Salvador Litvak, the “Accidental Talmudist,” Wins the Best of Los Angeles Award for “Best Wisdom For Living” 2018

Salvador Litvak ( takes home the coveted Best of Los Angeles Award for “Best Wisdom For Living” 2018

LOS ANGELES , CA, UNITED STATES, May 28, 2018 / -- Working with his wife, Nina Davidovich Litvak, Salvador reaches one million people in 70 countries daily through an engaging blog and Live Show. The Litvaks' mission is “to increase peace in the world by sharing Jewish wisdom with everyone.”

Drawing from the vast body of wisdom literature found in Judaism’s ancient Oral Tradition, also known as the Talmud, the Litvaks offer time-tested solutions to modern problems. They emphasize the value of civil discourse in the current climate of overheated debate and trolling, especially on social media.

A Hollywood film director and Chilean immigrant, Salvador became the “Accidental Talmudist” after a little miracle launched him into seven years of daily Talmud study. “In that oceanic repository of Jewish law and lore, I discovered a fountain of wisdom for living that is relevant to all people,” Litvak said.

“There has never been so much knowledge available to the average human being,” says Litvak, “and yet everyone is thirsty for meaning. We don’t satisfy the yearnings of our souls by obsessively checking our smartphones. We do it by living in consonance with the values and potential for which we were created. And we do it best in community.”

The “Best of Los Angeles Award” community was formed three years ago and consists of over 3,900 professional members living and working in Southern California. It celebrates the best people, places and things in Los Angeles with a slogan “No Ads. No B.S. Only the Best.” (

“The mission of the community is to celebrate the best of Los Angeles and allow its community members to connect with other members who share the highest standards of quality and integrity,” said community spokeswoman Aurora DeRose.

"It’s an honor to receive this award from the Best of Los Angeles. It’s a great feeling to know that our hard work doesn’t go unnoticed," says Litvak.
