Each year, close to 10,000 people experience
the thrill of Aish HaTorah's Discovery Seminar. With its
crisp, entertaining style and state-of-the-art educational
techniques, Discovery packs the wisdom and relevance of Jewish
values and ideas into a spectacular and moving demonstration
of the case for Judaism.
Discovery begins by inviting participants
to challenge Judaism's central principles in a novel process
called Failsafe. Based on analytical techniques used by the
Mossad, the Israeli intelligence agency, this chain of discussions
draws audiences into a fascinating and rigorously intellectual
means of testing the rational basis for belief in Judaism.
Highlights of this segment include "Hidden Codes of
the Torah," which demonstrates the startling results
of highspeed computer analysis of the letters of the Torah.
A variety of original workshops round out
the seminar, exploding the myth that Judaism is anti-pleasure
and teaching participants how to take advantage of Judaism's
insights for personal enrichment.
Discovery's presentors, a team comprised
of physicists, mathematicians, lawyers, doctors, psychologists
and professors, are all volunteers. Through the warm, entertaining
and nonjudgemental atmosphere, audiences discover that Judaism
has the tools for enhancing one's self-esteem, personal power
and enjoyment of life. Discovery has been translated into
Russian, German, Hebrew, Spanish and French.
