  1. Teshuvah Study Sheet - Recon approach - Toba Spitzer

    A study sheet on the evolving concept of teshuvah over the ages. Rabbi Toba Spitzer notes that in preparing this sheet, she purposefully refrained (most of the time) from translating the word “teshuvah” because of the very different approaches of each text. After reading these, what is your definition?

  4. God in Metaphor

    For many people, attending High Holydays services is a bit like going to a play where you really don't like the main character—where, much of the time, you doubt the very existence of the main character! If the “main character” in our traditional High Holydays liturgy is God, this can be quite a problem for anyone seeking a meaningful spiritual experience.

  8. What Are You Asking For?

    (A guided meditation on Psalm 27, from God Loves the Stranger: Stories, Poems, Prayers)

     

    One thing I ask of Adonai, only that do I seek.

    Imagine if you could ask one thing of Adonai.

    Imagine if reality, life, all the power and resources in existence could grant you one thing and one thing alone.

    (Pause) Take a few deep belly breaths.

    For this moment let your thoughts float freely.

    What would it be?

  10. High Holiday Message 5778 (2017)

    At Rosh Hashanah, as we turn to new beginnings, we seek to repent—to do teshuvah—for what we have done wrong. And we can also affirmatively foster ourselves toward resilience—toward a thriving, loving outlook in spite of whatever challenges we encounter in life. In this video, I explore themes of resilience embedded into Jewish practice.
