Reb Gedaliah’s Style
Rabbi Fleer is an original and innovative thinker. Each of his lectures is a composition, a unique synthesis of his broad knowledge of Torah, Chassidut, Philosophy, Kabbalah and storytelling. From his lectures one learns the immediate subject, but the experience is enriched with themes from Kabbalah and the Talmud along with his own personal and mesmerizing insights. His teaching is profound and practical at the same time.
