    Writing as Spiritual Practice

    Writing as Spiritual Practice

    On this episode of Speaking Torah, we’re introducing you to a tefillah with a difference. In this particular tefillah group, Rabbi Sharon Cohen Anisfeld leads the students not only in writing reflections on the prayers, but writing as an act of prayer. It is both the writing and the reading of poetry that allows for a deeply creative connection to The Divine. The poems are based on liturgy, combining ancient voices with their own, resulting in a truly timeless prayer.

    Poetry as Midrash

    Poetry as Midrash

    In this episode, we’re sharing a discussion between Hebrew College faculty member Rabbi Rachel Adelman and her Rabbinical Student Risa Dunbar, about the power of poetry as midrash: the stories that open our text to even more questioning, along with understanding. Both writers bring their individual voices and experiences into the conversation with the text, allowing the ancient words a new place in the modern era.

Gratefully Human ,

Jacob’s Ladder re-imagined

Such a beautiful essay and image. A clarion call to answer God’s call “ Where are you?” with the Hineni of immersion in the complex, sometimes dark and always difficult work of Tikkun. It is not distant and far away, rather the spiritual path to redemption is right in front of us.
Thank you.
