Purim: redemption and the true king
This week's portion: Tzav, "command"


I just spent an hour on the phone with Rodger Kamenetz, interviewing him for a forthcoming profile piece in Zeek.

Rodger Kamenetz, y'all. Whose book The Jew in the Lotus is arguably what set me on the path toward Jewish Renewal and toward my rabbinate. We talked about his new book, about dreams, about the power of the image and the power of the word, about poetry and mysticism and God.

This is one of those times when I really like my life.

(Also, stay tuned for the interview, which will hopefully run in the June issue of Zeek.)
