"The Mask: Deeper Insights into Purim" w Rabbi Mati Miller

Over the next few weeks we’ll be delving into the deeper meaning behind the holiday of Purim.

  • Why do we dress up in costume?
  • Why do we drink and feast?
  • Why is this holiday so special?

"Making Mistakes and Staying Happy" w Rabbi Carter Schwartz

  • Is there any place for “Jewish Guilt” in genuine Jewish philosophy?
  • If regret and happiness are both such praiseworthy feelings in Judaism and are intended to coexist, how can one maintain this psychological balance?
  • The sages say that the righteous person falls seven times and gets up… Why must there be a fall? Can’t a person be righteous without having to experience the fall? How does this apply to various aspects of our lives and relationships?

"Marriage: a Straight Forward and Honest Discussion" w Rabbi JP Katz

If so many fail, why should we still get married?

  • Why marriage?
  • What is the purpose?
  • How is the Torah perspective unique?

Join Rabbi Katz in an honest discussion about marriage at JPULSE.
