And God says, "Where are you?"

Beginning next month, I will teaching a new class at Adas Israel here in Washington, D.C., called "Akeya: Soulful Jewish Education."

Ayeka is the first question in the Torah: In the Garden of Eden, when God asks Adam, “Where are you?” -- Adam is hiding. This is an eternal paradigm: We all hide, at times, in different ways.

The goal of this new approach is to create a venue in which we can stop hiding in order to explore our personal relationship with God, and to see how this relationship can impact our lives. It is possible to imbue our relationships, our work, and our entire lives with a sense of living in the image of God.
I hope you will join me as we explore what traditional Jewish texts and our own personal experience can teach us about our relationship with God and how we can use this relationship to enhance our lives and to bring out the best in ourselves and in all our personal relationships.
