Torat Yisrael paper looks great!

There is a new publication being distributed around various communities around Israel. It is called Torat Yisrael.

After a successful pilot run, the founders took a break of a few months, put together a full business plan, redesigned the paper where necessary, and took care of various business aspects necessary for the successful relaunch of Torat Yisrael.

They recently relaunched, but have had some distribution glitches. My shul had not received Torat Yisrael's first few editions due to the 'glitch'. This past Shabbos, my shul finally received a batch of them and they were snatched up right away.

The paper is refreshing, with full color pages and interesting articles written by "Land of Israel" activists and Talmidei Chachamim.

Sometimes I read something in these Shabbos parsha papers but can never find them again. I might have read something that I would like to reference or remember, but by the time the edition is gone, it is often impossible to find old copies or any other way of recovering the article you wanted to review.

With Torat Yisrael, that is not a problem. They have a website that includes all the articles they print, and they also now have a blog that includes many of the articles and many timely updates and issues that arise that do not necessarily make it into the Shabbos paper.

Check them out and look for the paper in your shul! If your shul does not receive it, contact the editors (links from their websites) and I am sure they will try to include your shul in their distribution if possible.

And of course, if you have a business or product, consider advertising with them. They have a wide reach, as their distribution includes communities all over Israel.

(for good measure I will point out that the Editor in Chief, Shmuel Sokol, is my cousin)


  1. I love it. The people in my synagogue can't get enough of it. I want it weekly!

  2. Can you explain me, Rafi, why this newsletter saw fit to have an advertisment with a woman in a bathing suit? When they modified the ad, you could still see the woman.

  3. you would have to ask them.

  4. The "bathing suit" in question was not something immodest but rather a line of ultra-modest beachwear for religious women, much less revealing than many religious women wear daily on the street. We modified the ad based on the advice of one of our rabbanim who said that shul is the wrong context for such images. We should keep things in proportion here.

  7. thanks Beis. That is great (but still only partial)
