From Metaphor to Practice: An Exploration with Rabbi Toba Spitzer — God as Water and as Voice

Wednesday, November 30, 2022 6 Kislev 5783

7:30 PM - 8:45 PMZoom

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 One: God as Water and as Voice How do we nourish our spirits through prayer, song, meditation, and other Jewish rituals? In preparation for this class, please read chapters 3 & 5 in God is Here (although it is fine to attend if you have not).

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 if purchasing the book is an obstacle. Please have a copy in preparation for the class!
