The Igeret HaRamban Series:

“Elevating Ourselves, Building Each Other”

Igeret HaRamban is a letter that the Ramban (1194–1270) wrote to his son. In the letter, the Ramban advises his son to live a humble and modest life. At the conclusion of the letter, he instructs his son to read the letter at least once a week and to incorporate the teachings into his life. It is said that one who learns the Igeret HaRamban is promised success.

The series will continue on Tuesday nights at 6:45pm-7:30pm on the following dates:
