Our Lives as Torah
Finding God in Our Own Stories
  • By Carol Ochs
More and more thoughtful Jews are coming to discover that the impersonal God they learned about in Hebrew school is not the God they now know and love. But few know how to articulate their personal relationship with this transcendent presence - so their extraordinary discoveries remain hidden inside themselves rather than shared and celebrated with others. In this volume, ordinary Jews offer their very personal reflections on how they recognize God at work in their lives, loves, and communities, using biblical texts to examine these stories. The work provides spiritual direction for the growing number of Jewish seekers - and those who advise them. It invites ordinary people to examine their own spirituality rather than relying on heavy theology and didactic religiosity - and yet honours the traditional Jewish scriptures. Jews are helped to learn to know and love God in an intimate, relevant way and to recognize how God is already working in their lives. The text draws from the riches of Torah and other important sources of Jewish wisdom.
