Shavuos is approaching and we are all getting excited for an another explosion of Torah excitement. Tuesday evening we gather for dinner and learning, where we all pull together and prepare something interesting and thought provoking.
For a brief synopsis of last year’s session;
Andras Mayer spoke about the pitfalls of art in the forms of sculptures and pictures,
Gabor Mayer spoke about copyright in Jewish law
Laci Horovic spoke about Shavuos and its’ customs
Michael Miller spoke about the Amida prayer
Sanyi Feldmájer spoke about the Kabbala
I spoke about the halachic process of dialogue
Each class was thought provoking; questions took us to the abyss of suspense with solutions that thrilled.
Barack Obama and colleagues look on rapt as the András Mayer presents a few challenges to sculpture on the basis of the Biblical injunction of making idols

I am looking forward to a repeat of last years thrills.
