Making Modern Meaning from Our Ancient Texts

On Seven Minute Torah, we discuss the weekly Torah portion in about 7 to 10 minutes. Weaving together philosophy, spirituality and tradition, we make modern meaning from our ancient sacred texts – reading them through liberal Jewish eyes.

Longer episodes include a bonus interview with leading rabbis and Jewish thought leaders.

Vayetze: Nobody is the Villain of their Own Story (A Conversation with Rabbi Geoff Mitelman) Seven Minute Torah

Vayetze tells the story of Jacob – his journey to Aram, his business dealings, his family life. This week I talk with Rabbi Geoff Mitelman, Founder of Sinai and Synapses, about the phenomenon of lying and dishonesty: why it's so prevalent in the Torah portion, how it plays into our political culture, and how it is born out of human nature. We also talk about his work at the intersection of science and religion.
