Sunday Night Live with Rav Ozer Bergman
So ... who IS Ozer Bergman? Teacher, author, spiritual coach ... yes, all this and more. He describes himself as follows:
I am a husband, father, grandfather, son, brother, brother-in-law, nephew, cousin, uncle, great-uncle, friend, confidante, teacher, speaker, author, editor and Jew.
I was born in Brooklyn (Crown Heights), raised in Long Island’s Five Towns (Woodmere). I attended Yeshiva of South Shore, MTA (aka YUHS-Boys Manhattan). I have a BA from The Johns Hopkins University and semikhah (rabbinic ordination) from the Bostoner Kollel of Jerusalem.
I moved to the Holy Land in February ’78 (Purim Katan 5738). I live in Yerushalayim/Jerusalem with my wife and unmarried children.
I’m 6′ 5″ and wear size 15½ D shoes.
All of this is undoubtedly true, and it IS really great that the ceilings in Undisclosed Studio B are over 25 feet high, which will surely make Rav Ozer quite comfortable when he arrives for the show tonight (he's seldom seen entering a room without ducking). But he's so, so much more than that .... he's also the author of "Where Earth and Heaven Kiss: A Guide to Rebbe Nachman's Path of Meditation" - a handbook on hitbodedut, the seemingly simple and yet very hard to do spiritual practice of simply talking to G*d.
Yes, just talking to HaShem. Opening up your mouth and letting words come out. Alone, in the privacy of a simple space, every day. Sounds easy?
Join us tonight at 8pm on Radio Free Nachlaot's live streaming video showcase show, "Sunday Night Live," to meet Rav Ozer and let's learn together!
