Greetings to readers of this blog! The reason I’m at Pardes is to deepen my learning, undisturbed by the demands of my daily life in Charlottesville, VA, USA. I’m studying to be a rabbi through ALEPH: Alliance for Jewish Renewal. I’ve been involved in Jewish renewal practices since 1991. For me, Jewish renewal means a deep committed to Jewish life, Jewish practice, Jewish study and the Jewish people. It means, also, approaching all of these religious components with openness and full involvement: heart, mind, spirit, body. Psychological awareness, interpersonal sensitivity, mindfulness and consciousness are all factors of Jewish renewal practice. Feel free to ask me if you’d like to know more.
