Exploring the new Jewish spirituality — what’s new, what’s not so new —

with two generations of Jewish spiritual innovators

January 31, 2010

Join Nishmat Hayyim, JBooks.com, and Zeek, together with over twenty cosponsoring organizations, for a unique evening of discussion, connection, and celebration in honor of the new book by Forward 50 award winner Jay Michaelson, Everything is God: The Radical Path of Nondual Judaism.

Learn about new forms of Jewish spirituality & community with Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg (Surprised by God), Jay Michaelson, and a panel of experts.  This fascinating panel discussion will explore how the generation of the iPod has begun to develop new responses to the crises of modernity and post-modernity.  Neo-Hasidic hip-hop, independent prayer groups, the Jewish food movement, eco-kashrut, GLBT/queer Jewish organizations, and “integral Judaism” are some examples of this newest wave of Jewish spiritual reinvention.  What’s new here, and what’s not so new?  Are these new developments to be welcomed, or feared?   Featuring personal life stories, humor, and the insights from multiple spiritual traditions, the panel will be a rare opportunity to explore these inspiring and fascinating new forms of spirituality first-hand with some of those who are creating them.

Connect at a “county fair” of Jewish innovators and meet the people responsible for this new flowering of Jewish spiritual creativity!

Celebrate with musical performances by Rakia, an eco-kosher reception and book signing, and plenty of time to meet and mingle with today’s leading Jewish spiritual innovators.
