“My study of Torah has expanded my intellectual and moral imagination. My observance of Jewish ritual has equipped me with tools to face these challenging times. My mindfulness and meditation practice has taught me how to move more wisely in the world. And my relationship with the divine has helped me approach my fellow being with an open heart.”
