On the 4th of Tammuz, we commemorated the first yahrzeit of Rabbanit Dr. Avigail Rock z”l, a beloved Torah teacher. To commemorate Rabbanit Dr. Rock’s legacy and to spread her Torah, a new website has been set up, collating audio, video and written shiurim that she delivered during the course of her twenty-five years of teaching. Many of the shiurim originated at the different Matan branches around Israel (Beit Shemesh, Chashmonaim and Jersualem). We encourage you to peruse the website and continue to reap the benefits of her vast knowledge, insight and passion:

Yehi zikhrah barukh.
