About this Episode

Rabbi Zoe Klein leads an online discussion about the importance of curiousity and it's place in Jewish spiritual growth.

Albert Einstein said, “One cannot help but be in awe when one contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality.” Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel said, “Our goal should be to live life in radical amazement…To be spiritual is to be amazed.” In this discussion Rabbi Klein explores the soul-trait of Curiosity and having a Beginner’s Mind.

Zoë Klein serves as the spiritual leader of Temple Isaiah in Los Angeles. After graduating from Brandeis University with a B.A. in Psychology, she pursued the rabbinate out of a passion for ancient texts, mythology, liturgy and poetry. She received ordination from Hebrew Union College – Jewish Institute of Religion in 1998.

This discussion was conducted via Zoom on August 19, 2020 as part of the Elul+ Pre-Tishre study program presented by Temple Beth Am Los Angeles.
