The Book of Life Project
We will reflect on the meaning of life and death, coping with our own mortality and generating hope during dark times.
The Book of Life Project is a learning, reflection, and spiritual deepening process that encourages a writing practice based on our deepest yearning that we and those we love will be "written into the Book of Life-Zochreinu L'Chayyim" for a year of goodness, health, and peace. The Book of Life Project gives each person the opportunity to make this tradition real in their lives as we meet weekly (in person and now on ZOOM) for meditation, reflection, study, and community. It is our opportunity to partner with our future selves.
Matthew, Sydney, and Yoshi met in their first year of Rabbinical School in Jerusalem at the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in 1992 and almost 30 years later re-united to create the Book of Life Project and share their love of Torah, spirituality and each other with the world. From Sea to Sea, the east coast to the west coast, The Book of Life is a Project close to their hearts that was born of a unique spark of Torah fire that all three Rabbis share in their own synagogue communities and wanted to find a way to share with people around the world.
