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.
