Adapting Podcast - Spirituality: The essence of Jewish education
What is Jewish spirituality? For that matter, what is spirituality, and why is it an important, even necessary part of life? Rabbi Josh Feigelson and Michal Smart Fox of the Institute for Jewish Spirituality join David Bryfman to discuss what it means to have a Jewish spiritual practice, and why understanding spirituality is critical for Jewish educators. They look at how COVID has changed our collective quest for spirituality, and the growing body of research that points to the benefits a regular spiritual practice can have. Be sure to look out for when Peloton sneaks into the conversation!
If you’ve never experienced Jewish spirituality, be sure to stick around until the end of the episode for a short Jewish spiritual practice led by Rabbi Feigelson.
