and even at Dodger Stadium.
Since returning to Israel in 2004, he has been giving daily Gemara
*shiurim*at Darche Noam/Shapell's as well as afternoon hashkafa
*vaadim* and mussar *shmuessen*. In his capacity as *mashgiach, *he

challenges of growing personally and spiritually. Rabbi Shoshan is also a
periodic visitor to communities and campuses in the US and United Kingdom,
and works together with American *mechanchim* and *mekarvim* to maximize the
experiences that students have learning at Darche Noam/Shapell's and its
sister seminary, Midreshet Rachel v'Chaya.
