Rabbi’s Articles

TAL is very lucky to have new articles each week written not only by their well known and respected Rabbi Tawil, but also by guest Rabbis.

Rabbi Tawil

Each week Rabbi Tawil writes an article welcoming in Shabbat and giving us his thoughts and insights on the weekly Parasha. Rabbi Tawil’s articles incorporate an amazing understanding of the weekly Torah content as well as its meaning and how it relates to our everyday lives.

In addition to Rabbi Tawil’s articles, TAL is honoured to have a guest Rabbi write for them each week in their Parasha Sheet. Their article is also published live on the TAL website, and provides a further thought provoking insight to the weekly Torah portion.

The articles written by different Rabbis each week are a wonderful way to build knowledge and insight from the Torah and gain values and inspiration to guide us all in our everyday lives.
