, a practical wisdom will be presented that speaks with great significance to the challenges of modern-day Israel. The Analysis will also show how certain ancient and futuristic mystical ideals provide guidance to help overcome many deep divisions in contemporary Israeli society as well in the Arab-Israeli conflict.DONATE: bit.ly/1NmpbsPLEARNING MATERIALS: http://bit.ly/2Dfx6DyFor more info, please visit:www.facebook.com/valleybeitmidrash/ twitter.com/VBMTorah www.facebook.com/farmforward www.facebook.com/RabbiShmulyYanklowitz/ www.facebook.com/temple.chaiMusic: "Watercolors" by John Deley and the 41 Players, a public domain track from the YouTube Audio Library

Sam Intrator - The Radical and Modern Approach of Ishbitz Hasidic Thought

Valley Beit Midrash

Rabbi Sam Intrator of Kavanah Life (http://www.kavanahlifesingles.com) presents his Valley Beit Midrash (www.valleybeitmidrash.org) lecture "The Radical and Modern Approach of Ishbitz Hasidic Thought" before an audience at Temple Solel (www.templesolel.org/) in Paradise Valley, AZ.ABOUT THIS LECTURE: In this podcast, Rabbi Sam Intrator explores the major themes that show how the Ishbitzer Rebbe’s ideas, while rooted in traditional sources, are radical departures from traditional interpretations. This unique school of Hasidic study offers deep psychological insights and a very modern approach to understanding human nature. It reveals both very transcendent and accessible ideas in spirituality. We will also explore the apparent rebellion of the founder of this dynasty Rabbi Mordecei Yosef against his mentor, Rabbi Menachem Mendel of Kotzk, to show how disagreements are often not a rejection of another approach but is, in fact, an expansion and development of that which is seemingly being rejected.DONATE: bit.ly/1NmpbsPLEARNING MATERIALS: http://bit.ly/2Dfp5hUFor more info, please visit: www.facebook.com/valleybeitmidrash/ www.facebook.com/templesolelaz/ twitter.com/VBMTorah www.facebook.com/RabbiShmulyYanklowitz/Music: "Watercolors" by John Deley and the 41 Players, a public domain track from the YouTube Audio Library.

Scholars in Studio

Sam Intrator, Professor of Education and Child StudyIt’s widely accepted that higher education leads to better life outcomes, yet college remains an unfulfilled hope for many young Americans. At the same time, the U.S. is falling behind much of the developed world in measures of academic achievement. Sam Intrator considers the merits of three different approaches to narrowing the achievement gap to the benefit of individuals and society.
