About Nourishing The Soul
There has never been a more exciting time to live a Jewish life, nor more opportunity to access Jewish thought and ritual to add to our spiritual growth. Nourishing The Soul (NTS) provides access to diverse expressions of Judaism's traditions and perspectives. An outgrowth of the pedagogy of the great teachers at whose feet I learned and with whom I have been privileged to work, NTS provides an environment for the diversity of the Jewish community to delve into Jewish text, ritual and thought to inform our every day. NTS Workshops are the culmination of years of facilitation and teaching Jewish and Jewish-adjacent adults and teens about the powerful tools for life that Judaism offers all of us. In an open and inclusive environment, we weave together the wisdom of our sages, our modern teachers and each other.
