I go there every week. (In Ohr Naava) So nice to see all walks of life together as one. No judging anyone. Real Achdus!! He has a major Zechus. Now you can see him live on Torahanytime each Wed. night.March 4, 2010 9:23 pm at 9:23 pm #759197potsandpansMember
I have heard many shiurim in past years- in high school, in sem, in college etc…But I have never enjoyed a shiur like i do when i listen to Rabbi Walerstein!! His shiurim are so insightful and fulllll of humor!! I enjoy them tremendously and i would recommend them to every person!! they are soo relevant to everyone: from a FFB bais yaakov girl or boy to someone finding their way back to yiddishkiet!!March 4, 2010 11:17 pm at 11:17 pm #759198Mommy613Member

“yups, same here! but I guess that comes to show us that the outside doesn’t make a person!”
Isn’t it a good rule of thumb not to talk about people…..?March 5, 2010 6:54 am at 6:54 am #759202sm29Participant
excellent shiurim, so many great speakers on there BHMarch 5, 2010 2:36 pm at 2:36 pm #759204Mrs. DoubtfireParticipant
I can really say Rabbi Walletstein changed my life. I’m a regular woman in a big frum city with no trauma or drama in my life bH so you would never think I am such a changed person because there is nothing different about me on the outside. But on the inside and in my connection to Hashem I am completely inspired by yiddishkeit and have a different outlook on life in general now and on the purpose of our lives.
I listen to R Wallerstein’s shiurim all the time and they always give me a boost!
As an added bonus my housework is much less tedious and gets done so much more quickly when I have a shiur plugged into my ears.
I am ever grateful to Rabbi Wallerstein for making my life that is so full of blessings boruch Hashem, that much richer!March 8, 2010 4:48 pm at 4:48 pm #759205realtalkMember
On Torahanytime there is another amazing shiur by Rabbi Lawrence Keleman called we are never alone- Not normally amazing- everyone should listen to it.March 8, 2010 4:49 pm at 4:49 pm #759206realtalkMember
I tried to download some of the shiurim onto my mp3 and could quite do it- can someone explain to me how to do it?March 8, 2010 5:23 pm at 5:23 pm #759207haifagirlParticipant
I LOVE that shiur by Rabbi Keleman. He has a lot of good shiurim, in fact, but that is my favorite. I cry more each time I listen to it.March 9, 2010 5:43 am at 5:43 am #759208potsandpansMember
Realtalk…I can’t THANK YOU enough for telling us about Rabbi Keleman’s story! after reading your post i quickly tuned in torahanytime to listen…and though the speech was 1 hr and 17 min…I could not stop listening!!! I have never laughed so hard and yet cried inside at the same time!!! I have sat at the edge of my seat the entire time!! His story is unbelievable and I know i will now tell everyone i know to listen to it. so thank you again for telling everyone about it!March 9, 2010 9:50 am at 9:50 am #759209bored123Participant
omg that shiur from rabbi keleman is unbelievable..i listened to it about a year ago and for the entire 1hr and 17 minutes i was GLUED!!!!anyone who hasnt listened to it yet just has to listen!!!!!!and rabbi wallerstein’s shiurim are amazing!! i don’t usually have os much time during the year to listen, but nearer to rosh hashana, y’k time i make more of an effort to listen and his shiurim make such a difference, and the thing i love about his shiurim most is that they’re relevant to everyone however frum or not frum a person is and whatever level you’re holding at you’ll find something relevant to you in his shiurim. definitely recommended!!!March 9, 2010 3:55 pm at 3:55 pm #759210

As I’ve been doing Pesach cleaning, I’ve been listening to many of Rabbi Wallerstein’s Pesach shiurim on my Ipod (I have a little speaker on my counter, much easier then having earphones on). They are amazing and inspiring!April 12, 2011 2:49 pm at 2:49 pm #759213adorableParticipant
Rabbi wallerstein is the most unbelievable person around! His shiurim keep me going! I listen to them all the time on Kol halashon! I definitely had the shock of my life when I saw a picture of him!April 12, 2011 5:25 pm at 5:25 pm #759214mytakeMember
“I’m a regular woman in a big frum city with no trauma or drama in my life…”
Regular “woman”, huh? You’re sure you’re not Robin Williams? Mind if I asked why you chose this username? Just curious!April 12, 2011 6:14 pm at 6:14 pm #759215yolkMember
who is rabbi keleman? Is he a rebbe, teacher pricipal?? i now rabbi wallerstein does Ohr Naava- but is Rabbi Keleman something like that also?April 12, 2011 6:20 pm at 6:20 pm #759216adorableParticipant
I listened to Leib Keleman’s speech about his son like 100 times and still laugh whenever i hear it! great guy, great story! “Chana was saying the whole time- this is a bad idea this is a bad idea….!” hysterical guyApril 13, 2011 1:52 am at 1:52 am #759217mra01385Participant
I totally agree that R Wallerstein is one of the best speakers I know! Before I got married, and lived in NY, I used to go listen to him every wed night in Ohr Naava. Also, thanks to apusheta yid for giving me the inspiration to start listening to his shiurim again by downloading it to my mp3 player from torahanytime. Now I can listen to his shiurim in the car while driving to and from work.April 13, 2011 12:55 pm at 12:55 pm #759218A Woman Outside BrooklynParticipant
And it can’t be mentioned enough times what a benefit TorahAnyTime.com has been! I’m off now to see if I have that shiur referred to here from Rabbi Keleman (I know I have quite a few of his on my Ipod). One of my son’s has found virtually every shiur available and has thousands on his computer!
Cute anecdote about R’ Keleman’s shiur on “Why Jews Don’t Celebrate Xmas”…. I have a coworker who is a J.. Witness. One year she was trying to compile info for a presentation to her church on why Xmas is a pagen holiday. I passed along an email I’d received based upon that shiur, and she found it helpful (there was no Das Torah in what I gave her – I edited it first).April 13, 2011 2:44 pm at 2:44 pm #759219
mra01385: Thank You. i get inspired so i figured to inspire e/o else.
I wait every wednesday to listen to his shuirim. They just give me so much energy to go on with life. Like before a yom tov he puts such excitement in you. it’s so different when i wake up thursday! all excited. with simcha! he is just amazing! i always like his good sense of humor! stories, and torah on the parshah.
