In 2007, my friend Rabbi Yitzhak Ben-Gera and I felt called to help solve a long-time social dilemma we witnessed in Israel. As in the United States, there are at-risk young people. Translated from Hebrew, Beit Hashem means God’s Home. We exist to help young men find their life passions, purposes and heal their pain.
In Israel, ultra-orthodox Jewish families adhere to the strictest of religious laws. The study of Torah comprises all the education the children of these families pursue. They abstain from modern technology and influence. These poorly-educated, impoverished, and often large families rely on government subsidies to survive.
As young people in this society grow up, they naturally begin seeking their individuality, questioning the world around them, and developing interests in pursuits outside of family and religious study. Dissuaded from these paths by their parents and ultra-orthodox leaders, many young men are labeled rebellious. Consequentially, they may be thrown out of their schools of religious study.
Though the cause is unfamiliar to most in the United States, the same consequences ensue when young people don’t feel loved, respected, or understood. As a result, these young men take to life on the streets, engage in drug use, and begin searching for significance, only to turn up more trouble.
Beit Hashem provides a safe space for young men ages 12-17 to move from living lost to living in harmony with their faith, dreams, and families. Our young men are mentored and shown how to balance a relationship with God, the desires of their hearts, and a vocation to change the trajectory of their lives.
Create Generational change.

Over time, Dimitri discovered that I had more talent when it came to business systems, operations, and business growth strategies from my previous careers that he asked me to become a partner & COO in the company.
Now, I help our coaching clients create an automated coaching process that helps their clients get massive results while they get to work less AND make a bigger impact. I help people utilizing psychology and human behavior to create coaching systems and processes that help their clients get results while they can focus on business growth and sustainability.
Our clients are now closing larger deals (without closing deals prior), having more self-belief, and able to create sustainable systems so their business is around for the inevitable future.
