"Because My Soul Longs for You" with Rabbi Rachel Steiner

In Person & Online

Nov. 21 | Dec. 12, 19 | Jan. TBD | 9:30 - 11 AM

Where can we find God in our lives?  Can we have this divine connection without a belief in God?  In what parts of our lives might we have this experience - in illness, in joy, in grief, in our day-to-day living, in art?

Join Rabbi Steiner in person at Barnert or online (via Zoom) as we explore a brand new book, Because My Soul Longs for You: Integrating Theology into Our Lives.  In this four-part series, we will explore multiple experiences of the Divine: through prayer, study, poetry, food, music, service, movement, meditation, interpersonal connection, and more.  Scroll down to register.  Be sure to indicate if you are joining us in person or online in the Notes section of your Registration.  (Zoom details are on our Online Community page).

During these times of uncertainty, let’s find sparks of comfort and hope and connection through the essays we will explore, and try out new language together.

Assignment Prior to First Class:
Please read the Introductions.  That is not a typo - there are two Introductions that are quite different from each other and both are worthwhile.  Definitely read the first Introduction which begins on page ix, as it is important to set the stage for the book, and offers some common language we will want to be familiar with.  The second, which begins on page xv, is a really helpful historical introduction that I think is worth reading, as long as you are prepared for something more dense. 
***Don't let this scare you away:  You can do this class without a mastery of what’s there!***

I would also like you to read Chapters 1-3, pages 3-32.  These are not dense and should read easily.  Take notes, write down your questions, and notice what resonates with you and what doesn’t!
