Kabbalah, or ‘Jewish Mysticism’ is a fascinating subject, and Rabbi Yitzchak Michaelson (AKA Ira Michaelson) and his co-host William Hall break it down for those who are hungry to learn about the universe, …and themselves!
Rav (Rabbi) Yitzchak Michaelson:
Rav Yitzchak (Ira) Michaelson has been a student of Kabbalah, Chassidut, and other religions for over 40 years. Ira is a Shomer Shabbat/Shomer Mitzvot Jew who desires to share the wisdom of Kabbalah with the Jewish people and the Nations. His desire is to learn and share in order to grow spiritually, and to help usher in redemption. Rav Yitzchak previously worked with Rav Dror Moshe Cassouto. He currently lives in Tzfat, Israel with his wife, and recently established a Noahide Center called ‘Torah for the Nations’ with his partner, Pesach Sherbow.
William was raised and baptized as a Christian by his mother when he was 9 years old. He only found out later in life that his biological father was a Hebrew Christian (Messianic) leader. William chose to follow that path until he began to study Hebrew and was faced with the many mistranslations and misinterpretations he found in the New Testament. As a result of these challenges, William left Christianity and launched the very successful Live Video Call In show “Tenak Talk” where he interviews Rabbis like Michael Skobac, Tovia Singer, Yisroel Blumenthal, and Rav Yitzchak Michaelson on topics ranging from the weekly Torah readings to dealing with Missionaries. He currently lives and broadcasts from Kingsland, Texas where he lives with his wife and children.
