Experiencing the Jewish Renaissance in Europe

Posted by Rabbi Goldie Milgram |

Presently traveling and teaching in Spain, Germany and Holland with such awe for the transformations in Jewish life. New communities abound in the progressive world, with such well-trained rabbis and cantors and SPIRIT! Sunday night, with awe and love, I'm priviledge to teach in Zeist on the Anan HaKavod--the Cloud of Glory, which Torah and our sages connect in such wonderful ways to Sukkot. Chag sameach to all!

Days 37-42

Posted by Rabbi Goldie Milgram |

Today is Day 41 of the 6th week of the Omer. It has been a very challenging week personally and worldwide. Today til sundown is Yesod within Yesod. Tzeitl Locher connects Yesod with the "Staff of Knowledge, made of a branch of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. It is the staff that helps people to distinguish between the good - the life enhancing - and evil - the life impoverishing..." Jewish tradition views this branch/staff as having been passed down through the generations, and just as G*d "gave the staff to Adam out of love...and it was received in love.
