All are invited to join us this Erev Shabbat to hear Rabbi Toba Spitzer discuss her new book, “God Is Here: Re-Imagining the Divine.”

We are proud to host Rabbi Spitzer at our annual Rabbi Beryl D. Cohon Memorial Lecture. Rabbi Toba Spitzer is the rabbi at Congregation Dorshei Tzedek in West Newton, MA. Her new book “God Is Here: Re-Imagining the Divine” re-casts the Jewish discussion of God and explores the metaphors that Judaism has used throughout history for discussing God.

Going back to the earliest sources, she discovers in the Hebrew Bible a rich and varied palette of metaphors for the divine—including Water, Voice, Fire, Rock, Cloud, and even the process of Becoming. She will discuss how we can access these ancient metaphors to experience holiness in our daily lives and to guide us in challenging times.
