Love This Class
This class is really incredible. For me his lectures include everything I want in a learning session: broad esoteric concepts, anecdotal references, odd tangents, practical advice, personal and liturgical stories and of course solid Talmudic and Biblical references. His personal approach to the concepts he's investigating is totally practical, and applicable to every-day living. Can't wait to hear more!!!
Wonderful Work -- Thank You!
This is a fabulous series. I have probably listened to more than 30 of these talks. They are packed with content and full of delicious detail. Once in a while the logic is a bit more fantastical than I am comfortable with -- but overall, homeruns almost every week. I especially like how he sometimes provides interpretations based on the physical forms of the Hebrew letters.
Although Mr. Sacks is not an ordained rabbi, he is a gaon -- a funny, pleasant, generous, non-pretentious gaon. You will be missing something important if you don't check out these talks.
Congratulations and thank you Mr. Sacks!
I find it very intriguing, enlightening, and interesting. I love the fresh perspectives that he brings out in these broadcasts. I'm very glad that I have stumbled upon this great teacher.
