Judaism without the “ism”

Judaism without the “ism”

For those of you who enjoyed our passionate discussion on modern Judaism with Rabbi Tom Samuels last week at Unity in Chicago (video here), you’re in for a treat!

I will be having another lively and LIVE discussion with him this Monday. Tune in and embrace the inherently beautiful messiness of Life!

MONDAY, May 2nd, 2016

Rabbi Tom writes….

“The American Jewish community is in a time of uncertainty and wandering. All that we know for certain is that our future will look different than the present. Jewish identity is volitional: fluid, ever-changing, and based on individual choice. You no longer have to marry Jewish, attend Yom Kippur services, or even love pastrami on rye with a pickle to be Jewish. You can be Jewish simply by deciding
that is who you are.”

Rabbi Tom has a Bachelors in Accounting and Jewish Studies (Yeshiva University), a Masters of Landscape Architecture (University of Guelph), a Masters in Jewish Professional Studies (Spertus), a Fellowship in Israel Education (Spertus), and a Certificate in Jewish Leadership (Northwestern/Spertus). His ordination is from the
Jewish Spiritual Learning institute, JSLI.
