Bilvavi Mishkan Evneh Author U.S. Tour - Elul/September 2008 Schedule

Rav Itamar Shwarz, the author of the Bilvavi Mishkan Evneh seforim (many of which are available HERE), will be in the United States for a speaking tour. The following is a list of the venues which are open to the public. Please attend! If you haven't heard him speak or learned his seforim before, you're about to experience a perspective on Avodas Hashem, and learning how to attain closeness with Hashem, which is different than what you may have experienced or learned before. All of his Drashahs will be given in a clear and easy to understand Hebrew. The Rav will be available for private appointments on Tuesday night, September 9th at Aish Kodesh in Woodmere, NY. Call Benyomin Wolf at 516-668-6397 for appointments or more information about the trip or the Boro park location as it becomes available.

What label would you choose to classify the bilvavi set under? I've never heard of these seforim before.

Menashe, as I'm sure others who learn the seforim could tell you, that's a very difficult question. Some see them as Mussar, some as hashkafa and some as Chassidus. But I think the best way to describe the seforim, especially vol. 1, is as a practical, clear and simple guide to actually attaining a conscious Deveikus with Hashem.

Just a clarification--Congregation Aish Kodesh (Shabbos Hashkafah Shiur on September 13th) is located on the corner of Woodmere Blvd & Woodmere Place (1 block PAST W. Broadway).
