Become a Torah Live Tester

Torah Live is proud to present the Ezra & Lauren Kest Emunah and Tefillah Project, geared toward day school students.

Our vision is to show today's children the depth and power of tefillah, in the language they understand. In order to achieve this, Torah Live will produce a two-year multimedia curriculum which will be be used by teachers around the world. The curriculum will include over 100 outstanding videos, engaging lesson plans, beautiful student workbooks, online assessments and a range of other supplementary teacher materials.
