Join us for an eye-opening journey inspired by the teachings of Rav Avigdor Miller ztz”l, revered rosh yeshivah of Beis Yisrael Torah Center in Brooklyn, New York. Rav Avigdor Miller passionately taught his many talmidim to recognize and appreciate the chesed Hashem put in every facet of This World. This mitzvah has the power to transform our avodas Hashem and to change our perspective on life.
