    "Fire"
    With Rabbi Ari Sollish
    (Recorded live in Atlanta on November 29, 2020)

    Fire is one of the most magical elements on earth. It is of nature, but beyond nature. The nature of fire is radically different from the natures of all other forms of existence; whereas theirs is to solidify their existence, fire's nature is to undo its own existence.

    It should come as no surprise, then, that the most spiritual entities are likened to fire -- starting with the Torah. The Talmud adds fire to fire when it describes Torah thus: The Torah given to Moses was written with black fire upon white fire, sealed with fire, and swathed with bands of fire.

    Two fires. Black fire. White fire. What does it mean? What does it tell us about Torah and the life purpose Torah communicates?

    In this special holiday edition of Kabbalah & Coffee, we explore what the Kabbalists teach us about fire and the duel, fiery nature of Torah.

    Rooting Out Recidivism
    The Quest to Cure the Problem, Not the Symptom
    With Rabbi Ari Sollish
    (Recorded live at the Intown Jewish Academy on November 25, 2020)

    Fierce debates rage around questions of law and order, the rate of incarceration, and community policing. Yaakov’s swift departure from the fabled town of Be’er Sheva, to avoid peace talks, is the surprising setting in which the insight to these questions can be found.

    The Broken Tablets
    With Rabbi Ari Sollish
    (Recorded live in Atlanta on November 24, 2020)

    Can it be that the greatest divine revelation in human history failed to communicate its most basic message? Examining the dynamics behind the story of the Golden Calf and the Broken Tablets, we gain insight into some of the foundational underpinnings of the Jewish faith. What are “miracles” and “divine revelations,” and what purpose do they serve? How was the Torah communicated to us, and why is so much of it open to human interpretation? And on a personal level: What should we do with the “broken pieces” of our past failures?
