I want to talk about a subject that I don’t hear discussed that often which is doubt. A lot of us experience doubt even at the same time we experience faith. We think “you know there must be something wrong with me, if I have questions in my mind. It must mean I don’t really believe, because if I did how could I have questions?” So what I’m trying to do in this talk today is to talk on a cosmic level, about how Gd made doubt, and that one can experience doubt even in the presence of belief, and that doesn’t wipe out the good of the belief. You know sometimes you’ve got the wrong shoes and you get a callous on your toe. You don’t change your life upside down because you’ve got a callous on your toe. It’s part of the normal order of things.

Holy Brother: Inspiring Stories and Enchanted Tales about Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach
This may be my favorite Jewish book of all time. It’s a collection of first person accounts of people’s encounters with Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach. You’ll literally laugh, cry, be inspired beyond belief and want to be a better person.
The Wisdom in the Hebrew Alphabet
From the very first Kabbalistic work, through the Talmud, through an impressive array of rabbinic literature, great minds have found the Aleph-Beis to be a gold mine of wisdom and guidance. This fascinating best-seller weaves these golden threads into a glorious tapestry, presenting hundreds of ideas and comments on the Aleph-Beis, including: the Aleph-Beis as the force of Creation, as a primer for Jewish living, and as a fountainhead of Torah insight and mystical meaning. The product of decades of learning, thinking, and teaching by the revered educator, lecturer, and community activist Rabbi Michael L. Munk. A treat not to be missed.
