AishDas Monsey Emunah and Mussar Workshop for Teenagers

AishDas Monsey Emunah and Mussar Workshop for Teenagers

The workshops will be led by Rabbi Yosef Gavriel Bechhofer

A six-hour (four 1.5 hour sessions) workshop for teenage boys is now open for registration. The workshop will take place over four days, August 8th to August 11th (4-7 Menachem Av) from 6:00pm to 7:30pm in Monsey.

It is no secret that high school students across the spectrum of Orthodoxy have questions and issues that often remain unanswered over the course of the school year. These are questions of Emunah (basic and core beliefs and the evidence of their authenticity) and Mussar (purpose and meaning in life). These will be addressed in the workshop. Moreover, often during the school year open questions and questioning are discouraged. The workshop will allow and address any and all questions that participants raise.

Topics that will be addressed will include:

  • The Evidence for the existence of God.
  • Evidence of the divine origin of Torah.
  • The Age of the Universe and Evolution.
  • The 13 Core Beliefs of the Rambam.
  • The purpose, mission and destiny of the individual, of society and of the universe.
  • The happiness of Emunah and Bitachon.

The cost is $54.00 per participant. To register, or for more information, please call 845.481.0613 or email
