Here’s what people are saying about Rabbi Nivin's Personal Development Program:

Rabbi Shlomo Abrams 

Head Rabbi of Jewish Learning Center

Far North Dallas

"Rabbi Nivin’s program is a system to take my goals and inspiration...and keep them alive throughout the year."

The Chabura is an amazing way to make sure that we are living according to our true potential. I was looking for a system to take my goals and inspiration from Elul and the Yomim Noraim and keep them alive throughout the entire year. The Chabura gave me those tools.

Simi Yellen

Worldwide Educator for Raise the Bar Parenting 

 "Oh my gosh! Another year gone by and what has happened..."

I had the privilege of being part of his Original Chabura for over 5 years. ...Instead of going through life in a daze...when you wake up and you say, “Oh my gosh! Another year gone by and what has happened…” If you implement Rabbi Nivin’s tools, you take stock everyday of where you are in life, how to move forward, asking the question, “What does Hashem want from me right now, how can I grow and what’s my next step in Avodas Hashem?”

"I went from changing running my business and home. "

Thank you Rabbi for all you have done, do and continue to do. Your efforts have reached beyond the virtual classroom. I went from changing diapers while listening in, to changing diapers while running my business and home. B”H you helped my dreams to come true. Much deep gratitude. I wish you much continued success.” 

Chana Jenny Weisberg

Founder of

"I look forward to Elul all year long... to reevaluate and establish my goals for the coming year."

Before I joined Rabbi Nivin's chabura almost a decade ago, I knew that Elul and preparing for the Yamim Noraim was a huge deal, but I didn't actually know what to do about it. That left me feeling confused and overwhelmed. For the 10 Eluls since I joined the chabura, Rabbi Nivin's approach has enabled me to have refreshing clarity regarding my goals and priorities, in Elul and in life. Thanks to Rabbi Nivin, nowadays I look forward to Elul all year long, and the annual opportunity it provides to reevaluate and establish my goals for the coming year.

How did these programs begin?

Rabbi Nivin's Personal Development Program was born 15 years ago, when a group of 20 individuals came together on a weekly conference call.
They needed practical applicable tools for tangible personal growth, and they knew that Rabbi Nivin was the address…
The energy in the group was electric. These inspired women got connected to their life purpose and made such significant changes in their lives, that some have stayed part of the Chabura all these years later.

“I’ve been involved with Rabbi Nivin's teachings and programs since 2013 and not only has it enriched my personal family and business life, but my spiritual connections have deepened too. I highly recommend Rabbi Nivin's programs to men and women who want practical tools for Jewish Personal Development.

Jon Yaakov Goldman

I cannot thank you enough for giving me such a valuable, doable, practical, and spiritual way to go through Elul. I think I say this every year, I used to listen to shiurim about Elul and Tshuva, I would just get nervous and feel paralyzed by the enormity of the task.  After taking your class, I now have such a beautiful way to go through Elul. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
