About our speakers:

Rabbi Dov Greenberg is the Founder and Executive Director of the cutting-edge Chabad House at Stanford University.Their L’Chaim Club has grown to be one of the largest and most thriving student societies at Stanford, attracting high-profile speakers from the worlds of politics, arts, culture and Israel advocacy.  Rabbi Greenberg is a sought-after communicator of Jewish thought and spirituality who has lectured throughout North America, Israel, and Europe, bringing a range of references, an awareness of setting, and a focus on things that matter.  He is a unique thought leader in the Jewish world, at home in both the religious and secular spheres.  His voice is informed by deep learning, moral clarity, and intellectual depth.


Rabbi Greenberg’s  topic is “ Let There Be Light .”  His talk encourages us to recognize our light and strengths as a tool for growth and upgrading our Jewish lives.  This vital lesson is brought to life with engaging anecdotes and teachings from all walks of life both here and abroad.


Just as it is critical to find light in yourself, it is also vital to find and nurture the light in others. As Jews, our task is to bring the light of love and G-dliness into the entire world. The best way to do this is not by focusing on what’s wrong in our community or with our spouse or children.  Rather, we must focus on the bright spots and nurture them.


Rabbi Shalom Dovber Lipskar is the founder of The Shul, recognized by Newsweek as one of America’s 25 most vibrant congregations. In 2013 Rabbi Lipskar was listed as one of the “Jewish 100” by The Algemeiner . He founded the Aleph Institute, a national Jewish education and humanitarian organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for the incarcerated and the military and their families. In 2004 he founded the Chaim Yakov Shlomo College of Jewish Studies offering Bachelors and Masters degrees in Hebrew Letters and Rabbinical Ordination. Rabbi Lipskar was ordained at the Central Lubavitch Yeshiva in Brooklyn and now lives in the Miami, Florida area.


Rabbi Lipskar’s topic is “ Torah and Mitzvot Bring Light to Judaism .”  The future of the Jewish people is not dependent on world circumstances or conditions.  We have already been promised by G-d that we are an eternal people and a fundamental aspect of creation.  Contradicting all analytical studies of social anthropology and history, our existence points to an aspect of Jewish continuity that defies all rationality.  Yet we are here, contributing to society disproportionately, always moving to the top of civilized development and maintaining an absolute dynamic identity.


What is the common factor that gives us staying power and fosters amazing contributions to civilization?  Throughout the ages that common factor has been our allegiance to Torah and Mitzvot.  Torah and Mitzvot have brought light to Judaism for more than three millennia.
