Hang in there – Shabbos is coming!
This week’s CTN Shabbat Fax is sponsored by Rabbi Moshe & Bracha Katz, in memory of his mother, Mrs. Eleanor Katz, on the occasion of her yahrzeit. ‘Your commitment to Torah and Judaism inspired Dad to begin a life of Torah and together you raised abeautiful family of Rabbis, educators and deeply committed Jews.’
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
