"Revelation is a Whisper" – Rabbi Inbger's Sermon
When we want to convince someone we are right, which is more effective--to raise the volume, or lower it? Does God need to scream, or does he whisper? Last week’s Torah portion reveals that the holiest teaching might come from an outsider, yet it is an outsider who is in close relationship. In fact, Moses receives the best advice from his very own father-in-law, who is not Jewish. Here, revelation begins with intimacy. What would the world, and this country, look like if we all spoke in softer tones?

Meditation, Magic, and Cosmic Architecture: Close Readings of Sefer Yetzirah with Rav Kohenet Jill Hammer

Shabbat Afternoon 2/9, 3/23, 4/13, 5/11, 6/15 @ 5 PM
Romemu - 165 West 105th Street, 3rd Floor

Sefer Yetzirah is an ancient work of Jewish mysticism. This brief and cryptic book imagines letters as the building blocks of the universe, focusing our attention on the components of space, time, and soul and the elements of air, fire, and water. We will read sections from the book to understand the practices of Sefer Yetzirah and their potential role in contemporary Jewish belief and contemplative practice. We will also be using the book to meditate and reflect on our own spiritual experience.

Please email eden@romemu.org to register.
