WallersteinRabbiZecharia cropWe are pleased to add a new video to our website this week: 

Rabbi Zechariah Wallerstein presents an analysis of how we can get past ourselves to see the world as it is and others as they are.  Using Rabbi Wallerstein's three mental exercises when faced with an emotional situation can help us develop this positive trait, repair personal relationships, and even enhance much of the world.

Rabbi Wallerstein's presentation was shown at The Adams Street Shul on the Fast of Av, Sunday July 26th of 2015, as part of The Chofetz Chaim Heritage Foundation's 2015 worldwide Tisha B'av video event, entitled The Power to Yield.  

The Adams Street Shul presents this video online by the kind permission of the Chofetz Chaim Heritage Foundation.

WallersteinZechariah Ohr NaavaRabbi Wallerstein is the founder of Ohr Yitzchak, Ateres Naava Seminary for Girls, and Ohr Naava Women's Institute in Brooklyn, NY.  Ohr Naava is a unique program designed for women ages seventeen through 120 who are interested in furthering their Torah experience. 

The program started out as a Wednesday evening class in a small classroom.  It brought together girls who had just returned from studying in Israel, college students who needed a weekly moment of inspiration, and Jews of different backgrounds but with one common goal, to grow and change.  The signature of Ohr Naava is to provide a multitude of programs, absolutely free of charge, for women wishing to make the time to grow, change, and further their Torah knowledge.

Although the original occasion for this shiur was Tisha B'Av, its inspiration is relevant and welcome at any time.  Here is the video:
