If a picture is worth 1000 words, how many words is a video worth?
This week, the first Makor Rishon “International Conference on the Diaspora” was held online, on the subject: “How the Corona Affected the Jewish World.” It goes without saying that as a network that treasures its strong connection with Diaspora Jewish communities and has a deep commitment to Jews all over the world, Ohr Torah Stone played an integral part.
The conference closed with a “Worldwide Tish” featuring songs and music from five of the 300 shlichim from OTS’ Straus-Amiel and Beren-Amiel emissary programs currently serving around the world. In this video you will get to know Rabbi and Rebbetzin Pini and Renana Ben Mordechai who are now in Monterey, Mexico; Rabbi Ariel Tal who – with his wife Rachel – serves as the rabbi of the Jewish community in Wellington, New Zealand; Yaakov Wacks, who teaches with wife Merav at a Jewish school in Teaneck, New Jersey; Rabbi and Rebbetzin Oriel and Batya Zaretzky, a rabbinical couple in Warsaw, Poland; And Rabbi Lior and Rachel Kaminetzky, who returned from shlichut in Birmingham, England, and currently live in Jerusalem.
