Great thought provoking podcast

I love to listen to this weekly podcast. I always come away with a new way of thinking about and understanding the weekly parsha.

Good Podcast, BUT......

Not everyone lives in an area of the country or a part of the world where “stacks of matzah” are sitting on grocery market shelves beaconing us toward Passover. I was surprised that a Reformed podcast wasn’t more aware of this fact. In rural, eastern NC where we live, we are lucky to even find matzah (usually mingled among the Easter items, BTW).

While my congregation is very small and survives thanks to the efforts of our lay-leaders, we should always remember that a candle burns even more brightly when surrounded by complete darkness.

Happy Passover!

Wonderful taste of Torah!

As a new student to Judaism and someone heading towards conversion, this podcast is more than helpful. Rabbi Jacobs’ take on the Torah portion of the week not only explain the stories but also connect them to today’s world. Thank you for this thoughtful and beautiful podcast!
