It's good to be back on the air after a few Sundays away. In the beginning of the show I share about something I've never done before, but got the strength from my mother's soul to about a week I'll be leaving with a group for Poland, my third time there, and I speak about objections that a well known and respected Rabbi raises about Jews going to Poland, and why I feel those objections are short-sighted. All in all, I think you'll find the show thought-provoking and maybe even inspirational. You can reach me at any time at, keep that Derech Eretz thing going, my friends, and have a great week!

Rabbi Elan Adler served as a pulpit Rabbi for 25 years in Stamford, Ct and Baltimore, Md prior to making aliyah in 2010. Rabbi Adler received his Smicha from Yeshiva University, had the privilege of being an aide to Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik for two years, was an activist Rabbi in support of Israel and aliyah, and served as the President of the Baltimore Board of Rabbis. During his tenure as a Rabbi, he was known for being an engaging speaker and teacher, never failing to make easy connections with Jewish people as well as the non-Jewish and African American community. While serving congregations, he was appreciated for being welcoming, embracing of all people, and bringing congregants closer to their Jewish heritage. For more information on Rabbi Adler visit
