Nachum presented a great discussion with Rabbi Moshe Bamberger about his fascinating new book, Great Jewish Letters. In this unique collection, Rabbi Moshe Bamberger, a respected scholar and educator, shares with us 120 great Jewish letters, translated into flowing English from their original Hebrew. Spanning the centuries from the Gaonic period to today, these letters contain fascinating historical insights and profound ethical truths. Some of the letters are classics, others not well-known, but all share a sense of both intimacy and eternity, a message from a father to a son, from a teacher to a student, from a leader to his people. Nachum opened the phone lines for listener questions and had a great time with Rabbi Moshe Bamberger on The Nachum Segal Show’s Thursday Night Extravaganza.

Nachum interviewed Michael Rothschild, Founder of the Chofetz Chaim Heritage Foundation about the Foundation and his new book “The Family Lesson a Day.” The CCHF started two decades ago and has been a major influence on the way countless Jews approach their speech and each other. Like the stunningly successful A Lesson A Day, which helped bring the importance of shemiras halashon to the general public, The Family Lesson a Day adapts the teachings of the Sefer Chofetz Chaim, based on the daily learning schedule created by the legendary Manchester Rosh Yeshiva, Rabbi Yehuda Zev Segal zt’l. Specifically crafted for family use, each daily lesson includes true stories and delightful parables that bring the laws of proper speech to life. Each day’s lesson also contains an inspiring one sentence excerpt from the Chofetz Chaim’s Sefer Shemiras HaLashon that conveys the beauty and importance of proper speech. The Family Lesson a Day is down-to-earth, informative, and inspiring. It will be appreciated by young and old, parent and child. It can be read and discussed at home, at the dinner table, or in the classroom. Click here to listen.
