Rabbi Naomi Levy, one of the leading Jewish spiritual leaders in America, will discuss her new book, Einstein and the Rabbi: Searching for the Soul. The program will be at the MAR JCC on January 9 at 8 PM, with a reception at 7:30. This book discusses an exchange of letters between a rabbi and Einstein about the nature of the soul, a question many of us have, and yet few in the Jewish community actually talk about. It is also a personal memoir about her own spiritual journey, which began with a traumatic tragedy in her own life. The lessons we hear can help us on our own spiritual journeys.
One reader remarked, “Rabbi Levy's writing touches the soul. She has a talent for stirring the spirit through her accessible, unpretentious yet profound style that takes us places we didn't expect. Her openness inspires our own and invites us to nurture our spiritual lives. I loved this book and wholeheartedly recommend it.”
