“When my son started Prozdor in 2007 after graduating from Schechter, I decided to sign up for Me’ah. My Jewish education was too far behind his. Soviet school, university, and graduate school in chemistry did not provide much opportunity. Me’ah classes were inspiring and intellectually stimulating. I loved all of them –almost. I could not get rabbinic; it was very different from my way of thinking. As years passed, I realized how much I was missing. So, in 2014, I decided to take Me’ah a second time, at Temple Emanual, together with my wife, Julia. And this time, rabbinic fascinates me most.”
