Burning Questions with Rabbi Binny Freedman

In these classes, Rav Binny addresses the most difficult and burning questions of our day, and gives us the depth and breadth of the Torah perspectives on the issues. Try a class or two from this collection:

Rituals can easily become lifeless if no relationship is developed between the do-er and the ritual. Rav Binny takes us on a meaning-building journey through a seemingly ‘ridiculous’ mitzvah and gives us a goal to strive for: to work hard on building real relationships with the mitzvot.

Immortality and the Soul: Life After Death

How do the questions about life after death help to change our lives? Do we believe in an afterlife? What is the soul and what does our soul really need? Rav Binny explores these questions through the lives and deaths of some of the most well-known Biblical personalities
