What do you call monthly migraines, nightmares, vacuum-sealed test tubes, and a Christian Korean boy? Well, Joshua Mangerel calls them berachot. You’ll have to get the details from him, but suffice it to say, it all helped him become the “ben Torah” he is today – with Ohr Somayach’s guidance.

Joshua was having second thoughts about lab research before he went on his Birthright trip. After the journey, his hidden tzitzit (and he himself) were screaming, “Shma Yisrael…” for a new life. His prayers were quickly answered and his Yeshiva birthright began. Now, instead of being the loner learning not to say lashon hara, Joshua’s an inspiration to his fellow moral-minded peers, and the Torah and mitzvot have stimulated Joshua into his true calling to be a doctor. He says, “G-d is my role model. Being Jewish is not about copying people. It is about living with G-d.”
