Bilvavi Mishkan Evneh

Rav Itamar Shwartz, Shlita, the author of the Bilvavi Mishkan Evneh seforim, is at the completion of a speaking tour in the eastern United States. He gave 14 shiurim at Litvishe Yeshivos, Sephardi Yeshivos, Chassidishe Kollels, Modern Orthodox institutions, and everything in between. All 14 shiurim are available for download and some are available in streaming audio. Please enjoy the Torah and may it be the impetus for us to work on being mekarev ourselves to Hashem.

New Torah & Chassidus Center - Wellsprings

(Painting by Baruch Nachshon)

I am excited to say that I am in the process of creating a new center for Torah & Chassidus in the mercaz, the middle of Yerushalayim. We are looking at something in the center of town and formulating the necessary plans.

The future Maayanot / Wellsprings center will house daily men's & women's shiurim and classes in Torah, Chassidus of all kinds, Jewish music, meditation, a reading corner for children, a small beis medrash and hopefully a book shop offering coffee and cake for visitors.

What we really need are sponsors, the costs per month are only a few hundred dollars.
Please contact us to help fulfill this dream: a center for Torah & Chassidus in Yerushalayim.

All donations are U.S. 501c(3) or Canada tax deductable
