New Judaism Website
From "About Us:"
Jewish learning is emerging as a powerful force in contemporary culture, fostering identity and unity among Jews. Yesterday’s challenge was to get people interested in Jewish learning. Today we must also find new and creative ways to service those that already are. Under the guidance of Rabbi Yaacov Haber, TorahLab is bringing together educational and media specialists to create dynamic learning experiences for adults of all backgrounds and levels. These outstanding programs, ideal for school curriculum and home study, form an exciting new approach to Jewish learning.. The TorahLab curriculum will present a comprehensive course of study for exploring the breadth and depth of Judaism.
THE SUBJECT AREAS INCLUDE:
The founder and driving force behind TorahLab is Rabbi Yaacov Haber. Rabbi Haber is an expert in adult Jewish education, and replaced Rabbi Berel Wein as the spiritual leader of Congregation Bais Torah in Monsey, NY. As the former National Director of Jewish Education for the Orthodox Union, he created the highly successful "Pardes Project." Rabbi Haber is the founder of the Australian Institute of Torah and the Torah Center of Buffalo. He is also one of the founding members of AJOP, the Association of Jewish Outreach Professionals. Rabbi Haber has published numerous articles and books and is a sought after international lecturer.
