Jewish Responses to Maladies of the Soul

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In this session, we ask three spiritual seekers to share their Jewish journeys. We ask them how their spiritual paths have overlapped with and possibly veered away from Judaism. We also ask them what they regard to be contemporary maladies of the soul and to share what Jewish practices can be harnessed as responses to the ailments of our time.
