Special Holiday Edition – Shavuot

The real focus of the Ten Commandments is not how a ‘person’ acts; instead, it is about how ‘people’ respond to one another. The hope is not that we be perfect beings but rather that we be present and engaged ones. Each commandment is an invitation to be a better partner in the relationship.

Welcome to the “Raising Holy Sparks” podcast! Hope you enjoy these short weekly insights into the torah portion! This week we dive deep into the holiday of Shavuot.

Texts mentioned in connection with the holiday of Shavuot:

  • Elie Wiesel – “The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it’s indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it’s indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it’s indifference.”

Thanks for listening and looking forward to being on this journey through the books of the Torah with you!
