    Longing and Returning with Shterny Tubul

    Longing and Returning with Shterny Tubul

    In today’s episode, I speak to Shterny Tubul about the lifelong process of Ratzui V’shuv, pining for spirituality, but always returning to the real work in this physical world. Shterny speaks about wrestling with a woman’s profoundly physical role in Judaism and how she had to redefine her understanding of spirituality. Through parenting her child, she began to sense what it meant to connect to G-d through her daily life, and she shares how she balances her personal process of longing and returning.

    This World is a Garden with Dini Hecht and Inbal Levin

    This World is a Garden with Dini Hecht and Inbal Levin

    In honor of Yud Shvat, I interview Dini Hecht and Inbal Levin about the way the Rebbe's vision for the world pushes them, each in their own way, to take responsibility for the state of the world and prioritize their fellow Jew's spirituality, just as much as their own. The world is already a garden. Through our tending, we reveal its inherent beauty.

    In today's episode, Chana Kalmenson speaks about using our understanding of attachment theory to better understand our relationships with G-d.
