The Beams Friday Web Yeshiva: Shabbat Shoftim

BB Friday Web Yeshiva RSA LB
We here at the Beams are delighted to feature select lessons, brief and comprehensible, from Breslev Israel's distinguished staff of English speaking rabbis. We surely hope you enjoy this, so don't let your day go by without grabbing some Torah, especially ideas that you can say over at your Shabbat table. What's more, each week we feature a taste of the Chassidic world's most popular niggunim for your enjoyment.   

This week we'll hear lessons from Rabbi Shalom Arush, Rabbi Lazer Brody, Rabbi Dr. Zev Ballen, Rabbi Aharon Dobinsky and Rabbi Ralph Cohen. Our musical guest this week is our cherished spiritual son from Seattle, Washington - now Jerusalem - singing his gorgeous new song, "Mercy".  Enjoy and have a lovely Shabbat!
