Rabbi Dovid Caytak of Yerushalayim has launched a new podcast featuring conversations with “people who make a difference.”
Called “Inspired Journeys”, the podcast is a forum where Caytak interviews Yidden who have had inspiring Journeys in life. It is meant to be a place to learn from and draw inspiration, for introspection and reflection.

In Episode 2 we discuss the Mashpiim who lived there, and the life in Yeshiva.
