Below is a video of the distinguished speakers contributing to the Rabbinical Alliance of America / Igud HaRabbonim’s 5783 Chomer L’Drush, which includes a special message from Rav Pinchas Goldschmidt, President of the Conference of European Rabbis and until recently the Chief Rabbi of Moscow.

Because there is approximately three hours of Divrei Torah, the below schedule shows where the different speakers begin.

Thank you to all the speakers, to Rav Ya’akov Klass for MC’ing, to Rav Moshe Schmerler for organizing the Chomer L’Drush, and to Gita Schmerler for editing the video.
