Knowledge & Faith - Part 12 "Paradise" (Recorded at the Intown Jewish Academy on December 10, 2017) Most religions speak of a "Paradise" that one enjoys after one's time on earth. Judaism is no exception. The concept of Divine reward is foundation to Jewish belief, and Jewish literature is replete with discussions of "Gan Eden" and "Olam Habah," i.e., Paradise. But what exactly is Paradise? What is the experience like? Where does it take place? And who's there? In this session of Kabbalah...

12/17/2017
More
For G-d's Sake Are We Capable of Altruism? We get it. It’s hard to always be firing on all cylinders. We’re talking in a spiritual sense -- to always be doing good things for the right reasons. So, go ahead and do what it takes to get the job done. But remember, there’s one part that you should always keep sacred, a lone pocket of truth that is altruistic and pure. And it’s burning right there -- in the Chanukah candles.

Game of Names Who Is the Real Jew? What’s the ideal modus operandi? Aggressive and brash, and assertive and confident? Or perhaps more reconciliatory and compromising, and meager and humble. It is this identity crisis that unfolds over the name change from “Jacob” to “Israel.” That both names are kept for posterity speaks volumes to our approach in life as servants of the Divine.

Rosh Chodesh Society "Pause & Affect" Lesson 1: Gift of Rest With Mrs. Dena Schusterman It is difficult to imagine today a society functioning without a weekend, but this institution was unheard of in the ancient world. Societies customarily celebrated seasonal holidays, but the notion of a universal weekend -- where an entire society would take a day off each week -- was nonexistent. In fact, Greek and Roman writers habitually mocked the Jews for their Shabbat. Yet, these mockeries were...
