Are you interested in learning more about Jewish Renewal—and understanding your own relationship to Judaism as a spiritual practice? This month we're launching From Reb Zalman's Bookcase, a book club series that will bring us a multivocal intro to Jewish Renewal, Reb Zalman Shachter-Shalomi's legacy.

We’re starting with Jewish with Feeling, by R'Zalman and Joel Segel, and will meet in a Somerville location at the end of the month for a rich discussion. If you’re reading the book and plan to come to the discussion, please let us know.

As an added bonus, Joel Segel will be joining our discussion! Joel not only brings the perspective of having collaborated on this material with Reb Zalman, but also a healthy dose of skepticism that will help ground our conversation. Please don’t think of this as a Q&A, though—our main aim is to understand more about how this material affects our lives through dialogue.

There are a dozen copies of the book in the Minuteman network of local libraries, as well as many used copies available on alibris for $1.99 plus shipping.

Check out our FAQ page. For more information, send us an email.
