Justin David, “Longing: Jewish Meditations on a Hidden God” at A Taste of Honey
Sponsored by: JCC of Greater New Haven
Justin David has been the Rabbi of Congregation B’nai Israel in Northampton since 2002. During that time, he has helped the community grow through his commitment to social justice, inclusion, innovation in worship, Jewish education and interfaith work.
“Longing: Jewish Meditations on a Hidden God” weaves together personal narrative, Jewish mysticism, biblical stories and a range of Jewish thinkers to reflect on the hidden God at the heart of Jewish tradition. It elicits the universal experience of yearning for closeness to someone or some being that we feel we need, but are never sure exists. Along the way, the book takes us on a journey that has us think about our relationships to our parents, to those whom we love, to the sources of Judaism, to God, and ultimately to the “Nothingness” that is, in fact, everything.
