    Mezuza – Our Best Selves at the Doorway

    Mezuza – Our Best Selves at the Doorway

    We are proud that Pardes's efforts to build a new facility in Jerusalem continue to move forward despite the challenges of the current moment. While most of us remain confined to our homes, a new home for our Torah, for our students and alumni, and for the vision of Jewish life we are promoting is coming to fruition, one day at a time.



    In this vein, we are excited to share Home is where the Torah is, the podcast recorded in our homes, and sent directly to yours. In this series, you will hear from six of our incredible teachers as they consider the various components that make up the concept of home and what makes a true home from a Jewish perspective. Rabbi Leon Morris will also have the opportunity to engage in conversation with the gifted architect of our new building Matti Rosenshine, as we think about the ways in which our new building will become our new collective home.



    Mezuza - Our Best Selves at the Doorway Episode Description (38m 21s):

    Together we will explore classical sources that offer insight into the nature of this mitzvah (1:00). What is it trying to teach us and how can the mezuza be a simple but critical tool to help become our best selves. After the lecture, (26:38) Rabbi Leon Morris and Matti Rosenshine discuss the concept of beauty in architecture and connection between spaces.

    The Windows of the Beit Midrash Episode Description (31m 09s):

    "כי באור פניך נתת לנו תורת חיים"

    “By the Light of Your Face, You have given us Living Torah”

    Light and windows impact our experience so profoundly that they blur the boundaries between symbol and reality. (1:00)  The windows of the Temple serve as a prod to help us explore the kinds of windows we want to build in our homes and our holy communal spaces. Following the podcast, (24:10) Rabbi Leon Morris asks Matti Rosenshine about the importance of light in a building, and how an architect balances intimacy of space with transparency, and what the architect must do to properly include light in all intimate spaces.
