Hashem put two guys on a plane, seated right next to each other on a flight. They had a lot of time to talk. And they did. To make a long story short, they ended up partnering to create Chayenu.

Hashem put two guys on a plane, seated right next to each other on a flight. They had a lot of time to talk. And they did.

To make an eternal story short, they partnered to produce a weekly magazine that would translate Torah study segments into English.

A few of these were printed weekly. Then a few more. 12 years later, a revolution of English Torah is mapping the entire globe.

Like all things Life, Chayenu has blossomed into a multifaceted organism of Torah, each product emphasizing and driven by the ultimate user experience. 

These are some of the living products born from that providential flight (soaring in more ways than one) those 12 years ago:
