101, Ritual, Prayer & Spirituality, Text & Thought

For many, the word "G-d" carries so much baggage, so much pain, that we find it virtually impossible to find spirituality in our Judaism. Spiritual 'scar tissue' exerts itself on us, making engaging Jewishly very painful. Changing our relationship to "G-d" and replacing old images of the Divine can be the most important step we take on the road to revitalizing our Jewish spiritual life. In this time together, we will look at some radical teachings from Rav Kook and other masters that invite us to go beyond the narrow definitions we have of G-d, refreshing ourselves by expanding our relational palette.
