From Metaphor to Practice: An Exploration with Rabbi Toba Spitzer — God as Place and Rock of Refuge

Wednesday, December 7, 2022 13 Kislev 5783

7:30 PM - 8:45 PMZoom

Class recording 

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 Two: God as Place & Rock of Refuge — Where is the divine as we support one another in times of transition and crisis, illness and mourning?  Please read Chapters 4 & 6 in preparation for the class if possible.

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!
