Personal Development and Jewish Thought in the Torah

This course, taught by WebYeshiva faculty member, Rabbi Ron-Ami Meyers, explores key themes in Avodat Hashem (serving God), through the prism of the Parsha – as expounded upon in the Talmud, Midrash and Medieval commentaries on the Chumash. Adapted from the sources of Rabbi Avigdor Nebenzhal, from his five volume commentary on the Chumash.

About Rabbi Meyers

Rabbi Ron-Ami Meyers had his first taste of Torah learning under Rabbi Brovender at Yeshivat Hamivtar in 1983. His Torah study continued at Yeshiva University and at Kollelim in Eretz Yisrael. After years as a high school rebbe, in 2001, Rabbi Meyers joined Darche Noam Institutions in Jerusalem. Since then, he has combined his exuberance for Jewish learning and unique sense of humor with Torah software tools to generate captivating classes in Talmud, Jewish Law and ethics.
