The newest episode of Inside ArtScroll features an interview with Rav Yaakov Benderrosh yeshivah of Yeshivah Darchei Torah in Far Rockaway. Rav Bender has just released a new sefer, Rav Yaakov Bender on Chumash, exploring many of the Chumash’s timely and contemporary messages of strength, hope and chizuk. He begins with an insight on the parashah, and then shows us how the eternal and holy words of the Chumash are so relevant to us.

Rav Bender believes in you. And in me. And in every Jew.

He believes in our potential for greatness. In our capacity to face challenges with joy and courage. In our ability to change, to grow, to achieve. And he knows that all these things come from the spirit and power of the Torah and the beis medrash.

In his new sefer, as he discusses in this enlightening interview, he gently helps us find our own strengths and reach ever higher.

And he tells stories. So many stories! Rav Bender shares personal memories of his illustrious family. He brings us rare and often unknown stories about the gedolim we know and revere.

We know Rav Bender as a gifted mechanech, a distinguished talmid chacham, a visionary rosh yeshivah, a man completely devoted to his talmidim. We admire his warmth, his passion, and the love he has for Klal Yisrael. Experience all this – and more! – in this interview, and in the new sefer, which can be purchased HERE.

    • Can we act on Rabbi Benders anti homework stance by starting a petition and sending to all of our Yeshivas and Bais Yaakovs. We should be able to gather thousands of signatures. Anyone know how to start something like that?

  1. Question- why did Rabbi Bender remark that if even a plumber could learn shas daf Yomi, so should he. How is that not disparaging to plumbers, blue collar workers and learning working Yidden of all stripes?

  2. Yiddle:
    I didn’t watch the video, but what you describe is not at all disparaging.
    Hashem gifts everyone with different strengths and talents.

    Some are gifted and talented (and make a good parnassa beH from) plumbing, mechanics, and the like and not so much in “books”.
    Others are gifted and talented in the arts, and also not so much in “books”
    Still others, He made gifted and talented in “books”.

    Rabbi Bender seems to be saying that if others, who do not have that bracha of talent in “books” – regardless (they) – “do the daf”, then he, who does have that bracha for “books”, despite his myriad obligations, etc. also should “do the daf”.

    • Yes, but limaaseh it doesn’t look good for the white shirt shidduch market. A Rosh Yeshiva’s daughter he’s not getting. It can also effect the shidduchim of his siblings if they find out their brother is a plumber. The Father will also lose a notch of kavod when he comes to Shul friday night.
