OU Executive Vice President Rabbi Steven Weil will serve as Scholar-in-Residence this Shabbat, April 13, Parshat Tazria/Metzora, at Congregation Ahavath Torah in Englewood. On a busy day, he will give the morning drasha, “The Best of Times, The Worst of Times,” to be followed by “The Crisis of Orthodox Affordability: A Light at the End of the Tunnel,” at a Lunch and Learn session.

As the day moves on, Rabbi Weil will speak 30 minutes before Mincha on “What is the Color of Jewish Blood;” later, at the Seudat Shlishit, his topic will “Above and Beyond the Letter of the Law.”

“Rabbi Weil is a dynamic and articulate spokesman for Jewish thought and practice. His ability to apply concepts from serious, in-depth learning to the issues that Modern Orthodox Jews face on a daily basis is an invaluable asset to our communities. That is why we are so excited to have him here in Englewood again,” stated Rabbi Chaim Poupko, associate rabbi of Ahavath Torah.

The synagogue is located at 240 Broad Avenue.
