- What is gTorah? -
gTorah is a Dvar Torah service. It stands for “Geshmack Torah”. “Geshmack” is a Yiddish word that kind of means “Aha!”. Something along the lines of a “Eureka” moment in Torah.
- Who is gTorah for? -
The basic utility of the service is to be a reliable source of something to say at your Shabbos table. The service is curated to be navigable, accessible, and engaging to read to this end.
The more sophisticated purpose of the service is to share how vibrant, beautiful, and relevant the Torah is; at every level, to everyone. The Torah records stories in very nuanced and subtle ways, and conveying the ethical messages requires clarity and accessibility. We select compelling Divrei Torah, and make them presentable to all ages at a Shabbos table. They can impact your life too; they’re meant to, if you’ll let them.
- Who is behind gTorah? -
The site was founded and is run by me, Netanel. I studied at Hasmonean in London under the tutelage of HaRav Yehoshua Hartman, and I spent two years at Yeshivas Beis Yisrael in Yerushalayim, under the Rosh Yeshiva HaRav Daniel Lehrfeld. I currently learn in the Mir Yeshiva.
I could not do this without the support of my family, rabbis, my friends Brocha, Aharon, my chavrusas, and the many friends who have written Divrei Torah for the site.
All articles are original, and written by myself or friends. I am in the process of editing all archives.
