With Rabbi Avraham Arieh and Rachel Trugman
Rabbi Avraham Arieh and Rachel Trugman have thirty-five years of experience in Jewish education. They were a founding family of Moshav Modiim (the Carlebach Moshav) in 1976. From 1988-95, they served as Regional Directors of NCSY in Denver, Colorado. Upon returning to Israel they created Ohr Chadash: New Horizons in Jewish Experience, a dynamic educational program centered in Israel, which has run programs for tens of thousands of people of all ages and backgrounds.
Rabbi Trugman has published seven popular books on Jewish spirituality and mysticism and has produced four music discs of original music. Rachel Trugman, along with being an educator, is also a family therapist with a private practice and an artist who has published a coloring book.
The Trugmans have lectured in forty cities world-wide and have run and participated in hundreds of Shabbat programs.
