    By Matt Shapiro

    Working at Beit T’Shuvah full-time for the past year has been a wild ride, with plenty of ups and downs, Although it can occasionally be somewhat (alright, very) stressful working here, I really love my job. Part of the reason I appreciate it so much is because... read on

  • The Need to Be Right

    By Beit T'shuvah

    June 21, 2013 | 10:59 am

    By Rabbi Mark Borovitz

    The role of learning is paramount to our existence, I believe. Paraphrasing Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel, “a life without learning is not worth living.” On the "Morning Joe" show on MSNBC, we are asked, what did we learn today. Yet, there are some of us who... read on
