AUTHENTIC JEWISH SPIRITUALITY – EVEN FOR SKEPTICS WHO THINK THERE ISN’T ANY

November 9, 7:00 pm

 

ANNUAL LECTURE IN MEMORY OF RABBI MARK DOV SHAPIRO Z”L

Yes, Virginia, there is Jewish spirituality, and it is more than fluff. It runs deep through Jewish texts and the ordinary Jewish practices that we mistakenly take for granted. Visits to Israel, Torah study, even the blessings we say over food — all of these carry distinctively Jewish approaches to life, the cosmos, and the ethics that ought to drive us. It is thoughtful Jewish spirituality that connects the dots of our lives and shapes a world in which we matter.
