Hang in there – Shabbos is coming!
I have an incredibly hectic job as a Chief Financial Officer for a high growth technology company. My study session with Rabbi Deutsch is a great spiritual renewal in the middle of my week and helps me keep focus on what is truly important.
The Rabbis at CTN do an amazing job of demonstrating the beauty and richness of Judaism. They provide me and many others with the opportunity to incorporate Torah study and growth into my week at my own pace. CTN has truly been a wonderful addition to my life.
My commitment to Israel and efforts on behalf of Jewish causes has dramatically increased since I have begun to learn more about Torah and Jewish tradition with CTN and its wonderful Rabbis. CTN has had a tremendous impact on my and my family’s life.
Rabbi Deutsch and Rabbi Katz really make an effort to try to connect to everyone. At CTN people are always reaching out to you and offering support every step of the way. Classes and holiday services are always on a level that is inclusive as well as inspirational.
CTN has allowed me – and many other young professionals – to grow in my Jewish identity and Jewish knowledge at a pace that is right for me. If you’re looking for Jewish learning and inspiration, CTN is definitely the place to go!
