30 Minutes of Text Study in Honor of the Sheloshim of Rabbi Aaron Panken, Ph.D., z”l

Main Content

Thank you for honoring our teacher, friend, and president, Rabbi Aaron Panken, Ph.D., z”l, by devoting at least 30 minutes of study in his memory. Whether you organized a study group, attended an on-campus event, or tuned into one of the on-campus sessions, you spread the blessing of learning which Aaron valued so highly. 

We are pleased to share with you the recordings of our sessions, a detailed study guide, text sheets for each of the campus-based events, and a brief video tribute to our teacher. If you have any questions, please contact us at
