Want some quick learning for Shabbat? A topic from the weekly Torah reading related to real-life and in the spirit of Hannaton?
At the Hannaton Midrasha, we are proud to send you a series of short lessons on the Torah portion (and sometimes holidays and special events as well) entitled “Witness the Thunder”, or in Hebrew “רואים את הקולות”. Each short film is presented by a different teacher at the Hannaton Midrasha and reflects his or her personal perspective. Our goal is to bring some of the spirit, the learning and the people of Hannaton outside and to give you – our graduates, friends and partners – a chance to experience and be a part of Hannaton.
We welcome you to view these short talks, to learn from them, respond to them, use them for your own discussions and pass them on to others.
All videos are in Hebrew and most have English subtitles.
With many thanks to the D. Dan and Betty Kahn Foundation for helping make this project happen.
