Through Part 1 of the Derech Hashem, Rabbi Tatz will reveal:

  • Why was the world created?
  • What is the purpose of the human being?
  • Why is this world necessary if we have the world to come?
  • What is the purpose of life?
  • What is the essence of free will?
  • What is G-d’s nature?
  • What is the nature of the relationship between the human being and G-d?
  • And more…

Class 1: Delve into an introduction to the Ramchal and then launch into the first chapter with a discussion of how to understand G-d and his eternalness and how to bring these ideas into practical application.

Class 2: Learn how to distinguish between the essence of G-d and His Name and discover the compelling evidence of G-d’s existence through two separate approaches.

Class 3: Explore the logical progression of understanding the purpose of creating the world , the necessity of creating people with free will and the ultimate reward of those who use their free in the service of G-d.

Class 4: Delve deeper into the reason G-d created the world and humanity, the essentiality and independence of G-d’s existence and how to bring G-d into our every action.

Class 5: Explore the meaning of the Oneness of Hashem, the names of Hashem and their meaning, and which names can be expressed in the world. Understand the language of our blessings and the work that is warranted when we say them.

Class 6: Discover a deeper understanding of the purpose of Creation, the meaning of ultimate goodness, the perfection (or lack thereof) within the world, and the existence of evil.

Class 7: Gain a powerful understanding of the necessity of our earning our reward in this world through our own free will. This will shed light into the inherent relationship between chessed and din and give us a deeper understanding as to our purpose in life.

Class 8: Learn what bonding and cleaving to Hashem means practically, the Divinely orchestrated revealing of Torah throughout different periods of history, and the human’s ultimate goal of perfection.

Rabbi Tatz’s TORAH is transparent, decentralized and immutable and if you don’t have some YOU BETTER ADD TATZ’s TORAH TO YOUR PORTFOLIO!!!!

“You have opened so very many gates to learning (“new ears” with each shiur!).

Rabbi Tatz’s shuirim somehow ‘zooms’ into personal dilemma’s which has given me the clarity/wisdom to make choices..”

The program is excellent. Rabbi Dr. Akiva Tatz holds the attention of the listener to the point that one sits at the edge of the seat in anticipation- waiting for the questions he poses and the subsequent answers. In two words : Awe Inspiring.”

I can get a basic shiur anywhere or learn basic things on my own. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate the deeper depth approach Rabbi Tatz comes from. It’s just so enjoyable.
