Dr. Bruck’s experiences in education, acceptance to nearly 10 US MD programs, and service on the admissions committee of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai have led her to have a highly successful track record helping premeds navigate the medical school application process.

Music Is My Shlichus - with Esther Freeman
Join the discussion group: https://chat.whatsapp.com/Lj6a5VZhRnBKCumXLE43QK     Going back to our routes with an interview of a singer/songwriter- Esther Freeman. We talk about the challenging aspects of being one of the first "kol isha" superstars and the challenges that came with that. How social media changed the game and how unhealthy it can be for someone who just wants to do sing and not focus on the "influencing" in the SM way.   About Our Guest: Esther Freeman is an accomplished performer who brings incredible energy, a beautiful voice, powerful stage presence, creative song-writing and true meaning to the stage.

Having refused an option to become a singer on the radio at 14, Esther was not dettered from her musical aspirations and decided to use it as a means to bringing others closer to Judaism. She began composing music and writing her own lyrics, accompanying herself on guitar and piano over 15 years ago. Since then, Esther has electrified audiences across the globe, in Amsterdam, London, Sweden, throughout the United States and has performed at the international Kinus Hashluchos twice. Esther's music ranges from slow soulful ballads to high-energy songs and are accompanied by personal stories and deep Jewish and chassidic concepts bound to capture, inspire and warm the hearts of her audience. What unites all of her songs are the meaningful lyrics that reflect her desire to share the beauty of Judaism with the world.
