Stamford rabbi delivers first RCA YouTube lecture

The Rabbinical Council of America (RCA) has launched a new platform for rabbinic leadership and communication. The goal of this platform – dubbed R3CA – is to marshal new technology to expand the reach of our rabbis’ ideas. The RCA released the first of 10 videos of 18-minutes or less, created using a TED Talks-like format.  TED (Technology Entertainment and Design) is a popular conference that creates recordings of its presentations and distributes them free over the internet.  The first R3CA talk to be released is “Living a Life of Legacy: Discovering Your Elijah Moment,” delivered by Rabbi Daniel Cohen, spiritual leader of Congregation Agudath Sholom in Stamford.

According to the RCA, the goal of the R3CA project is to create a new format for teaching Torah for enhancing Jewish identity and deepen discussions of issues important to the Jewish communities around the world. It will also go a long way to helping rabbis change how they see themselves and their potential as public thought leaders.
