National Scholar Report: January 2021

January 2021

Despite the COVID-19 era, we are grateful to continue to provide meaningful content via Zoom, publications, and other venues.

I am excited to give a three-part series on Israel and the Bible. The Zoom classes will be held on Thursdays: December 31, January 7, and January 14, from 12:00-1:00pm. The classes are free but advanced registration is required. Please register here:

These classes also are being held in honor of the publication of my recent book, Cornerstones: The Bible and Jewish Ideology. The book contains twelve essays that explore aspects of our core values at the Institute.

The book is available at amazon:

On Monday, December 28, I will be giving a teacher’s training class to the Bible Faculty at Naaleh High School in Fair Lawn, NJ. Teacher’s trainings continue to be one of the most effective ways of promoting our ideology into the community, as a result of the multiplier effect when teachers transmit these values to their students.

I am teaching a series of classes on the Book of Psalms with the Beit Midrash of Teaneck. For more information and to join the Zoom sessions please contact Leah Feldman at [email protected]. These classes are free.

We are working on Conversations 37, which contains an excellent array of essays on Judaism and Critical Thinking—values cherished by our Institute! Stay tuned for its upcoming release in the spring.

As always, I profoundly thank the members and supporters of our Institute for enabling us to disseminate our vision around the globe. We are constantly corresponding with interested people and are making a genuine impact with our classes and publications.

May God bless us all with good health,

Rabbi Hayyim Angel
