Clearing the Mud is where you will find my educational content. I’m really passionate about fusing the raw, messy human experience with the age old teachings of the Torah. Lots of what you see from me is about the human experience. However, I also teach what our ancestors have been relying on to get through the human experience called the Torah.
We are all born imperfect, this is inherent to the human condition. The novelty is how we repair.
By normalizing struggle, we can accelerate the process of healing.
Igeres Hateshuva teaches that return and connection can happen anytime, anywhere. When we parent, the most powerful tool we have is the repair, the return to our child. The flaws are there. The question is, how do we reconnect after things go awry? It is the same dynamic with Hashem. The cultural zeitgeist is saturated with a desire for collective and societal responsibility. I wonder, if we introduce the same accountability for individual growth and healing, what the impact would be on bigger societal dilemmas?
