Rabbi Yamin Levy is the energetic and talented visionary who is founder and Director of the Maimonides Heritage Center in Tiberias, Israel, one of the poorest communities in the country. With a vision and a plan 9 years ago, and major support from his congregants in New York, Rabbi Yamin transformed the dilapidated burial place of Maimonides and a nearby building into a center of study, engagement and outreach. You have to hear the kinds of kindnesses being done by this Center, for anyone in Tiberias including those not of the Jewish faith, including Arabs. Maimonides (1135-1204) preached love and righteousness and peace without boundaries, and the Center has literally changed the lives of thousands. Listen to this articulate and passionate Rabbi and check out their website mhcny.org, and see what can be done with God's help and a focus on changing the world a little bit at a time.
