    Self Beyond Self - Derech Hamelech, Parshat Nasso

    Dipping into the Torah that can carry us through. This piece from the Piaseczner Rebbe speaks of accessing a Self that exists beyond and within, a point of contact with the Divine in our root, that paves the way for a radical new framework of what it looks like to live with faith.

    Get Out of Your Cave! Hiding and Healing in the Story of Rebbe Shimon Bar Yochai

    With Lag Be'omer approaching, Rabbi Ami guides us through the story of Rebbe Shimon Bar Yochai, exploring its connections to sefirat ha'omer, the tragedy of Rebbe Akiva's students, the hidden dimensions of Torah - and ultimately, the potential for healing that this story contains.
    Technical difficulties affected the sound quality of this class. However, we decided to share it for its timely content. The audio evens out after the first 7 or so minutes.

R. Ami’s podcasts are amazing

R. Ami is a great teacher. His lessons/sessions touch just the right place for Jewish seekers. His ability to give over the essence of Piacesno Hasidism makes it come alive be extremely meaningful. His delivery exudes compassion and understanding. Thank you R. Ami!

A reminder of what prayer is

In our de facto Christian culture in America, it’s easy to forget what prayer is for Jews. Implicitly and explicitly, we’re confronted so often by a mode of prayer that isn’t our own that Jewish Americans can become confused about what it means to perform the thrice-daily mitzvah of tefillah. Rabbi Ami brings deep but simple from Tanach, midrash and commentaries that describe exactly what prayer is. And it’s so simple. It’s in our very nature.
