Rachel Timoner

Lightning on the mountain. Plagues as punishment. War and bloodshed. The God of Torah can be difficult to relate to, even alienating, for our congregants, and for us. How might we connect our own spiritual practices and beliefs with this God? Join with Rabbi Rachel Timoner of Leo Baeck Temple in Los Angeles and author of Breath of Life: God as Spirit in Judaism, as she takes you on a journey through Torah to find a new look at the God within the scroll. Tracing ruach through its 378 appearances in Tanach, Timoner finds that God shows up as ruach while creating the world, endowing humans with understanding, and urging us to redeem our world. Be part of this conversation and discover a God you just might relate to.
