JONATHAN OMER-MAN BOOK PROJECT UPDATE

We are delighted to inform you that all of the major work for Rabbi Omer-Man’s book, Perpetual Pilgrim: Teachings of Rabbi Jonathan Omer-Man, is now complete! We are currently on schedule to submit the finished manuscript to an editor at a major publishing house and are eagerly awaiting the final product.

With the finish line in sight, we cannot overstate our appreciation for all of the support we've received from the Metivta community in making R' Jonathan's book a reality. This project was funded entirely through donations, and the emotional support has helped to keep momentum going every step of the way. On behalf of R' Jonathan and the Metivta Board, THANK YOU!


NEW METIVTA WEBSITE

We are pleased to announce that our website has recently undergone a full redesign! Our hope is that this new site will become a resource for our community to stay abreast of upcoming events, and for those new to Metivta to learn more about who we are and what we do. Please visit metivta.org to explore the new site for yourself.
