Have you had a question come into your head you struggled to answer? Likely that is something that has happened. As a rabbi and teacher, I like to pursue those questions with you. They can be big questions or small questions; existential, spiritual or any other kind that you might be pondering. Judaism has much wisdom and insight to share about how you answer your questions and make meaning. I am here to serve as a guide on your journey.
About a year ago or so, an idea began to coalesce. A few of us rabbis, notably from the ranks of the Rabbis Without Borders of which I am a proud fellow thought about ways to engage people who might not have the opportunity to speak with a rabbi. We did not have any prerequisites, just the understanding that the chance to start a conversation was an opportunity not to be missed.
You can find us in the public spaces. We come in various sizes and shapes, the common identifier is a small placard inviting you to ‘Ask the Rabbi’ (that we do not have uniforms is another question for another day). Come by and visit, ask a question, just say hello. Ask what I am doing (quick answer: looking to engage you). Hopefully, we start a conversation that can continue.
But there is no need to wait. You can email me at RabbiDavidLevin@gmail.com or complete the comments section below with a question or comment. I will do my best to give a response and open it up to a discussion.
