With Rabbi Levi and Chavi Welton, family and guests after an amazing Shabbat in Yonkers

With Nachliel HaCohen Selavan and some of his fans! This guy is incredibly diverse. A painter, archeology expert, “chazzan”, Torah scholar and more.
I had seen all the media buzz about his tour at the The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York but didn’t really know what to expect. But as he presented his lecture “A WINTERS TALE”, I was blown away by how he masterfully weaved ancient archeology and history with sources from all over the Torah. One second he’s talking about Athena and the fascinating influence she had over the Founding Fathers of this country and the next second he’s talking about the “spiritual maturation” that took place in the conversations between Queen Esther and Mordechai in the story of Purim. It didn’t surprise me that he received a resounding applause from all who were there.
I’m proud to say that if you’re the least bit interested in ancient Israel, archeology or the Jewish story as expressed through art history , you should head to his website or Facebook page Torah Intermedia LLC and book a tour with him ASAP: https://torahintermedia.com/book-now/
P.S. He didn’t pay me a cent or even ask me to say any of this. But I’m just so bored of people who are showboaters and this guy has this “quiet charisma” that I truly admire!
