Fellowships Mid 90's

I did the fellowships in mid 1990s. I remember feeling at the time completely overwhelmed with the experience and not sure about it-at the time. Shortly afterwards, very very very slowly the lessons, discussions, learnings and a multitude of learnings started to come back to me in the form of a spark to learn more; connect more with our faith; do more for others. I started off agnostic all those years ago now ofcourse I am a very firm believer in Hashem and everynight before going to bed I spend about 30 to 60 minutes learning. I have been doing that for well over a decade. ALL of this is due to this wonderful, beautiful, dearly special human being Rav Weinberg. If not for Rav Weinberg and for that fellowship experience I would be a much less grounded person emotionally and physically. May Hashem bless Rav Weinberg's soul eternally.

RAV NOACH MEANT A LOT TO ME, AND STILL DOES. HE TAUGHT ME TO LIVE LIFE WITH PLEASURE , ANTICIPATE PLEASURE AND SHARE PLEASURE. I WAS AT AISH IN 1977, AND LIKE HE SAID THE YESHIVA HAS ONE DOOR IN BUT NO DOOR OUT !

Aish Changed My Life...

I spent three months at Aish (spring 1993) and it was the most important three months of my life. Aish planted seeds in me which took a few yeas to blossom. A few years later I became religious, went back to learn in a yeshiva, got ordained, and then worked in Jewish ed. A large part of all the Torah I teach and mitzvot I do is because of R' Weinberg.
