Adapting Podcast: When "Good Enough" Isn't Good Enough
Can you imagine if your congregation had 100% participation for every Friday night Kabbalat Shabbat service? According to Rabbi Matt Dreffin of the Goldring/Woldenberg Institute of Southern Jewish Life, that's typically the case in some small Jewish communities he works with. Rabbi Dreffin speaks with David Bryfman about the vitality of Jewish life in the South, how he designs intensely detailed curriculum with the intention that anyone- even people with no Jewish knowledge- could teach Hebrew school, and what is feels like to be the first Jewish person someone meets. He even plays a bit of blues guitar!
