Announcement: Halftime for Torah

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

This Sunday is the Superbowl, the most widely watched football game of the year with a halftime show that is inappropriate for many reasons. Igud HaRabbonim, the Rabbinical Alliance of America, together with Chazaq, is offering a halftime show of inspirational Torah. Speaker include Charlie Harary, R. Eytan Feiner, R. Yoel Gold and R. YY Jacobson.

I encourage those who are considering watching this sporting event to instead learn Torah and do mitzvos during that time. If you still decide to watch the game, you spend the halftime learning Torah here: link
