From Metaphor to Practice: An Exploration with Rabbi Toba Spitzer — The God-Cloud and Becoming

Wednesday, December 21, 2022 27 Kislev 5783

7:30 PM - 8:45 PMZoom


Class recording (currently processing)



Working with Rabbi Toba’s new book, God Is Here: Reimagining the Divine, we will explore how different metaphors for understanding and experiencing the sacred can shape our spiritual and ethical practices, on both an individual and communal level. How might experiencing God/liness as Water, as Rock, as Fire, as Becoming, affect the ways we pray, care for one another, work for justice? Participants are encouraged to read the relevant chapter(s) in God Is Here before each class. 

Session Four: The God-Cloud and Becoming When so many forces in society threaten to tear us apart, what might God/liness have to do with fostering community?  If possible, please read chapter 7, "The God-Cloud," in preparation for this class.

Join Rabbi Toba as we come up with answers to these questions and more — please register on Zoom using the link above.

Copies of God Is Here are available from the CDT office for $20, or can be purchased online; please be in touch with Rabbi Toba at 
t.spitzer@dorsheitzedek.org if purchasing the book is an obstacle. Please have a copy in preparation for the class!
