Making Sense of Our Senses

Yisrael Rutman

We are used to thinking of five senses: sight, hearing, touch, taste, and smell. But these aren’t the only ways in which we relate to the world around us. Scientists are studying a number of other “senses.” This week we’ll try to make sense of them all for you.

Zoom In

Surela

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.
