Road to Success

“With AISHVision 2030, I know exactly where you are headed. Will you get there? I don’t know for sure but given Aish’s track record, I would certainly not bet against it.” In fact, he added, “I am clearly betting on your success.”

Rabbi Burg

Female Empowerment

We must engage Jewish women all around the world. Women are and have always been key to the success of the Jewish nation.

Rabbi Burg

One Nation

We must reach out to every Jew around the world and make sure they know that we are one family and we will always be there for each other.

Rabbi Burg

Negative Feedback is Positive

One of the questions I constantly get asked as I travel around the world is: “Are things really as good at Aish as your emails seem?”

The Power of Shabbos

As the second mourning period of thirty days comes to a close, I want to share a glimpse of my father with all of you.

Thank You to the Mother of Torah Giants

Each and every week for the last six years I pour my heart and soul into letting all of you know what is going on at Aish. I try to give you a window into my travels and the incredible things I see among the Jewish people. There is nothing more enjoyable for me than to receive emails back from Jews around the world commenting on my weekly email.

The Real Cleveland Guardians

I spent a few days earlier this week in Cleveland. In the 90’s, I spent a tremendous amount of time in Cleveland as I worked with Jewish teens in the Midwest regional area. As my travels played out in the past decade, I just never made it back to my old stomping grounds.

Dinner in East Hampton

As an organization that has existed for over 45 years, Aish has impacted millions of Jews. In the course of any given week, I meet so many folks who tell me how Aish has genuinely made a difference in their lives and those of their families.

Love From Israel

Much love from Israel. Although I am working at Aish, most of the country is on vacation. It is fascinating to see the hotels that are usually packed with tourists filled with Israelis who have chosen not to travel abroad this summer due to Covid-19.

Rabbi Burg

The UN to the Jewish People

Aish positioned itself at the planetary wellspring of spirituality by design. Our job is to facilitate inspiration to all.

Rabbi Burg

Keeping the Flame Alive

The week leading up to the day of Tisha B’Av is always the saddest time in the Jewish calendar. It marks the commemorative date that both Jewish Temples were destroyed two thousand years ago.

Rabbi Burg

Journey of a Lifetime

It is always amazing how quickly time flies. This past week marked six years since I started working at Aish.

Progress in Aish Buenos Aires

I have had many conversations with members of the Aish family around the world about their experiences of the trauma of Covid-19.

All Hands on Deck

A busy week in Jerusalem, including the Dan Family Aish World Center, and visiting with students, families, and political friends.

Rabbi Burg

You Must Lead

Aish must teach, promote, instruct, convey, inculcate and engrave on every Jew’s heart the concept of responsibility. My friends, don’t wait for others to lead. You are all leaders.
