Central Synagogue Podcast
Central Synagogue’s brilliant and welcoming staff and clergy have helped this non-Jew get through the dark times of the pandemic through their virtual programs. This podcast replays some of the sermons and adds other things as well, including Rabbi Buchdahl’s twice-weekly meditation. The interview with Dr. Ruth is a highlight, presenting this remarkable woman in conversation with Rabbi Buchdahl.
Passing On Podcast
I’ll be passing on this podcast from now on. I had hoped for more inspirational wisdom and insight, but it seems that the leadership has a different focus on scriptures, Israel and community. Really surprised with Rabbi Angela’s interview of Dr. Ruth recently. Not what I would term Holy Space when tuning into Central Synagogue’s podcast.
