In this week’s talk, we take ten steps back and look at life from the beginning to the end. From before the world was created, to the spiritual evolution leading to its perfection, to what was said at Mount Sinai, to understanding the role of human beings in this world. We also look at the letter Aleph in a new way, and see how it maps out the world, illustrates our humanity, and shows how we can achieve our shared destiny.

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.
