Why I Teach

01 Apr 2015

Rabbi Elie Weismann, Rabbi of the Young Israel of Plainview, speaks about the values of education and educators. By watching, teachers and parents can help think through their roles as conduits of mesorah in the context of the Pesach Seder.

R3CA videos are a new format for teaching Torah and discussing important issues in the Jewish community.

On June 30, 2014, at the annual Rabbinical Council of America Conference, 10 rabbis gave high quality TED-like presentations and were professionally recorded before a live audience.

The short length (under 18 minutes) and entertaining quality of these presentations will expand engagement with Jewish values both within the Orthodox community and beyond. This project will enhance Jewish identity and deepen discussions of issues important to the Jewish community and the world. This project will also position RCA rabbis as public thought leaders in the digital world.

The Rabbinical Council of America is the largest rabbinical organization in the world with over 1000 members. The RCA was established in 1935, to advance the cause and the voice of Torah and the rabbinic tradition. To learn more about the RCA please visit www.rabbis.org.
