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.
