Rabbi Dan Roth
Rabbi Dan Roth is the author of "Relevance: Pirkei Avos for the Twenty First Century" (Feldheim,www.relevance.co.il). His ability to take Torah ideals and communicate them in today's language - a thread that runs throughout his book - led him to establish Torah Live. Rabbi Roth studied in the Mir (Jerusalem) and received semicha from the Chief Rabbinate of Israel. He is an admired teacher, as well as a sought-after lecturer in schools and communities throughout the world.
"I believe there is nothing more exciting than the our heritage and am devoting my life to enabling every Jewish man woman and child to experience that excitement for themselves. Want to join me?"
