Each week, Parsha-Insights expounds upon two or three topics from the weekly parsha. Issues that are relevant to every day life are explained and applied, often using stories of great Jewish leaders and personal anecdotes and experiences of the author. The aim is to expose the depth, beauty, warmth and applicability of our Torah.
The author, Rabbi Yisroel Ciner is a Rebbe [teacher] at Neveh Zion, located in Telzstone (outside of Yerushalayim). Neveh Zion is geared toward students with at least some degree of a Yeshiva background, and aims to motivate them and instill in them a love for Judaism. Rabbi Ciner's weekly parsha classes are infused with this "Neveh spirit", building upon different meaningful and applicable aspects of the parsha and choosing concepts which show the warmth and beauty of the Torah and its adherents.
