Wonderful

This podcast is in-depth, but not overwhelming. It reminds me of a “College Torah/Old Testament 150 Class” and would likely be appreciated by people from many religious traditions. The rabbi is interesting and does a great job of keeping everyone engaged, without “lowering” herself to doing silly jokes that tend to fall flat, especially in today’s “Zoom” culture. I have learned a lot and am very grateful to have found this podcast. Finally, “hats off” to the online “students” for politely participating, without talking “over” one another, grandstanding, or interrupting one another.... You probably have no idea of how refreshing it is to “attend” with such a polite group, but you are definitely appreciated!!

Best parsha podcast you’ve never heard of

The Rabbi has a great wit and great depth of historical and cultural knowledge, as well as a modern critical lens - you learn a lot and never have to suspend any disbelief to get meaning out of each podcast. It’s like taking a class every week with a favorite professor!
