As the year 5779 (Sept 2019 - Sept 2020) began I felt a longing to reopen my spiritual life. Knowing that my experiences with Christianity can best be likened to an abusive relationship, and inspired by my Facebook
friends' posts about Rosh Hashanah I began a journey into Judaism. I was honored with an invitation by a friend to celebrate Yom Kippur with them at
Nishamat Shoom. This experience was eye-opening and transformative, and left me with a hunger to learn more. That hunger propeled me head over heels into Torah. Through
SVARA style beit midrash I found new communities and new langauge to describe the richness of creation, and holiness of the Creator.
