Beauty – Is it more than skin deep? | Connections 1/5/09

A wonderful crowd joined together for socializing and Torah study this evening. The atmosphere was wonderful, the questions and comments from the participants were insightful and I had a great time.

Tonight we traversed all across the Torah spectrum. We talked about the Ner Tamid in every shul, the splitting of the sea, therapy and “American Pie” (the song not the movie). We learned about beauty and we enjoyed some incredible connections. That is what it is all about – right? You will find a lot of interesting ideas discussed and bandied about in this class.

How does this all connect? There is only one way for you to find out for yourself!

The entire audio of the class is provided below so that you can listen, enjoy and think about everything that we learned about. If you like what you hear you are more than welcome to join us next Monday night for our next “Connections”.

If you missed it live you can listen on your computer right now by clicking the link below. If you joined us it is also a great way to review. Right click “Download” to save the class on your computer.
