One of my favorite things at Beit T’Shuvah is happening tonight: the Beit T’Shuvah talent show. 

In keeping with the theme of addiction, I want to explain to you why this talent show... read on

    By Rabbi Mark Borovitz

    This Sunday is Super Bowl Sunday. I am struck by the attention given to God this past week in newspapers and media. It reminded me of a Bob Dylan song, With God on Our Side. In it, Dylan recounts many atrocities that were committed in God’s Name. So the... read on

    There is an ancient myth that states that the act of reading is an enlightening experience.  Supposedly, the printed page expands the mind— whether it’s Socrates, the Bible, Ginsberg, or Stephanie Meyer.  If I were to try to pinpoint the moment in history when... read on

    By Rachel Goldman Neubauer

    I used to be a really jealous person.  I don’t know if that was my nature or if I was conditioned to be that way—growing up as a performer, it sort of seems that competition and jealousy would be things that go hand-in-hand.  Either way, I found it hard... read on
