Explore the Torah portion in an interesting and relevant way. Each week Rabbi Micah Streiffer discusses the parashah (Torah portion) in about 7 to 10 minutes. We make modern meaning from ancient texts, addressing them through inclusive, liberal Jewish eyes. We weave together philosophy, spirituality, tradition, and social justice – and derive meaning for today‘s life from our sacred sources.

Longer episodes include a bonus interview with leading rabbis and Jewish thought leaders.
