Sabbatical time pays off for Rabbi Dollin and HEA

Sabbatical time pays off for Rabbi Dollin and HEA

RABBI Bruce Dollin began to realize last year that his work as the senior rabbi of the Hebrew Education Alliance had started to become less inspiring and more predictable. The feeling left him at a crossroads.

“Rabbis of large congregations are constantly multitasking trying to meet the tremendous expectations of their communities,” said Rabbi Dollin in a report to his board and congregational community.

The sometimes subtle, but mostly overt pressure is always there. And when one multiplies this year after year for decades, the burden simply gets heavier and heavier as the rabbi gets more and more fatigued.”

World’s largest class — Daf Yomi — meets every day

World’s largest class — Daf Yomi — meets every daySOMEONE once said, “It will change your life, no doubt about that.” Imagine doing something everyday for at least an hour. Forget everyday things like sleeping and breathing — think meaningful dedication. Daf Yomi, or “page of the day,” is a world-wide program for Jewish people to engage in studying the Talmud every single day.
