Bob Stark grew up in Cleveland. At the age of 13, his father died, and his mother sent him on a bar mitzvah trip to Israel.

That summer changed his life. Now a successful businessman, Bob has dedicated his life to making a difference. He has already transformed the Jewish community of Cleveland by founding a model school, importing Israelis to run the Torah Mitzion Kollels which he also founded, and by investing in informal education for Jewish youth. And this is just a fraction of his projects.

Tune in to meet this big-hearted philosopher, whose generosity and wisdom of process-thinking has changed the lives of countless people. Maybe a bit of his can-do spirit will rub off on you!
