Wonderful insight

As a deist who is exploring their Jewish ancestry and more about the Jewish faith and how it relations today. I find Rabbi Rick Jacobs a welcoming addition to my podcast feed weekly. He provides the Torah portion in a way this non-Jew can understand. Sometimes I have to wait till I am in the right mindset to listen, if I am stressed or distracted with work or other worries because I want to be able to reflect on the words clearly. I look foward to more years of this podcast and more from the URJ

Diversify to improve

Listening to Rabbi Jacobs every week for the first few months was fine, but in the intro it says he will sometimes have a guest. With 900 congregations in the Reform Movement, there should be more guests. They say every rabbi really has one sermon to give. We’ve heard Rabbi Jacob’s sermon. How about inviting more rabbis?
