Each year, close to 10,000 people experience the thrill of Aish HaTorah's Discovery Seminar. With its crisp, entertaining style and state-of-the-art educational techniques, Discovery packs the wisdom and relevance of Jewish values and ideas into a spectacular and moving demonstration of the case for Judaism.
Discovery begins by inviting participants to challenge Judaism's central principles in a novel process called Failsafe. Based on analytical techniques used by the Mossad, the Israeli intelligence agency, this chain of discussions draws audiences into a fascinating and rigorously intellectual means of testing the rational basis for belief in Judaism. Highlights of this segment include "Hidden Codes of the Torah," which demonstrates the startling results of high speed computer analysis of the letters of the Torah.
A variety of original workshops round out the seminar, exploding the myth that Judaism is anti-pleasure and teaching participants how to take advantage of Judaism's insights for personal enrichment.
Discovery's presenters, a team comprised of physicists, mathematicians, lawyers, doctors, psychologists and professors, are all volunteers. Through the warm, entertaining and nonjudgmental atmosphere, audiences discover that Judaism has the tools for enhancing one's self-esteem, personal power and enjoyment of life. Discovery has been translated into Russian, German, Hebrew, Spanish and French.
