 Rabbi Soloveichik’s Friday Night Lights series has been a source of weekly enlightenment  for years, and the Coronavirus Pandemic could not slow him down. Indeed, since the very onset of the crisis, Rabbi Soloveichik pivoted to an old-school radio show format enabling members and friends, near and far, to easily dial in and find comfort and inspiration from these special talks pre-shabbat talks each and every week.

With the clocks changing and Fridays growing shorter, starting in November, Friday Night Lights will be held on Thursdays at 7:30 pm.  

Make sure to enroll (once is enough) to get weekly email reminders and source sheets.
