What is the significance of our name? Is it an empowering force, or does it limit our potential. Levi suggests that we strive to fulfill the potential of our names, with the hope that we go beyond that potential.


The Maggid of Melbourne is an ongoing series by Rabbi Dr. Levi Cooper – teacher of Hasidut, community rabbi, lawyer, IDF reservist, father to six and native Australian – in which he shares some short Torah ideas on topics of current interest from his Pardes classroom, his research and from his shul in Zur Hadassa. To the Beit Midrash!
