Raize was not available to lecture today, as clocks were set back in the US, and we had a mixup on time for our conference call. For those of us who were on the conference call, we had an open class lecture.
We shared stories of Hashgacha Pratis, read 2 stores from The Torah Anytimes Newsletter of TorahAnytime.com (Rabbi YY Rubinstein - My First Student) and (Rabbi Osher Chaim Levene - Zeresh and Esther: Demolishing and Building). We finished our discussion with talk about a documentary on the life of the Klausenberger Rebbe, zt”l, who lost his wife and 11 children in the Holocaust yet went on to rebuild the dynasty of Sanz Chassidus after it was almost totally destroyed.

Tune in next week when we will complete our studies of Parshat Vayeira and make a siyum / סיום (completion of the unit of Torah study and corresponding celebration).
