This web site aims to encourage open discussions on every possible topic related to Torah study. We welcome the involvement of men and women from anywhere in the world. The website is an extension of the Etta Kossowsky Fund learning programme, which encourages Torah learning for women in Israel through Study Groups. Like the Fund, it is a memorial to Etta Ehrman Kossowsky z.l. (1969-95).
The most recent addtion to this website is a talk given by Etta's brother, Eli, in Israel, to mark the Yahrzeit of Etta's father, Rabbi Dr A Z Ehrman z.l. The title of the talk is 'The Philosophy of Science and "truth" in Judaism' and Eli starts by defining the terms used in the title. The recording starts while he is doing this...
Our articles section covers a very wide range of topics. Many of the contributions are summaries of talks given in Etta Kossowsky Study Groups. All are Torah oriented and reflect personal readings of texts and commentaries.
The Annual Memorial Evening of Learning on the 18th Yahrzeit of Etta Ehrman Kossowsky was held on February 2nd / 23rd Shevat. After the welcome by Esther Ehrman, the learning began with a 'devar Torah' by Michi Kosssowsky. He was followed by the guest speaker, Dr Avigail Rock on 'Mishpatim as Social Justice'. The evening closed with a 'devar Torah' by Eli Ehrman. You can listen to all of this on the audio links.
