Fantastic broad knowledge in history

I am always amazed by the broad knowledge of history which Rabbi Katz shares with us. He has unique knowledge and a unique way of conveying it to his listeners.

Most Engaging Jewish History Lecturer of Our Time

Rabbi Katz is simply the best Jewish History speaker today. His breadth, depth, illustrative examples, and insights are unmatched. Can you really say you understand Jewish history if you haven’t heard Rabbi Katz?

I had the good fortune of learning Jewish History under Rabbi Katz in high school, and was floored by our luck at having a world class lecturer coming every week to our class of 15 students to teach us about Tanach. I am very pleased to be able to continue hearing his message several times weekly, and I am pleased it is being shared with an even broader audience thanks to the Podcast medium.
